My fiancé and I just finished our engagement photo shoot with Melvin yesterday and I have to admit, I was a bit nervous at first before starting the session...but the moment he started shooting, I just felt completely comfortable around him. He definitely knows what angles would look good with each of us and I love how he goes for the more romantic and candid shots. My fiancé and I also decided to do a 2nd engagement shoot with Melvin in a few weeks since I wasn't too thrilled about the windy weather and he was more than happy to do another shoot for us! If he wasn't already amazing enough, he sent us our photos this morning! Talk about fast!

Thanks Melvin for everything! We can't wait to do the 2nd shoot and we're so glad that we booked you to shoot our wedding day as well! =)

Melvin gilbert!!!!! My husband and I cant thank him enough on our engagement photoshoot! We first met Melvin through solano 888 videoproduction for our wedding this august 1. (By the way check them out too!) Instantaneously, as we started working with Melvin, he completely made us feel comfortable. It was more like a friend taking photos of us rather then a professional photographer. He was able to capture our moments and most importantly he was able to capture the true us with a simple click on his camera. We loved every minute of it!!! Hes very encouraging because we we're a little shy at first, but later on it just became natural. And as a photographer Melvin sees every detail needed to get a great shot.

We had a 3 attire photoshoot, a formal, semi formal, and casual in LA....because we wanted to capture where we are from...and Melvin sure captured the beautuful architecture of the walt Disney concert hall, the mark taper forum, and the beautiful buildings of LA.

Seeing Melvins other work, we were hooked on his images becuase we knew he do this for us....and no disappointments at all! We believe as a up and coming professional photographer, Melvin has a bright future ahead of him and know that he will do amazing things throughout his career. We are so blessed to have met him and only look forward to our big day this summer!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts melvin!

It was a pleasure working with Melvin. We did a session when my daughter was a couple of months old, and again recently at 3+ years old. He's very easy going and energetic. He makes it fun taking pictures. Even my daughter had lots of fun getting her pictures taken. Will definitely use him again for future kids.

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.
