What our clients have to say about their experience with Melissa Bliss Photography:

Lauren and John, wedding“Melissa photographed our wedding last fall and we were so impressed with the quality of our pictures! Even though we had less than ideal weather conditions, Melissa still managed to create some gorgeous shots for us - I was amazed when I saw our gallery! She was awesome to work with from the start and instantly put us at ease in front of the camera. I am so thankful we were able to book with her!" 

Tia and Eric, elopement : “Tia and I are very grateful to have to met you. Your work is incredible and I’ve recommended you to two other couples soon to be married. Everyone loved the pics. You made us famous back home! We will be requesting your services again (1 year anniversary). Until then happy shooting.”

Kristen,  newborn lifestyle session“We were thrilled with the photos. We already treasure them and know that they will become more and more precious as our little guy continues to grow. I can’t thank you enough for the glimpse into those early days that feel so blurry to me. I can only tell you that I tear up every time I look through them. Sorry that this thank you is so long overdue. It couldn’t be more heartfelt!”

Karly and Michael,  engagement session“The portraits are beautiful!! You did an amazing job. Very pleased with everything, especially how quickly you got the finished photos back to us. I will definitely recommend you to friends in the area! Thanks again for everything!”

Lynn, family session“I am so thankful I found Melissa. She clicked with my kids immediately and always manages to capture their best moments. She goes above and beyond for all her clients and that is evident in all her work. I will continue to book sessions with her each year because I want to always remember these amazing moments with my family that go way too quickly.”

Drew, engagement and wedding“Melissa is extremely talented! I couldn’t be happier with our engagement and wedding pictures. She captured exactly what I envisioned! Very easy going, patient and friendly! I highly recommend. Can’t wait to work with her again for family pictures next summer…. I’m already planning it.”

Colin, surprise proposal“Melissa was the most friendly and professional person that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She agreed to photograph my surprise proposal to my now fiancée, on location in the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. She was there early, made sure everything was just how I wanted it, and captured one of the most special moments of our lives. For as friendly and easy-to-work-with as she is, she is even more skilled at her craft — our photos turned out amazing and both of our families have been in awe of how great everything looks. Thank you so much, Melissa for being part of our big moment!!”
