We have five years of wedding photography experience together (we used to be known as Sweet Little Photographs) plus Tim has an MFA in photography (and almost ten years experience photographing editorial portraits, musicians, travel stories, and fine art). Because of that we are much more than this new wave of post-Instagram wedding photographers. We bring a high level of experience and professionalism to all of our shoots. We come prepared for anything, roll with the punches, and have a freaking blast. Seriously, try to stop Merrill from dancing at your wedding. And try to keep Tim away from the cake. Maybe it's our laid back California vibe or the fact that we’re just awesome, but we don’t need strict timelines or weddings where everything goes according to plan… because none do! We’re there for you and ready for whatever happens. We like to capture the event as it unfolds naturally, rather than staging a production that feels forced. We want to keep the wedding about you, not about us or our notions of what your wedding should be. It is your wedding after all, right? Read less

We hired The Melideos as photographers for our wedding in September, and we couldn’t have been happier! After months of researching and talking to photographers, we finally stumbled across The Melideos. After seeing so many “instagram” wedding photographers, we were thrilled to find someone with real skill, attention to detail, and love for bright and timeless colors! Merrill answered all our neurotic questions via email and over the phone, and was always in contact with us up to and past the wedding. We had an awesome time meeting Tim and Merrill in person at our engagement shoot in Malibu Creek State Park - Tim’s bad jokes really are pretty great. They got us our engagement pictures much sooner than we thought, and we absolutely loved them. We were so excited to see them again at our wedding, and once again they did an amazing job! Our wedding was a schlep to get to, and we wanted a lot of specific photos, but they handled the long, bumpy dirt road and our big, loud, hard-to-wrangle families with good humor and joy. They captured some really amazing moments from the wedding and reception (surprise paper airplane fight!), and we still get goofy smiles every time we look at them. We would highly recommend The Melideos to anyone who wants professional, joyful, and timeless photographs.

Tim & Mer are amazing!! Hands down the best couple out there in the photography game.

I stumbled across their website in the early stages of planning and fell in love with their style, I knew they would be the perfect fit for us. Tim replied within 15 minutes and we booked right away! They were the first photographers we talked to and knew instantly it was going to be an awesome experience having them around on our wedding day. And we were totally right!!

We got married in the middle of CT and they came all the way out from Cali to shoot our wedding. From the minute they showed up they made us feel completely at ease, they are so kind and fun we wanted them to stay and party with us when they were done! Merill even helped me bustle my dress after the ceremony which is so not part of the contract - she was a life saver!

My husband and I are beyond thrilled with the final result - they captured every important moment and even managed to get a shot of every.single.wedding.guest getting down at the party!

Tim & Merill were one of the best choices we made planning our wedding and recommend them to anyone who will listen we literally cannot shut up about how awesome they are.

We found Tim and Merrill from Sweet Little Photographs on the Green Wedding Shoes blog's recommended vendors. After looking at a couple different recommended photographer's websites, we decided on Sweet Little Photographs (specifically for engagement photos as our wedding will be on the east coast). Their photos are more fun and more unique than your average engagement photos.

Communicating before the shoot was easy and prompt. They arrived a few minutes early the day of the shoot and were great about listening to our ideas. We had them running all around the Santa Monica pier, and they were very accommodating. All around lovely people.

They told us we'd get our pictures in two weeks, but we actually got them sooner. We love them! They're beautiful, fun, and us.

I'd highly recommend Sweet Little Photographs. Also, go visit Merrill at the Lovely Bride. It's very cute and really zen bridal shop. And Merrill is great.

The pictures turned out really great and they were really fun and easy to work with! Things got a little hectic right after the ceremony with a bunch of photos needed in a short time, and they did a great job handling that for the most part - it definitely wasn't easy!

Sweet Little Photographs is the best! Tim and Merill did an amazing job on our engagement and wedding photos and can't thank them enough. We are so glad we choose them out of the 20 photographs we researched and liked them the best. I've taken photos myself and it is tough! These guys are good at not wasting time and taking GREAT photos with nice compositions, lightening and technique. Obviously, these guys are pros with talent and have the eyes to take perfect shots! With fun and great personality as well as flexibility, they made our first photo experience so easy and fun. Would totally recommend them!!

