Contact me to block a day for full sessions or weddings. No down payments needed for portrait shoots. I usually get fully booked up in summer and fall, so keep an eye on the calendar.
All full portrait shoots usually take place 2 to 4 hours before sunset to get the best light. If available senior shoot days are close to your yearbook due date, no worries, I will edit those shoots within a day if necessary.
For senior and family mini shoots, see available dates below.
If you want photos to really capture your essence, use Melissa! She is a true professional and will naturally bring out your best features. I was shy about having my pictures taken but after she did my photo shoot I was so impressed I told everyone about her. I really like her style. You will not be sorry!
You are the best portrait photographer around here. Your backgrounds are gorgeous, you have a real talent for using light and shadow. But the most impressive thing about your work is the individual personalities you bring out in your subjects. They seem so relaxed and at ease with you. They trust you and that is something so many aspiring photographers can never master.
Holy smokes, amazing as always! I can’t wait to see the rest. You just have something about you that is indescribable when taking pictures.
You deserve your success. You give so much to clients and fellow photographers like me. I’m honored you took my son’s senior and my family’s pictures. You go above and beyond and are so amazing. I love working with you at weddings and I would not trust anyone else but you with these pictures. You are oh so good. Thank you !
Wow! The photos Melissa took of our wedding are nothing short of incredible.
Before the wedding, she is so good about getting everything organized so the day of the wedding you don’t have to worry about a thing. On the wedding day, she makes sure to get all of the important shots. From the details and getting ready, to bridal party and family pictures, to the many stunning shots of me and my husband and the fun of the reception, all of my favorite moments were captured to perfection.
Melissa and Yasiris are an awesome team and so fun to work with, sometimes you forget they are there to do a job! To top it all off, Melissa is extremely timely in getting pictures back to you for you to enjoy! I have received so many compliments on the photos, and my family and friends have all been incredibly impressed by the quality of the photos. I will absolutely cherish these photos forever.
I highly recommend Melissa to anyone looking for a wedding photographer, you will NOT be disappointed! You simply cannot beat the quality and service that Melissa provides. Thank you, Melissa, for giving me memories that will last a lifetime!
My husband and I used Melissa Shanley for both our engagement photos and our wedding photos and we could not be happier with the outcome.
Not only is Melissa an incredibly talented photographer that will go above and beyond to take the pictures you want, but she is easy to work with and makes every photography session into an enjoyable experience for everyone involved!
I highly recommend Melissa Shanley Photography!
