Note: This review is prior to receiving the final photos so I'll update when they come in but wanted get a review up now of Melissa and of our experience working with her prior to and during our wedding.Sent on 12/20/2016
Melissa was recommended to me by a friend of mine on FB who was also friends with her. I think when we hired her she was just starting to get her business off the ground and we couldn't find a ton of history on her (reviews, etc.) but after meeting with her, my fiance and I felt totally comfortable "taking a chance" on her. I even spoke to a photographer prior to speaking with Melissa who was highly experienced - a professional sports photographer on the side in fact - but chose to go with Melissa instead. Besides her very reasonable rates, we just got a really good vibe from her. She is very down to earth and easy to talk to. As we got closer to the wedding, her attention to detail was outstanding. She asked to see the church and hall before hand to make sure she knew the lighting of the church, the layout, what the officiant allowed or didn't allow, etc. She then asked if we minded if she came to the wedding rehearsal at the church so she could really see how the ceremony was going to play out so she would be prepared about where and when to set up for certain shots. Because of the size of our wedding and the time frame, she even used a second shooter to make sure we got all the shots we needed. Her rate also included an engagement shoot and after several delays (none her fault - mostly weather related actually) she bent over backwards to get them done and did a fantastic job of them. She got us a sneak peak within days and the rest of the photo's within a couple of weeks.
Melissa has since built up a fantastic FB page with lots of examples of her work. Check them out - I think you will like what you see.
