Testimonials

“We heard about Melissa from our relative who highly recommended her services. After viewing Melissa’s online gallery and meeting with her in person we knew we had to book her for our wedding! Not only did she provide us with an incredibly detailed take home package full of fun wedding themed guidelines/suggestions but she also included a questionnaire that highlighted our engagement story and allowed us to share details about ourselves for our wedding guests to read on our photo blog page. We both felt so comfortable working with Melissa and her husband as a second photographer. We got all of the shots we wanted and so many candid shots that we will truly cherish forever. Melissa was so helpful on the day of with all of her professional guidance in directing us on how to pose, where to capture the best lighting/background, and overall camera angles etc. We are so happy that we were able to work with Melissa and her husband as they made the day so much more enjoyable with their expertise and presence. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is in search for a photographer who goes above and beyond to make your photos more than you could ever imagine!” – Jessica H.

“We loved every minute of the work. Super professional and will recommend them to anyone who asks about a photographer.” – Amy

“My husband and I loved working with Melissa and her husband Brad. Melissa quickly responded to my emails, she answered all of my questions, her prices are affordable and, of course, the product received is outstanding. Melissa followed up with me when necessary to make sure I hadn’t forgotten anything. She was very flexible with her time even while raising a family. I had changed the date of my wedding, well in advance, but she was very willing to work with me. Again, I asked a billion questions and not once did she make me feel like I was intruding or being a bridezilla! And of course, my husband and I love our pictures. Not only did they turn out wonderful, she sent them to us in a gorgeous box and very cute USB drive and included several other small gifts. You can tell she puts a lot of thought into what she does and enjoys it as well. ” – Jessica W.

“We had so much fun working with Melissa, and her husband Brad. They kept us laughing. Our pictures were PERFECT!! They did our wedding and engagement photos. We couldn’t of picked better photographers. We have 2 girls and they kept them entertained while we were taking pictures. When we got our wedding photos from Melissa she made up a little gift box for them. Our package that we chose had everything in it plus a little extra. She really shows how much she cares. We were so happy with her and Brad! They are AWESOME! ” – Brittany W.

“This couple is fantastic! We were so lucky to have them do both our engagement and wedding photos. They are extremely well priced and let you customize packages to your needs.

“Melissa and Brad we’re absolutely wonderful! Their photographs were gorgeous, vivid, artistic and genuine which is a difficult combination. They got to know us quickly and they fit in great with our families which made it possible for them to really capture all of the special moments of our day. Having two great photographers meant we received different perspectives of the big events throughout the day which helped tell a complete story. We will treasure our memories they beautifully froze in time for many years to come. ” – Renée

“Melissa did a wonderful job taking my son’s senior pictures. She came to the location of our choice and had absolutely no input from me on what I wanted. I left all of the creativity to her and she did an awesome job getting my teenage son to pose, smile, and look relaxed. There were so many good pictures, I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites! She was professional, friendly, and very reasonably priced. I will definitely use Melissa again in the future.”- Angie

“Melissa was great to work with. She accommodated our request for a photo shoot at a state park and braved the rain for over an hour while we hiked and posed. I was a bit concerned due to the weather, but the pictures we took that day turned out marvelously. I am so glad we had beautiful photos to send to our family and friends for the holidays. They are my favorites of all time! Melissa is also very affordable. We loved our experience with her.” – Stephanie

“She is amazing! Has always captured just what I dream up and then some. Has a true passion for her work and it clearly shows!!” – Mona

“Our family had such a good time with our photo session. Melissa was professional and flexible, allowing us to bring our dog to be in some of the photos and letting us try different poses. The whole experience felt relaxed and comfortable. After I chose the pictures I wanted, I received them within a week. We will definitely use Melissa Briles Photography again!” – Lori
