What makes for great wedding photography?

The answer depends on who’s asking as much as to whom it’s being asked.

That’s where I come in. I’m Melissa Desjardins!

I don’t view photography through a traditional lens, and the same can be said for your wedding day vision. Society’s so-called conventions are, well, all-too-conventional for your individual style; but we both know it runs much deeper than that. You’ve never been one to settle for the status quo. Should the most important day of your life be any different?

Of course not!

You’ve put a ton of hard work into making “The Big Day” an expression of you and your partner’s unique styles. So when that day arrives, you deserve to enjoy the aesthetic you’ve created through artfully-crafted photography. Though beyond aesthetics, it means the world to me when couples trust I’ll capture the genuine moments of the most significant chapter of their love story with my special brand of energy and passion.

Welcome to Melissa Desjardins Photography!

    BOOK MELISSA! She’s incredible.

    Where do I begin?! Melissa was absolutely the best to work with and I absolutely recommend hiring her. Melissa’s “eye” is impeccable, and I love every photo she took. We had such a great time meeting Melissa for our engagement shoot and we immediately all became friends and were so comfortable working with her. She walked us through some poses that felt and looked so natural and also captured us just being ourselves. We unfortunately postponed our wedding (due to COVID) twice, and Melissa was always one of my first texts to make sure she would be available before we selected the new dates. Melissa took such gorgeous photos of our perfect day and even three months later I find myself looking at them everyday. THANK YOU MELISSA, you are truly the best!

    Absolute perfection

    Melissa is absolutely incredible. And she is one of the kindest people I have met. She came highly recommended and after looking through her photos I could see why. My husband and I didn't get a chance to meet Mel before the wedding (we live out of state) and as soon as we met her on our wedding day we both immediately felt comfortable and it was as if we had known her forever. She arrived early and extremely professional, was always easily found when we wanted to take extended family shots at the reception and was vocal about making sure everyone could be seen and was evenly distributed in the shots (we have a big family) and I really appreciated all of her direction! Her photos of the day are absolutely beautiful and I am so thrilled we went with her. My husband and I were talking after the wedding and were sad we never got to say goodbye after the sendoff, everything happens so quickly! But that's when you know you've got a great photographer, you miss them after only spending a couple hours together.
