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

The best of the best
If you look at her photos, it's no secret that Melody is clearly a talented photographer. Her photos speak for themselves - what I want to focus on it what makes her truly exceptional. From just the inquiry, I had a feeling Melody was the right photographer for us. She was the only photographer we inquired with who didn't send us a form response - her inquiry response was personalized, and she was excited for us (as someone who works in marketing, I'm a stickler for good communication and customer service). We had a couple months to plan for engagement pictures and she took care to get to know us and choose places of interest or significance. Additionally, we live in Florida, so trips home to New England are scarce, and she very kindly squeezed us in for an engagement session during a busy time of year AND turned the photos around within a week and a half. When COVID started to become a concern for our April 2020 wedding, Melody was the ONLY vendor to take the initiative to reach out to me of her own accord before things really blew up. She offered options, sound advice, and an understanding ear.
Melody creates beautiful photos and makes you comfortable enjoying whatever beautiful outdoor location you have chosen. I highly recommend her though for the compassion and care she shows her couples. It's clear she truly loves what she does, and she goes above and beyond to make her couples fall in love with the experience too. Looking forward to having Melody Pilling wedding photos one day!Sent on 07/14/2020

I do not have enough positive things to say about Melody!! From our first phone call, I felt like I had known her forever. Our husbands our in the same profession and there was an instant connection. She is so easy to talk to and very responsive via phone and email. Unfortunately, we did not have an engagement session. The first time we actually met was on the wedding day. Melody made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. My husband doesn’t exactly love photos and Melody found a way to have us both look so natural.Sent on 11/22/2019
Now let’s talk quality of photos!! Melody sent us a “sneak peak” of a few photos and it took me a minute to realize what I was looking at! The pictures are absolutely stunning. She has a serious talent.
I highly recommend Melody, especially for intimate weddings or adventure photography. The way she incorporates nature in her photography is gorgeous.
My husband and I are proud to have served this country, and believe if you are a veteran or are currently serving on active duty or police force you deserve a "Thank You" for your service. You will receive 10% off whichever wedding collection you choose!
Wonderful to work wiith. Worked well with the team
