June 2018 - Hahn Garden Wedding - Molly & Daniel
We are so glad to have found Happy Finch Photography on Wedding Wire! Melinda was very easy to work with and didn't even flinch when we had to change our venue to another part of the state. She was attentive when it came to what our 'vision' was for both our engagement shoot and on our wedding day. A month before the wedding we walked the venue together and spoke about 'must have' shots. That was so huge once the wedding day arrived. On the wedding day, she arrived early and provided direction to keep the events flowing. I continue to receive compliments on our photos and we will cherish them for years to come!Sent on 11/10/2018

Review of Consultation:Sent on 05/29/2015
Melinda from Happy Finch Photography is absolutely wonderful! Since the beginning of our correspondence, she has been awesome. Any questions or concerns we've had, she's answered promptly and has given us all of the information that we need! We are traveling to my Aunt's (about 3 hours away from us) for our wedding, and when we decided to make a weekend trip out, Melinda was kind enough to meet us there! She gave us so many wonderful ideas while we walked around and she snapped pictures to form her game plan prior to the wedding. I've continued to correspond with her via email as I come up with photo ideas or questions and she's so genuinely excited and receptive about everything I say! We're so glad that we're working with Melinda and so excited to see what she comes up with for the wedding!
Review of the wedding coming soon!

Great Photos with Happy Finch
We were so happy to have Melinda as our wedding photographer. Starting with our initial phone call, she was responsive, energetic, and made my husband and I at ease leading up to our big day. She will provide (and use!) a detailed questionnaire to help plan every aspect of your event, which was truly helpful and kept us from thinking about or organizing our pictures or portraits at all throughout the wedding day. She was extremely prompt in getting our pictures back to us, and our whole family loves how well they came out. We highly recommend her!Sent on 11/05/2018
