I approach wedding photography with my own combination of photojournalistic and traditional portraiture styles.  Your wedding is one of the best days of your life- and I absolutely LOVE capturing it!

 

ENGAGEMENTS

I LOVE capturing newly engaged couples.  A nice relaxed setting allows couples to get comfortable in front of the camera.  This will come in handy on your big day. 

 

PORTRAITS

I love capturing candids of families interacting with each other.  I'm based out of Long Beach Island, NJ which offers the perfect scenery for family portraits.

ABOUT MELANIE CUDNIK

lbiphotographermelaniecassie.jpg

I love taking photographs as forever keepsakes!  Whether it's a family portrait, wedding, surfing or special event, I capture the moments.  

Growing up in the Long Beach Island area, I've experienced all of its beauty.  The gorgeous beaches, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Barnegat Bay offer many different settings.  The sunrises and sunsets are breath taking. 

It was natural to take up photography as a hobby.  It became my passion and still to this day, I can't put my camera down. I remember as a child I was obsessed with America's Next Top Model.  Nigel Barker had an amazing eye, and there was nothing like seeing the end result of the photos.  This is where I think I began to love photography. 

While I enjoy shooting landscapes, my niche is with people, especially kids. I would describe myself as a lifestyle photographer with a hint of drama. I am big on off camera flash and having a great deal of contrast.  

I see the beauty in people and love to take photos as a return to a moment otherwise gone.
