  • Melissa not only captured the joy of our special day, she also went above and beyond what would be expected of a photographer. Everything little thing we didn't think to bring, she had with her. A few people in the party forgot to cut off the clothing hanging straps in their dresses, but it wasn't a problem because she had scissors with her! She also had tips on how to quickly button up the back of the wedding dress and bustled it up for the ceremony in no time at all, which was great because it always took us forever to find where the buttons were hiding. When it was getting too hot during the reception, she checked with the venue about opening up the doors for us. She had such a great attitude and helped us out in ways we never even expected. And the photos! We're absolutely in love with them. They're so beautiful and elegant, but they also show us for the huge goofballs we are. She really captured the fun of the day. As the bride and groom you're so busy that it's inevitab... Read more

  • Melissa is so very much more than the most talented photographer you'll meet. When Rob and I first agreed to mawwaige, we agreed on two things: first, as New Hampshire residents, it had to be in October, when the leaves are at their most magical. And second, which October leaf-peaking weekend would depend on Melissa's availability. We would wait a year, if that's what it took. We knew that no one else would be able to capture the tenderness, the silliness, and the love that our little family of three had grown together. Long story short, she said yes, and we were elated! From behind-the-scenes gorgeous shots of the details that made our wedding so very "us," to the expressions she captured on our faces, it was all that we wished for and more. Wedding, family mini-session, brilliance and more, Melissa will make your world radiant. She will help you see in the beauty in yourself, in the people you love, and in every moment that follows.

    😭😭😭❤️ being a photographer has so many highlights, but having a wedding planned around my availability is bar none. I'm so happy I could be there for you all!

  • Look no further Melissa is the best! We are so happy to have met her and are so happy she was the one to capture our wedding day! She was able to capture everything better than we could have ever imagined! So friendly, hardworking and reliable. She really cares about the people she works with and that makes a huge difference. Everyone at the wedding loved her. I would highly recommend her!

  • Melissa is absolutely the most amazing photographer and human ever! She was so kind and helpful for my wedding, I don't know what I would have done without her! I was running a bit late and as soon as I got there she helped me get all settled in and communicated to my husband to be that I had finally arrived. We loved all of our wedding photos and will definitely be recommending her to everyone who is looking for a photographer in New Hampshire!

  • There is not enough time for me to write about how incredibly AMAZING Melissa is as both a photographer and as a human being. Melissa shot our wedding 3 weeks ago and her day started with a bang - my mom's dress zipper broke while putting on the dress (damn seam!). Needless to say, there was some pretty major freaking out going on in the suite because we needed to be en route to our venue in about 30 mins. Well, Melissa came prepared, not just to take photos, but for literally ANYTHING. She had all sorts of gadgets and sewing materials and she literally put my mom's dress back together. While the atmosphere in the room had gone from excited to complete anxiousness, Melissa had a calming sense about her and reassured us everything was going to be fine. And it sure was. Now, moving forward to THE PHOTOS. We have not even received our full file of photos yet. We have only seen the ones she shared with us on her website, and I am already in complete awe. I already knew she was great, but b... Read more

  • Melissa really made our wedding happen. She rolled with the weather threats, kept us all on pace, even helped me get dressed, cleaned the makeup off my dress, and put on my earrings. We would have been lost without her organization and exceptional help every step of the way, not to mention her bright smile and great personality. I'm so grateful that we found her for our wedding and I can't wait to see the images she produces! Melissa, you're the best! Thank you!

    You're so kind! It was an absolute honor to be a part of your day! And the weather knew better than to get in your way!

  • Melissa was absolutely amazing to work with! She did our engagement and wedding wedding photos. As someone who is not the most comfortable in front of the camera, Melissa made us feel so at ease and we had a ton of fun shooting our engagement photos on the beach! When the wedding rolled around, Melissa was so detail oriented, she kept us on schedule and made sure we all had fun! She went above and beyond the call of duty: fastening boutonnieres, bustling my dress, and keeping everyone on track! She came highly recommended to me from a friend who used her for her own wedding and we were amazed with the beautiful work she did! We were so incredibly pleased with the photos when they came back (quicker than quoted) and would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding or special event photographer!

    Thank you guys so much! It was so wonderful to work with you and a pleasure to watch you celebrate your love!

