Welcome to The Candid Lens.  Honest, Truthful, Natural Photography.  

At The Candid Lens, we focus on providing the most natural and truthful shots; Family, Seniors, Weddings, Animals, Sports, Aerial Images, Landscape.  

We concentrate on showing the real person(s).  Our photos are raw in form, which means we try to limit any post-processing work.  

Have ideas?  We would love to hear them!  We want YOU to be comfortable in front of the lens.  When taking photos it is a partnership between the photographer and you, the client.  

Call, email, text, smoke signal us anytime to schedule some fun and take your walk down memory lane.

Senior Photographer, Owner/Operator:  Melanie Hoff:

Melanie was born and raised in Billings, Montana.  She has had a love of photography since she was very young, finally making her love a career.  She took off to find the world, settling in Anchorage Alaska.  In 2019, her husband relocated his company to Austin Texas.  To say she has been blessed with travel and the areas she has lived is quite an understatement.  She is married with 2 wonderful boys, and a spoiled Belgian malinois.  

She looks forward to capturing your memories for years to come.
