“Melissa was an absolute dream to work with. My husband and I knew the moment we met her for our initial meeting that she was the photographer for us. Her photojournalistic/artistic style, coupled with just about the sweetest personality ever, made her the only choice for us. After our engagement photo session with her and the fabulous photos that resulted we knew we had made the right choice. However we could have never anticipated how truly beautiful our wedding photos would be. Melissa has an unbelievable knack for capturing raw emotion that we will forever be grateful to her for. Our wedding photos truly tell the story of our love for each other, as well as the wonderful day that our wedding day turned out to be. She has also been a delight to work with after the wedding in pulling together our proofs, prints and album. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. She ROCKS!”

“Hi Missy – These photos are AMAZING!!!!! You are so talented. I can’t even express in words how delighted and impressed I am with our wedding photos. And so many people who have seen the pictures loved them as well and wanted your contact information, so I referred them to your main website. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”

Sonoko Jacobson

“I’m happy to have the opportunity to brag about Melissa and her work!  To sum it up, Melissa was nothing short of fabulous.  She has the brilliant ability to grasp the essence of the moment through the capturing of unexpected details and emotions with great precision and
care.  It was such a treat when Melissa presented the photos from our wedding, such a thoughtful and engaging collection which totally encapsulates our love for our family, friends
and eachother.   To top it off, her friendly and sincere demeanor was extremely helpful for me since I am not one to naturally gravitate towards the lens.  I spent the day feeling comfortable and confident in Melissa’s ability to capture the best of our event.  As you might have already
guessed, I highly recommend Melissa and her work, you definitely won’t be disappointed!”

“Missy captured our wedding exactly how I imagined from day one.  She mixed both her artistic eye for great photography with our requests for specific pictures.  She is friendly and relaxed and helped make our wedding day comfortable.  It was like I had a friend capturing everyspecial moment of our day.  She respected my mother’s wishes to photograph traditional wedding photos of the family, as well as mine and my husband’s desire to have fun, relaxed photos.  I would recommend Missy to anyone looking for a photographer for their special day!  Thank you Missy!”

“From the moment my husband, Jeff, and I met Melissa there was a sort of instant ease and chemistry.  She is so easy to get along with and made our engagement session seem effortless.  She was always on time and extremely consistant with communication (… planning a long distance wedding meant we communicated ALOT).  Within a couple of weeks we already had our engagement pictures back and they were gorgeous, she exceeded every expectation.  When it came time for our wedding Jeff and I knew what we were getting into and I didn’t worry once about Missy getting the pictures we wanted, and trust me, on your big day one less thing to stress about means the world.  Melissa and her assistant worked seamlessly to get every possible photo and they were a huge hit with our rather large wedding party (22 people).  We absolutely adore Melissa and she gave us the best possible gift- Gorgeous photos to remember the biggest and best day of our lives.  Words do not seem to say thank you enough Melissa- when we decide to have an addition to the Poirier clan you’ll be right there to snap his/her first shots!!!”

Jessica Poirier

“We are so grateful that we chose Melissa to capture our special day on film!  She has a calm and easy going manner that was most welcome during the chaotic excitement of the day.  She put in a tireless effort and didn’t hesitate to stay later for us when we asked for additional photos.  The end result was amazing!  We absolutely love our pictures and have received sincere compliments from everyone who sees them.”

“Melissa takes amazing photographs as you can see from her website. Every single one of our wedding pictures could have been on the site. Our wedding ran late (as they all do) and Melissa stepped in and helped pull everything together. She was a constant help to keep me calm and focused on the fact that this was my wedding day. She was incredibly professional, fun, and even stayed late because we had not done all of the wedding ‘things’ yet.  I will always use her for photography. She also did our engagements and my immediate family photos as well. Everything was just as she said it would be…It was the best money I spent on the wedding.”

We are absolutely in love with all the pictures – thank you! thank you!  You did such an amazing job capturing every moment and the feeling of the day.  It is going to be so hard to pick our favorites for the albums and thank you cards because they are all so PERFECT!!

Thank you again for everything.

All the best,

I really cannot express how amazing your photos are; I have looked at them over and over and am so incredibly excited to have them.  The best part, my skeptic fiance also loves them and is really glad that we decided to have them done…yay!!!  I want to thank you again for meeting us on an early Monday morning to do the shoot, then working like crazy to get the photos to us in a week!  A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!  We are so excited about our wedding and are very confident that we have the greatest photographer ever :)…
“Happy New Year, Missy!!

I can’t wait to see the rest of them. I will get on the comments, although I have feeling that I will be making all of them hahaha, kidding!!!! My family and friends will probably explode your website LOL!!!
I can not thank you enough. I totally adore your work and style. You have captured one of the most important days of my life thus far. You are not just a great photographer, you are a wonderful person. You are genuine and sincere, I wish everyone was more like you, we need more people like you in this world. I feel so blessed to have been able to meet and work with you. I will recommend you to everyone I know that is looking for a photographer not that I don’t already tell people about the other Melissa Murphy I know 🙂 I will keep you on speed dial for when Mike and I get pregnant (for our expecting photos) and our baby annoucements, if you do that sort of work as well?
“AHHHHH I just checked your blog!   I LOVE ALL OF THEM.
I feel like I just relived my wedding.

If you were with me right now you would laugh because my excitement is abounding.

Thank you. You are the best photographer ever. I couldn’t be happier 🙂


“Hi Missy!

We LOVE them!!  They are unspeakably wonderful and as I’ve sent the link out to family and friends I’ve had two people call me crying and my sister text me saying she was jealous and could only look at them while eating ice cream.  Haha!  So needless to say, they capture such great, true, emotion – and are really just perfect.   You are truly talented and we are so blessed to get to work with you.  We love them and I can’t wait to see the rest!…