    I'm so happy I could put your mind at ease! Joyous is the best word I can think of to describe the two of you! So joyful and full of love - it was a pleasure!

  • Melissa was fantastic. She listened to what we wanted and got to know us. The engagement pictures are beautiful! Day of she was able to capture the details, while managing a large family with many kids. She had everything. She helped to fix some lace falling off the flower girl's dress, bustled my dress and worked great with the other vendors. We were able to see a few sneak peak pictures and can't wait for the rest!

  • Melissa is equal parts wonderful photographer and wonderful human being. Aside from her obvious talent and beautiful photos, she is someone I genuinely enjoy being around -- and I think that's really important when working with a photographer, because it's typically not the most comfortable experience for most people! She is fun, funny and full of personality, but still takes her job seriously and clearly has a passion for what she does. I always have a fear of coming across awkward in photos and walk away wondering how they will turn out, but Melissa has a way of relaxing people, making them laugh, and bringing out the best in them -- with the end result being great photographs that capture life's most precious moments & memories, and tell a story. Aside from our engagement photos last fall, she recently shot our wedding. The timeline leading up to the ceremony unfortunately ended up being a bit tight and hectic, and as a result there are some photos we didn't get that I wish we ha... Read more

  • Our experience with Melissa was sheer perfection. I can not speak more highly about her work or how she engaged with us. She is bubbly, witty, easy going and I just love her. Planning a US wedding from Australia should have been stressful but I was so relaxed with Melissa - and her organisation, time management and attention to detail was outstanding. We established an instant rapport with her which made taking photos easy and we had so much fun with her. I think she truly captured the essense of our wedding day, and it comes across in her photos she is all about love, family and friendship. As I bride I think at times you stress about things like bad weather etc and as fast as those thoughts came to my head Melissa released them and left me feeling like whatever happened on the day would have its own beauty and she would just roll with it. She is a true professional and jack of all trades. In the lead up to the wedding we did two mini sessions with her in the springtime and also ... Read more

  • Cutting right to it- I highly recommend hiring Melissa to photograph your milestones! We hired her to photograph our wedding (came highly recommended from a friend) and are SO pleased. The resulting photos, day-of photography experience, payment schedule, emails leading up to the event, and purchasing prints were all part of what I can only describe as a luxury experience. We saw her work and loved the exciting composition- gorgeous photos that happen to have happy newlyweds- and knew we needed to book her!  We got so much more than beautiful photos. Melissa went above and beyond and was prepared for anything- like helping me take my Spanx off in a park, noticing my foot was bleeding and supplying bandaids and shout wipes for all the days’ surprises, whisking us away to take couples’ photos when the time was right, making sure we ate, removing my veil, more bandaids, fixing my rogue hair, getting us an Uber to the venue, quickly telling us how to cut a wedding cake, and bein...

  • Melissa photographed our family of 15 including 5 boys ages 2 to 10. It was a day that rained on and off but she made the best of our location photographing us outside when the weather broke and inside while it rained. The photos turned out great. She went above and beyond when I was unsatisfied with a canvas print I ordered because the rainbow did not show up well. She had them reprinted and send to me within two days. I highly recommend Melissa!

    Thank you so much, Linda! It was a pleasure to work with you all!

  • Working with Melissa was incredible. We found her through our lovely wedding planner Nicole Mower - she was her photographer. We planned from afar but had the chance to have a drink with Melissa before our wedding - from the moment we met her, we knew she was THE ONE! Melissa captured each moment of our special day exactly as we would have wanted it captured. She is so calm and ultra organized. Our pictures have a casual feel (which is exactly what we want) while still capturing the beauty of our seacoast wedding. The photos came to us really fast, and the preview just days after the wedding. Even though we live across the country we can't wait for Melissa to capture all of our special moments. We cannot say enough great things about Melissa!

  • Just got our "teaser pictures" access and are so pleased with how everything turned out! Leading up to the day Melissa worked with us many times back and forth to ensure that we got the time frame and services that we wanted. She took the time to get to know our vibe as a couple and matched that very well on the wedding day. She worked well with our families and friends capturing all the important moments without any fussing. She even worked on her birthday for us! We will enjoy the memories she has captured for us as well as the encouraging words she shared with us for many years to come.
