I will try to make this short and sweet, as I could easily write a lengthy glowing review about Melissa Arlena Photography!
I met Melissa as a fellow vendor in the wedding industry in my area [and we just so happen to be neighbors!]. I always loved her photography work for weddings and engagements. She has a very distinct soft and elegant style to her photography, yet can fit my slightly edgy style with her beautiful choice of background landscape compositions with a beautifully designed balance of color, line, contrast, and all the other design elements that are so clearly evident in her photographs. I also appreciate the attention to the details of what makes every wedding so unique: the shoes, the rings, the flowers, the table decor. So, when it came time to book my own wedding photographer, Melissa was an obvious first pick! I had a very strange request of a destination wedding all the way in Disney World, Orlando, Florida and she didn’t hesitate at the venture!
Personality: She has a great sense of humor and is very easy to get along with and definitely will make you feel comfortable in front of the camera! She even got my groom, who is sometimes ‘too cool’ to pose for pictures, to strike some very model-like poses for some gorgeous wedding photos!
Flexibility: Melissa was very flexible for the day-of, making sure to be wherever we needed her to be [running all across Disney property to get the many shots of all of our wedding party! Of course, flexible in being able to travel to my destination wedding!
Quality/Hard work: From the packaging of our wedding disk, the detailed descriptions of our blog post, the quick turn around time of our photos, to the hard work of capturing every detail on our wedding day, Melissa is the best! On the day of our wedding, she somehow seemed to be everywhere we needed her to be, getting all the important shots -- while working efficiently. The wedding info sheet you provide her before your wedding is followed to a ‘T’. She was even able to help me to understand the wedding day itinerary, including helping me to understand when I needed to be ready in my gown and when to have my bridesmaids and groomsmen ready for photos. She even worked very diligently to get my dress up into a very tall tree to get ‘the shot’. During our bride/groom post-ceremony shots, she always kept her eyes open for any awesome backdrops, cool lighting opportunities and fun props to take photos with -- which made for some very unique wedding photos! She was very organized and efficient with our family photos, ready with a list of all the required shots and was quickly able to get our large group to get together for all photos.
We had our photos available for viewing on her Facebook page it seemed almost immediately by the time we were back from our destination wedding. I follow her on her Facebook page and blog and know that she is very organized in the times she posts her weddings in order and have seen her dedication to a timely turn-around with posting the weddings.
I absolutely, very highly recommend Melissa Arlena Photography to any brides that feel her style compliments their wedding vision. Her image quality is timeless and elegant, yet still modern and fun. Her hard work and dedication to her clients as a photographer, attention-to-detail and personality make her an all around amazing photographer.
