Love, love, love!!! Our engagement and wedding photos were perfect! Melissa capture every moment that we will cherish for years to come! She was so easy to work with leading up to the big day and so great on the day of the wedding. Everything was so organized. We will be using M.A.K for all of our photo needs!

We have only done our engagement photos so far. However, our wedding date is 6 months away and I could not be more confident in MAK Photography to deliver beautiful photos of our big day. Melissa put my fiancé and I at ease during the engagement photo shoot, which could not have been easy as we were both extremely nervous. She listened to exactly what we wanted and our photos turned out better than we could have ever hoped for. I am super excited to get started on the wedding photos!

MAK Photography did an amazing job with the photos at my wedding. Their editing makes the photos pop, and by taking photographs in the RAW format they are able to capture even more details. They were very professional in appearance, and with each picture they took, yet they were also very personable (able to interact with the guests). The pictures were ready for viewing two weeks after the wedding and my CD was sent to me shortly there after. A great experience that I would highly recommend.

I was so lucky to have M.A.K. photography at my wedding! They were so fun to work with and made the big day that more special! Thank you for loving what you do! It shows in your work!

I'm so glad that I went with M.A.K. Photography for my wedding.   Melissa and Aubrey took stunning photographs without being intrusive and were gladly willing to work with my requests. On the day of the wedding, they were completely independent while also guiding me through certain parts of the process. Melissa has a keen eye for unique photography that made the final product look truly extraordinary. Thank you so much!

When I first met with Melissa, I immediately knew I had found our wedding photographer. She was very passionate our photography and it came across in everything she showed us. She took our engagement photos last fall and we have received so many compliments from our family and friends. I can't wait to work with her on our wedding this summer!

I would recommend M.A.K. Photography to anyone who is looking for their engagement or wedding sessions done perfectly and beautifully. Melissa was a very flexible person while planning everything and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our wedding day ended up being very rainy, but the shots that she got before, during, and after were so beautiful that it made the day so much better. She also works very well with animals, our dog was in our engagement session :-)

We had the pleasure to work with Melissa at M.A.K. Photography for our Engagement photos. It was an all around great experience, she listened to what my fiancé and I had in mind for some photos. We also had the shoot on a cloudy day with virtually no sun and she make it work. I can say our photos look natural and that we have had many compliments on the quality and just how natural everything looks. Thanks again Melissa we look forward to working with you in June!

Melissa was so good with everyone and so professional - when we had ideas for a picture she always listened to us. But then she had the talent to make our ideas even better. I loved every picture she took. Very very talented photographer :)
