Our consultations aren't the typical sit downs at coffee shops. We don't just chat about the details of your wedding because we like to dive deep into who you are as a couple, or what was the defining moment that made you feel he or she was it, or more importantly if you're dog or cat people...ya know? lol! And of course, we share our story, our embarassing dating moments and which Netflix shows have our fancy!
Guys, you should know that you are in good company with us and that your special day is in good hands!
Our hearts beat for marriage so much that the core values of DAVIDANN are built upon the heart, your heart.. and what's important to you is important to us!
From the moment you hit "submit", we're digging your story and getting excited to meet you! So... give us the pleasure of being your wedding expert bff's and... let's do this!

Some of your work and links show Mela-Photo, I’m confused?
Mergers are hard yo! While some of our social media accounts like Facebook and blog links might take you to MELA Photo which is the old brand; we are going to be transferring as much to our new brand, DavidAnn. You can always shoot us an email if you have any questions.
What about Mela-Photo?
We kept the site, Mela-Photo up and running to help anyone of you that hired us before our rebrand. We plan to dissolve/disconnect Mela-Photo at the end of the year. So if you are looking for your past photos or blog posts, please visit- Mela’s Journal. We hope to transfer as much of our work on our new site, so there will be some overlap of work.
David & Ann are our middle names; but we go by our first names, Noah & Kim.
The idea behind “DavidAnn” was conceived one summer on our many date walks/hikes.
We love Jesus, a home-cooked meal, sustainable living & traveling.
We enjoy a solid documentary, a crackling fire and conversations centering around music, India, and clever memes.
We both have B.F.A. degrees in art & design. (Ps- our logo and website is all us!)
First there was Kim Jey Photography, then Mela-Photo & now DavidAnn.
