Digital.

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.

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!

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!

Melissa captured beautiful photos for our wedding and in the short time that my husband and I got to know her we felt that she genuinely cared and was so excited for us as a couple. It is evident in how she treats her clients, her kind words on her photo blog and the love through her photos that this is so much more than a job to her. This is her mission of the heart. I felt so completely at ease knowing that she was in control of capturing all the priceless moments of our wedding day as well as our engagement photos! I would recommend Melissa Barrick to anyone needing photography services. She is the kindest person you'll meet in the business world. She is very organized and prompt with emails and will bend over backwards to make sure you're happy with the final product. My only regret is that I no longer live in Maryland to have her capture future family moments for us. Thanks Melissa and God Bless!

We hired Melissa of MB Photography, LLC to photograph our wedding last year. Our contract included all day coverage (roughly 10 hours). Melissa also brought an assistant, stating she had full faith in her assistant’s capabilities. Close to 3 weeks after our wedding, Melissa called to inform me that nearly 2/3 of the photos she took herself on our wedding day were “gone.” She offered no further details or explanation regarding the photos, even though I kept pressing for an answer. I asked which photos she did have and she couldn’t tell me because she hadn’t gone through all of them yet, even though she had ample time do so by now.

My husband and I were devastated by this news. I emailed Melissa the next morning asking for an honest explanation. How are photos just “gone?” She replied that she lost one of her memory cards and was too embarrassed to tell us the truth, admitting this was a huge mistake on her part. She said she switched out the memory card from the first 2/3 of the day (6.5 hours of coverage to be exact) before our first dance, zipping up a pouch in her bag and when she got home that night, the memory card was missing. She said she checked her camera bags, her car, her assistant’s car, and only called our reception site and church, but never actually went there to look.

Again, Melissa never went over to the reception site to retrace her steps and look for the memory card. She only called to ask the vendor to do it for her. She had a responsibility to us as clients to ensure that her memory cards were properly secured and protected, and that she would take all necessary steps to look for a memory card if it did go missing, including revisiting the areas where photos were taken and retracing her steps. Melissa admitted to us that she did not do this. This is inexcusable and extremely unprofessional. Melissa should have informed us that the memory card was lost as soon as we returned from our honeymoon, not 3 weeks after our wedding, and she should’ve had the pictures that she did have ready for our review. Instead, it took her an additional week to go through the photos and post them to a gallery. I emailed Melissa daily inquiring about the delay and she stated her internet at home was slow because she lived in the country and it timed out during the day when she was at work.

There were about 900 photos uploaded for us to review. Out of these, around 25% were actually Melissa’s photos and the rest were from her assistant. The only actual photos from Melissa were from the first dance at our reception until after the cake cutting/bouquet toss. The list of photos not captured by Melissa included: everyone getting ready/dressed, details like my dress, flowers, rings, etc., first look pictures, formals of my husband and I before the ceremony, the entire church ceremony, formals after the ceremony with my parents and the wedding party, photos with the wedding party at the Lincoln Memorial, and photos of my husband and I outside our reception venue. This is a huge portion of the day on Melissa’s camera that was lost, specifically, 6.5 hours out of 10 hours, and most importantly, the entire wedding ceremony, which was extremely special and sacred to us as well as our family and friends.

Melissa explained that at least her assistant captured some of the morning and afternoon. Out of the pictures missing from above, her assistant provided only a handful of photos. Since Melissa lost her photos of the entire ceremony, I figured her assistant would at least have captured most of the ceremony. Instead, there were barely any of the ceremony (none of my father walking me down the aisle, giving me away, the wedding party walking down the aisle), the vows, ring exchange, and first kiss were blurry and out of focus or too bright. The formals after the church ceremony were not mirrored by her assistant so there is not one picture with my parents, nor any of us with our wedding party. The lost memory card contained all Melissa’s photos of us with our wedding party at the Lincoln Memorial, and worse, those few photos her assistant took at the Lincoln were terrible. They were extremely bright and not fit for printing.

I asked Melissa if she could edit her assistant’s photos since they were so bright and unclear and she informed me that she already had edited them and if she edited them anymore they would look worse. She admitted her assistant’s photos were “over processed” and that she was trying to “salvage” what she could at this point and was at the “mercy” of her assistant’s photos for any photos taken before the reception. Further, from saying how she put much faith in her assistant’s capabilities, Melissa changed her story and said she was still training her assistant and that she was still learning how to take photos. So, although we had a handful of pictures from her assistant that morning and afternoon, the majority were over processed and out of focus. They were not suitable for printing or use in a wedding album. To be honest, our guests took better pictures inside the church than Melissa’s assistant.

We spent the next 8 weeks trying to reach a resolution. From the time Melissa called me to tell me the memory card was lost, she should have made a clear offer of what she wanted to do to resolve what happened instead of being unclear and giving mixed messages, which only caused my husband and I more stress. Melissa’s email responses took days and even close to a week at times. In the end, she offered either a full refund or partial costs associated with a re-shoot to be conducted by her.

