Love Notes

Experiences of Past Couples

"If anyone is thinking of doing a couples photo shoot, I cannot recommend Melody enough. This was such a beautiful experience that cracked both Clay and I wide open and we fell in love all over again. Melody is magic. I never thought a couples photo shoot could be so wonderful and fun and intimate. And the Love Letter album she created for us is so gorgeous! She included lyrics from songs that Clay has written for me over the years. We will cherish this for the rest of our lives. Thank you so very much, Melody."

"My husband and I had just welcomed our second child so the romance was definitely dulled. The last thing I felt was that Matthew was attracted to me. But then, Melody showed up and started her magic. Her personality was so warm and welcoming and more comforting than I could have ever hoped for. She was so open minded, patient and creative with our entire session and then - something amazing happened. There we were, playing around and getting eaten alive by mosquitoes and suddenly, Matthew looked at me like he did when we first met. Melody took a sincere & deep interest in the love between us and, by the end of the photoshoot, we were relaxed and laughing with each other and more in love than when the day began. There's something so magical about these photos. When we both look at them, we are transported to that feeling of love and romance. I am not sure words can do this justice - Melody gave us an amazing experience as a couple, not just breath-taking art. I recommend having a couples session with Melody as often as possible as a way of investing in your relationship and keeping that spark alive."

"We've had the opprotunity to work with Melody twice now and let me just tell you...I LOVE the photos she produced in both sessions. I have a metal print on my wall of a photo she took during our Wanderlove session in Hawaii that gets more comments than anything else we have displayed. A couple years later, she did an in-home session for us and, while the setting wasn't as breathtaking as a sunset in Hawaii, she still managed to capture the most gorgeous photos of us. I will always treasure my Melodic View images and can't wait to shoot with her again someday! Also...just for the record: her client closet will make you giddy! It's like a grown up dress up and I can't get enough!!"

"Melody, you are amazing and excellent in what you do! Thank you for making our creative dreams happen. If you find yourself on the Olympic Peninsula in the future, we would love to meet up again!"

"We had the most wonderful time on our session with Melody. She made us feel comfortable (not an easy feat with couples photos) and directed us perfectly. She has such incredible talent to capture the most exquisite photos in the simplest moments. We are forever grateful for these images and definitely recommend her to anyone and everyone!"

"I never thought I would say this about a photography session but I LOVED it!! I've never been comfortable or enjoyed being in front of the camera but you made it feel so natural and we ended up having a blast! Both my husband and I were so happy that we got to experience this with you and you made it so much fun. We absolutely loved the end result."

"We loved our photos from Zion National Park! Melody was incredibly easy to work with. She gave us enough guidance for the photo shoot without constricting who we are. I would highly recommend her for your portrait work if you want something creative and outside the box."

"I could write an extremely long review about our session with Melody, but I'll sum it up in two words: Simply Amazing. My wife and I connected on another level we never have while having photos taken. Truly was a great experience. She directed us perfectly and allowed us to show our genuine love in each post. Highly recommend her!"

"Melody, you are fantastic! A true artist, a talented photographer and a kind and energetic person. We are very happy that we chose to work with you. All of our pictures are great and everyone loves them. You made it super easy for us to be in front of the camera and I love that you offered your gorgeous dress collection for me to wear. I have highly recommended you to all of my friends who are looking to have a unique experience and amazing photos. Thank you for providing such great customer service. YOU ARE THE BEST!"

"Melody is extremely friendly and easy going. We had a blast working with her during our session. We felt as though we were falling in love again for the first time during our photoshoot. Everything was great, and the photos came out amazing. This was the best photoshoot I have done till this day, and Melody is so passionate in what she does. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who's looking for a photographer. She really brings out the best in you, and time flew by during our session for us. I can't say enough amazing things about Melody. Love her."

"My husband and I are elated with the final product as well as the entire experience we had from our wedding pictures with Melody. The process was mostly electronic, which we both appreciated. She also addressed every concern we had. Also, personally as someone who is photo shy and totally clueless as to what to do with myself in a photo - she gave excellent direction. I have already recommended her to a few friends who are getting married and will continue to do so."

"It was a pleasure working with Melody, especially if you are not used to posing. She took time to speak to both of us prior to the session and the session itself flew by because she knows exactly what kind of shots she wants to capture for each couple she photographs - it's not cookie cutter at all. Every couple has a unique love story and Melody knows how to make it special. Tom isn't used to photographs and is a little shy but it was easy to convince him to do a session because Melody turns it into an adventure - not just a photo session. It was a wonderful opprotunity for us to reconnect since we've been married for a couple years. What I liked most was the feeling of just having fun with my love and not even realizing Melody was there - it was like she was invisible! You can definitely trust her with your love story and I highly recommend her - the expereince is so worth it. Each time we see the photographs from our Wanderlove session, we remember how much we love each other. And, believe it or not, thanks to Melody, Tom loves to model now!"

"Melody is a wonderful photograhper! She made us feel comfortable the whole time - which is amazing for two people who are incredibly awkward in front of the camera. Our pictures are truly pictures of "us" and we will treasure them."

"We had so much fun working with Melody! It was our first time doing a photoshoot and Melody did an amazing job making us feel comfortable and guiding us. The photos are absolutely beautiful and I cannot stop looking at them. I would highly recommend working with Melody!"

"My wife Dani and I had a very clear idea of waht we wanted for our pictures on our wedding day. Melody was more than we could have hoped for. We hit it off on the phone immediately! After our first conversation, Melody sent us a questionnaire to get to know us better. We found that SO helpful. She also volunteered her Friday night to walk through the venue with us so she could get a feel for the space and set up and go through out paperwork for the day. (Melody also happens to be an officiant!) After just seeing the sneak peek of our images, we can tell she crushed it! She put us completely at ease with her sense of humor and absolute dedication to getting us our perfect shot. Never in the way but always there, Melody was the embodiment of a butterfly on the wall, capturing every moment. In complete confidence, we would recommend Melodic View Photography and our new friend Melody to everyone!"
