A Girl In Love Photography is unique, a blend of fun, romance, whimsy, emotion and influenced by life itself. It is about being real and not shooting people as if they were living; instead we artfully photograph people as they are living. We believe that you do not have to be made into something else to look amazing, you can be yourself, truly and the beauty of who you are can shine through. We believe in the most personal attention to each of our clients and provide only the very best products and green packaging. Our images have been described as "beautiful","organic", "moving", "unique", "forthright" and "inspiring". We aren't JLEE (just like everyone else) because neither are our clients. Read less

AGIL and Melissa in specific captured us and our wedding perfectly. She was flexible and open to ideas (I kept throwing new ideas her way and she kept rolling with them) as well as professional. I was a little stressed out, and she told me a funny dirty joke to calm me down. It worked. I would recommend her to anyone.

Five stars all day. Melissa is the absolute best! Her photos are beautiful and unique to each couple so you don't have to worry about any over posed cookie cutter wedding photos. She is super professional and flexible. She worked with our ever-changing timeline. She is super fun to work with and when she's taking pictures it feels more like you're just hanging out with friend rather than taking your wedding portraits, which was great for me because I hate having my picture taken.

Oh yeah, and the photos from our wedding day (and engagement shoot) are absolutely amazing.

The absolute Best photographer! Not only does she take amazing photos, but has the best personality and fantastic to work with!
My now husband found Melissa and A Girl in Love Photography online while searching for photographers for our wedding. We both knew that the photographer and photos were one of the most important factors of our wedding. Once my husband found Melissa, he described her photos as the Wes Anderson of the photography world, which I think is an amazing thing if you haven't seen any Wes Anderson films!
We had the joy of working with her for engagement photos (which she was most willing to come to Chicago where we lived at the time), I had a boudoir photo shoot (which she made me feel so comfortable and beautiful for), and our wedding of course! Each session was incredible, and the photos, I couldn't have asked for anything better, they are breathtaking!
Melissa has a unique style that no one else has. Our photos are beautiful, vibrant, in the moment, everything we wanted to capture on one of the most important days of our lives!
We would recommend A Girl in Love Photography to everyone for any type of celebration! We're excited to work with her again in the next stage of our lives with kids and family photos!!

We had a small wedding, so photography was very important to us to share the experience with our friends and family members that we couldn't invite to the big day itself. Melissa was great at not only capturing the "big" parts the wedding, but also the fun and intimate moments as well. We were married in a museum and she did an excellent job including the architecture and exhibits in many of our photos. I also appreciated that she understood what we wanted out of the photos; she totally embraced our wedding party doing T-Rex hands in front of the T-Rex skeleton! Throughout the entire process, Melissa was attentive to what we wanted, beyond kind, and just a blast to work with!

Melissa and Sean shot my cousin's wedding in Michigan a few years ago. I knew then that I wanted them to be my photographers. It was a major sacrifice to fly them in, but it was so worth it!! Not only are they awesome photographers, but they are such a great couple to have around on your wedding day. I can't tell you how many of my guest commented on how nice they are and the great job they did and that's without even seeing their final product!

Excellent cannot describe the quality of service of Melissa Squires and Sean. While she was efficient she was also fun, maybe guests had no idea she was taking their picture. The photobooth was a blast and the guests loved it.

Melissa is so kind and you feel like you have known her forever. She takes amazing pictures that are so creative and yet at the same time takes those traditional ones that you need. She does whatever you want! My family and wedding party loved her and so do I!

Melissa was easily my favorite vendor to work with. She is just so FUN! From our first meeting in a coffee shop in Ann Arbor to our engagement shoot to the wedding day, she was just a blast to work with. Her responsiveness was excellent -- she generally responded to my emails, phone calls, and text messages IMMEDIATELY. I never once had any difficulty getting a hold of her. She was flexible and willing to work with me to customize a package that included everything I wanted. When I explained to her that I needed my engagement pictures back quickly for a project I was working on, she got right on it and they were done in just two weeks! I haven't seen my wedding pictures yet, but the engagement pics turned out amazing!

On wedding day, she brought her husband to be a second shooter. He was such a nice guy, and they work so well together, we had a great time! Don't underestimate the importance of getting along well with your photographer and their assistant - you will likely end up spending more time with them than anyone else on your wedding day! They were professional and personable at the same time, and everyone loved having them around. My mom (who is not always super quick to warm up to people) was giving her hugs at the end of the night, and said she felt like a part of the family!

They even set up a screen in the reception room to be a "photo booth." I wasn't sure if my family would use it or not, but they really got into it! Someone even told me it was the best idea they'd seen at a wedding! I cannot wait to see how those pictures turned out.

I gave her a 4/5 for value for cost because, while I'm sure my pictures will be awesome, she is pricey. We definitely went over our budget in this area, but quality photography was so important to us and we couldn't find anyone in our price range with a style we loved. I'm hopeful she was worth it!
