Hello & Welcome!

Super glad you’re here! I’m Melissa, a photographer based in Chilliwack. I also service the Fraser Valley, the Vancouver area and beyond. I started m.houser photography back in 2009 and have really dedicated the past several years to specializing in laid back, outdoor weddings. As well as documenting fun families! I love natural, honest and joyful imagery. I live for those in-between, candid moments. I love getting to know each of my clients, and take a limited amount of bookings to ensure that you are well taken care of. If you are in the midst of planning your wedding, or would like to create some fun images of your family, I would love to hear from you! 

Other Tidbits

  • Cats are my favourite. We have three of them.

  • I believe the most growth & improvement is on the other side of being uncomfortable.
