James and Melodye, together. Then and now.

Our Vision

Our aisling (ash-ling) or vision is simple. We capture memories whether thru still or moving pictures, code or words.

Our Story

Plant & Main is made up of Melodye and James Flanagan, an award-winning Florida native couple dedicated to the art of photography and writing. The name Plant & Main is a nod to Melodye’s late father whose pharmacy was located at the corner of Plant and Main Streets in Historic Downtown Winter Garden, Florida for more than five decades.

Meet the Team

We specialize in photography, communications, public relations, marketing and web initiative consulting. Melodye and James are both writers and editors with James having recently branched out into novels.
