About Us

Who is La Dolce Vita Studio?

We are Melanie & Bradford Watson, married since 2006 and working side by side as a photography team since 2007.  It has been an incredible joy to do what we love so much with our best friend by our side.  Our life as photographers has allowed us to travel to so many incredible places around the world and open our eyes to how unique yet similar each of us really are. After living in Florida for several years we recently decided to put down roots in the beautiful state of Tennessee where Bradford was born and raised.  We bought a home just outside of Nashville and couldn’t be happier to grow our family in this city we love so much.  Our son, Camden, was born in December of 2012 and our lives have never been more joyful and filled with love than it is now.  Through the ups and downs of our own life adventures we know how important it is to tell your story in a way that is honest and true to you.  It is our joy and pleasure to step into each client’s world for a time and capture the moments that are shaping your life.  We know these moments are brief but they are the things we keep forever impressed on our hearts and will shape us and influence our children.  It is our mission to love fully, laugh continuously, and care deeply for and with each life we have the privilege of being part of.  We are visual storytellers and we look forward to telling your story very soon.
