About Melissa Koren Photography

to love. to laugh. to remember.

I take pictures of good people. 
Wonderful, loving, quirky, sassy, laughing, fantastic, often cheeky people like you!
You are good people! There are adventures to have and memories to keep so let's get to it! 

I believe in love & laughter, hoopla & levity.  Stolen glances, sweet kisses & snuggles.  Connections & kindred spirits.

Not only do I believe in them, I photograph them. I make lasting, tangible memories out of your moments. Love & engagement shoots lead to weddings. And newborns lead to families. I adore them all. Everyone is unique and we all love in our own ways. I have a special way of seeing that. Let me take a picture, and show you. I strive to make memories tangible and moments indelible. Be you sassy and quirky or bold and playful, I’ll find an intrinsic connection and illuminate the everyday.

Me: Koren is my middle name [core-in]
I have an obsession with graph paper or anything square for that matter
I think sometimes Pollyanna has a point
The older I get, the darker I require my chocolate to be.

There are some things you’re just born to do.
Turns out for me, one of those things is being a photographer.
As a kid I played piano, read voraciously and lis­te­ned to Mozart, Bette Mid­ler & Bar­bara Streisand.
I wan­ted to be Anne Sulli­van, Julie Andrews and Megan Follows when I grew up.
I spent hours pla­ying with gyros­co­pes, spi­ro­graphs & clim­bing the q*bert pyramid.
My 12th Christ­mas we got a 
Nintendo and I think I can safely say I’ve devo­ted 4 solid years of my life to Tetris.
In high
school, I was a hard core cho­rus & drama geek.
I went to UNH to major in music edu­ca­tion. Turns out, as much as I loved music, I didn’t want it as my profession.
I got a ‘real job’ (admin) and sett­led into being ‘an adult’ (yay bills).
When my son was born I star­ted taking a lot of pho­tos of him and quickly became an avid
I shot my first wed­ding in 2007 and I was imme­dia­tely smit­ten with it.
The next day (my 29th birth­day) I woke up and rea­li­zed I knew what I really wan­ted to be when I grew up!
I truly adore and love my job. Mee­ting new peo­ple, fin­ding a way to cap­ture their memo­ries, inte­rac­tions & emo­tion, it all makes for a very satisf­ying days work. I don’t think that hiring a pho­to­grapher always requi­res a for­mal occa­sion, it might just be you’d like to be in the pic­tu­res with the rest of your family for once! Big or small, I love it all! (this dose of cheesy was ode to Dr. Seuss)

I still love Mozart (and Bette Midler)
I’ll cha­llenge anyone to some old school Tetris
I’m addic­ted to Scrabble
I’m a mother & wife.

Melissa went above and beyond as our wedding photographer. She made us feel 100% comfortable and taken care of. From bustling my dress, helping to get a stain off a dress to completing a long list of group photos in efficient time. We were so thrilled to work with Melissa and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for an photographer who is also a jack of all trades, truly amazing.

Melissa could easily be dubbed the MVP of our wedding. When I first reached out to Melissa I knew it would be a great fit. She and I exchanged countless emails on what the day would look like and the package that would work best for us. Even days leading up to the wedding as I was panicking that I didn’t reserve enough time with her, she was so supportive and reassured me that everything would be wonderful- exactly what I needed to hear. On the day of, she was wonder woman. She knew exactly when to step in with her bobby pins to secure my veil, bustle my dress, secure my groom’s bout, tell guests where to put their arms when taking a photo with me so as not to pull out my veil, or usher us away like a bodyguard so as to not let all of our guests see us before ‘I do’. These things alone were spectacular and invaluable; add the amazing photos and we couldn’t have been happier to have Melissa with us. Your wedding day goes by so fast, let me tell you, it is PRICELESS to be able to go through each photo and relive the day. Melissa has a wonderful way of capturing each important moment and carefully planned detail of your wedding. My husband and I can’t thank Melissa enough and highly encourage you to book her for your big day!
