Melody is the most amazing photographer out there, and we searched high and low to find one. I am so grateful we found her. There is so much that goes into wedding planning and the most important thing to my husband and I was our photos. These will last a lifetime and will be shared with our future kids and grandkids someday. Melody is the real deal, she has passion for her work and does it so effortlessly, it is quite remarkable. She is adventurous and really goes above and beyond to get you what you want. We mentioned to her that we wanted to take photos outside somewhere maybe in a wooded area and what does she do, she gets a permit to get us up to the top of Blue Hills and capture some of our greatest moments. We were worried about how we’d get up there, who’d drive us up, a limo can’t get up there, what does she do? She drives us up there!!! (separately of course because we did a first look). She is super organized and patient, she really helped us map out our day of timeline as well, which was a huge relief as I was of course stressing out over it. Our album is perfect, she captured every single moment of our wedding day! I can’t wait to have another life event (babies!) so we can have her as our photographer again!Sent on 11/13/2018

We absolutely loved working with Melody. From the first email to the engagement session itself, she was very personable and detailed oriented. Melody had clearly researched our location of choice - calling ahead to make sure places were open and looking up previous photography within the location. On the day of, she was a joy to work with, very upbeat and made us feel comfortable to relax and be ourselves in our engagement session. The photographs she delivered were stunning and we could not have asked for better pictures to capture us at a meaningful location. I loved that Melody picked natural poses and captured photos that not only captured our love and playful personalities but made us look great! Additionally, she was really flexible- the weather reports kept on changing the days leading up to the session and she was able to change around time, shoot in the rain, and accommodate us on a holiday weekend.Sent on 05/30/2017

Melody was great. She was very responsive to my first request and prompt with everything. She sends you the details and questions so you don't need to worry about a thing before or at your event. She was accommodating to add in an engagement shoot and researched the venue ahead of time. She's very upbeat and willing to climb rocks or whatever to get the perfect photo. Her 2nd shooter, Lauren, was amazing too. Very good with getting kids to cooperate. They were a great team and seamless! They also traveled to my wedding, we couldn't have asked for a better team! Thank you, thank you!Sent on 11/05/2017
