Hello and welcome. I'm Milissa Sprecher. I am fortunate enough to call Sanibel and Captiva Islands my home. Through my experience as owner (with my husband) of a successful branding agency — and previously, as owner of a representation firm for commercial photographers and film directors — I've learned my craft from some incredible photographers whom I've had the privilege to call friends.
I love people. Most of all, I love emotions and moments. Each person has his or her own amazing personality; bringing that personality to life, with the camera as its witness, is the true artistry of a great photographer. Sometimes it's easy. Sometimes it's not. The special photograph that captures a special moment isn't a function of a thousand clicks, but simply one — technically perfect — at the right time and place.
It's this approach that I'll bring to your photography. The result is a remarkable collection of photographs, each telling its own unique story of you, your partner, your family, your special relationships and most of all, your personality.

Stylistically, I can often see the moment before it happens; probably just from being a mom of three amazing kids, you have to have ESP. I love the natural light here in Florida. I would go barefoot or wear flip flops every day. I'm a vegetarian and a begrudging jogger. I live near the beach and I never cease to marvel at its beauty. I wish on stars, yet say my prayers every day. I say yes way too often. I like to give back. I'm an open book, and a good listener. I love to read, laugh and have fun. I find solutions, because I rarely see a problem. I am a life long learner and get excited with each new "trick" I learn. I have high expectations and lofty goals. And above all, I thank God every day that I get to live in this awesome paradise He has created and live my life with my best friend (my husband John) and my three beautiful kids (McKenna, Jackson and Addison).
So that's my style, and I hope it's yours too. With my background in journalism and advertising, I strive to find the "story" in my photography. I see every detail and nuance that makes you, you. And, what will make your wedding day special and memorable. It's my desire to not simply capture the love you share with your partner, but to capture the true personalities that make up that love. If you want fun, expressive, emotive, passionate, sometimes crazy photos that celebrate the true you — you've found me!
