What our clients are saying:
"I found Melissa through Instagram, during what seemed an endless search for the right photographer for my wedding. Her portfolio had everything I was looking for: candid expressions, natural poses, and minimal editing. Our engagement pictures included our dog in a big public space—and Melissa took it all in with ease. She understood our nervousness at being photographed for the first time and provided great direction to keep us on track. Our destination-elopement came together beautifully with her insights. Battling ever-fluctuating mountain showers, she was able to perfectly encapsulate our perfect day. I could not have asked for a better photographer!" - Jessica and Derek Smiley
"Melissa Claire is a rockstar! We were absolutely blown away by our wedding photos. It was the best investment we made for our wedding. Melissa and her husband are top notch photographers. They have an incredible eye for amazing photos, and are also extremely friendly, attentive, and organized in the face of wedding day chaos. If you want the most memorable photos that you, your family, and friends can treasure for a lifetime, she is your photographer. Melissa worked with us as we put together our fabulous wedding album and even personally delivered to our house! I would not change ONE thing about our experience with Melissa Claire!" - Sara and Van Winter
"Melissa is the absolute best! I cannot believe I found my dream photographer in real life. We had so much fun shooting our engagement session with Melissa, she made us feel super comfortable and gave amazing direction. By the end of the shoot I felt like a natural, and forgot she was even there, we had a great time. She has some amazing ideas and advice, and is super responsive. When we got our engagement photos, I was so happy they exceeded my expectations! We looked like supermodels, but more importantly we looked happy! The day of my wedding was such a whirlwind and of course we (the bridal party) were late getting the the venue. Melissa still made sure we got all of the shots we wanted, and did an amazing job keeping us on schedule! I will be forever grateful to her and Nick for their work. My photos absolutely captured the emotion and mood of the day perfectly. By far the best money I spent for my wedding. Thank you Melissa!" - Kim and Cole Robertson
"Could not recommend Melissa and her husband Nick enough! They are very LGBT+ supportive and were down for our non traditional wedding plans - including a unity pizza ceremony! Melissa has many different levels of wedding coverage that would work for different price ranges, and her photos are absolutely amazing. I know I will cherish these perfect representations of my wedding day forever. Thank you Melissa!" - Mandy and Kristin Neff
