    Our Dream Wedding

    I had previous history wish Melissa. She did my daughter's wedding 3 years ago. I was impressed with her pictures and couldn't believe how beautiful they were. Well I got married this year and hired her. She was on top of everything. I never had to tell her more than once the date, time and venue. She was there early, set up and got to work. She took the most breathtaking, beautiful pictures. We've had nothing the compliments and people asking for her name and number. Not only did we get beautiful pictures but she put together a book of 55 pictures that were our favorites.

    Melissa Shontz Photography

    Melissa was an amazing photographer! We had a lot of fun posing as a couple and with the bridal party. She made all of us feel beautiful and look beautiful. We will be able to look back on our wedding pictures and see that we had a beautiful day. She truly captured the best of us!

    Pittsburgh's finest wedding photographer

    We had an outdoor music festival style wedding for my daughter. Melissa was professional calming creative and kind. The photos were top notch and she made the day fun and simple. I would highly recommend her for any event especially if you are concerned about dependability. Perfect in every way.

    Friendly and Fantastic!

    She was super easy to work with, despite the fact I am a total scatterbrain. She was very kind, and patient when the ceremony started a bit late (naturally, my fault). The pictures she got are incredible in variety, style, and absolutely beautiful. A wonderful day was perfectly preserved.

    Melissa is a wonderful photographer who did a wonderful job capturing our special day on July 28th. Melissa is very professional and has great ideas for capturing both traditional and unique photos. Something we appreciated was that Melissa takes the time to get to know her clients. Since day one, she treated us like a close family friend over just another client. She always made herself available to answer our questions, was open to suggestions of styles of photos important to us, and offered suggestions. On our wedding day, Melissa did an excellent job capturing each moment of our special day, from getting ready to the celebration. She also did an excellent job capturing special moments during our ceremony without being intrusive. During the reception Melissa even interacted with our guests making it feel more like she was family than a vendor. We are so thankful for the beautiful photos Melissa captured from our special day. It will be so hard picking our top picks for our photobook.

    Melissa,
    What an amazing woman! She is so friendly and always has great ideas for different pictures! Very helpful and I'm so happy that I booked Melissa as my photographer. I haven't even gotten my wedding pictures back yet and I cannot wait to see them! Knowing that they are going to look amazing! Thank you Melissa!

    Melissa was amazing from start to finish. The pictures she got truly captured everything we felt that special day. You can feel the love in every picture and it takes someone especially gifted to be able to do that. She also really worked with us on the price and what we could afford. She was just such a blessing to us and our family and our family and we plan to go to her and only her for all our future family photos

    Melissa did a wonderful job capturing our engagement photos and wedding day! I wanted to have more natural looking photos (i.e. bridal party walking together, bride and groom stealing a kiss, my sister and I laughing) and also photos that showed the details of our day. She was able to understand exactly what I wanted. Her prices were reasonable and quality of photos were great. I would recommend doing both the engagement session and wedding day photos package in order to get to know Melissa better and for her to get to know you as well. Unless you often take professional photos, being the center of attention on camera can be slightly uncomfortable! Melissa provided a great "tips" book when we booked with her to help us decide on engagement photo outfits and other details I would not have thought of (even with Pinterest!) to help us take great photos. I highly recommend her and would definitely use her for baby/family photos in the future sometime!

    Melissa did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding. I never felt like she was intruding during the wedding or reception and she also made sure to get every important shot. We just got our pictures back last week and they're all amazing! I highly recommend Melissa for any wedding or event that you may have.

    Melissa Shontz is not only one of the most professional, creative, and talented photographers around but she is a joy to work with. We were so pleased with her attentiveness and interpersonal skills. She made everyone feel comfortable, and needless to say created a great environment. She also was very fair with her price.

    Melissa personalized our photography session so it was about my husband and I, not just about getting pictures done. She was very professional and awesome at her job. We loved every moment of it.

    Melissa is wonderful! She is easy to work with, very friendly and knowledgable, and she does beautiful work. She offered more than other people we spoke to before our wedding, and all of our finished products are just gorgeous. I recommend her to everyone.

    Melissa did a great job working with bright sunlight and deep shadows at our outdoor wedding. Anyone can use a digital camera to take lots of pictures, but Melissa is a professional photographer, and really knows what she is doing. Also, she was unobtrusive, creeping around like a little mouse. .

    Melissa did a great job capturing beautiful shots of our engagement session! She is very reasonably priced and has worked well with us (as a long distance couple). We are so excited to continue to work with her the day of our wedding!
