Packages start at $1095 - Offering creative wedding and portrait photography. I look at each photo as a work of art, not just another shutter click. Discounts for Off-season Weddings as well, just inquire.

Even after 8 years, I still tear up when I see a bride walking down the aisle toward her anxious and excited groom. I still laugh when I hear those hilarious speeches and toasts. I still smile when I see the flower girl twirling around in her pretty little dress. I still LOVE photographing memories!!! Every wedding is different, every bride has her own vision for her wedding day, and I’m so passionate about focusing my attention on each wedding as a unique and individual experience. I only shoot 1 wedding per weekend so that your wedding day is a top priority.

Over the years, I've been able to call my clients my friends. They trust me with their memories and it's the best feeling when I get to see life full-circle, shooting engagement photos, then their wedding, capturing the first moments with their newborn baby, and celebrating their child's graduation.

Being a bride, not that awful long ago, I understand the excitement of planning a wedding. I'll do my best to answer any questions you have. I know it can be stressful, especially when it comes down to those last few months before the wedding day, but I hope you get to enjoy the whole experience of it all. I'll do my best to make sure your photography vision is one thing you can relax about. Brides have asked me before what advice I'd give to myself if I had to plan my own wedding all over again. My advice, make sure to take a few moments after you've said your vows to just hold hands and whisper a few words to your new husband, the day goes by so fast. Enjoy that first moment together as husband and wife.

I hope to hear from you soon to discuss your wedding vision in more detail.

I can not say enough positive comments about Inspired Images By Melissa. I planned my wedding from Las Vegas and I was getting married in Syracuse NY. I never got to meet Melissa before my wedding day. Although I got to keep in touch with her through emails and phone conversation. It was then I knew Melissa was different. I could tell she cared and she was in this profession because of the art form and her pure talent. She arrived early on my wedding day and got right to work. She let me know if there was any shot that I thought of as the day progressed to let her know. As for the quality of her work? All the pictures came out beautiful and perfect. I am very picky and I could not find one flaw. Her price was affordable. I would recommend Inspired Images by Melissa. She is a gem to work with.

My husband and I were married at Boldt Castle in Alexandria Bay, NY. Being that my husband and I live in Virginia, we were very concerned about everything going smoothly. Melissa was a God send. She even had her husband who is a great photographer as well come as a second shooter for our special day. They caught every moment perfectly and went way above and beyond. All of my friends and family LOVE my pictures (so do we!). I would highly recommend Melissa to anyone. We were so glad they were part of our wedding.

Inspired Images by Melissa was by far the best photographer we could have ever had for our wedding!
Being an out of state bride and having a horrible experience with the photographer we had previously spoken with, Melissa and Josh are amazing photographers! Melissa made the whole process simple, stressfree, and fun! The pictures for the engagement shoot and the wedding were all awesome! and out of the 4000+ pictures we got, we couldn't find one that we didn't like.
We look forward to using them in the future for all of our photography needs! which says alot in my opinion because we live 3 1/2 hours away and would not think twice about driving up by her to make that happen. I definately recommend using Inspired Images by Melissa !

Melissa was by far our favorite of all the vendors we hired for our wedding. I can't say enough about the quality of her work. Melissa captured every moment of our wedding- even many moments we ourselves had missed.
When our baby was born this Spring we had no doubt that we would be calling Melissa for family photos. Once again we were speechless and reduced to tears when our beautiful pictures arrived.
I would definitely recommend Melissa to anyone in need of a photographer. You will not be disappointed!

You will not find a better value out there. The wedding photos were outstanding from our wedding. We invited Melissa back for baby photos with the same outstanding results. She will find photo shots that you will not expect. She can also put together a photo video that will blow you away. You will not be disappointed!
