Being a wedding photographer has allowed me to shoot in several different lighting situations. I have equipment that allows me to be flexible for anything that's thrown my way.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, I attend every wedding that I book.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I only book one event per day. Rarely do I book more than 1 event per weekend.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I use a professional digital SLR camera, with a variety of lenses. This allows me to be able to shoot in lots of different ways so you get a good variety of shots.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes, I always have a back-up camera with me *just in case!*
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
If your event goes over the hours included in your package, it's no problem! There would be an hourly fee for any hours over your alotted amount. Any additional amount would be paid before I leave your event.
Do you charge for travel?
If the wedding is close by, travel expenses are included in your package price. If your event requires an overnight stay or extensive travel, I'd be more than happy to work with you to come up with estimated travel costs so I can be at your event!
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
You will receive your gallery within two months. It depends, however, on my workload at that point in time. I will keep you updated so you will have an idea of when to expect your gallery.

You will receive copies of all the digital files on a DVD.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, in a password-protected viewing gallery, which will be provided to you once the images are edited and ready.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer some amazing albums. I custom design them myself, then send them off to be professionally printed and bound by a popular wedding album company. The product is quite amazing! All albums are flush-mounted and come in leather or linen.
When will the client get the final album?
The design of the album takes about 2-3 weeks. After you proof the album design and submit for approval, the album takes about 2 weeks until it arrives at your doorstep!

When we first began our wedding journey, I knew there were a few things that had to be perfect: the food, the flowers, and most importantly the pictures. I spent countless hours researching photographers all over Maryland and DC. I knew I wanted the pictures to have a certain “vintage look”. I couldn’t really describe exactly what I wanted, but once I saw Melissa’s photos I knew she was the one. Her pictures had the vintage look I was going for, but also had a certain “feel” to them. When I looked at her pictures I could almost “feel” what was happening. I could feel the anticipation before the groom saw his bride, the excitement of the first look, the love as the couple said their vows. Her pictures evoke emotion, and that is one of the main reasons I chose Melissa.

Melissa was great the day of the wedding. I didn’t have to worry about showing her around the venue, when I arrived she was ready to shoot which put me at ease. She was really great about picking spots for pictures and getting everyone where they needed to be. There was an issue with my maid of honor’s dress which pushed the schedule back. She never complained, and worked around the problem, shooting other things while we fixed the dress.

We had a semi large wedding party, with the groomsmen being pretty rowdy. She didn’t seem to mind one bit, she even joined in on a few of their jokes. During the reception they started a “spin the bottle” dance circle, and when the bottle landed on her she humored them by busting a move (doing a cute twirl). She stayed with us the entire day/night, and never stopped shooting. We decided to have a second shooter who was equally amazing. They worked so hard to capture every moment of our special day. I have only seen a few sneak peeks of our wedding day pictures, but I know they will be nothing short of perfect. I can’t thank Melissa enough for everything; she really was everything I had hoped for and more.

Melissa was responsive, helpful, and accommodating. When we first reached out, she provided plenty of package options and was willing to be flexible with our wedding day's schedule. Throughout the planning process, Melissa always responded promptly to our emails and calls, and before the day she came up with a detailed itinerary that relieved stress from the day. We loved our photos, enjoyed the process, and would definitely recommend her!!!

Melissa was awesome and I strongly recommend her. Our picutres are GORGEOUS. She is so relaxed yet professional, and I had no qualms about her at all - I knew photography was one thing I did NOT have to worry about. Most importantly, in my view, she is invested in her clients and you feel like she is another supportive friend or family member at the wedding. She was really organized, which was great because then we had more time with our guests.

Melissa was a pleasure to work with. She was very laid back and listened to what we were looking for in our engagement and wedding photos. She delivered great photos and captured our day beautifully. Melissa even took a train up to NYC with a 5 week old baby to shoot our engagement photos, which was more than appreciated and I'm sure a long and exhausting day for her. I will point out that it seems like these days many couples are looking to receive their fully-edited photos by the time they return from their honeymoon. This was not an expectation that we had, nor was it an expectation that Melissa set for us. We were perfectly fine with the 8-week turnaround for our final photos (they were worth the wait); however, if it is critical that you receive your photos quickly, this is something that you should be aware of. We also ordered a few albums from Melissa. I found them to be a bit on the expensive side; however, the quality was great and her creativity in putting them together was evident. Overall, worth the expense as they are now a lifelong keepsake from our wedding day.

Melissa was the most amazing photographer. In the days and months leading up to the wedding she was the consummate professional, responding to any question or concern I had which I unfortunately can't say for most of the other vendors I used for our wedding. On the day of the wedding, Melissa not only made sure she got "the shots" but made it fun, glamorous and made me feel like a bride should feel on her wedding day....beautiful and special! In the month after our wedding, Melissa kept me up to date on the progress of our photos and I feel we received our photo CD in record time. Most importantly though, the quality of Melissa's work is simply outstanding. The photos had such warmth and perfectly represented my husband and my personalities. We are so thankful that Melissa was there to capture all of the special little moments on our wedding day. And now that I am a new mom I can't wait to get a session with Melissa to capture this new chapter of our lives!!

Melissa was excellent to work with. Her flexibility, creativity and kindness all created an exceptional experience for my Husband and I. Not to mention her photographic talent. We found her services through seeing a friend from college's wedding photos on facebook, and just decided- we have to get her to be our wedding photographer! She is extremely organized which eases your mind as a bride when you have 1,000 things to keep track of at once. Above all her professionalism is reflected in the photography she produces. We constantly get compliments on our wedding and engagement photographs and continue to be impressed ourselves! Thank you Melissa!
