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

Adventurous and talented!
Melody was the first wedding vendor we picked and it was an awesome decision! Although we have only had our engagement session so far, our wedding is next October and I can’t wait to see the picture she’ll capture! The engagement pictures she took for us far exceeded my expectations - they will definitely be plastered all over our save the dates, website, Instagram.. :) We went for a (pretty rigorous) hike at sunset where she took killer mountaintop pictures of my fiancé and me. I have always been slightly awkward in front of cameras but Melody makes you feel super comfortable and relaxed. She’s professional, flexible and very up for an adventure!Sent on 01/12/2021

Sept on the farm at the cove
Melody swooped in on our wedding day with a second shooter, multiple lenses, flexibility and enthusiasm in tow. Having worked with us in the weeks leading up to the wedding day, she had already laid out her agenda of times/locations/events/subjects/hours of sunlight for us, so we knew exactly what to expect and exactly where we wanted any additions or deviations. She was quickly made aware that the maid of honor was a wedding photographer (which isn't always helpful..) and immediately chatted with her to discuss any input, insight, or details about me, my husband or the venue that would add to capturing the day. Melody immediately welcomed being brought into our group and never made anything feel imposed or forced.
Having this wedding during a pandemic posed a lot of challenges and made the normal excitement and joy that goes into a wedding feel overwhelmingly difficult and not always easy to feel justified. Working with Melody, her constant positivity and affirmations throughout the day really added to our belief that we had made the right call to have a smaller, nearly suffocating-ly safe wedding rather maintained the organic and humanitarian feel that we live by daily. She was stealth in shooting us throughout the day, so warm and hysterical (!) in getting to my husband's and my real personalities in the midst of a chaotic and emotionally charged day, and an absolute delight to be around. The wedding party, my family, and my husband and I were just thrilled with Melody, period. The photographs Melody shared the day after (!) the wedding were absolutely stunning and we can't wait to see them all. Melody is a star and I simply can't say it enough: we recommend her with the highest and warmest review possible.
