Melissa is wonderful. Her talent and expertise are far beyond that of other photographers I considered for my wedding. She gives amazing personalized service and her packages are competitively priced. I would not hesitate to book her again for any other photography needs. What a dream to work with!

Melissa was perfect for our special day. She really captured the essence of our wedding. All our family members and friends really enjoy looking through the photos and continue to relive the day through them.

Melissa was also very prompt with corresponding from start to finish and was very flexible with scheduling our engagement shoot, especially since she had to come to California from Oregon.

We couldn't have asked for a better photographer :)

Melissa does beautiful work and she is very fun to work with. She does have her own style so you really need to make sure that style suits you before you ask her to do your wedding. Also double check all the prices and the things you get when you sign the contract because you don't get as much as you first think for how much money you spend. But the pictures were simply breathtaking so I think she would be a very good photographer for someone else if that is what you want to spend most of your budget on.

Melissa was extremely helpful, professional, and flexible during the shooting of our wedding weekend. We liked her work so much that we flew her form Portland to Paso Robles, CA. Melissa was very easy to work with and was very cordial and professional, even to those guests that found themselves in the way of her shooting. She had a lot of creative ideas for our shots that made for some excellent and very well done photos of our wedding day including us, our location, our guests, and all of the little details that will serve as a reminder of our special day for many years to come. Melissa is awesome!!

Melissa is awesome! Photography is something that you get what you pay for. If you want to only pay a little, you're only going to get a little. But unlike your favors that people are going to forget in a week, your photographs are for a lifetime. Melissa's work is amazing. On top of that, she's super responsive and really wants to make the day perfect for you. She knows what needs to get done to get you the best pictures, and then works with your wedding day to get you the pictures of your dreams. And she's tons of fun! I highly recommend her to anyone.

I always tell people that Soul Mates Photo has the ability to capture those quiet and small moments in a photo that are just beautiful! Melissa has a great vision and she is fantastic to work with! She makes you feel comfortable, she is good at giving direction and she is quick (especially with all the extended family portraits). We didn't ask her to come to Maui from Portland for no reason, she truly does a wonderful job!

She also does after wedding photos and portraits unrelated to weddings.

Melissa with Soul Mates Photography is the best wedding photographer you can hope to find. Hands down. My fianc� and I were very committed to quality photography for our wedding, and thus took the task of choosing a photographer very carefully. From our first meeting she captured our hearts. She invited us to meet us at her home, and she was instantly warm, friendly and personable. With her down to earth demeanor and joyful laughter that permeated our interaction, we felt an instant connection. We really liked her, and we felt like she really liked US, which was extremely comforting. We knew that she would capture the exact mood we were hoping to achieve, and have fun along the way! When it came time to talk turkey, we were a bit unsure about how much money we were willing to spend on product, and unsure about which products we would even want. Melissa completely understood our concerns the entire time; she never pressured us to spend more and worked with us to find a package that fit our budget, which was very comforting knowing we didn't have a photographer who looked down on us for our budget. However, by the end of our 5 month working relationship, we ended up more than doubling our budget for photography! We fell in love with our pictures so much that we no longer wanted just a DVD of the images; we wanted a DVD, specific prints, a handmade album AND Christmas cards! That is how fantastic her work is. Melissa not only photographed our wedding but also included an engagement session at a location of our choosing. Both sets of pictures are simply stunning-- the images struck the perfect balance of playful, intimate, romantic, stylish and how in love we are. We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw the proofs come back! Some of the pictures are so well-crafted, we felt like we deserved to be in a professional art gallery rather than just a wedding album. They brought tears to my eyes. Regarding our interaction, Melissa was a blast to work with. We felt relaxed and excited when we were having our picture taken, and Melissa was never obtrusive. On the wedding day she managed to wrangle all of our relatives into family pictures with ease and grace, and helped to structure the timeline of the day so we had plenty of time for portraits but didn't miss our reception. It was so wonderful to put such a confident, knowledgeable professional in control of organizing our day. She truly listened to what we wanted and made sure we got exactly the locations and poses we were interested in. Perhaps the element that most impressed me about Melissa was her one-on-one interaction via email or the phone. After it was all over and done with, I realized that I truly felt like Melissa's only customer; that is how much attention and enthusiasm she gives you. Of course she has many other customers AND runs a fantastic, well-written, stylish blog at the same time. But Melissa consistently replied to any emails I wrote back practically instantly and I never had to remind her of the details of our wedding. She was responsive and always eager to answer a question, offer insight, work out a new idea, or even just suggest an alternate wedding vendor. She was never put out by the length or frequency of my emails, just happy to help in a very knowledgeable, professional manner. THAT made me truly feel important and attended to. After having a small handful of other wedding vendors that were less that stellar, I can truly say that I know quality customer service and care when I experience it. Melissa was absolutely the shining star of our wedding experience, and we have amazing pictures to boot! My husband and I were laughing on our honeymoon how we forgot our camera, and wished we could have just brought Melissa on our honeymoon to capture it all! That's how much we enjoyed working with her. Melissa with Soul Mates Photography is the best photographer you could hope for. We were 110% thrilled with her service, product, professionalism and interaction. We couldn't have chosen better for an engagement and wedding photographer, and are intent on returning to Melissa for future photography needs like new babies and such! My advice to you is this: hire Soul Mates Photography to capture your special day, and you will fall in love and never look back.
