"don't take my word for it..."

The best compliment I can ever receive is a review and a referral from a client. I spend one of the happiest days of life with my clients and that is not lost on me. I appreciate getting to know my clients - the more I understand what makes you tick the better I can capture who you truly are. That means a lot to me. Here are a few reviews from real clients. Thanks from the bottom of my heart!


Janelle + Patrick: Dexter and Gross Ile Wedding

Melanie made our wedding day such a joy! I don't know any other photographer who can make 8 children (ages 7yrs, 4yrs, 3yrs x3, 2yrs x2, 1yr) all sit down and smile for a camera without any crying or meltdowns. If she can handle a bunch of tired and hungry toddlers she can handle anything. She is efficient, professional and a very fun person to be around. Every photo was amazing. She so perfectly captured all of the moments on our big day. She even managed to make a gray rainy Michigan day look like the most beautiful and elegant backdrop. Her talent is worth twice what we paid. Just remember...... pictures last a lifetime and I am looking forward to looking at Melanie's pictures of my wedding for the rest of my lifetime.


Elaine + Tim: Detroit Wedding

Melanie is super talented, super lovely, and we feel extremely lucky that she was our photographer at our wedding. She was also kind enough to work with our budget, and went above and beyond to make sure we got great photos in an efficient amount of time. To say she was a good value is an understatement. 

Melanie has such an eye for composing the shot, and great ideas for posing and content so that you can just let go and relax and let her do her magic. We felt so comfortable with her and her assistant Deana, which makes for even better photos and enjoying your wedding that much more.

She's the kind of photographer who will fix details of your wedding that have nothing to do with the pictures, just because she's good people. Her whistle to get babies' attention is awe-inspiring, haha, seriously. She's just the best.


Claire + Mike: New Jersey Wedding

Melanie recently photographed our wedding day and we could not be happier with the pictures she took! Not only does she capture STUNNING pictures but she is amazing to work with. She had my enormous bridal party ordered and smiling, my crazy family organized for formal pictures, and my husband and I comfortable and excited. She took the time to get to know our parents and bridal party's names before coming. How professional. One thing I loved was when we were taking pictures, Melanie and her assistant would get so excited how the pictures were coming out it got everyone even more excited.

I HIGHLY recommend booking Melanie Reyes for your wedding day.

Things WILL go wrong on your wedding day and that's ok. But if you book Melanie, you can be sure that you will get 'out of this world' pictures of your special day that you can look at for the rest of your married life!
