The value of Melissa's work is exceptional. From the begining of the process, she was easy to work with, professional and responsive. She followed-up with us after every meeting, checked in with us in between our meetings, and was always willing to take the time to answer our questions.

She was (early) prompt to every meeting and the event; she lives on the West Side of the Valley and our location site was in far East Mesa (almost Queen Creek). She was there to answer questions/help us stay on track at the event when necessary.

The photos were phenomenal, a great blend of traditional and candid shots.
She sent us some shots while we were still on our honeymoon, and my husband kept commenting that he was impressed because he hadn't even been aware, at the time, that she was taking some very special candid shots of him and his loved ones before the ceremony.

I would recommend her to anyone for thier wedding or special event.

Melissa was very easy to work with, which helped the flow of our day. I have a medical condition that would require the touch up of every picture that I was in. Right away other photographers would start on their cost to edit each picture. But with Melissa Mary she just smiled and said absolutely this can be done & she makes final touches on all her pictures for sharpness or what ever they may need.
Finally someone who didn't want to charge me extra to look beautiful for our big day!

Melissa did a fantastic job with our wedding pictures. She took the time to meet with us a week before our wedding, at our wedding location, and took notes on what we wanted out of our pictures. She was very friendly, professional and obviously very skilled, as her pictures were beautiful. I would definitely recommend Melissa as a photographer...I am so happy we made that choice!

Melissa was great! She was very professional with everything! She really met all of our needs and answered any questions we had. She worked with us on our budget which really helped a lot. She really catered to all of our needs and we could really tell that it was her passion to be working with us rather than just a paycheck. She really made us feel comfortable and was really patient with everything that we wanted. The photos came out really well, we we're very satisfied with her work. If we ever need pictures in the future we will be returning to her!

Melissa was the perfect choice for my wedding. I wanted a group picture of everyone that attended and Melissa finished the task flawlessly and even took the time to make sure everyone was in the right spot and paying attention! Every little detail was taken into account (like the position of my flowers) so the pictures turned out perfect. I received so many compliments from my guests as to how professional and sweet Melissa was during the entire event.

Getting my images took a little longer than expected, but was well worth the wait. Any little request was taken care of quickly and with a smile. Melissa will do everything she can to make sure you are happy with your final product. I strongly recommend her for any wedding or any event!
