Melissa Braden

Hello! My name is Melissa Braden and I am the photographer and owner of Candid Keepsakes Photography. I have been a professional photographer for 10+ years. It is my dream job and love every minute of it. I am a mom of two beautiful and almost grown up children and have a wonderful and supportive husband. I am a native of Colorado Colorado Springs. When I'm not take pictures, I live to hike and be in the mountains.
