"For many years I searched for what I really wanted to be passionate about. In between jobs I would travel for months at a time, backpacking all over the world. I bought a camera and I was having the time of my life. It was fun, exhilarating, uncomfortable, exciting and I was hooked. Despite a great career in D.C, I wanted to pursue a life with constant adventure. Quickly, I realized that the camera was my ticket to enter in to that experience. I quit my job and moved to New York City.

Along the way I found purpose in the work I was doing. Through the years my camera became a tool for me to be there for people, to tell their stories to countless others. That moment when I clicked the shutter to photograph a mother dying of cancer, barely making it out of the hospital and surprising her daughter on her wedding day was unforgettable. Being on a mountain top in Titanyen, Haiti capturing a pair of TOMS on my feet and glancing over at an orphan with her own pair, coincidentally, truly reflecting the amazing One For One movement was unbelievable.

When not photographing I spend that time with my amazing girlfriend, Sera, and as well working passionately with Fish4Hope, a for-purpose organization that builds sustainable communities in impoverished regions of Haiti.

I feel so incredibly grateful to have found my purpose with photography and I cannot wait to tell your story through photographs."

I've been in 9 wedding parties in the past 12 months and Studio Saldana was the best photographer I've come across (by far). We used them for our wedding and we're very happy with the previews we just received (we got married on 4/30/16, they were delivered to us by 5/3/16). Melissa was fun, energetic and took risks to get the right shots (running across Park Avenue, standing on the 17th story balcony of the hotel, etc.). Going into this I didn't think there was much of a difference between photographers, but Studio Saldana proved the influence a photographer has on your wedding photos. The value for the money is incredible. Hire Studio Saldana, you will not be disappointed.

Steve and Melissa are AWESOME! They are so talented, creative, and easy to work with. It was a pleasure having them photograph our wedding day. The pictures came out so beautiful…it’s going to be so hard to choose just a few to frame! We also did an engagement shoot with Melissa in Central Park. Looking at the pictures you would have no idea it was a hot, humid, cloudy, July day in New York City. Thank you to Steve and Melissa for capturing this incredible time in our lives!

Steve and his team were amazing to work with during our entire planning process. Melissa did our engagement photos and she was super cool, creative and flexible. Steve and Angel shot our wedding and they were both inconspicuous yet gave us some guidance during our bridal party pics. Steve is really easy to work with and he's a great guy! Highly recommend Steve and his team.

Studio Saldana is based in New York and I was getting married in Pittsburgh. I had in fact already found a photographer in Pittsburgh for the wedding pretty early on. Then my (at the time) fiance and I did an engagement shoot with Melissa Robin and everything changed. She was such a pleasure to be around and so talented at her job that it just felt natural. Even my husband got through the 4 hour shoot with no problem. We thought about it and realized that this is someone who, unlike most of your guests, will actually be with or near you for most of your wedding day. It was a no brainer, even though we lost our initial deposit on the first photographer we were thrilled to fly Melissa and her partner Katlynn out to Pittsburgh to photograph the rehearsal dinner and wedding day. Best decision we made! Highly highly recommended!

Melissa and Jennifer were so fun to work with. Both photographers were really laid back, putting us at ease and keeping us on schedule as we went through the craziness of the day. We asked for creative and artistic shots and weren't disappointed. Melissa was also great with a quick turnaround of the photos after the wedding. We loved getting a preview while on our honeymoon! I'd highly recommend working with Studio Saldana if you are looking for a reasonably-priced but highly skilled and creative NYC photographer.

We could not ask for a better photographer for our wedding and engagement shoot.

We started with a list of nearly 200 and worked our way down to Saldana based on responsiveness, website, creativity and meetings.

Both Steven and Melissa are super responsive, professional and also just really awesome people.

All of our close family enjoyed working with Steve and Melissa, and they delivered everything they promised on time if not earlier than expected.

I would recommend Studio Saldana to anyone looking for a photographer, Melissa and Steve were simply amazing.

Steve and Melissa are photography geniuses!!!!! Their photos are so much more artistic than all the other wedding photos I have seen. I had photos taken both indoors and outdoors and the way they played with the light made everything look so magical. I also loved how they did a combination of posed photos, candid moments and a combination of the two. They were both so professional and made me, my husband and the rest of the bridal party feel so at ease. Most of the time I didn't even notice when they were taking photos - they had these huge lenses that let them take close ups from really far away which was great for the ceremony portion. I would highly recommend both of them for any type of photo session!!

Wow! Steve and his team are not only amazing artists, they are great, genuine people. You can always tell when someone loves his job, and with Steve, he loves it and he has a passion for it which shows in his personality and photographs. My husband and I had our engagement shoot as well as the wedding day with Steve. It felt just like hanging out with an old friend. Steve made us feel happy and comfortable in front of the camera. He is also extremely professional, easy to reach, and very accommodating. We can't recommend them enough!

What can I say about Melissa? Just amazing in every way. The level of care, attention to detail, professionalism and bubbly personality led to the most wonderful experience-and I haven't even got to the end result, the photographs!!
The photographs produced were beyond our hopes, they captured every moment so well and are so much more than the usual wedding photos - they are imaginative, creative and her use of light and the background led to the most wonderful outcome. A mention also must go to her assistant on the day, Jason, who is also extremely talented - I mean what a combination for our wedding, it was an absolute bargain for the service and outcome, we could not be happier!!!
Highly highly recommend Studio Saldana-they are the best, no doubt about it! Thanks again you guys

Working with Steve and Melissa from Studio Saldana was wonderful. They are some of the easiest people to work with, prior to the wedding and during, and helped to make the stress of the big day melt away. The way they work is so organic that it doesn't take you out of the moment. They were very responsive leading up to the wedding and were in contact often, never making me feel like I was just another customer. They were patient with me when I took forever to send information to them, which was very much appreciated during the wedding planning process. They had wonderful location suggestions for our portraits after the ceremony and the photos turned out beautifully. The turnaround time for the final photos was faster than expected and we love our photos. I very highly recommend Studio Saldana.
