Melissa was an absolute pleasure to work with and did an amazing job capturing our wedding and engagement photos. Photography was our highest priority and the first vendor we booked for our wedding. We searched for months, in Southern and Northern California, for a photographer that had just the right combination of photojournalism/contemporary/simplicity and are so happy that we came across Melissa's work.
Our wedding was held in Sonoma and Melissa worked with us from San Diego to make sure everything was taken care of before, the day of, and after the wedding. Whenever I had a question or concern she was always quick to respond and very accommodating - she really went above and beyond what was expected. Our wedding pictures look amazing and we really couldn't ask for more - we even had a guest say that they hope she can photograph their wedding!
Thank you Melissa for all of your hard work, we will forever be grateful! We look forward to using your services in the future as our family grows :)
We previously thought wedding photography was a scam -- everyone charges so much! But Melissa was referred by a friend and had reasonable rates, and once we worked with her, we knew we had made a smart move. Melissa's warmth, kindness and pure talent put us at ease in front of the camera. From our engagement session and wedding, she magically produced the best photos either of us have ever taken (and all our family and friends agree!). I just re-watched the slideshow Melissa made for us, and it still brings a smile to my face and tears to my eyes. She captured the day perfectly -- the love, the laughter, the friendship, the beauty. Her subject is romantic, but her work is art.
Melissa did our engagement photos and our wedding photos. They were so beautiful! Melissa was very flexible in scheduling and willing to travel to the site of our choice for our engagement photos. She made the shoot fun and easy for us and our son who LOVED her! Melissa made the proofing process easy for us as well. I feel so blessed to have worked with such a great photographer. She truly captured great memories of our special day for us!!! I don't know what I would have done without her!
Since our Wedding, Melissa has photographed our growing family. She gave us beautiful memories of my first pregnancy and our family about six weeks after I had my daughter. She is an amazing woman!
I feel Melissa did a WONDERFUL job and I am referring her to a friend who is getting married next year.
Melissa's work is amazing. She is fantastic at capturing emotion!
