Unbelievable Photo Album!
I highly recommend Melissa for any wedding! I reached out to many photographers for quotes and instantly connected with Melissa. If you want a robot who copies and pastes information to your emails, go somewhere else. Melissa personally cares about each and every bride. She made me feel like we were family and I loved reading through her e-mails and seeing the excitement she had about my venue and shooting locations. My husband was not a big part of the planning, but he kept repeating how sweet Melissa was! Melissa is a no brainer if you need a wedding photographer. She has a true eye for photography and a fantastic personality!Sent on 05/27/2019

Our wedding would not have been the same without Melissa as our photographer! She captured every moment while remaining unobtrusive. She is a delight to work with because of her positive attitude and passion for weddings. When you work with her, she makes it feel like you're the most important project she's ever worked on. She was flexible throughout the day, quickly adjusting our list of preferred shots given time constraints, but still made sure to cover all the bases. She has an eye for lighting and backdrops that allow her to capture your wedding the way you dream it to be. When I asked to take a picture in a certain location that wouldn't have yielded good shots, she nicely asked if I would be willing to consider another spot for better lighting instead of wasting our time on a less-than-perfect setting. She was kind to all of my bridesmaids, groomsmen, and family members. She made efforts to learn important guests' names before the big day. She skillfully gave recommendations about tilting my chin, moving my arm, etc. to make the most natural looking but extremely beautiful photos. We had a very unconventional ceremony setup which would have been challenging for any photographer, but she quickly found the best angles and strategized every shot (to the extent of bringing her own ladder to catch our special arrangement). We look so great in these photos, but we never felt like we had to "pose" for these shots. She offered two-shooter coverage of the whole day and we really liked her partner Americo. I'm not planning to get married again, but if I did, Melissa would certainly be the one to shoot it! Maybe my baby shower?Sent on 10/15/2017

Great photographer. Love to work with her. She does excellent job and get done in time to help start the part of the reception that I take care of during the night.
