Words Can't Describe Mel's Talent
Truly, words cannot express how wonderful our photos are and how much we love Mel. I know my fiancé was a bit apprehensive about the entire idea of engagement photos, but now he’s smiling ear to ear! Mel made our engagement shoot easy, fun, and natural. She is focused on making sure you have the best possible experience for whatever occasion you are celebrating. Now, I can't wait to get these printed and on our wall! Mel, thank you so much! We hope to see you again in just about a year. :)Sent on 10/27/2019

Best Photographer in New England, hands down.
Hiring Melody for my wedding photography was pure fate - she commented on a thread I posted in a NH bride group asking for photographer recommendations. I was flooded with B-Grade, non-prof hobbyists offering services via their iPhones & was so frustrated with the waste of my time that I went to delete the post. Mel was the last person to comment before I did so & her website thumbnail intrigued me. The rest of the booking fell into place, she worked with our budget, took notes of our theme & overall hopes for the photos we wanted out of our wedding, we connected over our family’s (& her personal!) military experiences & our love of animals & nature. I followed every one of her social media posts leading up to my big day, so excited for my own beautiful photos & she did not disappoint last weekend.
She was engaging, fun & I could completely be myself around her as I got ready with my best girl friends (I felt like Mel was a close friend - hence me forcing her to participate in our prosecco toast!) and when it came time for our couple photos, she killed it. She captured one of the most tender, emotional moments I have had with my husband, she instructed us on how to pose without making us feel uncomfortable, she laughed with us & cried when my Grandpa & I cried. I honestly feel more as though she is a good friend than someone I hired to do a service for me at my wedding.
She captured the most beautiful light, trees, foliage & nature that our venue offered. She was patient in us trying to corral our large families, and she knew what friends to find to track us down.
Melody will absolutely be my go-to photographer for any other important life events & I will be telling ALL of my New England friends to book with her. I could not have asked for a more perfect day & Mel’s talent, professionalism, promptness, patience & communication skills were the icing on top of our invisible wedding cake (we had pie & donuts!).
BOOK MELODY. Do not penny pinch on something that will last you a lifetime, preserve memories & something you will always remember your special day with. She is absolutely worth every cent + more.Sent on 10/22/2019

A dream to work with!
Melody came recommended through Facebook from another bride-to-be and once we saw her website and amazing work, we knew we needed to hire her! She customized a package to fit exactly what we needed and was very helpful throughout all the planning. She is very down to earth and gave us a lot of direction the day of, which is exactly what we needed to get the best shots. Our "teaser" photos are so perfect, we are dying to see the rest and can't wait to work with her again!Sent on 10/18/2019
