"I would give her six stars out of 5 if I could. Fantastic photographer, and great personality. Wife and I have had multiple shoots with her over a couple years, and she always delivers. Highly recommend!"

"This is my first of two reviews, as I haven't received all of my photos from Melissa yet;
as our wedding was only a couple weeks ago! I was very happy with Melissa on our wedding day!
She was very flexible; with our request for outdoor - winter - photos, our location (as we hadn't settled on an exact location, when we booked her, I appreciated her ability to be flexible and drive out past Leduc... from St. Albert), our request to only have her for 3 hours of formal photos; the list goes on. I was nervous about having an
outside vendor for our wedding, with the climate of a Covid-19 wedding; but Melissa was very respectful, and understanding of the added stress we were under that day, and she followed all protocols
to keep herself and us safe. I appreciated her attention to detail, her punctuality and professionalism.
My husband and his groomsmen love to goof around, and I was happy that she was laughing along
with them, and not getting frustrated. Even with the goofing around and organizing of family members,
we were able to get many photos done in our 3 hour period. Melissa voiced her concerns, about the weather and location, so we could come up with backup plans prior to the wedding. She was early for our requested time, ensured we all had our various accessories, and looked our best on our wedding day! Overall, Melissa had great communication, direction, and personality! We have only seen 1 sneak peak photo so far, but judging
from that one, I cannot wait to see how the rest turned out!"

