Welcome to My World
My name is Melissa Damon and I am a fantasy portrait photographer. I love to take photos of clients in costumes of all kinds: steampunk, renaissance, medieval, cosplay, anime, historical, pirate, superhero, and so much more! I am a firm believer in the empowerment of cosplay, and that having a photographer that specializes in costumed portraiture on your side will help bring your character to life.
Booking is easy!!!
Step one: Press the “Book a Session” button to pick a package and book your consult. If you are unsure of which package to choose, check out our portrait sessions page or just book a consult to talk about your ideas. You can also email me questions at: [email protected]
Step two: Bring lots of fun ideas to your consultation appointment. I am currently holding the consultation on zoom for the comfort of my clients. At the appointment, we will talk about your character and vision for the shoot. We also discuss a date for the shoot, time, colors, location, theme, and more. If you already have the costume completed, this is a great opportunity to see it and any props, inspirational images or vision boards, other members in the group (if applicable). It is a great opportunity to let your imagination go wild as we plan out our epic fantasy portrait shoot.
Step three: Show up at the photography shoot and let’s have a great time! We will work together as a team to create amazing poses and strong images. It is not just about taking pictures! This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to feel the empowerment of the character while capturing the moment in a series of photos that will last a lifetime. You put hard work into creating your costume. Let us give it the attention it – and you – deserve!
Step four: Your professional edited photos will be emailed to you on your password protected online gallery of images within 1-2 weeks. Enjoy the photos in your package, or add some more from our massive a la carte menu that even includes mugs, luggage tags, calendars, and more!
