Absolute best experience I’ve ever had with a photographer. Mel made us feel so comfortable and confident in front of the camera. It wasn’t an awkward experience at all. My husband hates having professional photos done but he actually had fun working with Mel and her partner. It was a very natural experience. We had her for our engagement shoot and our wedding day and it was our best decision to have them part of our day they elevated the experience. We will be hiring Mel again to work on our maternity and family photos in the near future.
Melanie did an amazing job taking brand and lifestyle photographs for my business. She made me feel at ease and was very accommodating during the process. I am beyond excited about the photographs and could not recommend Melanie enough to anyone looking to have photos taken.
As an art director/designer by profession, I work with many photographers, and Mel’s professionalism and quality of work is undoubtably top notch. Recently, she took photos of me for my website. As a creative myself, I am used be being behind the camera, and Mel was not only able to take my direction in terms of what I wanted for the shoot, she also made me feel so comfortable despite being rather camera shy. Mel delivered a wide variety of beautiful images that I could not be happier with, and I will no doubt work with her on any project I can in future!
Mel was simply amazing. From beginning to end she was professional, unobtrusive, friendly and fun. After our first meeting she instantly "got us" and the vision we had for our big day. The day itself we felt in safe hands and it was like having a great friend there with us. Not only is Mel incredibly good at what she does, she is a fabulous person - in short, everything you could wish for in a wedding photographer.
