Perfect in every way!
If you're looking for the perfect photographer look no further! From the first time I contacted Kris to see if she was available for our wedding she has been absolutely wonderful! She took the best engagement and wedding photos I've ever seen! She made sure we got every picture we could think of that we wanted. She helped my 10 year old niece get her nails on and because my niece wasn't in the wedding party she had her help hold the lighting to make her feel as important as everyone else. I had wedding day jitters and she was helping me calm down, she made sure I ate and stayed hydrated. She even made sure I had my something blue and offered a blue ring, as my something blue was hidden. We had mishaps with the food, Kris went right to the kitchen and helped my sisters get the food made and served to our guest. She had us sneak away for sunset pictures and they turned out absolutely beautiful. She made sure we got pictures with nearly every single one of our guest. She surpassed our expectations of what a photographer does and I'm so grateful she was available to be there and capture our most important day.Sent on 10/16/2020

Miss kris is amazing!! I originally booked with her before covid 19 started and since had to change my date about 10 times and my venue about 5. Miss kris was so wonderful through the whole process. She went out of her way to make sure she was there to photograph my wedding. Even in the middle of a meltdown about to give up she was there telling me to breath, it would all be ok and my day would be beautiful. She was right 🥰. My photos were beautiful and my experience with her was nothing less then perfect. She was so patient and kind with my whole bridal party including 6 crabby kids that did not want to cooperate lol. She had a smile on her face the entire time, made the experience fun and captured the romance at the same time. Miss kris exceeded my expectations and even buttoned my entire dress when no one else could. (Mind you my dress had buttons from top to bottom down the back). She sent me sneak peak photos before i went to sleep that night and i had all of my photos within 3 weeks!! I hope every bride has the experience i had with miss kris. She is a genuine sweetheart and really shows her passion for photography in all of her work.Sent on 09/14/2020

We booked her last minute for our wedding in Costa Rica and she was amazing. She captured my whole entire trip and documented all of the memorable places we went. She is very outgoing and nice that she fit in with all 24 us down there. She was apart of the family by the end of the trip. I can’t wait to use her again in the near future!Sent on 10/04/2019

Above & beyond experience with kris
I got married October 6th 2019, Kris is an amazing, kind & outstanding person and photographer. Her personality shines so bright, she’s the most down to earth person I’ve ever worked with. She captured some of the most breath taking memories at our wedding. She goes above and beyond. I would give her 100 stars if I could.Sent on 12/27/2019

Kris is Fantastic
I met Kris at a bridal expo about two and a half years before my wedding. Right away we just clicked and I knew I wanted her to be my photographer. She is relatable and so easy to work with. She has great ideas and is willing to do whatever she can to make her clients happy. She made my wedding day so spectacular. She is more than just your photographer, she even helped sew my dress when part of it broke! She literally thinks of everything and her experience really shows. She made me and my husband feel so comfortable and at ease. I will definitely be using her again and again.Sent on 12/28/2019

Absoultly amazing photographer!
Miss Kris is amazing to work with. She is friendly and easy to get along with. She went above and beyond for our pictures for our reception. We got so many awesome shots to remember our special day. She got the shots that I wouldn't have ever thought to ask for. She isn't afraid to do anything for a shot including lying down on the ground just to get that picture. I would recommended her to anyone looking for a photographer.Sent on 10/30/2018

AMAZING. Wonderful photographer and great person.
Our original photographer (who was not this one) "lost" pictures from our wedding back in October 2018. After finally deciding what we wanted to do, we chose to "re-do" our wedding photos. A HUGE and appreciative THANK YOU to Photos by Miss Kris, Kris Mellinger. She was so kind to offer it for no charge on my disheartening post/review of our original wedding photographer who lost our photos from our wedding. So I messaged Kris about our photo situation and without any hesitation, she said YES. And our "new and improved" pictures look AMAZING (seriously, look at them!). Of course we paid her though, it takes a lot of time and effort to take the pictures, edit, and upload, etc. Plus, she was doing us a HUGE favor by taking the time out of her Sunday, amongst all of her other various projects, to take our pictures so that we would actually have family and husband and wife photos. She even went as far as driving to David's parents' HOUSE 20 mins away to take pictures in front of his truck and in a canoe (long story short, we couldn't get the canoe to the lake). But she drove 20 mins after already taking a bunch of pictures for us.
Now my husband and I actually have decent photos together in our wedding attire. We ACTUALLY have photos with us and our immediate families. It may not be the same as the original wedding day. But all of the love was still there. Kris "re-doing" our wedding photos meant a lot to us, and she did more than a fantastic job!!! I can't stop looking at them and really wish we had found her for our wedding instead of the horrible photographer who screwed us and lost our pictures. Thank you Kris!!!!!! :)Sent on 09/20/2019

