Wicked Wednesday: Meet the Fresh Face of Wicked Haute!

Happy Wicked Wednesday to you!! We're tickled pink you're here :)

This Wicked Wednesday we're mixing it up. Usually, we are introducing you to some of our fabulous clients or gorgeous model reps, but today...we're introducing you to the fresh, new, extra spicy Wicked Haute Pinup & Boudoir Photography! We've been changing things up a bit, and now we finally get to share all of it with you!


Our team has grown! You'll recognize some familiar faces: lead photographer and owner, Melissa, and resident hair and makeup artist, Veronica. But you'll also see two new faces: Marketing Specialist & Communications Coordinator, Liz, and photographer, Jen.


Owner & Photographer

First inspired by the website of a boudoir photographer in England, and then asked by a friend to take shots for her fiancee, Melissa first found her passion for boudoir. This was in stark contrast to the baby & child photography she was focusing on at the time. But her choice to specialize in boudoir has been one she's loved ever since she opened her studio in 2012. Melissa loves encouraging women to find their beauty both inside and out through boudoir photography. Today, she has photographed hundreds of women and continues to successfully grow her business into everything she has envisioned since day one.


Marketing Specialist & Communications Coordinator

Liz has considered herself an art and writing nerd from a very young age. She has won awards across the Central Valley in both fields throughout the years. When working for a local skincare company in 2015, her tasks went from sales to head of marketing and advertising. Other local companies soon reached out for Liz's assistance with their marketing. These experiences helped Liz realize her natural inclination for marketing as it paired her love of art & writing. She looks forward to drawing in future clients with an honest approach by presenting the heart and soul of Wicked Haute.


Hair & Makeup Artist

Veronica always had a desire to pursue a career as a makeup artist. After graduating high school, she went straight into the workforce but never lost her love of hair and makeup. She began teaching herself techniques through YouTube and by practicing on her sisters and friends. During this time she purchased makeup and tools, and in 2011 she achieved her goal and began cosmetology school. In 2012, she joined the Wicked Haute team as the resident hair and makeup artist. Since this time she has thoroughly enjoyed bringing joy and confidence to every client with her talent.



Since she was a child, Jen has been interested in photography and began by setting up photo shoots with her barbie dolls. After she had her son, the first of three children, she would set small photos shoots with him as practice. She expanded and started photographing for family and friends in 2010, and registered her business in 2013. After booking a boudoir shoot with Melissa, Jen fell in love with Wicked Haute and officially joined the team in 2017. She loves how photography is always evolving, and wants to utilize this changing climate to show clients a sexy side of themselves they may never knew existed.


Same signature colors...New look! We wanted our logo to embody our simplistic style as well as our fun and creative side.

*Drumroll please!*


One of our big changes is putting a new face to our website.

We've worked on making it a bit more user friendly as we tried to address many of the questions we got on a regular basis. You will now find it more streamlined to locate shoot pricing, add yourself to our newsletter, look at previous blogs, and see our portfolio of clients and model reps.

With all these changes we have kept our focus on our minimalist and modern look, and updated the site with this look in mind. You will see pictures from recent shoots, bios of the team, our mission statement, and LOTS more!


Without our wonderful clients and future clients, we wouldn't be here. Our goal is encourage body positivity & self-confidence, and we love connecting with you all on a regular basis. Like a best friend, we're down to go wherever you are for whatever mood you're in.

Want to explore what we can do to boost your self-confidence and make you feel like the babe you are? Check out past shoots on our website. We photograph women of all sizes, shapes, backgrounds, ages, personalities, etc. We celebrate the beauty of women and encourage everyone in their uniqueness.

Feel like grooving to some funky fresh beats? We're on Spotify (Add by clicking on Spotify, or by searching the playlist name, "Boudoir Poppin") We're always updating our playlist to make it the best for before your shoot, during your shoot, or anywhere! (We totally listen and shamelessly dance while doing our makeup for example...)

Just want to relax in your yoga pants on the couch? Scroll through our Pinterest page! We feature pictures from our studio, shoots with clients and model reps, and pics featured from our Wicked Wednesday blogs.

Feeling like going out and partying with new friends or being the first to know about killer deals? Join our newsletter! By being a part of our newsletter, you're in the exclusive club to know first about upcoming events, specials, and more.
