Hooten Photography-8595.jpg



Hello! We are Melba and Scott. 

We are husband and wife Wedding Photographers based in South Florida and Miami natives. 

Photography found us while we were both in college (Melba majored in Clinical Psychology and Scott in Computer Science). 

The skills and experiences we both have acquired translates to having a balance between the artistic/technical aspect of Photography, while fostering and nurturing genuine relationships with our clients. We want to truly get to know them and tell their story. 

Since 2007, we have been blessed with photographing and meeting amazing couples. They tend to value photography and the legacy that it creates. We feel absolutely honored for the moments we are able to witness and capture. 

We invite you to come by and visit us!

Melba and Scott are AMAZING! I searched for photographers for a good 6 months, I talked to so many different people and I just couldn't click with them, they were trying to push their ideas and suggestions on me despite me stating that it wasn't what I wanted and were disregarding my husbands and my vision. When I spoke to Melba and Scott they were all about what WE wanted, they were interested to find out who we were as a couple so that they could bring that through in the photos and throughout the wedding day. On our wedding day, they were on time for everything, and were honestly my sanity. When everything was getting chaotic (much more than I thought it would), they were there to calm me down, they made me feel at ease not only with the way they treating and talking to me, but also with the way they were able to adapt to the changes and curve balls with ease. If something did not go to plan they were already on the next best step and helping guide everything pre-ceremony along. After the ceremony, when the formals were taking place and everyone was everywhere else but ready to take their picture, they again helped things flow as best they could, my feet swelled up in my heels making the whole process unbearable (thanks to the Miami heat), Melba was there for me in every which way, and went above and beyond what she was there for. During the reception, Melba and Scott were their to capture all the fun and time with friends and family that was so important to us. They also had a post wedding shoot with us that was AMAZING! it was so wonderful to be able to have a shoot 2 days after the wedding just my husband and I, the wedding day goes by so quickly and is on such a timeline that it was nice to have a solo shoot where everything was relaxed and all about us as a couple. They made us feel so at ease and were able to capture us being playful and really showcasing how much we love and care for each other, also MY HUSBAND LOOKS AMAZING IN ALL THE PICTURES! *swoons*

Hooten Photography was absolutely amazing! They photographed our engagement session and our wedding. They are very professional, sweet, caring, and go above and beyond to be there for the couples they work with. They make themselves available for meetings, phone calls, and make you feel comfortable and secure. My husband and I had the best experience, and thanks to the beautiful pictures they have captured we get to relive such a wonderful moment in our lives. They have become great friends. We highly recommend them. Best photographers ever!!!!!`

Melba and Scott were just wonderful. We loved all of our photos. We had a very casual wedding in wynwood and they worked with us to capture all the special moments of our party. They were flexible to what we wanted for our big day and made every shot look amazing!
