Melissa's photographic style tells the story of your day in a relaxed and candid fashion that emphasizes relationships. When couples feel comfortable, it's easier for them to express themselves naturally. These are the moments that Melissa looks for and enjoys documenting for her clients. She has a passion for weddings and enjoys the joy of the day and looking for the "heart" of each wedding. Melissa gives each of your images individual attention and is happy to provide the highest possible service to her clients. Because this is so important to her, she limits the number of weddings she does yearly in order to offer this level of attention. Her albums, which are available in many styles, give her the opportunity to create a custom design for you that becomes a treasured keepsake. She and her staff are committed to doing everything to make your photography experience the absolute best and are always up to any challenge. An award-winning photographer with over 20 years of experience, she can be found most days in her boutique studio in historic downtown Easton, MD.

Melissa & Tom were amazing! Melissa was the first vendor we met with for our wedding because we felt that the photos were a huge part of the day! We knew right away that we were going with her! She has a way of capturing emotion like no one else. We LOVE our pictures!!! Melissa was always very prompt with responses and never made me feel as if I was bothering her. She got excited with every new idea or detail I told her about! She really cares about your day and wants to make sure she gets everything you want! We highly recommend Melissa Grimes-Guy Photography for your wedding! I know when the time comes, we will go back and see Melissa for maternity/baby pictures! She truly is the best!!!

Melissa was an aboslute joy to work with. She accomodated every request we had and truly understood what were wanted for our pictures. My husband and I like more candid shots and she is really the best at that format. Our portraits turned out wonderfully and the candid shots before, during and after truly captured the night. I couldn't have asked for a better result. The way she captured the wedding has really allowed me to re-live the night over and over again!

This is actually the second time that our family has had the pleasure of having Melissa (and her assistant, Tom) join us as our wedding photographer. Three years ago, Melissa and Tom took amazing pictures of my father and stepmother's wedding so, when I got engaged, there was no question as to who would be our photographer. Melissa was our first call.

Having just sorted through the 1,800 pictures from the wedding weekend, we will be hard pressed to narrow down our favorites. Melissa and Tom truly captured the spirit of the weekend (from the formal family shots to the crazy friends on the dance floor). We know that we'll cherish these pictures for the rest of our lives. As further testament to her talents, we used some of her amazing past photos of the Eastern Shore as gifts to our parents. A great way to commemorate the weekend -- the shots were amazing.

Melissa was such a joy to work with and we would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing photographer.

Melissa was the best vendor we worked with. When she first met with us, she was open and honest with us. She gave us her imput without being overly aggressive.

She was always super responsive and answered our questions almost immediately. By the time our wedding day came we felt like one of our friends was take the pictures.

Her pictures and wedding albums are lovely and really capture the moment.

Melissa is the best! We wanted pictures that weren't your "traditional" groups standing, bridal portraits, etc. and Melissa was able to do that. She was able to use everything our venue had to offer as far as making great pictures which was great too -- we loved our venue because of its beauty and unique charm and we love that we have it all in pictures to remember for our lifetimes.

She is also someone who makes you feel really comfortable, which is hugely important on your wedding day. She has fun with you and really listens to what you want. We even suggested a few picture ideas and she remembered them ALL during the day!

Thank you forever, Melissa!!

My wedding was almost 4 years ago and people still are commenting about how wonderful they thought our wedding photos were. We did a lot of searching for the right photographer, and could not have been happier with Melissa's services. She is very professional, kind, and really listens to what type of photos you want. I preferred a more candid style, and she also captured elements of our wedding location that made it even more special. It is her attention to detail, and experience that make it worth the price. I actually didn't quite care for the style of the main photo album pages (very thick and slick), but it will last forever. I ordered prints to display and am very happy with those.
