Melvin gets five stars, and that's saying something considering he hasn't even gotten to the main job that we hired him for yet! My fiancee and I were looking for wedding photographers, and found some very good options but felt immediately comfortable and excited to work with Melvin. There's something inherently warm and sweet along with intelligent and creative that you immediately sense when you meet with Melvin, and that translated perfectly into our engagement shoot which he recently published. Not only was it a fun day, but he really made it more fun. When many photographers place you it feels like a chore, when he does it somehow just made us laugh and feel at ease. He's the perfect package of personality along with quality artistic photographs, and we're confident that it will be just as magical for our upcoming wedding pictures!

UPDATE - Our wedding went off BEAUTIFULLY, and every member of my family raved about Melvin and his crew. We've gone through weddings for each of my older siblings, and each of them have resulted in photographers who left no mark or impression, or at least not in a good way. Melvin's demeanor and personality put people at ease, everyone liked him instantly, and the initial photos we've already seen are magnificent. A+ for Melvin!

It has taken me a while to write this review (my husband and I got married in November) because I was waiting to see if a little dream of ours would come true…and it did! Largely because of Melvin and his amazing photography skills. What dream, you ask? Making it onto Style Me Pretty!

http://www.stylemepretty.com/california-weddings/palos-verdes/2014/04/04/romantic-cliffside-wedding-at-la-venta-inn/

Melvin was the consummate professional on our wedding day, but our relationship didn't start there. My mom and I met Melvin at a bridal expo at the very beginning of the wedding planning process. We took one look at Melvin's portfolio and knew we had to have him. We hired Melvin to do our engagement photos and wedding photography, and I'm so glad we did! I'm not going to lie, it can be a little awkward to have someone taking a million pictures of just you. But Melvin had us laughing and comfortable after the first picture. He was great at suggesting poses and the pictures all came out looking natural. After our engagement session, we knew we had made the perfect choice for our wedding photographer.

As for the wedding day, I couldn't have asked for anything more i. When Melvin was standing in front to us taking pictures, he was fabulous…but half the time I never even knew he was there, and we had pictures of EVERYTHING! He and his second shooter were present without being intrusive, which is a huge deal when it comes to actually being able to enjoy your wedding day. And, as you'll see from the post on Style Me Pretty, his pictures are FLAWLESS! If you are considering hiring Melvin, consider no more. DO IT!

Melvin is the MAN! His humble personality, creativity, and energy is amazing! We discovered Melvin at The Queen Mary bridal show and from then on we have been fortunate enough to have him as our engagement and wedding photographer.

On the wedding day, he met my husband and his groomsmen to take pre wedding shots at The Hotel Fullerton. He came early and took great shots at the hotel room, in the lobby, and outside in the parking lot. All of the guys appreciated his down to earth personality and his guidance with each snapshot. Then he came to the venue and did the same for the bridesmaids. He had us posing in a way where it was natural and not forced. It definitely shows in the pictures. They came out beautiful! To be honest, I was a little worried about having just one photog and not getting all the moments, but he came through for us. One of the wedding guests referred to him as a "ninja." One second he was taking a picture of us in the courtyard and the next he was up on the second floor taking a top view. Wow!

He worked his MAGIC like he said he would during the reception. He was everywhere and even went above and beyond by taking table pics and wedding guest group pics because we asked. We can't thank him enough for capturing all the special moments of our day. To top it all off, he finished editing the wedding images earlier then expected and put together a wedding photo montage as an added bonus. Seriously?? Can he be anymore great?! I watched the montage at work and tried to hold back the tears. Melvin is such a storyteller that I was able to relive the day and feel our love coming through with the images.

Thanks Melvin for everything!!! We truly enjoyed your company and having you as our photographer.

We cannot say enough about Melvin and his outstanding work on our engagement photo shoot in San Jose! He was very patient with his two completely novice “models”. Thankfully, Melvin was very good with instruction, posing us and getting great picture ideas as we moved from location to location…(in the rain…and wind...and cold!). We were impressed how he took our playful suggestions during the shoot and made them work. He has an exceptional eye for how to use colors, lighting, and angles. The dock pictures, indoor hallway pictures… just fantastic. Melvin was professional throughout our long shoot, but he also managed to show great enthusiasm. His excitement about the pictures he was capturing was very contagious; it really helped us relax and kept up our energy throughout the photo shoot. When it appeared that we were going to lose the evening light, Melvin even offered to meet us a few days later at a new location to capture a few more shots… right before he was to head back to LA. However, he was able to work with the lighting conditions and got some awesome shots by the boats on the dock and with the Christmas lights (and he kept us from falling in the water!). We hope we can get him for our wedding, and we are highly recommending him to all of our friends. Thanks again Melvin!

Melvin is amazing! We didn't know him when we scheduled our engagement photo session but he made us feel very comfortable during the shoot. He was funny, posed us and gave us tips, told us what to do, and the pictures were beautiful. He has a really great eye for positioning you in certain ways, noticing certain angles, and really has a way of capturing the beauty of the surroundings and appreciating the buildings/backgrounds resulting in great pictures. Plus he's really quick (I'm amazed we got some really beautiful shots in less than an hour), doesn't make you do the same poses over and over, and really has a talented eye. Everything turned out better than we could've expected and I would not hesitate to hire Melvin for any photography needs. Thank you Melvin!

