Whatever you do, PICK MELISSA. Just do it. Don’t think about it, just do it. When choosing Melissa I had no clue about anything to do with weddings. I literally saw her instagram by doing my own research & set up an appointment strictly off of her Instagram. I met Melissa on a lunch break so it took me less than 30 minutes to decide that she was the one who would capture the best day of our lives. I didn’t know Melissa , I didn’t know anybody who knew Melissa I just instantly loved the person she was! It felt like I knew her lol. She tells you exactly what to do for your photos and even the poses you might think are kinda awkward turn out the best, because she knows what she’s doing! She brings things to life that would have never even crossed your mind. I have the BEST wedding album. I have pictures of literally everything that went on at my wedding and then some. And she was all by herself without a second photographer (which proves how amazing she really is!) Before my wedding I would have known the HUGE part a photographer plays in your big day. It’s bigger than anybody can imagine. You think “yeah I’ll get some nice pictures” but who comes up with the poses for those nice pictures? Who makes sure to tell the guys to keep their hands in pockets??? MELISSA! So thankful we had her for our big day! We love you!!!! And look forward to using her in future events, family photos, whatever else I can get a picture out of lol.

I knew from the moment I met Melissa she was going to make this process so easy. When you think back of your wedding day all you have are photos to remember your big day that’s why it’s important to pick an amazing photographer and we did just that. I’m so thankful she captured beautiful photos and made the process so smooth. I would totally recommend Nelissa to anyone looking for a photographer. Thank you from the bottom of my hearts
