Our Story

Founded in August of 2016, our company started out under the name By Faith Photography. The name was derived from the famous Bible verse "For we walk by faith, not by sight" 2 Corinthians 5:7. It was very important to our founder, Mela Michelle, to be intentional about her purpose and putting God first in life and in business. Realizing her passion and talents exceeded photography we became By Faith Services and then finally Faithful Servants LLC. We're a multipurpose community based group focused on uplifting, empowering, educating and uniting the local community.

What we do

Our company helps new and potential businesses get started and prepared with filing/paperwork assistance, branding and marketing services. We coordinate and host networking events and small business showcases to assist businesses in expanding their audience. We also have a photography studio located within the event and business center. Photography courses and Styled photoshoots are frequent in the studio. On the event side we allow the public to rent space in our 1,650 SQ ft center. The center splits into two separate rooms 825 SQ ft each.

Hi, I'm Mela Michelle.

I am a 4x published, lead photographer and owner of Faithful Servants LLC hailing from North Carolina. With a degree in Communication studies and many years in marketing/sales I'm more than a photographer actually, I'd like to think of myself as an artist, a creative, a visionary ... I offer much more than a simple photoshoot, I offer an experience. I love making sure my clients feel comfortable and are able to bring out their personality during our sessions. I believe that the eyes are the window to the soul and every picture has a story to tell. My job is to capture that story beautifully.

I'm passionate about photography, creativity and helping people. Previously trained and worked for one of the largest national photography companies, I've been doing photography for almost 6 years now. I love angles, lighting and playing with posing. Let's work together, have some fun and create artistic memories!

“I absolutely love working with Mela!!! My family and I use her for all of our photoshoots and I'm amazed everytime. I never have to wonder what to do, she always poses us so well and I just love how our pictures turn out. Feels like I should be in a magazine LOL. She's polite and sweet and I highly recommend her services.”
