Pick melanie anne, she's amazing!
Melanie is a godsend. She's incredibly sweet and accommodating. I took a leap of faith when my coworker decided to offer me a photographer's contact info and promised me I wouldn't be disappointed. Melanie was my engagement photographer and is my wedding photographer. The engagement photos were perfect - all my insecurities about my body went out the window after seeing these jaw dropping photos. I cannot wait to see Melanie again and get in front of the camera on my wedding day. Still gushing over the love conveyed in this woman's work behind the camera!!!Sent on 05/17/2019

Fabulous last minute booking
I needed someone last minute to take some photos of my mother’s dog before he was put to sleep. Melanie’s second shooter was able to come out the very next day and created the most beautiful photos for us. The dog needed to be euthanized just 4 days later so she is truly a blessing to us. Quality is beyond expectations, we can wait to print and frame these! She and her crew were so kind & caring. She responded to most messages within a few minutes, she & her team exceeded expectations every step of the way.Sent on 06/10/2019

Spontaneous, Natural, Fun
My husband and I are so grateful to have met Melanie at the hotel in Portland on the weekend of our elopement. We had planned to take a few pictures and videos through our iPhones but in reality I was disappointed we wouldn’t get our moment captured better. The front desk woman gave us Melanie’s number and I called her right away. She was so enthusiastic to be able to get another session in her time there that she just offered her time and work FOR FREE. She was super flexible in getting us during her portrait session there. She made our elopement so memorable and made us enjoy this new highlight in our lives even more though the session. I am not photogenic and usually don’t know how to act in front of a camera but she made it very easy to do so because I was just interacting with my husband how I usually do and she was just there to catch those candids. Never during the session which included two locations by the way, did I feel like I needed to pose and directly look at the camera which made me so much at ease. I had never felt that comfortable with any other photographer. Even though we weren’t customers who paid, we definitely feel like we did because she edited our photos as professional as her other ones published on her Instagram and website. These are photos that will go with us during our lifetime together and are soon to be made into wedding announcements for our loved ones that they will have too. We really appreciate Melanie for helping us do that. We for sure will be hiring her for our future church wedding in California but we do thank her for her talent and time in taking such beautiful flicks that represent us as a couple and our intimate court wedding.Sent on 05/16/2019

This review is long overdue, but I had to leave a review for Melanie as she was really great!. She did our engagement pictures and they turned out great. The location suggestions she had were great and we ended up taking the pictures at Bill Baggs Cape Florida. The pictures turned out incredible. We will be using Melanie for our wedding as well.Sent on 12/01/2015

We had a great time with Melanie and her assistant Steve!Sent on 02/27/2015
It was our first time in a photo shoot and she was very kind with us, making us laugh and even making funny noises! She took her time to know our story and made possible our crazy photo ideas.
We would definitely hire Melanie again and would recommend her services to anyone.

Melanie was the artist who took my daughters engagement pictures. We were so happy with her images that we engaged her for the bridal shower and rehearsal dinner. The bridal shower pictures were wonderful. She took amazing candid shots that made my daughter so happy and really captured the event.Sent on 08/13/2014
Melanie is a professional talented artist and I would recommend her without any hesitation.

I have used Black Polaroid Photography for my engagement photo shoot, bridal shower, and rehearsal dinner. I have also recommended them to another friend who also used them and loved their work! Melanie and her team are very professional, creative, timely, attentive, and talented. I quickly felt comfortable working with her and knowing that she understood what we wanted. For each of our events she did an amazing job, it is rare to find a photo that I do not love. She is able to provide enough guidance so that the photos look great/natural and you're still having a great time in the process. She is also great at capturing candid moments at the events. It's wonderful to have those types of photos and remember what a great time everyone was having. I would highly recommend using them for any photography needs and will be using them again in the future!! Thank you again Melanie for making our photos so perfect! :)Sent on 10/22/2014

The BEST decision we could have made. We could not imagine anyone else capturing TWO very important life moments!! Our engagement pictures convinced us this was the photographer for OUR Key West Wedding. Melanie was so easy to work with, we felt comfortable immediately which made each photo session so natural and pleasant. We can't thank you enough for capturing these special moments!!Sent on 10/14/2014

Melanie was great. Upon our initial contact she was very punctual and professional. She worked with us as the date of the photoshoot came closer to ask about our preferences and needs. She showed up early for the actual shoot and was great with our kids. I would definitely recommend her to any who ask.Sent on 09/10/2014

Melanie and her assistant were both a pleasure to work with. They were professional, prepared, and had many great shot ideas for our engagement photo session. The photos came out beautiful and we are very happy with their service, and plan to use them for our wedding in the fall. Don't hesitate to book this great team!Sent on 07/08/2014

Working with Melanie was great! She had great photo ideas and she helped us get comfortable in front of the camera. The only thing that I would change is to do a dry run for like 5-10 minutes to get use to taking pictures. Our photos look great but the first few shots we looked kind of awkward and as the session moved along we got more comfortable and the pictures started to look more natural.Sent on 01/29/2014

Black Polaroid Photography is hands down, the best decision I made during my proposal to my girlfriend. Not only did the pictures come out spectacular (not an easy task given my mean-mug...), but Melanie and Jay were the most professional, easy-going, dedicated, and passionate pair of photographers that I've ever met.Sent on 02/03/2014
They were so friendly, so courteous, so insightful, and they really have an eye for beauty and design.
They made my fiancee and I incredibly comfortable at all points of the day, and for me who planned the day out, Melanie was quick to return phone calls and e-mails and gave great advice and recommendations. I am not using any other photographer for our wedding and will call on Black Polaroid Photography for any major life event in the future.

Thank you so much Mel for your great work with our engagement pictures. My fiance and I loved the pics and your shots came out AMAZING! We get so many compliments from the photos. I am so picky with pics and was happy to love all of them. Hope to work with you for our wedding pics!!Sent on 02/05/2014

Awesome. I have previous experience in modeling and she is one of those photographers that will put you at ease and direct you through the entire shoot. Hard to believe the beach was packed and the weather was gloomy but she made it look like such a romantic and private day in our save the date shoot. She is extremely responsive, prepared and professional. She was quick as well which I requested due to mikes unwillingness to shoot... but you couldn't even tell in the pictures! Don't hesitate and book Melanie.Sent on 01/01/2014
