Our experience with Melissa was sheer perfection. I can not speak more highly about her work or how she engaged with us. She is bubbly, witty, easy going and I just love her. Planning a US wedding from Australia should have been stressful but I was so relaxed with Melissa - and her organisation, time management and attention to detail was outstanding. We established an instant rapport with her which made taking photos easy and we had so much fun with her. I think she truly captured the essense of our wedding day, and it comes across in her photos she is all about love, family and friendship. As I bride I think at times you stress about things like bad weather etc and as fast as those thoughts came to my head Melissa released them and left me feeling like whatever happened on the day would have its own beauty and she would just roll with it. She is a true professional and jack of all trades.Sent on 10/23/2018
In the lead up to the wedding we did two mini sessions with her in the springtime and also a winter snow shoot. She delivered countless beautiful photos and I know we will continue to use her for years to come.
We have so much admiration for you Melissa and your beautiful outlook on life. So glad we got to share these experiences with you. xxx

Fun, detailed and does it all!
Melissa was fantastic. She listened to what we wanted and got to know us. The engagement pictures are beautiful! Day of she was able to capture the details, while managing a large family with many kids. She had everything. She helped to fix some lace falling off the flower girl's dress, bustled my dress and worked great with the other vendors. We were able to see a few sneak peak pictures and can't wait for the rest!

The perfect mix of professional, talented and fun
Melissa is equal parts wonderful photographer and wonderful human being. Aside from her obvious talent and beautiful photos, she is someone I genuinely enjoy being around -- and I think that's really important when working with a photographer, because it's typically not the most comfortable experience for most people! She is fun, funny and full of personality, but still takes her job seriously and clearly has a passion for what she does. I always have a fear of coming across awkward in photos and walk away wondering how they will turn out, but Melissa has a way of relaxing people, making them laugh, and bringing out the best in them -- with the end result being great photographs that capture life's most precious moments & memories, and tell a story.
Aside from our engagement photos last fall, she recently shot our wedding. The timeline leading up to the ceremony unfortunately ended up being a bit tight and hectic, and as a result there are some photos we didn't get that I wish we had, simply because of time constraints and the fact that we were rushing more than I would have liked (a perfect example that you can try to plan and schedule everything out, but the day will never unfold 100 percent according to plan!) But Melissa helped to keep me calm amidst the chaos, and still managed to get many lovely photos that really captured the heart and spirit of our wedding day. Aside from that, she helped with my dress and other getting ready things, rescued our wedding bands that were accidentally left behind in the room the guys were getting ready in, and drove me from the getting ready location to the venue after everyone else left and abandoned me (haha) because we were running behind schedule. Although we arrived to the venue later than planned which created some challenges, after helping to get me from the car to the bridal suite *mostly* unseen by our guests, she still was able to get some shots of the decor and whatnot around the venue prior to the ceremony, as I was relieved to find when we got our photos back (I had been worried about this!)
Overall Melissa is just wonderful and I highly recommend her. More than just a talented photographer that I hope will capture many more future milestones & memories for us in the years to come, I consider her a friend and can say with confidence that you will not regret booking Melissa, no matter what the occasion or life event is that you are looking to capture.
