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 date/time for a consult. It is a free zoom appointment where we talk about your photo vision and how we can accomplish it. There are no hidden fees. You can view the packages and prices on our portrait sessions page and pick what works best for you at our consult. You can also email me questions at: [email protected].
Step two: Bring lots of fun ideas to your consultation appointment. We can 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 with any props, inspirational images or vision boards, and/or 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 to the photo shoot and have fun! We will work together 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: Sit back and relax! 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!
