When A Wedding Planner Is a Bride and Chooses the Best

As a Certified Wedding Professional and owner of my own wedding planning company in Santa Barbara, CA, I found myself on the other side of the coin planning my own destination secret elopement. Melanie exceeded my expectations. She was prompt to return all correspondence, had a flexible deposit and fee schedule, and was pure joy to work with day of the wedding. She genuinely loves what she does and it shows! She worked quickly, stealthly, got all the required images we needed and then made sure she told the story and fun of our day with lots of fun candids on a walking photo shoot we did downtown Santa Fe. We are so pleased with all our images and I cannot recommend her enough for any wedding couple. She is a dream wedding photographer on all points and you simply won't find a better one - or one of the value she offers- than Melanie.

Melanie was fantastic. From the first time we had coffee together I knew she was going to be great. She's easy to get a long with and everyone feels comfortable around her. We had a lot of kids around and she worked great with them and everyone else. I did all the decorations my self and we had a beautiful venue that I wanted to make sure was captured and she did it beautifully. We have been extremely happy with our photos. I'm so glad we went with Melanie!! She asked us to write a list of photos that we wanted so we didn't forget any. This is something I didn't do and thought we'd get them all. My advice to any bride is to make that list! It was my own fault I didn't and there are a few photos I wish I had. Melanie would of did any photo we wanted. Thank you Melanie for capturing our day just like we wanted!!

My husband Kevin and I were so pleased with our experience working with Melanie. Kevin and I live in Chicago, and we were able to talk to Melanie on the phone and get a sense of her style and warmth through her website and through our conversation. We met her the first time about 45 minutes before our ceremony, and she made us feel comfortable. What drew me to Melanie initially was her journalistic style--the pictures on her website tell the story of the person in the moment, and given that our ceremony would be so small, that's what I wanted. Someone who would beautifully capture the gorgeous light of New Mexico and love of my family. Most of the ceremony was a blur to me, as much as I tried to stay in the moment, and it was so poignant to see the ceremony in the photographs as an observer. I was especially touched by the photos of my parents the first time they saw me decked out in my dress and flower crown--I couldn't help but cry! So much love and awe there that in my anxiety and excitement, I wasn't noticing. Our ceremony was intimate, only 14 people in attendance in all, and Melanie became a member of our family. Melanie was flexible with our schedule too--when we wanted an extra half hour, she obliged, and stayed to capture Kevin and I putting the finishing touches on dinner. Melanie exceeded our expectations. Thank you Melanie for being part of our ceremony, and we are so grateful to have your photography as part of our lives forever!
