Love Notes from
past clients & friends.

Melissa and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with. I had Melissa shoot my engagement pictures about a year before our wedding, and we were immediately impressed with her photos., but once we started to receive our wedding pictures back we were beyond impressed. She was so helpful throughout the entire process.

We were so impressed with her work that we have already referred her to a family member and friend who will be using her next fall. We can't wait to see her again! Can't say enough great things about her work.

Melissa was a absolute dream to work with!! Right from the start I knew I was in good hands. She is so kind, professional, thorough and she made sure she knew exactly my style and expectations of photos. Although weddings are stressful, the one thing I didn’t stress about were photos because Melissa had it under control. Her vibe is awesome, she kept me calm and most importantly I had fun! I highly recommend Melissa for any photography needs. Her photos speak for themselves, they are stunning!! But equally as important is behind the scenes - and she is truly an amazing photographer and person! I’m so glad I found and chose Melissa for my wedding.

All we can say is WOW! My husband and I are so grateful that Melissa and Bethany, were able to take our wedding photos. They both are so sweet and so incredibly talented! We could not have asked for a better duo to capture our special day! From the beginning of planning up to the wedding day, Melissa made everything so easy. She is very organized, personable, and professional. On the wedding day, Melissa made my husband and I feel comfortable and at ease so that we were able to soak up every moment! Melissa has an extremely creative eye. She has the ability to capture both timeless and unique shots that will take your breath away. Her photos went above and beyond our expectations! We 1000% recommend Melissa and Bethany.

Run, don't walk to book Melissa to photograph your wedding! Of the hundreds of decisions a wedding requires the couple to make, booking Melissa was the easiest. From our initial phone call where she asked thorough questions about our vision, to our fun engagement shoot down the Cape, to our beautifully captured wedding day, Melissa did it all. She was the calming presence you need that day, but she was also efficient and amazing at the same time. Our photos are the most beautiful wedding photos I've ever seen (biased of course). Our best friends are getting married next year and they didn't hesitate to book Melissa knowing how fantastic all of our photos came out. We can't recommend Melissa enough!

Kelly & Brian

Beyond being such a kind and easy person to work with, Melissa is amazingly talented at what she does. We are so grateful for the way she and her sister Bethany were able to tell the story of our wedding day through the most beautiful photography.

We had a great experience working with her for both our engagement shoot and wedding day, where she and Bethany worked so hard to get us all the shots we wanted. We couldn’t be happier with her work and will be cherishing our photos for a lifetime.

I first met Melissa at my sister-in-laws wedding, and knew immediately that whenever I got married, I’d need to have her as my photographer too. Melissa took our engagement photos and our wedding photos and they are STUNNING. She has such a calming presence and knows how to capture every special moment in the most amazing ways. Melissa is the sweetest person and was so flexible when we needed to reschedule our wedding due to the pandemic. She’s truly amazing and I am so grateful she captured our special day. Do not look any further for your wedding photographer...

Amanda & Ryan

Melissa and crew were simply amazing!! After speaking with Melissa for an hour for our initial call, I knew I wanted her to be our wedding photographer. Plus, I loved her soft, natural, feminine style. It was perfect for our Block Island wedding!! I’m a pretty indecisive person but she made everything so easy. She truly captured our wedding perfectly. We didn’t use a videographer but with how many amazing candids melissa and Bethany were able to capture from the ceremony through the reception, we were able to relive every detail. I received SO many compliments on my photos and at how sweet Melissa and crew were. I would highly recommend Melissa Stimpson for any occasion!