I came across Sweet Little Photographs' work while surfing wedding websites and thought we couldn't possibly afford their services. The work is amazing and captures the very spirit of love in such a crafty way! When we asked for more information on their packages we were floored to know they were within our reach. I was so glad we asked, or we would have really missed out!!! At that time, without hesitation we booked Tim and Merrill prior to their move back to LA from NY and we couldn't be happier with the outcome.

We're appreciative of their dedication and flexibility. Tim was recovering from a cold when he shot our engagement photos with Merrill. Although we all wanted to reschedule, it would have been a nightmare to get the time off work for my now husband and I. Tim was a real trooper! The pictures came out beautifully as they were able to capture the spirit of the setting (Griffith Park) and the joy if getting proposed to, AND our pooch Zoey.

Our wedding day, they arrived at our church early and ready to go. The pictures they took of us and our guests did what the engagement pictures did, they captured the moment and details that could easily be forgotten if gone undocumented.

I can't forget to mention that both times they provided us the image files ahead of schedule. If you've ever waited to reveal a roll of film you know how great it is to put the anticipation to rest! It was great to know Sweet Little Photographs is running a well oiled and professional machine to get the job done ahead of time.

I'm sure all brides say this, but...I can't stop looking at our pictures! The cute details they candidly captured in our facial expressions, the venue, our guests, everything! Thank you so much Tim and Merrill!!!

Wedding Wire asks, "Would you recommend this vendor to a friend?", but it will only let me click 'Yes' instead of "Heck yeah!". Oh well, that will have to do. :-P

But seriously, HECK YEAH - I would and have recommended them to many friends.

As an engaged couple, you have a lot of decisions to make- each with a crazy amount of choices- but if you've discovered Sweet Little Photographs, the decision should be made instantly. No need to look anywhere else; if they are available on your day, book them NOW. Your photos are pretty much guaranteed to be awesome.

How do you know this? Well, first based on the very gorgeous photos on their website, second based on the many glowing reviews, third based on the squeals of glee in the comments sections on their site, and finally, based on your personal interaction with them both prior to your wedding and on the day of. For us, they were very available and e-mailed and chatted with me prior to our wedding day so that we could iron out the details of the photos. And on the day of, they were so cheerful and laid back that everyone felt comfortable with them, resulting in natural-looking pictures and happy guests. (I heard a few times: "Who were your photographers? They were so nice!!")

Our photos are everything I'd hoped they'd be. They capture the mood and tell the story of our day perfectly. We are both so, so happy with them and will treasure them forever!

When we were shopping for photographers, we never expected to find such a dynamic duo as Tim and Merrill. Their company name is so incredibly fitting for these two artists. They have such a personal and relaxed approach to their shoots and events while maintaining incredibly professional and polished results.

We love their fresh and modern website and blog that features inspirational work and is always up to date. Each of their shoots seems to capture their clients in their style with a sweet vintage spin. They have found a charmed coloring palette in their finishing work that makes their pieces stand out from the ordinary wedding photos.

Rob and I had the pleasure of working with Tim and Merrill on an engagement photo shoot a few months before our wedding. It was the perfect opportunity for them to get to know our personalities and for us to feel comfortable in front of the camera. They showed up early to scope out the location that we had chosen, an enchanting library in our hometown. While Tim would change lenses Merrill would magically pull out adorable props from thin air – producing Audrey Hepburn and Clark Gable books for a laugh. We highly recommend the engagement shoot option if you have the chance – not only were the results amazing - but we will always treasure that experience.

What’s more – they are incredibly efficient when it comes to getting you your digitals. We were thrilled to see our photographs only two weeks after our wedding!

So if you are looking for a hip, modern spin on photography with a twist of vintage you have found the right people. You will get so much more than great pictures – you will have the pleasure of knowing this great husband and wife team! We are total fans and hope that we can work with them again in the future.

We could not have been more thrilled with the photographs from our wedding. Tim and Merrill captured the spirit of the day in a way that I would not have thought possible. They were also a joy to work with. They were responsive and attentive, gracious and kind. I could not recommend them more strongly.
