Summer has arrived with my busiest season yet. I am grateful for the commissions of so many exciting and varied shoots in commercial, architectural and wedding photography.

A huge thank you to the readers of Westport Magazine who voted Melani Lust Photography "Best Wedding Photographer 2011" in the "Best of the Gold Coast" issue for the second year in a row. It is such an honor to be recognized by my clients and to have the continued opportunity to document the beginning of their family histories.

Have a look at one of my favorite wedding blogs, Style Me Pretty, which recently featured Erin & Steve's gorgeous Manhattan wedding, and please also have a look at a recent interview for a fun article in New York Newsday which discusses currents in engagement photography.

Who doesn't love cookies and desserts? Especially when they are baked with love and taste that is out of this world. Having been a long time fan of Sweet & Simple, I was thrilled when Michelle Jaffee called me to create her new campaign and excited that Westport Magazine featured an editorial piece with the photos in the July issue. It was a challenge not to eat the set! You can pick up her delicious treats at Fairway and local merchants.

It has been a great season for local architects and builders. Transforming their three dimensional masterpieces into photography for their portfolios and commercial usage has been a fascinating study in line and beauty.

Notable shoots recently include
Architectural Digest, athome Magazine, The

Wright Brothers, Ranney Michaels Architects, Executive Craftsmen, Wieting Design, Robert Berger Architects, ChemBulkTankers, Bella Interiors and The Higgins Group. I have thoroughly enjoyed creating candid and natural public relations portraits for the companies to use in advertisements and marketing materials.

If you need family portrait photo tips, have a look at "Take Incredible Family Photos," where I was asked to give advice to Moms on how they can capture some great family shots. We can't always be there and it is important to know how to use your camera to document those important milestones.

Thank you for the opportunities so far this year. We are currently booking commercial projects and weddings for 2012. We appreciate your support!
