    WONDERFUL photographer with AMAZING work

    I'm beyond happy to have Melissa (& Jason) photograph our wedding. First of all, the preview pictures are absolutely beautiful, and I can't wait to get the full set soon. Beyond that, Melissa was a pleasure to work with, and helped keep me calm about making sure we got all the pictures we wanted! We ended up running later than anticipated, and rain threw off some of our initial picture plans, but Melissa was great at planning on the fly and dealing with what came up. She and Jason also made my husband and I feel very comfortable on the day, and took great care at making sure I liked the pictures and poses as we went. I cannot recommend Melissa any higher!

    There are so many wonderful things to be said about Melissa and Jason! We looked for a while for a photographer for our engagement shoot and wedding and as soon as we met Melissa and Jason at a bridal show we knew they were the perfect choice! I couldn’t have asked for more perfect pictures for our engagement pictures and also our wedding day! They are so easy to work with, very responsive, & make the whole planning process so simple! We have had so many compliments from family & friends from meeting the two of them and seeing our photos about how amazing they are! We highly recommend them and I will definitely be using them again for more photos!

    MMP was extremely professional and really were so easy to work with. Chris and Cyndi were so fun to work with for our engagement photos and the wedding day. Melissa made payments easy online and was super accommodating when all the wedding bills came at once. A wonderful experience and the pictures are amazing!

    I love Melissa. From the moment we met with her, I knew she was the photographer we would use for our wedding. We went with the most basic package that she offers. She is super timely with responding to emails, she's friendly, funny and easy to get along with. Melissa helped with a ton of ideas for our wedding and even recommended other vendors to us. Her prices are very reasonable and we are glad we chose her. Her husband, Jason, also assisted with our photography. The engagement shoot session was a ton of fun and it made us look forward to our wedding day. Our bridal party said that they enjoyed both Melissa & Jason and thought they were such fun people. I loved that she has shot many weddings at our venue because it made things go more smoothly. She does amazing work and is so creative with the camera. We have only received a few of our pictures from our wedding day but I know she will not disappoint us. One of the photos she shared on her Facebook page is breathtaking and we have received so many compliments on it. Thank you for giving us memories to hold on to for the rest of our lives!

    I was planning a Welcome Dinner at the AACA prior to my son’s wedding and needed a photographer to capture all the details I knew we would be too busy to notice. In addition to the expected photo candids of our guests, it was important to me that the photographer we used be able to also capture the uniqueness and magic of the venue. After speaking with a variety of photographers, I finally found Melissa McClain and pending her availability, I knew my search had ended. In our first conversation, Melissa provided me with the level of confidence I needed to contract with someone I had never met and whose work I was unfamiliar with. Over the course of the year leading up to the events, Melissa was always available to answer my questions and quickly responded to anything I needed. A few months prior to our event, I received an unexpected, and sweet package from Melissa as a thank you for my business. This gave me the impression that she did value our business and was vested in my event. I did not meet Jason and Melissa until the night of the event and yet, they immediately put us all at ease, got done to work and started creating our photo memories. Once our guests arrived, I hardly noticed Jason and Melissa in the venue – they were completely unobtrusive and in no way annoying. HOWEVER, when I did receive the link to my photo gallery, it was clear that they were EVERYWHERE! I had fabulous people photos, gorgeous photos of my food displays and a clear capture of the venue all this took place in. The entire gallery of photos proved to be what a great event we had and that my guests were enjoying it. The photos captured details which as the hostess, I never saw! I highly recommend using Melissa McClain. She was a pleasure to work with, gave me a great sense of confidence – even more important when dealing sight unseen with a long vendor – and delivered a high quality product. I am not sure what else I could have asked for.

    My mind is blown. I have never felt as beautiful as I feel when I look at the pictures provided by Melissa McClain photography.

    First off, it rained on my wedding day. I knew it was going to rain a few days before, and I received a message from Melissa, telling me she knew how to make pictures awesome during the rain, and it was going to be okay. Now, I'm a Type A, stressed out bride, so getting such a quick, awesome message early made me feel 10000000% better. And let me tell you, my pictures were GREAT. We got amazing rain shots, shots under umbrellas, not to mention beautiful portraits of my bridal party and my husband and I.

    The professionalism of this team is great, but they also make you feel like family. There were a lot of vendors we picked over the course of weeks, but we picked Melissa McClain photography within a few minutes of meeting the team, and never regretted the decision.

    I'm so happy.

    Our wedding was on September 24, 2016. The ceremony was at the historic Gettysburg Lincoln Train Station and reception at the Gettysburg Hotel. Melissa and Jason, our photographers, were absolutely amazing! The quality and beauty of the photos they've captured are outstanding. They provide amazing value for the cost of their services. Our contract included an engagement shoot, USB thumb drive of our pictures, an album, 1 year of online access to our pictures, my wife had a glamour session, and we had 8 hours of photography with them during our wedding day. During the ceremony and reception, you'll never even know Melissa and Jason are there unless they specifically ask you to do something. They are very flexible and accomodating in the planning phase. Melissa helped us plan our timeline for the day and captured all the pictures we asked for. We even had time to take a limo out onto the Gettysburg Battlefield with our wedding party and take some amazingly beautiful shots in the park. I have received many complimentary comments from our guests about how beautiful Melissa's pictures are. We loved the 2-person team aspect of their photography, which got different angles. Melissa and Jason both have different styles too, which diversifies the kinds of pictures you will get. They are very creative and it's amazing what they can do with the light and exposure creating some amazing photos. We are very pleased and I know we will be asking Melissa and Jason for their services again in the future. Highly recommended!!!!