We decided against a re-shoot with Melissa as we had lost all faith and trust in her capabilities as a photographer and even trust in her as a person. She could very well lose the re-shoot photos as well. Melissa gave us the impression that she would rather forget about us and this entire situation. As a photographer holding herself out as a professional, who claimed this was the first time something like this happened to her, we expected her to go above and beyond in order to make things right. What struck a chord with us is that Melissa told us in our initial meeting before the wedding about how she had problems with her wedding photographer and lost many of her photos, having to use photos from family and friends to compose an album, so now that she was on the other end, we were surprised and saddened by how she chose to handle the matter of losing so many of our wedding photos.

The bottom line is that Melissa lost over half our wedding photos, not just a handful. Out of the 900 photos Melissa provided to us, around 700 were solely from the wedding reception taken by Melissa and her assistant, covering 3.5 hours. The remaining 200 photos were solely taken by Melissa's assistant, covering 6.5 hours in the morning and afternoon before the reception. This distortion between the amount of photos provided from the reception and those provided before the reception is due to the fact that Melissa lost her memory card which contained all images from those 6.5 hours before the reception (including photos getting ready, the entire ceremony, and formal pictures with our family and wedding party). It is not a matter of quantity, but a matter of quality, which we did not receive due in part to Melissa losing her own memory card which contained a large portion of our wedding day that was not captured by her assistant. Further, she waited too long to tell us what happened and wasn’t ready with a clear offer to remedy the situation when she did call us. Instead, it took over 2 months to resolve what happened, primarily due to the slowness in her email responses. We took her at her word of wanting to make things right, but in the end, her actions only illustrated how embarrassed she was and how she wanted to put this situation behind her, rather than go above and beyond and put all of her efforts into trying to make things right with her clients after she lost the majority of photos from the most important day of our lives.

MB Photography, LLC responded with the following comments:

I'm sorry to read that my efforts to fix the problems we encountered were not satisfactory to Denise. I refunded the entire contract price to Denise, and I'm happy that this money was able to help her get several still images from the videographer that she specifically wanted. I'm sorry that I could not completely reconstruct the wedding at an expense 4 times the original contract price, as this is an unreasonable expectation.

As a professional photographer I have a system in place for backing-up photos, inventorying memory cards, and providing a second shooter to eliminate the risk of not providing the customer with all the photos they expect. This process enabled me to provide 900 photographs to Denise from her wedding day taken by both me and my second shooter. The average bride receives 500-600 photographs for a 10hr wedding shoot, and is very happy with the results.

Photography is an art where style and quality of the images is up to artistic interpretation. I put samples of my work up on my blog so that brides can see samples of my photographic aesthetic. I stand behind my work and the work of my second shooters. I'm sorry that Denise was dissatisfied.

All wedding photos are priceless and each bride cherishes her wedding photos and her memories of her wedding day. I know this feeling personally and I try to provide each bride with the special personal attention she deserves.

I can't believe I haven't reviewed Melissa yet! She took our engagement photos in May of 2010 and photographed our wedding that same July, and even did a day after shoot for us the morning after our wedding (which she was so flexible for, due to my severely hungover husband). And she is, without a doubt, phenomenal! And that's an understatement! The pictures she took made me feel so absolutely glamorous, and I have never seen my (now) husband so excited about pictures before! We got so many compliments on ALL of our pictures, the most popular of which was "these should be in a magazine"! She is wonderfully talented and I find myself spending the days planning what other photo shoots we can hire her for! Thank you a million times Melissa!

I can't believe I haven't reviewed Melissa yet! She took our engagement photos in May of 2010 and photographed our wedding that same July, and even did a day after shoot for us the morning after our wedding (which she was so flexible for, due to my severely hungover husband). And she is, without a doubt, phenomenal! And that's an understatement!

Melissa is absolutely wonderful! She is so creative and artistic and takes beautiful pictures. Her work is constantly improving. She is very flexible and works with your schedule. She is great because you get her for your whole wedding day and not just for a few hours like some of the package deals other photographers offer. I would highly recommend her!

Your search for photographers has ended! Melissa Barrick provides excellent service and beautiful shots (and winning personality) for much less than others are charging. Book your summer weddings early - she's in high demand!

I checked out A LOT of other photographers before I found Melissa. She was professional, fun and very very talented. If you are looking for a photographer to capture your wedding in a modern, true to life way, she is the one!

Melissa made sure that we were comfortable with the process, and listened to and honored our requests. Melissa truly has a passion not only for photography, but people and capturing thier love stories!

The work that she displays on her website and blog will win you over! I would be happy to talk to any brides or grooms personally on Melissa's behalf.

Sincerely, Kirstin and Christopher Bull
