  • Melissa took great care in making our day seamless & all about living into the moment. She was super prepared in the planning - making sure we were on board with ideas for where we could take photos, timing for her arrival and how to organize costume changes. She arrived early, provided amazing enthusiasm, love & focus and captured incredible shots. We are so glad to have worked with her!

  • Melissa with Whiskey and Champagne is a wonderful photographer. We hired her for our engagement photos which turned out stunningly, then again for our wedding. She's so good at capturing the moment and finding great spots so it looks like you're the only ones around. The style we asked for was absolutely delivered. Her eye gives those moments life... enabling us to relive those feelings again immediately. She went above and beyond with us, helping with things that she didn't have to help with. It felt like we were all on a team, and I loved that on such an important day. We will definitely hire her again and recommend anyone else who wants amazing moments captured, to reach out.

May wedded bliss continue to sprinkle upon you both for a lifetime and beyond.

  • Melissa was one of the first vendors we booked for our wine country wedding and she did not disappoint! Melissa was incredibly responsive, working with me from day one to co-create a timeline to ensure we captured all the important moments as well as our planner. Day of Melissa was direct, kind and a great energy to have with us. Our families can be a lot to wrangle and she effortlessly kept the order with a smile on her face. To our excitement she quickly turned around a sneak peak as well as all of our photos. They exceeded our expectations, captured so many candid moments and we'd love to work with her in the future!

  • Melissa is a total star. We are so pleased with the photographs from our wedding and the experience we had working with her. At our wedding she was always close at hand when we wanted a photo but never in the way when we wanted to enjoy ourselves. When we were working with her for photos she was creative, quick and kind. I recommend her without hesitation.

    Dear Craig and Robyn, From the moment I met you both, and then witnessed the incredible love shared between the two of you, I knew this was a match made to last forever and always. The depth of love which flows through your entire family and friends is beyond words, and I feel so fortunate to have captured the beauty of your exquisite day. Cheers to love and laughter!

  • We are so lucky we found Melissa to be our wedding photographer. She is super friendly, easygoing and has an infectious love for love! Both my husband and I are not big into posing for photos and Melissa made it easy for us, by just capturing the moments as they happened. Even our couples-wedding shoot felt natural and the results are outstanding. I can't recommend Melissa enough. We may have met as photographer and to-be bride & groom, but I feel like I also found a friend, who will be invited to all our special occasions to partake and capture the memorable moments!

    Dear Sohela, You are a true gem of a soul! Sharing your special day with you and Vilmos was one of my favorites to-date. It's evident how much you both are loved and cherished, and I adore the love you share for one another. It's true, I gained a friend and this is the joyful gift of doing what I love doing so much. Cheers to happily ever after!

Melissa is flexible, dependable, approachable and above all else talented. Her patience and easy going personality made our experience memorable. We just loved how comfortable she made us feel. From the start to the end, Melissa made everything easy and enjoyable. She was quick to respond to all my emails and had a quick turn around with delivering the photographs!

  • I am so impressed with Whiskey and Champagne Photography. I hired Melissa for my recent wedding and she delivered such beautiful photos that captured not only the moments but the essence of our relationship. I was astounded. She arrived right on time, was extremely organized and knew just how to get the perfect shot. She delivered great value and had our photos to us the next day. Do yourself a favor and cross this task off your list. Hire Melissa right away! I'm so fortunate to have received her immense talent.

  • We had a lovely experience with Melissa. Mine was a small wedding, and the lights of the day (noon in a hot and wet day of July in Florence) could have been a trial even for the most skilled photographer. My relatives do not speak English, nor my husband, and I didn't know Melissa personally before that day, although a dear friend whom I trust had recommeded her. She was a discrete presence, never intrusive, only kind and professional. The pictures were awsome, she understood my own inner self without knowing me. her ideas of the city in the background were original and effective. A fair

    Valentina! What a total honor it was to capture your beautiful Florentine wedding day. I absolutely adore you and Lorenzo and wish you both many, many years of wedded bliss.

  • Melissa was more than I could have hoped for as our photographer! Melissa was friendly and super natural. She didn’t get in the way and ask us to pose awkwardly. My husband isn’t thrilled about picture taking and she was able to get our pics done super quickly. She took lots of candid shots and made sure to capture all of my family and friends. On top of that, she was a lovely presence on such an important day. Even my guests commented on how friendly and sweet she was. And the pictures?! Breathtaking! She edited them super quickly and I’m obsessed! Everyone loves them. I’ve even had married friends say they were jealous their pictures weren’t like mine. Highly recommend Melissa! Trust me, you have no need to look any further.

    Nathalia! What can I say?! You and Ossama are a total dream couple, and I loved capturing your special day. Also, your families are so incredibly wonderful too. We had fun, non!? Wishing you both so much wedded bliss. Melissa

  • Best compliment was from my husband. He HATES getting his photo taken... after the wedding ceremony and we did our alone photos he told Melissa that she made it so easy and quick he would take MORE!! What?!! I’ve never been happier when I look at all the beautiful photos of our wedding. I am so grateful to have found Whisky & Champagne to capture every moment of our wedding day and events leading up.

    Kristen, Truly the wedding weekend of anyone's dreams! You and Porter are off-the-charts incredible, and the kindness and true love shared between you both as well as amongst your family and friends deserves to be applauded on a daily basis. Such an honor for us to capture your destination wedding in Tuscany - fairy tales do come true. ~Melissa

  • We had the pleasure of working with Melissa on several occasions, & she was incredible for each one. She took my engagement photos, & brought us to beautiful locations capturing gorgeous shots. She also took photos of my mother's wedding & my wedding brunch & really captured the essence of each event and those who attended. She's incredibly kind, creative, and able to blend seamlessly into any setting and dynamic to get the best photos. She'll put you at ease and make everyone feel comfortable, and ensures you get every shot you're looking for, and all the ones you never thought you needed. We hope to work with her again in the future!

    Thank you Elizabeth! You and Jamie (and all your family and friends) are dreams to work with and capture. Cheers to collecting memories!

  • “The photographs by Melissa of Whiskey and Champagne transcend quality and draw on the spirit of every subject she captures. Having her photograph many of our events that were social or corporate, she has documented the sincere enjoyment of our guests, the culinary talent and the beauty of our space. Melissa’s ability to quietly but effectively see a moment worth remembering and shoot it makes for an effortless feeling of our guests. Her ability to photograph detail without requiring a ton of staging helps keep your event flow and chefs happy! After contracting Melissa for many work events, I could think of no better person to capture my (now) husband and I’s special day at San Francisco City Hall. I am not one for the camera, where my husband is. She was able to give me the direction needed to match his photogenic nature without looking staged. Melissa was even able to softly direct my sassy family to achieve a breathtaking wedding portfolio! This project required more direct... Read more

    Austin! Every single time I look at your and Erik's wedding day photos, my heart explodes! Dream team! And now to photograph you as a family of four ... mind blown on the happiest level ever. We absolutely adore you and your amazing family. Cheers to living life fully! Melissa
