Yo is my maiden name and it is easier for people to pronounce instead of my first name 😂
I am the owner and the lead photographer at Grapefruit Photo.
Photography has always been my passion. My background is in integrated media so I have always been a visual storyteller and I will love to be your photographer for this special moment of your life! My favorite part of the wedding is when the couple exchanges their vows. It gets me EVERY SINGLE TIME!
WE LOVE OUR COUPLES (Check out our reviews below) and we will make sure you have the best wedding day experience (and best photos ❤️)
An interesting fact about me is I was a swimmer for eighteen years. Although I don't swim anymore regularly I still enjoy water time in the summer with our kiddos. When I am not doing photo shoots, I enjoy traveling, cooking, and spending time with my family.
Hi! I’m Claudia, and I am a Wedding Videographer based in Atlanta, Georgia. I honestly cannot remember a time that I was without a camera (no really, I still have my High School Musical Camcorder from 3rd grade). My family has always made it a priority to capture everyday moments of our life as a keepsake. We still sit around the TV and watch old home videos and look through albums and scrapbooks!
It was through this that I discovered my passion for storytelling and preserving memories. I know that as time passes, memories will fade. Your wedding film truly captures so many beautiful moments that will last well beyond our years!
When I'm not behind the camera, you can find me hiking with my black Labrador pup, Georgia, watching any trashy reality TV show, or catching up with friends at a local restaurant!
MELANIE - LEAD PHOTOGRAPHER
Hello! I am Melanie and I am a lead photographer at Grapefruit Photo. I just recently moved to Connecticut with my husband but I regularly come back to Atlanta. I am an upbeat, creative and curious person and that drives my photography style.
My background is photojournalism so I love documenting all the details of a wedding!
An interesting fact about me is I just graduated in the summer of 2022!
Though, my favorite part is the first dance. I love getting to see the real and intimate moments of the wedding and capturing that with my camera. And I would feel honored to capture yours!
When I am not shooting weddings, my favorite thing to do is travel! My husband and I not only enjoy going abroad but also discovering hidden gems locally. Whether it's a new cafe in the city or a small town with southern charm, we're enjoying every minute of it!
KELSEY - ASSOCIATE PHOTOGRAPHER
I'm a portrait + wedding photographer traveling the world, documenting stories for people like YOU. I'm an Atlanta native planting roots near + far, chasing whimsical pockets of light that exist in the breaths between.
I love what I do. I love getting to serve, love on, and create with the most amazing new friends who value deep connection, art, and experiences over perfection.
Your visual story should be documented in a way that reflects and represents who you are honestly, emotionally, + intentionally. I understand the gravity of being the one you've chosen to help do that, and it's an honor to be invited into these sacred moments.
My greatest inspiration is derived from my personal life, traveling, + cinema; and I approach every session and wedding in a more photojournalistic, lived-in, candid way.
Fueled by a love of noodles, good music, + old bookstores, and rooted in community, I find myself perpetually dreaming of Autumn, period dramas, + Scotland. You can usually find me with a good book + a cup of coffee, or spending quality time with my family.
My name is Heather and I am a destination wedding+elopment photographer!
I am also a dog & cat mom, house plant lover, and obsessed with youtube videos of little kids dancing exceptionally well.
My passion for photography lies in my passion for people. Getting to know people is one of the best parts of life, and capturing the most important day of people’s lives is second best.
I see so much joy and I get to celebrate it and experience it every day.
Like, what. How is this real life?!
Hi there! I am Meg! I have had the honor of working with Grapefruit Photo for the past year! I recently moved to Greenville, SC but love traveling back to Atlanta to meet up with friends and continue doing more of what I love.
I have been creating ever since I can remember - from taking photos on my parent's disposable cameras to filming music videos with my best friends. This passion has since evolved into meeting the sweetest couples and photographing their love stories. First looks are always my favorite, but I also get way too excited over some fun dance floor photos.
When I am not working, I am likely taking my German Shepherd pup on all the outdoor adventures, or spending quality time with some of my favorite people. I can't wait to meet you and help brining your wedding day vision to life!
“Yo and Melanie are the best! Yo was flexible when I changed the location for our engagement session last minute, and she was always quick to respond when I reached out with questions. o made us feel so comfortable during photos and they couldn’t have turned out better! could not be any happier with Grapefruit Photo and hope to work with them again in the future for other professional photography needs!”
