Courtney and Kenny | Engagement and Wedding

We had such an excellent experience shooting with Melissa! Both our engagement and wedding photos turned out amazing! She made us feel very relaxed during both our photo shoots, which allowed us to appear much less awkward and more natural in our photos. We had large families with many children to accommodate during our wedding photos, and Melissa maintained organization while providing us the most amazing keepsakes! Definitely looking forward to working with her in the future!

Melissa is amazing!!! We first worked with her for our eldest's newborn shoot, and she has such a warm and calming presence. Four years later, and we booked her for our second's newborn shoot. Despite baby being being awake during the whole session, Melissa was able to capture some lovely natural moments. She absolutely made the most of it! She was also wonderful with our eldest, who could have easily become bored and cranky. So happy to have such precious memories captured. I would recommend Melissa's services to anyone!

Melissa was truly wonderful to work with every time, which is why we returned to her for 2 newborn shoots and a VERY important family shoot, done with taste and love at a very difficult time for our family. She has incredible attention to detail and is wonderful with kids and babies in addition to being amazing to deal with when planning and arranging things for the shoots. I recently recommended her to a friend who was equally happy with her experience and impressed with Melissa’s work.

Rioux Family | Family sessions

Melissa has been our family photographer since our son was born 2 years ago (4 full sessions, and 2 mini sessions), and she is fabulous. Every single time, we have been thrilled with the photos. She has captured so many special moments of our family! My only regret is that I didn't find her sooner, for my maternity photos too!

"Melissa has been our family photographer and has done our newborn sessions for both our girls. I can't say enough great things about her... She is professional, so talented, kind and a true artist. She captures the most amazing moments. Effortlessly. Our family is so lucky to have found her!"

Katie and Dan Hoffmann | Wedding, engagement and lifestyle sessions

"When searching for a wedding photographer 2 years ago, a friend of mine directed me to Mel’s website. I immediately fell in love with her style. I knew she was the one I wanted to capture our special day. I sent an email to her to set up a meet and greet. From our first meeting I knew she was a fantastic photographer. We exchanged photo ideas, discussed recommendations on which locations would be best and so on. When I look back on our wedding photos, I’m taken right back to the exact moment it happened. Mel captured our day exactly how we both pictured it. We couldn’t be happier with her work. We have recently had a ‘life style’ session which was also a really great experience. We will definitely be back again soon."

"Ok so how to describe the experience I've had with Melissa?!? AMAZING! she is patient and energetic and always willing to do unique shots if its suggested! She is fast and understanding of limitations of being in a wedding dress or locations when taking photos and also reads couples really well to make your photo shoot perfect for you and your expectations! Love her and would refer her a million times over!!"

Kelsey and Chris | Engagement and Wedding

Melissa was our wedding photographer and I cannot even describe how wonderful a job she did! We had an engagement session as well and we knew from that moment that we chose an exceptional photographer. Melissa herself is extremely pleasant and is great with people- she was able to get everybody laughing and all the kids smiling! The pictures turned out beautifully as well, everybody loves them and heavily compliments them. I cannot recommend her enough, she is an absolute delight!

Melissa, Brian and Reeve | Wedding, maternity and family

Melissa has been "our" photographer for many years! From our engagement, to wedding, to maternity, and now family photos, we can't imagine anyone else being able to capture our family in such a personal way. Melissa is friendly, professional, creative, and open to ensuring her photos reflect the unique traits of each individual family. We have had so many compliments on Melissa's photos, and there are just too many good ones to choose from when deciding which ones to hang up in our home! We will continue using her for our family photo shoots, despite moving 5 hours away! She is definitely worth it :)

"Melissa has been our go to photographer since 2009. She has captured every important event in our life thus far - each photo reminding us of how we felt that day. From our engagement photos to our recent birthday cake smash for our one year old, MJG has provided professional and superior service. We will continue to go to Melissa for our future photos, and always recommend her exceptional work to others. Thanks Mel!"

"Working with Melissa was wonderful. She graciously incorporated our ideas into the session, and we adore the results. With her skills and patience she managed to coax a number of fabulous expressions out of our stoic 6 month old. We, as well as our family and friends, are enjoying these lovely images and will for years to come."

Jessica and Alphanso | Engagement, Wedding

Working with Melissa was a pleasure. She gave us everything we wanted on our wedding day! She was able to capture all the special moments without being too intrusive, it felt like we just had an extra family member hanging out with us all day. We had a winter wedding, so we braved the cold and had outdoor pictures and they turned out beautifully . Melissa has a great ability to capture the best of elements to produce quality photos. I highly recommend her services, well worth it!
