Hello there, beautiful! My name is Melinda and I am so happy that you are here. I’m a heart-driven Fine Art Photographer and Artist. I specialize in documenting high school seniors, lifestyle photography and intimate weddings.

My business is based out of south central Ohio in a small town with a big name called Washington Court House. I was born and raised in this sweet little town and I am so happy to be serving my community and our surrounding areas. This small town is perfect for raising our two daughters and allows us to remain close to our families whom we love so much!

I believe in creating honest images where you can simply be yourself. Each session is uniquely customized to you. I highly suggest incorporating places and meaningful items that are significant to you and your family. Sessions become an event to look forward to and an experience that you look back on favorably. My favorite images tend to be those “in between” moments (especially on a wedding day) when you forget that I’m even there. Being able to capture that vulnerability is such a gift and often times those images tend to be some of everyone’s favorites from their captured memories.

“It had been almost twelve years since having family pictures taken so when my wife told me we were signed up to have them done, I was not very excited. However, Melinda made the entire family feel comfortable through the entire process and it was actually very fun. The results were amazing and we have wonderful family pictures proudly displayed throughout our home. I would highly recommend Melinda Underwood Photography to everyone!”

“Melinda was phenomenal to work with for our engagement photos! She arrived early, stayed late, and truly gave us all her energy and focus during our session. Not to mention she was extremely kind and has a great personality, helping to make our session flow smoothly and making both my fiancée and I feel perfectly comfortable. Melinda also was able to balance our desires for pictures with her own artistic flair. We were very happy to work with her! We strongly recommend Melinda Underwood Photography!”

“f you are looking for a photographer, you have found her. She is absolutely amazing in every way possible. She photographed our wedding and I am beyond impressed. Totally worth it. Very nice, professional, organized, and punctual. She definitely knows what she’s doing and is the best in the business. We changed our timeline last minute and Melinda was so nice about it and worked with it so well. We will definitely book with Melinda again! I would give her a 30 star review if I could.”

“Melinda was the best photographer we could have ever asked for to take my daughter’ s senior portraits. I loved that Melinda asked to meet with us before scheduling a session date and showed us all of her different collections and prices upfront. It was also an exciting opportunity for Marissa to be a Melinda Underwood Photography Senior Representative! My family looks forward to using Melinda Underwood Photography to capture more exciting memories!!!”
