Mel Watson Photography

Portrait and photojournalism-style wedding photography, based in Nebraska and available for travel.


Mel O’Keeffe, a wife and mother, recognizes that beautiful wedding images reveal something so much deeper than external beauty: they reveal the mystery of God’s love. She views her business as ministry, cherishing the opportunity to learn her couples’ stories and to intercede for them throughout their engagements.

From Mel:

Deeply impacted by Pope St. John Paul II's Letter to Artists and my own personal devotion to the Holy Family, I'm on a mission to help restore the beauty of marriage and family life through photography. Beauty will save the world!

My business is my ministry, so it gives me great joy to invest in my clients' lives by learning their stories and journeying with them as they prepare to enter into marriage. I put my heart and soul into each wedding I photograph, and as each moment of the day unfolds, with the tears, laughter, and prayers, I'm most likely tearing up from behind the camera, too.
