I have had the pleasure of working with Melanie twice, once during my wedding, and then again in a portrait session after the birth of my first child. Melanie is professional, warm, perceptive, and unobtrusive. And she is highly skilled at her craft; the images she creates are sublime. Melanie is really a story teller of sorts, in that she is able to capture and preserve not just images, but the meaning and context that surround them. Somehow, these subtle details come through, and distinguish her work from that of so many others. Finally, Melanie has excellent communication skills; she took the time to understand our preferences, and made sure that we were satisfied with the results.
