Meet Melanie Meurer Hardy


Here is everything you want to know about Weddings By MI and Me.

My Husband and I have lived in the Carlsbad area most of our lives. We love living in such a great town! I also love that my profession allows me to utilize all the great surroundings that Southern California has to offer.

I started my photography career almost 10 years ago working with my father Andrew and mother Christine. Being able to work with my family is such a unique gift.
