After 8 years as a wedding photographer, my experience base is extensive. My photography is known for natural expressions and romantic moments. My main goal is to not only capture everything (I mean it, I don't want you to forget anything!), but to offer you professional, quality service. To put it simply... I'm laid back, I don't get stressed at weddings and I'm easy to get along with :) I count it a privelege to capture one of the most important days in a couples life. Read less

Melissa was wonderful to work with. She really got to know us and get a feel for what we were looking for. Melissa was also really flexible about working around our schedules as we were planning a wedding from a different state. She was also good about communicating through email and if I had any immediate questions she was available for me to call her as well. She did really good engagement pictures that we wanted and the photo booth area turned out great. On our wedding it was cold and rainy and Melissa was great about knowing where to go to find the good spots and still get beautiful pictures. The turnaround for the photos is very fast and they turned out beautiful. Melissa was easy to work with and made everyone feel at ease. I would highly recommend Melissa to any couple for their wedding.

First off- I researched photographers for weeks, and I am SO glad that I did. I have been blown away by Melissa’s photos every step of the way. I can not begin to tell you how amazing the pictures are. Even the ones that I thought may turn out funny looking were awesome. Trust her creativity and she will provide you with wedding photos that will blow you away. I only have a sneak peak of my entire collection- but the few that I did receive have gotten rave reviews by everyone that has seen them. She gives you the classic photos that your parents want, but also gives you the creative artsy pictures that make for centerpieces and canvas photos. She took a photo of us in the rain that everyone I’ve shown is STILL talking about. She is just that good.

She is worth every penny spent so book her now! You will NOT be sorry!

Melissa was a pleasure to work with for my wedding. She was wonderful to coordinate with and captured my wedding day perfectly. I enjoyed working with her and would do it again for future events. The pictures were beyond compare. Me, my husband, family and friends loved how all the pictures turned out. I would recommend Melissa to everyone.

If you're looking to work with a photographer who is hassle free, passionate, artistic, and shows beautiful work I would definitely recommend Melissa Vannest Photography. Her website is a great reflection of what how your event will be captured. We couldn't be happier!
