We are a team of two sisters photographing the most exquisite love stories throughout New England and beyond. The tears of joy, the uncontrollable laughter, the big kiss and the stunning details are just a few of the the “I do” moments that continue to inspire us. Make sure to leave us a note, we would just love to talk all things wedding with you!

A lover of luminous light, joyful elegance and images with feeling. Melissa’s photographs have been described as timeless, bold, deeply romantic with the perfect balance of honest wonder. A constant student of light and composition has elevated her photography over the past decade resulting in a curation of images that tell each unique love story.

Beautiful Love Notes from our
past clients & friends.

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.

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!

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.