    Melissa and her husband Jason were spectacular photographers who accomodated our requests for specific photos. We got married in Gettysburg and wanted to take some shots at specific monuments at the battlefield. After having checked in with the Park's service, we were able to take the most amazing photos. Melissa and Jason are great compliments in such shoots since they have different styles; Melissa is more natural light, casual poses while Jason is more photo-journalistic realism. He also captures candid moments in very unique ways. From big moments to small, they really go the extra mile to chronicle your special day in photos and to make you laugh along the way. Their humor is infectious and immediately puts the whole bridal party at ease. Oh, and did I mention Melissa shot our wedding while pregnant? Talk about a trooper! Could not be happier with the photos we've seen to this point.

    And if you want a boudoir session - Melissa is your gal. I do not have a perfect body and there was never a moment that I felt extremely self-conscious during the shoot. Looking at the resulting photos, I felt sexy and proud of myself! Melissa has a way of capturing the best side of a woman in a way that empowers her to see herself the way she actually is and I love that! Thank you Melissa and Jason for the work you do! It is truly amazing.

    Melissa and Jason were amazing! We could not have selected a better photographer for our wedding day! Our dogs were a big part of our wedding and they made sure to incorporate them into the pictures without a problem! The lighting and picture quality is amazing and went beyond our expectations. On top of the amazing photos, Melissa and Jason are down to earth, friendly people who made us very comfortable during all of wedding pictures. We could not have been happier selecting them and HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a top notch, professional, friendly photographer!!

    Melissa and Jason were AMAZING! We could not have found better people to capture our wedding! Not only are Melissa and Jason extremely easy to work with, but they absolutely *got* our sense of humor and made the experience of taking formal portraits in 95 degree weather fun. They are the perfect amount of involved - they ask questions when needed and make decisions just as easily. We were so lucky to find them and I HIGHLY recommend any and all couples (and families and dogs!) to work with Melissa and Jason.

    Simply the best. Jason and Melissa were excellent in every way - brought humor to the day - suggested pictures and poses both during the advance call(s) and day of. They did our engagement shoot in the snow and worked with us on NYE for our wedding and didn't complain - in fact Jason even got down in the snow to get some shots of us. Our pictures turned out incredible and we received them very fast after our wedding. I don't have any negative thing to say about them and I highly highly recommend them for your wedding.

    We absolutely loved Jason and Melissa! They always made feel at ease and they even got my husband to smile, which is hard to do without it looking goofy! We had a blast working with them! I would highly recommend the McClain's for any event!

    My husband and I worked with Melissa and Jason and we are absolutely thrilled with the service we received. They are amazing people to work with, very easy going and flexible. They did our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos and everything has turned out amazing. Melissa also did boudoir photos for me as a wedding gift for my husband and they were fantastic as well. They are full of personality and from the moment we met them we knew that we had to use them for our photographers. When you book with them you get two photographers for your engagement photos and for your wedding day which produces many fabulous pictures to treasure for years to come. They were also quite helpful with recommendations on other vendors and were very quick at getting back to us with any questions we may have had. Overall we are more than pleased and definitely will recommend them to anyone who asks for a reference or for future picture needs! They are a fantastic husband and wife duo!!

    If you are reading this, just know that you don't have to research, or look for another photographer anymore! Melissa and Jason McClain are the best of the best! They are FUN, innovative, unique, and make YOUR wedding day experience YOURS. They are not your "cookie cutter" photographers getting the same shots at every wedding. Your experience with them will be truly one of a kind, and PERFECT. You wouldnt even know they were there, unless you actually went up to talk to them (except for the bridal photos of course)! Capturing your wedding day is the most important part of planning a wedding. If you want it done beautifully, and perfectly, they will not disappoint! Best decision made right here!

    Strongly recommended!!! Melissa and Jason McClain were our photographers for our wedding in Gettysburg this May. During the planning process we were looking at a few different photographers and the McClains won us over instantly during our first meeting. They are warm, funny, honest, and truly care about their clients. We did our engagement photos with them as part of the package we selected. They made us feel comfortable and we had a ton of fun. Melissa gave us suggestions on where to do the shoot and tips on what to wear. They also have a blog with tips and advice on a variety of wedding photography topics (how to make the most out of getting ready photos, upcoming wedding trends for the year, finding your wedding inspiration).

    Their packages and pricing are quite reasonable especially for how beautiful and high quality the pictures are. They have a quick turn around for the pictures and your family and friends will all love them. A colleague of mine saw some on Facebook and immediately commented on how great our photographers were.

    Melissa and Jason are not only wonderful photographers, they're also wonderful people. They made us feel so comfortable throughout the process and always responded quickly to any question.

    Melissa and Jason are the greatest photographers! We used them for our engagement pictures and wedding, and couldn't have asked for more amazing pictures. They were quick to respond to any questions and comments, and took our ideas and turned them into beautiful pictures. I highly recommend using them as your photographers.

    Melissa and Jason are fabulous photographers to work with for your wedding day - or any event for that matter! We booked them for our May 2015 wedding, and could not be more pleased with their work ethic throughout the whole process and the final outcome of our wedding pictures. I would recommend them to anyone!

    Melissa and Jason photographed my wedding at the Brandywine Manor House in Honeybrook, pa on December 13, 2014. Both Melissa and Jason were extremely helpful though the whole wedding planning process. I often emailed Melissa with questions, and she would respond quickly. On the wedding day Melissa and Jason worked very well with my bridal party. They were open to suggestions and they worked wonderfully with my venue to help create my winter wonderland theme. My guest still continue to comment how Melissa and Jason seemed to be everywhere taking pictures. I was completely relaxed with them, and would recommend them to anyone!
