They act as part of your family and accordingly, want everything to be perfect for you. They were with us not only for the wedding and reception but from the Friday night rehearsal dinner all the way through to the Sunday morning farewell brunch.Sent on 05/26/2012
I would recommend them strongly to anyone who wishes to preserve their special weekend for ever.

I cannot begin to tell the world how absolutely delighted we are to have found Melanie and Randy! From the very first contact my fiance made with them until now (as we are steadily getting our galleries loaded online,) we could not imagine our wedding photography being any better. There are so many positives that if weddingwire would let us have 10 stars, they would be a perfect 10. For the details...Sent on 05/08/2012
We had our wedding at Della Terra and I can't imagine only having one photographer on site for such a great place. They split up (Randy with the guys and Melanie with the girls) for the pre-wedding pictures. They were extremely accommodating and made sure that we did not see each other before the ceremony by using walkie talkies to keep track of each other. With such an expansive venue, I don't think one photographer could do a couple justice.
They met with us when we arrived and took a couple of shots at their studio (surprise :) ) and used those pictures to give to our guests, so that they would be able to view our pictures as they were uploading them. As most of our guests were just in for the day, this was a great way to make sure that they would have access without us having to email.
Photos started to show up in our gallery early on the day after our event, and I think we are up to probably 15 folders currently!
On a side note, we had a couple of problems with another part of our event and they bent over backwards to try to help solve the problem by contacting friends of theirs in town the day of our wedding and have continued to go over and above the call of duty with prompt emails responses, phone communications and even providing some local knowledge after our wedding to make our stay even better.
Again, I could write all night, but won't. Just know that if you are getting married in Estes Park and you're looking for a fantastic photographer, I don't think you could go wrong with Melanie and Randy!

My wife and I could not have been happier with Melanie and Randi. Within minutes of inquiring about their services they were in contact with us answering questions and sending pictures of potential locations for our wedding on a weekend. That was heads and toes above the responsiveness we got from other potential photographers and wedding planners. I was in constant communication with Melanie getting everything planned and organized. They connected us with a wonderful local pastor and had suggestions for every little thing we needed to get done. She also went out on a brutally cold winter morning and took some pictures of locations for us just so we could see since we were out of town. We ended up going with the location she recommended and couldn't have been happier. They were wonderful and very professional in the photography and we couldn't have been happier.Sent on 03/19/2012

Melanie and Randy are wonderful photographers and people. They made every step of the process clear and simple. They made the photo shoot fun which meant that they captured the true joy and excitement of the day. We will cherish the photos forever.Sent on 02/05/2012
Thank you for being a part of our momentous occasion.

Randy and Melanie Humphrey are not only excellent wedding photographers in Estes Park, but they go above and beyond your expectations. Melanie helped me get into my difficult, but beautiful wedding dress and transported me in one piece (she wrapped me up in sheet so my dress stayed clean) to Lily Lake for the ceremony. Melanie even picked out some nice music to play from her iPod....you can choose your own music, but I trusted her to pick out something nice. They even followed us to the reception at The Stanley Hotel for more photos under the same affordable price. I highly recommend them to all bride's out there!!Sent on 10/26/2011

Melanie and Randy did a fabulous job at not only calming my nerves but setting up some wonderful photos for us to cherish for the rest of our lives. Their positive attitude and professionalism was exhibited right from the first phone call to the last photo taken.Sent on 07/22/2011
One thing that I found extremely pleasant, outside of what was already mentioned, was that Melanie and Randy were not intrusive...you never knew they were there taking photos - they blended in and mingled with the guests which provided some wonderful candid shots.

