About Me

Hi friends!

I'M Melani Lust,

a full time professional photographer based out of Westport, Connecticut and Manhattan. I studied at N.Y.U.'s College of Arts & Science and Institute of Fine Arts, where I received my BA, then MA in Art History, with two specializations in ancient Roman sculpture and 17th century Dutch painting. My eye for composition and sculpting light was cultivated during my graduate studies at museums throughout the world, as well as in the darkroom, where I photographed objects for my theses and presentations.

I am obsessed with compositional geometry and candid moments, and the work presented here illustrates my greatest passions, all composed and captured with love and enthusiasm. I've been commissioned to photograph commercial projects and weddings around the world, and always take time for my personal art, showcased here and updated monthly.

I've had exhibitions of my photographs in museums and libraries in the USA and in Cuba and have received international awards for my candid street photographs in New York and India. You can see my editorial work each month in Greenwich Magazine and other regional magazines.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


Ancient ruins, wildlife, love, the Fibonacci Spiral and the ocean.


Having patience to wait for the right moment.

Career highlights

Voted "Best Wedding Photographer" of Connecticut's Gold Coast 11 years in a row; recipient of La Grande international photo award; curated photo exhibition in Havana, Cuba.
