Hello Gorgeous!!  Join me in my commitment to empowering women, embracing their inner temptress and creating beautiful products to celebrate each woman in her own skin! 

New England wedding photography at its best


If you're getting married in New England and looking for a wedding photographer that does more than the canned poses and cheesy images you have seen for decades, then you've come to the right place!  Boston based wedding and portrait photographer Christian Pleva will document your day in one of the most amazing and beautiful ways possible.

Our style of wedding photography is deeply rooted in wedding photojournalism, influenced by fine-art and fashion photography. The result is creative, clean and crisp wedding photography that’s romantic, fun, and emotional. We pride ourselves on not just being photographers, but rather artists creating unique and expressive imagery.

At our studio you are always working directly with Christian and Melissa. Why is that so important?  Unlike all your other vendors, your wedding photographer is the one person that will literately be with you the entire day.  We think its extremely important that the person you hire to document one of the biggest moments in your life, is actually the same person who's portfolio you are looking at, and the very same person who you shared all those creative ideas with before your wedding.

Make no mistake, talk to your friends who have been married and one thing is certain, most all wish they had put more emphasis on their wedding photographer. Why? Because when it's all said and done, the only thing left to remember of your day, will be your wedding photography.




Engagement pictures matter.


We love shooting engagement or pre-wedding sessions!  I know some of you may be saying to yourselves, "We don't really need engagement photos, we had a friend take shots for our save the dates already.  Do I need to do engagement photos with my photographer?".  Here is our answer... First, it allows you to learn how to work with your photographer and just as importantly, as the photographer, how to work with you.  What you like, what you don't like, etc.  Secondly, we edit with some diversity in this session to see what imagery you really gravitate towards.  Added bonus, it gives you a variety of imagery in your home! (and let's be honest, Facebook and Instagram too!)  You don't want every picture to be of you in your dress and tuxedo, or shot at the same time of year in the same location.  And's fun!!!!  In the hustle and bustle of life, work and wedding planning it's hard to sometimes focus on you as an engaged couple!  This is a day to spend laughing, kissing and just celebrating all of those reasons you are marrying that special someone!






We love traveling the world capture amazing moments


There is something special about traveling to a foreign land to get married, whether it's just a few close friends or hundreds.  Beautiful destinations captivate, and more importantly, can be captured in amazing imagery.  We have traveled around the world with our clients and love how the travel allows us intimate time to not just make pictures, but fully document their journey.  Want to take us with you?  It's easier than you think and if perhaps your going somewhere we've dreamed of going...  The term- "will work for travel"  comes to mind!  Wink...Wink!



Boudoir Boutique


Hi I'm Melissa!  I'm a wife, mother, business partner, photographer, friend, daughter, etc.... the roles and duties go on.  In the madness of day to day life I noticed the once wild, free spirited, sexy version of my myself in my youth was slowly showing up less and less.  Why is it that we are so tied down by our responsibilities and the pressure of daily life?

I found myself no longer caring about wearing makeup and trading in my once flirty, cute outfits for comfort and flats.  Not to say that comfort is a bad thing, but as I sat back and analyzed I noticed those cute outfits, makeup and dress up were things that also made me FEEL GOOD!  That is why I feel so passionate about the art of boudoir, and not just some crammed session where you show up, nervous and unsure and are out in 30 min, but I mean a complete experience.  Why not treat yourself to a day of beauty, laughing, dress up and feeling great about yourself and letting that suppressed sexy temptress come out again! I want to help every woman feel that same confidence that I found, once I let go and felt free with where I was in life and with my body!  We all have goals and say, "Once I lose 5 more pounds I'll be ready," but there is such freedom in letting go and feeling sexy and confident where you are!  Let's celebrate the women we are and reward ourselves with a day of beauty!
