Meet The Guides

Meet Melanie

I have always loved photography and have been taking pictures since I was a child. My education covers all different aspects of the art, including studio imaging, darkroom processing, and more traditional methods (now referred to as alternative) – although most work is done digitally.

I like my work to convey a story, to relate to the viewer, to bring to mind many memories in one single image. I love people and in my quest to capture their precious memories I also try to produce quality work that, at the same time, shows the unique personalities of my clients.  

I have always loved St. Augustine and the history surrounding the city.  Working with ShutterGuide Tours has given me the opportunity to meet new people as well as teach others photography tools and tips that they can use to capture their own precious, fleeting moments.  I look forward to meeting those of you who are visiting our beloved city for the first time (or perhaps, the second or third time...) and taking you on a tour of the Nation's Oldest City that will inspire you.

Tours scheduled with Melanie- Downtown Tours: Sundays 3-5pm

Meet Joseph

A Florida Native, Joseph currently resides with his wife Christina in the romantically historic city of St. Augustine, Florida. He first fell in love with photography while studying at Elon University. With an acute attention to detail and lifestyle approach to capturing those special moments Josephs work provokes emotions and reveals his passion for true storytelling. When he's not behind the camera he enjoys time with his wife, a day at the beach or a good movie.

Tours Scheduled with Joseph- Off the Beaten Path Tours: Saturdays 9-11am
