About Melissa Durham Photography

A wedding day is full of surprises. It is full of profound moments that will forever leave a mark on your soul. It is full of in-between moments that fervently drift by. Silent glances that declare love louder than any spoken word. Kisses that linger and beg for time to stand still. Smiles and laughter that make your cheeks hurt. Tears of joy. Connection. I believe that photography is never just about a simple photograph. It is meant to tell a story. The story of your life. The story of your love. A photograph is life's pause button. I believe that a photograph lets you live that moment all over again. It lets you hear the music that played, the words that were spoken, the laughter exchanged. It evokes emotion. It reminds you of where it all began. It tells you to hold his hand or hold her closer. It brings you back and drives you forward. My work is driven by my passion for these very things. To help you tell your story. To help you relive the moments of your life that started it all.

    I can't not say enough how much I love Melissa. Not only was she super awesome to work with, I'm convinced that my wedding day wouldn't have gone as smoothly with out her. From the beginning Melissa put my nerves at ease, we communicate over email and phone since she is located in Virgina and I'm located Massachusetts. Not once did I second guess my decision to hire a photographer from out of state, she was constantly checking in with me and making sure we were on the same page. When the day finally came, it was borderline a hurricane outside. Melissa spent the day helping me carry my bags, bouquet, veil, and her camera equipment from location to location in the wind and rain. She really put my needs first, all while capturing my wedding day, she really is some kind of super woman. Now that I look back on the moments she captured I'm blown away. Her work is absolutely stunning, my husband even mentioned that he though she made us look like to models in a magazine. I'm dragging on here but really Melissa is a master in her craft and her personality and professionalism are miles above other vendors I've met and worked with.

    Melissa did an amazing job for our wedding and engagement shoot. When we started planning our wedding, we had budgeted a specific amount for each of our vendors, and when we were selecting our photographer, Melissa was a little more than what we were planning on spending on photography. I remember my wife talking me into it, and I am so glad she did. Of all our wedding vendors, Melissa provided the best value of all of them, and we had some great vendors. Melissa really stood out in so many ways. The first is that I have never really been comfortable around the camera. I just don’t like having my picture taken. Think Chandler from Friends. But it ended up being so easy with Melissa. Part of it is how warm and caring she is. She creates such a relaxed environment that you forget that she has a camera. She also really got to know us as a couple and what was important to us. The amount of detail she would remember from one conversation to the next was unreal. It really made working with her fun. She also took some amazing photographs, and the amount of emotion and details she was able to capture in her photos is pretty unreal. Her wedding pictures really captured the entire day. The day went by so fast, but with her wedding album, we can relive the day just by scrolling through them. It was such an amazing day, and I am so thankful that Melissa was able to capture it all. I can't recommend her enough!

    I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Melissa! She flawlessly photographed our engagement session and wedding. She not only captured each memory perfectly, she was also a joy to be around and get to know. Melissa constantly stayed in touch and checked up on me prior to the wedding. She wasn't afraid to jump in and help when I was stressed with the wedding timeline and took care of the details as if it were her own special day. Her calming presence and caring personality allowed me to fully enjoy each moment of our wedding. I can't wait to be in front of Melissa's camera again!