"Melissa is absolutely amazing! I am so in love with the pictures she captured. She passionate
about her work and it truly shows! I will be booking with her again for sure never mind 5/5 it’s totally a 10/10 hands down. Can’t wait to book again soon!"
~ Misty Bruno - December 2020 ~
"Melissa was so patient and professional when shooting a mini session with my energetic young boys. I absolutely love the photos and she was so flexible with scheduling something that worked for my family. Thanks Melissa!"
~ Alison Pitcher - March 2020 ~
"We loved doing our engagement photos with Melissa. She kept us laughing the whole time and our pictures are beautiful. She was very professional and very quick to get the images back to us. I can’t wait for her to
photograph our wedding this summer. :)"
~ Lauren Elizabeth - February 2020 ~
"Best photographer ever, hands down! Melissa makes you feel at home in front of the camera - I could literally shoot with her all day. She is professional, easy to get a hold of and delivers amazing photos every time. I am so glad we chose her to be our wedding photographer, and can't wait for any future picture needs so we can hire her again!"
~ Ashley Lynn - February 2020 ~
"Melissa was excellent, she took our family pictures for us. My 7 year old son wasn’t looking forward to it but after meeting Melissa he didn’t want the session to stop. She is very friendly and she even got our dog to pose for the pictures. Our pictures turned out amazing and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat."
~ Jessica Barr - September 2019 ~
"She is amazing!!! We could not have had a better photographer. It rained all day and she was so easy going with the bad weather. we all got drenched taking photos and all of them turned out amazingly! I never thought we would have so many stunning photos from such a gross rainy day!! I would recommend Melissa to everyone!"
~ Sabrina Schuur - September 2019 ~
"Melissa did a photo shoot in our home with our cat and dog. She was so kind and helpful with them, as they
weren’t completely cooperative with the outfits I put them in. So happy with how the photos turned out
and made them into a calendar for Christmas. Adorable!"
~ Leanne McCabe - August 2019 ~
"I can't recommend Melissa enough! We started with her taking our engagement photos, which she made into a
painless process. The photos were beautiful! All thanks to her great ideas and suggestions. We knew we had to
have her do our wedding photos! She was organized and knew what details she needed from us before-hand
to make the day go smoothly. Day of, Mel was on time and ready to go. She captured every moment for us,
and even had a finished photo for us before the day was done!"
~ Adam Berezanski - July 2019 ~
"Melissa is a very kind and genuine person!
She took our engagement photos and they turned out beautiful. Sometimes it can be awkward taking photos, but she makes it very enjoyable and it’s more like hanging out with a friend.
She will also be photographing our wedding, and I can’t wait! She is very helpful with helping me figure out my wedding time line, and answering any other wedding related questions I may have.
I highly recommend her!"
~ Karisa Murray - July 2019 ~
We don’t have enough words to describe how fantastic, professional, creative, and personable Melissa is. From our first meeting we knew we wanted her to be the one to do our engagement and wedding photography, and she exceeded every single one of our expectations of what a photographer can be and do. She went above and beyond to help with any questions we had leading up to the day, and she made everything go so smoothly. We would highly highly recommend Melissa to anyone looking for a photographer for any occasion!"
~ Ashley + Kyle Davidson - May 2019 ~
"We had a blast taking our engagement photos with Melissa - cant wait for our summer wedding!!"
~ Alexandra Schultz - March 2019 ~
"Melissa is extremely easy to work with, both in setting up the shoot, the day of, and when she delivered the images.
She is very quick to respond over text and email, and provided our photos way ahead of schedule. In person,
Melissa is really kind, friendly, knowledgeable, and professional! Can’t wait for our wedding in October!!!!!
10/10 recommend Melissa!
~ Brittany Osmak - February 2019 ~
"Melissa is the most amazing human and brilliant photographer! She is so bubbly, relaxed and extremely kind, she makes it easy to be in a room with her. Melissa took our engagement photos and wedding day photos, she is very invested in each photo she takes and you can see that in the results. If you are looking for a photographer and everything in between, then Melissa is most definitely for you! Melissa was there for us during our best and worst times, and she really has become a friend and we can’t say enough about her as a person and as a photographer. Thank you so so much for everything you did for us and the lovely photos (and hopefully more to come soon), we appreciate everything!"
~ Stephanie Fochler - October 2018 ~
"Melissa did a great job at our wedding. she spent all day with us and was very thorough and its VERY obvious she loves what she does and takes it very seriously :) can't wait to see all our photos from our special day!"
~ Brittany Abbott - September 2018 ~
"Melissa was very professional and super accommodating for whatever ideas we had. She’s so easy to deal with and felt like we had known her for years after only 5 minutes of meeting her! She’s super friendly and has some great ideas!
She was very quick with giving us some sneak peaks which were beautiful! We cannot wait to see the rest!
We loved every minute of dealing with her"
~ Dana + Zach Fisher - July 2018 ~
Our wedding was very small but very intimate. We didn’t want the big wedding hoopla captured in pictures. We just wanted someone to capture our joy as we said “I do”. And Melissa did just that. We LOVE our pictures and what they represent. We would recommend Melissa in a heart beat!"
~ Manuela Brosseau - July 2018 ~
"I don't have enough wonderful things to say about Melissa. She did such a fabulous job on our wedding picgtures. Not only is she very talented she was so easy to work with and her outgoing personality makes the stress of pictures so easy. I don't have enough good things to say about her. You won't regret booking with her if you do."
~ Amanda Kerbes - October 2017 ~
"Melissa has done my baby girl's photos from newborn to 1 year, not only is she amazingly talented she has also been professional and accommodating to all circumstances. Aubryn's six month shoot consisted of crying about 95% of the time, but she still managed to capture photos that were just perfect. For her one year shoot she had everything set up perfect, and made my memories everything and more. Not only is she patient and takes care of her clients, she goes above and beyond to get the photos you want. I am beyond excited for our family photos at Elk Island, and am so thankful that she is willing to drive out of her way to make them perfect. No doubt the photographer I will book for any occasion, and recommend to everyone. She is reasonably priced, and quick to book you in when you need it. Even when you have to reschedule 4 times. Thanks for being so amazing, and for helping me have memories for a lifetime."
~ Rachel Diediw - August 2017 ~

~ Alliyah samuel - April 2017 ~
"Melissa and I did a boudoir shoot ( my first ever ), I wasn't sure really what to expect or how to feel especially because I was a little nervous but when I went in the room she made me feel very comfortable and confident with my body! She made it a very fun experience while she was still professional. I'm am absolutely in love with all of my photos that she took and would highly recommend Melissa to anyone and will 100% get more photos done by her for anything"

"Melissa was fantastic for my maternity photos and awesome for our newborn photos with my
Son. She knew exactly how to calm him down, get him to staying sleeping for photos; I even learned a few tricks from her. Got me my photos when she said she would and I like how she kept me updated!"

"I would highly recommend Melissa Michelle Photography. She took cake smash pictures for my son's first birthday and did an amazing job. He was sick and grumpy that day but you would never know by looking at the photos. Melissa was fantastic with my son and was able to get some wonderful shots. She has a great eye for details and has definitely picked the right career. I was very impressed with Melissa, from start to finish, including how quickly she was able to edit and get the pictures back to us. We look forward to working with Melissa again in the future."
