Meet Melissa

Hi! My name is Melissa Hammerle and I am the owner and photographer at Harper Matthew Photography, previously known as Wishful Memories. In 2011my husband Matt, who is the driving force behind me doing this, decided it was time for me to take my passion for capturing life's sweetest moments and do something productive with it.  So here we are! Since opening our doors, we've had 3 beautiful children; Paisley-Kate (5), Parker (4), and Porter (1). Having our own family really is what drives me to capture your family perfectly the way it is. As we spend time together, I hope to get to know you and your family, and the things that are important to you when it comes to your sessions.

Right before we got married we opened Wishful Memories knowing we could offer an affordable option to photography but still give excellent quality and service. This remains our goal even as our business has grown and exceeded our wildest expectations. It is my greatest joy and honor to capture your favorite memories on camera, and I hope you will cherish them for a lifetime.

I cant wait to work with you, and to hopefully help you stop some moments in time.
