WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING...
She felt like my friend holding my hand throughout the entire event.
Melissa just captured my Biltmore Coral Gables event and she was just incredible! First of all, beyond her artistic talent, she felt like my friend holding my hand throughout the entire event. She made sure I was where I needed to be and that all the critical moments and details were captured. Most importantly, Melissa doesn’t just take pictures, she creates heirloom photography. She shot my event almost entirely in film, which brought life to the colors and detail and gave everything a dreamy quality - I know I’ll love these pictures forever. Sometimes you find a photographer that captures you’re essence instantly - that’s her! She has eye, the professionalism, and the talent. Her turnaround time also exceeded my expectations. You won’t regret hiring her.

The BEST investment! Where do I begin? I’ve been following Melissa’s photography for years and always knew I wanted my wedding day captured by her. I love her overall aesthetic and raw talent—it is beautiful, feminine, natural, and very unique. I do not consider myself photogenic (I’m that awkward person in photos who doesn’t know where to place my hands) and I explained all of my concerns to her. We were in constant communication so come the wedding day she knew which photos were the most important to me and made sure we had time to capture all of those moments. She did not rush us through the photos but made sure we felt comfortable and confident in her suggestions. I was honestly hoping for two or three good photos (again, I’m not photogenic), but I was shocked when we looked through the wedding album—every single photo is beautiful and she somehow captured in every frame all of the love, emotion, and happiness we were experiencing. She is hands down one of the best investments we made on our wedding day.
Do not skimp on your photographer. These are the photos and memories you will keep forever. Hire Melissa. She is the best.
It is definitely worth the investment with amazing photos you will have a lifetime!!
My now husband and I were searching for a film wedding photographer and found Melissa Blythe. I saw her Instagram and immediately fell in love! Her style is exactly what we wanted for our wedding day. Melissa is very responsive and works with you to create your own custom package (she is also a sweetheart!). On our wedding day, I thought her team was amazing! She put in a lot of effort to make sure we had amazing photos when it came to group portraits to just photos of my husband and I. She knew how to get everyone to focus and was very time efficient. She truly captured timeless photos! When we received our wedding gallery I couldn't have been happier. I also HIGHLY recommend you do a wedding album. We ordered a 12 X 12 leather album and it is my favorite keepsake from our wedding day. I honestly recommend Melissa Blythe Photography for your wedding day. You will get amazing photos and will never have self-doubt. It is not worth hiring a cheaper/inexperienced photographer on your wedding day, you will be left disappointed. It is definitely worth the investment with amazing photos you will have a lifetime!!

Melissa is awesome! I cannot say enough good things about Melissa!! She is AMAZING! She arrived 30 minutes early and helped to keep it a laid back experience the entire time. Her photos are amazing, and she took into account my \"good side\" and showed me the back of her camera after some shots. Definitely recommend!
What can I expect on my wedding day?
On your wedding day, we will guide you through your portraits in a manner that will feel natural and fun. You do not need to worry about the idea of having to know how to "pose." We're experts with angels and will provide little prompts to make you feel natural and relaxed, resulting in effortlessly romantic and timeless photographs.
We, of course, incorporate candid imagery into our workflow as well, to ensure those "laugh out loud" and "joyful tears running down your grandmother's cheek" are captured too!
Do you have a second photographer?
Yes. I photograph 90% of my weddings with a second photographer. Because my clients and I are both so portrait and detail-oriented, having a second photographer is non-negotiable unless the wedding day is more of an intimate, elopement style gathering. For much larger weddings and/or even more extensive coverage, a third photographer may be suggested.
Do you photograph using a "shot list"?
Yes and no. With every wedding day, there are the same pivotal moments that will need to be photographed, so of course, those are a given. Aside from those moments, I prefer to let my creative senses breathe and observe what is happening around me and photograph them in my own way.
How would you describe your photography style?
I would describe my photography style as naturally elegant, sophisticated, with a bit of a timeless yet editorial edge. The tone and colors of my photographs are true to what they actually look like in person (no trendy filters here), and the way I guide my clients into "poses" is the icing on the cake, delivering the bit of editorial edge that my couples love. My entire philosophy is to create images that make my clients feel beautiful and that will never go out of style.
What do your wedding collections include?
Each wedding collection is different from the other. Most of my clients have bespoke collections made for them since no two wedding days are truly ever the same.
With that being said, every collection does include Fine Art photography, a second photographer, an online gallery, and travel.
What is your booking process?
Once we have already coordinated your wedding date with my availability, you have chosen the perfect wedding day collection, and we're all set. I will send you a contract agreement to sign and request a retainer to be placed. Once those two things have been fulfilled, I am officially your photographer!
