What Ashley and Nate had to say about their experience-

After struggling to find an affordable photographer with a phenomenal portfolio, I came across Kim with MELA Photo. After speaking with her about options and viewing her past work, I knew she would be perfect. Throughout the planning process she was responsive and helpful and thorough. When she arrived at our venue the day of our wedding she was very professional and even brought an apprentice shooter with her (extra photos!!!). She stuck with everything we wanted and followed the timeline great. We just got our photos back and I am blown away and crying tears of joy! There is no reason not to pick this very talented lady to capture those very important moments of your life :) THANK YOU KIM!!
