About Melissa Desjardins Photography

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.

    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.

    Although not for our wedding, Melissa took our family pictures in September and the whole experience was absolutely fabulous! I have known Melissa for many years (although we don't live close to each other) and have always been in awe of her photos. She always seems to capture the people and emotions in her pictures so beautifully so when I had the opportunity to have Melissa take our family photos I jumped at the chance! The whole experience, from planning the location, outfits and overall vision to the actual day and then post photo shoot was so fun, effortless and rewarding, that our family could not be happier! And of course, the most important part - the pictures - came out exceptional. Melissa captured our family so beautifully, I look at the pictures daily because they make me so happy. Melissa was helpful, professional, fun, patient, and just overall the best photographer I have had the pleasure of working with. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone! Thank you Melissa!!
