I’m Melissa and I like to make things look good. I’m a Vancouver based photographer and filmmaker who shoots commercial, weddings and engagements by day; and esports and the rock and roll concert scene by night. It’s kind of like Bruce Wayne turning into Batman, but less dangerous. (And probably a whole lot less cool.):
