The best photographers from sea to shining sea!

Melissa and Leigh (the owners of Cherry Bloom Photography) were everything we could have hoped for and more. From our engagement shoot to our wedding day, they captured such beautiful and precious moments of Alec and I, our families and friends. It was as if they knew us before they knew us. We spoke on the phone several times so they could get a feel of what we were looking for and they also gave us awesome suggestions and ideas.

It brings such a big smile to my face and heart just thinking of the experience they gave us. Because of them, we will now be able to relive our wedding day for a lifetime!

Great artistry, professional and fun photographers!

Melissa and Leigh took both our engagement photos as well as our wedding pictures. We were married in Raleigh and both Melissa and Leigh were incredibly patient with the southern summer heat, and they made sure my husband and I had the chance to rest between events.

I appreciated that they were able to make my family laugh and also keep a pack of bridesmaids up with the schedule!

Along with all of this Melissa and Leigh are true artists and took such beautiful photos of the day, even following the vintage theme that Luke and I were hoping for. We loved the dreamy color photos plus rich black & white photos with classic poses!

We highly recommend them to anyone!

Our wedding

Melissa and Leigh were fantastic from the first meeting with them all the way to us getting our wedding pictures back. They worked well with us when getting our engagement photos done and understood it is awkward being the focus on the camera. They made sure to capture natural shots so not all of them were posed for they just happened to capture the moment. Same goes for the wedding day. They ensured I, the bride, was under no stress and they kept me on the time schedule I wanted to keep. They captured beautiful pictures at times my groom and I had no idea they were around! They allowed us to enjoy our big day and would pop in and update us appropriately. If I could do my wedding over I would choose them again to capture our wedding day!