5 STARS!!!! I'm not sure where to even start.... Miss Kris is the most Amazing photographer I ever had.(I use many, as we are a picture family)
Not only did Kris take the most amazing pictures , but she was amazing in every way! Kris was at my rehersal taking pictures and ended up putting her camera down to help eveyone with everything! she decorated, offered up ideas, she was amazing with all the little kids running around, she was so knowledgeable and came up with so many ideas that were amazing! wedding morning she was right by my side....All Morning! She even left at one point to make sure I had music for my ceremony that we thought we had....hours before start of ceremony! If it wasnt for Kris, who knew exactly what the problem was... we would have walked down the aisle to piano music! Kris helped my dreams come true in so many ways!!! Miss Kris wears many hats....photographer is just one of them! Kris kept me calm when I wanted to break down and cry many times!!! Kris is such a people person, eveyone loved her....my guest couldn't get over the amount of pictures she took and how she gets in there and captures every single meaning moment!!
I know for a fact I made the best choice ever in hiring Miss Kris for My Wedding Day! We will be using Miss Kris again and again!! Miss Kris has excellent prices and so many options when it comes to picture selection....I promise you will want every picture she takes! Yes, They Are That Good!! I am so happy I had the pleasure of meeting Kris, as I didnt know her before hiring her for my wedding pictures!
I cannot say enough about Miss Kris and her work! Such an Amazing Person All Around!! I would and will recommend Kris to anyone and everyone!
Thank You again for Everything You Do!!Sent on 09/28/2018

Kris is AMAZING!!! :)
From the moment I booked my engagement/wedding package, Kris was wonderful! She made me feel very comfortable and we had a blast during both our engagement and wedding photo sessions.
Kris was extremely eager to make sure she knew what I wanted and that I got the exact backgrounds I wanted for photo shoots, even offering to go hiking with me to find perfect spots days prior to the engagement shoot.
The day of the wedding she arrived early and went far above and beyond what a photographer is expected to do! She has a heart of gold and volunteered to help me, and anyone else, as much as she could. I didn't have a bridal party, so she even helped my mother assist me in getting ready.
After all the wedding photos were taken, she put everything onto a thumbdrive for me before she left at the end of the night. It was wonderful and exciting to have those photos the same day.
You will not be disappointed if you book Kris! I am beyond satisfied and highly recommend her to everyone for weddings or anything you might need a photographer for! I couldn't have picked a better photographer (or a nicer person!) and will definitely be booking her in the future when needed. Kris is AMAZING! :)Sent on 11/02/2018

Kris was an absolute delight to work with! She was fun and engaging to get my grumpy nieces and nephews smiling and she was flexible in taking the photos I wanted in the time frame I needed.

Kris will go above and beyond to get the absolute best photos for your special occasion. We hired Kris for our wedding day and were simply blown away by her extraordinary efforts, diligence, knowledge, detail, and professionalism. Kris is talented, patient and beyond helpful especially when it comes to bridal parties, ceremonies and receptions. We called her our “wedding mama bear” because she takes care of you and never stops working to help make your photography experience anything but perfect! She also helped with pinning bouts on our groomsmen, cake cutting advice and even stayed after the reception to get a gorgeous shot of the meteor showers with us! She is the best photographer for all those personal, heartfelt touches!Sent on 08/15/2018

Kris is AMAZING! She came with us to our wedding in Jamaica, and was the best wedding decision we made! She was so easy to work with, and had brilliant, fresh ideas.