We knew we had found the perfect partners for our wedding photography when my daughter Ashley and I met Melanie and Randy Humphries of “The Perfect Portrait” in Estes Park during our first interview. We knew from the beginning that the wedding planning would be challenging with many hurdles to jump: the wedding site was out of Boulder, Ashley lived in Fort Collins (2 hours away) and was working 3 jobs, while I lived in Southern California as a full time elementary school teacher. All the planning and coordination had to be long distance on a wing, a prayer, a handshake and a lot of trust. Although many, many hurdles popped up along the way with the different vendors, including the wedding site going through 3 different wedding planners during the time our wedding was on the books, the photography remained the one true constant. Melanie often took on the title of “wedding planner” lining up other choices when something fell through during the last couple of months before the wedding date, with a smile, a phone call and a solution. Melanie and Randy were not only professional, compulsive (with incredible attention to detail) and true to their word, but compassionate, helpful, responsible, respectful of the families wishes while blending into the background to flawlessly get the job done, while becoming friends and family through the process. Through the kind and gentle guidance of Melanie and Randy, the day before the wedding, as well as the wedding day itself became the true celebration of friends, family and the beginning of Ashley and Chase’s new life together we had all hoped for and more! The wedding photos are absolutely amazing and so beautiful, the rehearsal photos captured all the silly oopsies and smiles. The photos captured the incredible mountain venue using traditional settings, along with whimsical settings, dramatic settings and informal spur of the moment settings. Their intuitive ability to bring out the best in every member and every setting made for the spectacular family heirlooms we will have from this wedding celebration. The reception video brought a connection to the past with pictures of Ashley and Chase growing up bringing tears of joy, tears of memories of those no longer with us, and tears of hope for the future ahead for Ashley and Chase. Words will never adequately express the gratitude I have for Melanie and Randy Humphries and their flawless professional manner of handling their business with a handshake, a promise to live up to the trust given to them, and a finished product that exceeded every expectation!! It is our pleasure to include Melanie and Randy as members of our close community of friends and family.Sent on 10/09/2011

Melanie and Randy Humphrey were fantastic! They not only provided beautiful pictures for us, but they helped coordinate our wedding. From the rehersal walk all the way to the wedding reception. We could not had done it without them. They helped make everything run so smooth and effortless that it made everything go with ease. I would highly recommend them to any bride and groom!Sent on 07/17/2011

Melanie and Randy were amazing! They got photos of everything and really captured peoples personality. My husbands family hates photos and we now finally have some great ones. I couldnt be happier. My family has used them for senior pictures, family photos and my wedding. We vacation every year in CO and would never go to anyone else in the area.Sent on 06/30/2011

Both Melanie and Randy were there for us the entire weekend. They were able to take amazing shots without us ever feeling like they were in the way. Not only are they great photographers but their knowledge of the area is extremely beneficial! They were able to suggest other great vendors as well as work closely with the vendors we had already chosen. They have a great inside knowledge of the estes park area that ended up being a huge help to us.Sent on 07/23/2011
Blanche · Married on 06/12/2011
This was a destination wedding and I called Melanie first to find out their packages/prices and availability. I was unsure how to proceed but within a few moments, Melanie set my mind at ease, recommended several other vendors that I might be interested in, and answered all of my questions. In the following days, I called/emailed her many times and she always answered in a positive, reassuring way. We made our arrangements and when the day arrived, Melanie and Randy were ready, excited, and provided the guidance and reassurance my daughter and I needed. The success of our wedding was largely determined by our partnership with Melanie. I HIGHLY recommend them!!Sent on 06/22/2011

Randy and Melanie were wonderful! From the moment we met untill we said our last good byes we felt as though they were friends doing us a special favor, not working. Our unforgettable occasion was our wedding day, June 4, 2011. The Humphreys captured all the love and happiness we were feeling so that we can always return to that time of joy with just a glimps. They are perfect wedding photographers, inspiring, still working, laughing, and loving after years of marriage themselves, thank you guys!Sent on 07/20/2011

The "Perfect Portrait" is an understatement, Melanie and Randy went beyond anything I could of ever imagined in capturing my wedding day. The photo's brang to life my ceremony... Although our families were not at our ceremony, Melanie and Randy, thru pictures transferred all the emotions of love, intimacy, beauty, laughter, tears, joy, excitment and brought them to life, click by click, picture by picture, so that our families will get to experience the day with us as if they all were there. As I look at our pictures, our wedding day seems just as if it was happening all over again, the memories of the day are so real... A dream that I could only imagine, came true with tremendous effort from Melanie and Randy. I am truly grateful.... Christine Gensler, Edgerton, WisconsinSent on 01/05/2011

Our experience with Melanie and Randy has been wonderful, from start to finish. From providing me with excellent referrals for the cake, flowers, etc. to serving as sort of a "coordinator" overall. We had some complication and confuison with the church we were being married at, and Melanie helped us work through that, and was very flexible for last minute changes that were needed. They have alot of great ideas, and I am confident that our wedding turned out so much better because of their involvement. Not to mention the picutres - which turned out GREAT. Having both Melanie and Randy there provided great coverage, and they had great ideas for the photos. The pictures really turned out good, and we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with both Melanie and Randy.h Melanie and Randy.ps/bloSent on 12/19/2010
