I'm Melissa Kuhl
And I want to capture your memories.
I first realized my passion and talent for photography after a trip to Europe when I was 15. Armed with only a film point-and-shoot camera, I devoured the sights through my lens. While looking at the developed photos, I realized I was reliving every moment from the trip in a way my memory could not quite recall. I was being thrust back into each location, each scene, and I loved the rush I got from holding those memories in my hands. As they say, I was hooked.
Multiple cameras, countless photoshoots, and over a decade later, my relationship with photography has grown into a deep-seated love. I hope that you will consider me to capture your favorite memories and moments, just as photography has allowed me to capture my own. After all, a picture is worth 1,000 words, but a true memory is worth so much more.
Praise for 10,000 Words Photography
"Melissa is an amazing photographer. She has such a great eye for good shots, and she goes out of her way to find uniqueness in every photo. The time and care she takes in shooting and editing the photos is clear in the quality of her work."
"While having my senior pictures taken, it was quickly evident that Melissa has a natural artist's eye for lighting and color. She understands exactly how different light levels will work from camera to final portrait, and adjusts accordingly. She was prompt and conversational, making the session very comfortable and light-hearted."
"10,000 Words went above and beyond our expectations! Engagement photos, wedding photos, innovative shots, etc. Plus a second photographer on our wedding day and an album. We highly recommend 10,000 Words Photography!"
