Hello! Welcome to Essence Photography & Design.

I'm Melissa Luce. I am a full service branding and lifestyle photographer located in Regina Saskatchewan.

I have been learning and refining my photography skills since my oldest was a baby (and he's 20 years old now!)

Take a look around and check out my portfolio! If you have questions or are interesting in booking you can contact me by CONTACT page or emailing info@essence-photography.biz.

I specialize in lifestyle photography (family, maternity, grads, pets & milestones) and branding photography (headshots, branding, produce & corporate)

I love to travel and I'm always up for a new adventure so don't worry if your not in Saskatchewan!

I have been blessed to have traveled.....

  • Dubia 2019
  • Atlantic City 2017
  • Maryland 2017
  • Vancouver 2016
  • Nigeria 2015
  • Ottawa 2015
  • Las Vegas 2007



It wasn't until I had my first son in 2001 that I realized how important photographs were. I believe that capturing life stories and moments are so important, not only for you, but for your children. I love looking back that the memories and milestones.


As entrepreneurs, we all have a story and a branding session help connect you with your tribe! As an entrepreneur myself, I am super passionate about entrepreneurs getting in front of the camera to elevate their brand, connecting with their audience and grow their business.
