classic wedding photography - CT


The second I sat down with Melanie I knew we were going to work with her. Melanie’s personality alone was enough to seal the deal. She is the kindest, most caring person I have ever met. Fortunately for us, she is not only a wonderful person but she is also a passionate photographer. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Melanie on a couple of surprises for my husband including our engagement photos and a boudoir session and she also took our wedding photos. We took our engagement photos at Fenway Park and Boston Public Garden and Melanie went above and beyond to make sure we got every shot we wanted – even though it felt like it was 150 degrees out. Whenever I’ve worked with Melanie, you can just feel her excitement and love for what she does. I wish I could describe how much I love the work she’s done for us but I can’t so I will let the photos speak for themselves. I honestly wouldn’t trust anyone else with capturing such precious memories. Melanie, thank you so much for putting so much love into your work. We will cherish them forever.

Melanie was amazing all the way through the process! We planned out wedding in New Haven CT from Cincinnati OH, she was super flexible with meetings when we were in town and made us feel relaxed as soon as we met her. We got married in Lighthouse point park and she got so many pictures in so many settings it was unbelievable! She hired a fabulous second photographer and made sure we had shots of everything. My favorite thing is that it rained on my wedding day (go figure) so she made sure that every time there was a break, or the sun peaked out, she would get us so you would have no idea! Also my dress was dirty from the sand and she did a phenomenal job of making it flawless in the pictures! Super sweet, reliable, stays extra hours if requested, I cannot say enough amazing things Melanie!

Melanie did such an incredible job capturing our rainy day wedding! She was present and professional throughout our whole wedding process. Her creativity, enthusiasm, and passion helped make our day truly memorable. Our pictures are beyond stunning and we’re so thankful we got to work with and become friends with Melanie along the way! We would absolute recommend her to anyone in search of a photographer!

Melanie was nothing but amazing on my wedding day. She made me and my husband feel so comfortable around her, and really helped to capture all the amazing moments on our special day. We especially appreciated her taking the time to know about us, how we met, our likes and dislikes, but also giving us space to mingle with guests at the wedding and not holding us up all night. It was a perfect balance, and I’m extremely happy of the choice we made with her as our wedding photographer. I’d recommend her to all my family and friends!!!

Melanie’s passion for photography (weddings, especially) is clear from the moment you meet her! She allowed up to pick a location for our engagement photos and was willing to travel a little ways and spend her day with us. We had a blast and the photos came out amazing! Some of the photos were even published by a wedding blog (after Melanie asked our permission to submit them for consideration)! She goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are happy!!

Melanie was my first choice for wedding photographer and I could have not been more pleased. She was available to me at ANY time with questions and flexible with changes I had to make last minute. The day of she was able to keep the flow going and the pictures didn’t feel like a chore (and I hate taking pictures!). She stuck to my timeline and my pictures were gorgeous. We now use her for all our family pictures and will continue to use her as our family grows! She would be a great choice for any of your picture needs!

I am so grateful that we chose Moments by Melanie. Not only did she take the time to ask us what we were looking for in our photos, she went above and beyond what we were hoping for. Everyone warned me that my wedding day would go by too fast. Thankfully, I am able to relive all of the happiness and love that took place every time I look at my photos, because she captured even the smallest details and emotions in her photography. I recommend Melanie to absolutely everybody I know who is getting married!

I had so much fun doing a boudoir shoot for my husband for our anniversary. Melanie made me feel so comfortable, she knew just the right poses to shoot that made me feel beautiful. She was as excited as I was and made the day such a special one for me and an experience I will never forget. My husband absolutely loved the pictures!! I would recommend Moments by Melanie for any occasion. She is an amazing person and puts so much heart into each experience. You will cherish her photographs forever!!

