Love Notes

"Melanie came to my rescue after my initial photographer backed out just 4 months before our wedding. She was referred to me through my sister-in-law who had her take some family session photos for her. As a frantic bride, I was worried that photographers might not have our date open, so I contacted her immediately. In hindsight, I am overly happy that my first photographer fell through because Melanie was a dream to work with. I have a big family, and it was a hot day, and she took everything in stride and still captured perfect moments that melt my heart. She even took the time to show up before her contracted time just to make sure she had enough time to capture more of our getting ready details. Her photos are light, airy, and just gorgeous. Overall, I highly recommend Melanie, she's a perfect professional, wonderfully gracious, and amazingly talented!" - French Wedding July 2015