Melvin did an outstanding job on our engagement photo shoot, really made us looks like superstars. This guy knows his stuff. Had a great mix of instruction and patience. He did a wonderful job framing the shots, really took our suggestions well, took great care in setting up the lighting and props. Really impressed with his post-processing and editing. The final session photos he delivered looked like they were out of a fashion mag. Anyone looking for a photographer, this is your man.

Melvin was incredibly awesome! The quality of his pictures are outstanding, he was very flexible with us and willing to do whatever pictures we wanted, and on the day of our wedding he was able to take charge and place people where they needed to be placed in order to get the pictures taken under a time crunch. We flew him to Durham, NC for our wedding - he has no problem commuting across the country and is very flexible about it, even though we put him on a red eye flight! The value of his services is awesome too - we were able to pay for his flight plus the photography wedding package for less than the price of high-quality photographers in Durham! It was truly a pleasure working with Melvin and I would recommend him hands down to everyone I know getting married.

Melvin Gilbert Photography is the best photographer we have came across during our wedding hunt. You can tell that Melvin takes extreme pride in his work and delivers such impeccable quality. Melvin always answered any questions me and my fiance' had. Melvin was really professional, but a pleasure to be around as well as very personable. The value of his work is very reasonable. It was a real pleasure to work with him on our engagement photos and I look forward to see what our wedding photo's will look like.

My husband and I felt in love with the quality of Melvin's pictures. We love how he captures the moments. During the process of planning our wedding, Melvin kept in touch with us and immediately answered all my calls. For our engagement pictures, he made both of us feel comfortable and gave us directions to take great photos. On our wedding he came with two photographers and captured every moment. We have so many photos and everyone is always giving us compliments on our pictures. Also, we were able to see a sneak peek of the pictures right after our wedding. Melvin is an amazing photographer to work with and we are going to recommend him to friends.

Melvin is awesome! We are so lucky to have had him be our engagement photographer! He is not only professional, talented photographers, but he is just simply nice people. It was a pleasure meeting up with him. He genuinely wanted to do quality work for you and it came through when you talked with them. We had our engagement photos in alamo squre san francisco. Melvin did a great job capturing the beauty of the sun set view as well as the affection between me and my fiance. It was the first time my fiance and I took professional photos, but because Melvin was so real and friendly, it felt less like photographers taking our pictures, and more like friends. Because of this, we were more relaxed during our session, and our photos came out more natural. Melvin had some great ideas for story telling during our engagement photos. The idea of storytelling had never occurred to me, so I was pleasantly surprised when he brought it up. It was definitely something he didn't have to do (since I would never have been the wiser), but it definitely added so much fun to the photo session and energy to the pictures. Thank you Melvin!

Melvin was a great and professional photographer. He made us feel special, he was always on time, and flexible to work with. If you get the pleasure of working with him you will be able to tell that he truly enjoys & loves photography, and his pictures are a vivid statement. He was always trying to make us feel comfortable and always was asking us what we liked or disliked. He is also very funny, I really love that. He is super patient and he is always looking for the perfect shot and the client best interest. I will definitely work again with him. His pictures will make me relive those special moments on my wedding!!!

Well.. Melvin is great! My wife and I first met Melvin the day of our engagement shoot. He showed up with a smile and camera in hand. We had no idea what to do or how to pose. We did know what style we wanted but we had little to nothing for Melvin to work off of. He started taking pictures and we had fun. Melvin just kept us confortable, many times just telling to pretend like he wasn't there. So my fiancé, at the time, and I started asking each other, "Wonder what Melvin's up to? Too bad he couldn't be here to hang out." After the shoot was done, we were clueless to know what they were going to come out like. Anticipation grew until we finally got to see the pics. WOW!!! This guy is amazing! We got exactly what we wanted. Our friends and family initially said we paid too much. When they saw the pics they flipped their script. It was worth every penny!! Thanks Melvin. You haven't seen the last of us!! I hope you'll want to add baby pics to your blog eventually.

I hired them for my daughter's wedding. It was outside at my ranch with about 250 guests. He brought an assitant and they were both very courteous, professional, patient, and they took more photos then I could have imagined. The price was great and included an engagement session. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a quality photographer. Every photo I have seen thus far is superb and of he highest quality.

Melvin is Marvelous! I have never met a business person that befriends you instantly (...and over the phone at that). Because of his rapport with my husband and I, the day of the wedding he was able to put our whole wedding party at ease. This in turn, produced photos that were natural, full of life, exciting and absolutely GORGEOUS!

In addition, because he was so funny, when we were getting ready to take our group shots, he would say something to make everyone laugh. These were great moments captured. He was so flexible and was more than willing to extend his stay with us because we had time constraints at our wedding venue. Talk about a real life HERO!

He also befriended our wedding coordinator so much so, that she had to hire him for her wedding that was soon to follow.

I would recommend Melvin to anyone for superior quality, skills, flexibility and value. He is better than a professional, he is YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD PHOTOGRAPHER!

We love you Melvin Gilbert!

Melvin was very responsive to our needs for our wedding. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. Our son is always a little awkward to get to smile for pictures and Melvin took some of the most amazing pictures of him I've ever seen. He really captured each of us wonderfully.

Melvin was highly recommended to us by a friend who happened to be our planner as well, and he is great! He will suggest to you what will look good and etc. He will lay down on the ground just to take good shots. I'm so happy we got him. Thanks Melvin!