I’ll get right to it – Go with Moments by Melanie, you won’t be disappointed. On the contrary, you will cherish every picture from every event that you have photos taken by Melanie. Melanie has captured so many of our most cherished life events and I and so thankful to know that we will always have such great professional photos to look back on that perfectly captured these beloved moments to a T. Melanie, thank you for always going to the extra mile to make sure everything is perfect. Your pictures are in books and on the walls all around our home.

Melanie has captured some of the most memorable moments of my life – from our engagement pictures six years ago to our most recent combined winter/maternity shoot. There is no one that I would trust more with these special occasions than Melanie. She is professional, creative, and positive throughout the entire experience, from booking to picture day to editing to delivering the photos. I highly recommend choosing Moments by Melanie for your special occasions too!

Melanie made every moment of our engagement and wedding photography special. She went above and beyond to ensure that all of my requests were made, even helping to recreate some photos from Pinterest with her own style and our wants! Melanie is absolutely wonderful to work with, reasonably priced, accommodating, and provides beautiful photographs that we are excited to gift and display for many years to come. Her attention to detail and to her clients as couples and individuals truly makes an impact on her work. We have been recommending Melanie to everyone we know and will continue to do so in the future!

A couple of years ago one of my high school friends got married and I loved her photos on Facebook. Fast forward to 2015 as my fiance and I were looking for a wedding photographer I remembered Melanie’s photos of my friend. I spoke with my friend and she highly recommended Melanie. We met with Melanie and clicked instantly. She helped us plan a beautiful engagement session and our wedding. The entire day went perfectly and Melanie captured every moment. My husband said to me as we were looking through the gallery, “these photos are postcard perfect!” I would have to agree with him and love that we will have these photos to always remember the day.

We loved working with Melanie, she shot our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn’t be happier with how they came out. She was responsive, friendly, quick to offer ideas if needed and very flexible when it came to our own requests. Thank you Melanie!

Melanie was great! She was attentive, helpful, and accommodating from start to finish, and beyond. We couldn’t be any happier with our experience or pictures.

Such a great photographer and person! Melanie makes the entire process of any photo shoot so much fun. She is personable, funny, and creative. She instantly makes you feel comfortable and like you have known each other for years. I can happily say that we gained more than a great photographer in Melanie. She is now a family friend that we look forward to sharing all of our milestones with.

Melanie has taken our family photos three different times. All three times she captured the personalities of our children and family with the photos. She is very professional and easy to work with.

Melanie did our engagement and wedding pictures, and we could not have been more happy with them. More than that, though, Melanie made the experience wonderful with her kindness and professionalism. She is so invested in her work, and I felt incredibly comfortable with her. We did not look at any other photographers because we knew right away who we wanted to work with.

I never get tired of viewing my daughter’s amazing talent of capturing special moments of life’s most special milestones. Her heart and passion for creating unforgettable memories seems to have no bounds. Her work ethic, her expert knowledge of her tools, her eye for detail, and her creativity all combine to produce photographic memories beyond compare.

I enjoyed every minute of the time spent with Melanie. She is such a great person and is a tremendous photographer. She has done my engagement, wedding, and trash the dress photos, and all have come out fantastic. If I could give her a sixth star I would because she is that much fun.

Melanie is quite the amazing photographer. She has done all my pictures for years now and I am so happy with all her work. Upbeat, friendly and professional, this photographer is my number one choice! Knowing that most people have a hard time feeling relaxed and comfortable in pictures, Melanie’s aura sets her clients at ease with her bubbly personality. Her work is top notch!!!!!

We’ve been working with Melanie for our family pictures every year for the past 5 years. Each time is better than the last! She is amazing with our children and always captures such beautiful shots. Highly recommend her, you will not be sorry!

I’m in the process of working with her for my wedding and she’s making everything so stress free an amazing! The last thing you want while planning a wedding is added worry and stress and Melanie is making everything more fun knowing that I can put my full trust in her. Her work is amazing!

Melanie is wonderful! She is so accommodating and always available to answer any questions at any time. She did my engagement photos and wedding and they all came out beautiful!! Highly recommend!
