Melly is so great! She’s so kind and fantastic at what she does. Her and Jacob captured my dream wedding and were the best team. I could tell it made such a difference that the photographer and videographer were used to working with each other. They made me and my husband feel so comfortable behind the camera and were fun to be around. I would highly recommend!
JESSICA & DRAKE
Melly was amazing. She made us feel SO comfortable in front of the camera for a couple who has never taken professional pictures before. Not only is she a great photographer but extremely sweet, friendly, and fun!
SUMMER & LOGAN
Melly is great to work with. She is very professional and responds quickly to requests and questions. We had to change our wedding date due to COVID, and she was more than willing to work with us to find a new date in her busy schedule. Her picture are beautiful! She came prepared and made my wedding day flow smoothly. She makes the photos easy to access and download. I would definitely recommend Melly!

Where do I start? It's hard to explain how much I recommend Melly and Jacob for your engagement and wedding photography/videography! From the moment we met, Melly was so sweet and made us feel so comfortable. My husband and I are not the most comfortable in front of the camera but she made everything so easy and we didn't have to worry about a thing, from engagement pics to bridals to the wedding day. She is so knowledgeable and you can tell she works her absolute hardest to get the best shots. She even made a picture schedule for our wedding day so we didn't have to stress about getting all of our most-wanted photos. So far, all of our pictures from engagement to wedding day have been so pretty and more than we could have ever hoped for. I've told her time and time again she works magic and I mean it! As for videography, our trailer was so beautiful and well-made, Jacob got such good shots and he'll tell you how excited I was that he brought a drone along for aerial shots of our venue! Videography is a must in my opinion and is such a sweet reminder of the most perfect day ever. I hope this encourages everyone to check out Melly and Jacob for your wedding photographer/videographer!

Melly & Jacob — what a team! While I was shopping around for vendors, I found Melly on the Arkansas Brides instragram page and DM’d her. She messaged back IMMEDIATELY and was so, so sweet. At first, I wasn’t sure I was interested in videography, but after talking to Melly for a bit, she convinced me how special it was to have a keepsake that allowed you to relive your big day, and I’m so glad I listened to her! Melly and Jacob captured our day FLAWLESSLY and I could not be happier with the results. Not only did we get a perfect video, I got SOOOO many photos— more than ANY of my married friends ever received! The only downside is that I love them all and can’t decide which ones to frame!!! They were so easy to work with, make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and the results are absolutely amazing. If I could rate them more than 5 stars, I would!!!!!!!

Melly and Jacob are the best team! Melly made us feel so comfortable during our engagement shoot and I couldn't have asked for better photos. SO many people have asked me where we went because she has such a good eye for setting the scene. We took some photos with our dog, and somehow she even got him to stay still and look at the camera. On our wedding day, they captured every little precious moment. They were so helpful with posing us, but also capturing true candid moments. We decided last minute to add video on to our package and I am so thankful we made that decision. My mom still cries every time she watches the video because it really captures the essence of that day. When I first started looking for vendors, I was so overwhelmed because everything seemed too expensive, but the cheaper options seemed like our photos would be rushed or not really what I wanted. Melly + Jacob have the highest quality of work, but are actually much more reasonably priced than comparable photographers. Also, they give you so much photo time on your wedding day. They are definitely worth it! I never dreamed that my wedding photos could look how they do. They really made my husband and I feel like models haha. Plus, Melly and Jacob are awesome humans and they were just fun to be around, which is something you definitely want when you're taking a million photos and its hot. I seriously have no complaints from my experience; if I ever need photos again, I will come to them!
Carley & jacob
My fiancé and I chose Melly to be our engagement/wedding photographer not only because she takes amazing pictures but also from all of the good things we had heard about her! We definitely made the right decision! Melly was so awesome to work with! She is so friendly and made us feel comfortable behind the camera because she knew exactly what she was doing. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!!
Rachel & Dylan
Melly is the absolute best wedding photographer/videographer. Searching for vendors for my wedding day isn't the easiest task. But ever since I messaged her inquiring about prices and information, she was extremely quick to respond. Along with always getting back to me, she is helpful when it came time to find the perfect location for our engagement pictures. Our engagement pictures came back and I had very high standards. But Melly completely surpassed all expectations. It was so hard trying to narrow down my favorite pictures from the shoot. And our engagement video completely captured both mine and my fiancé’s personality. We are so thankful to have these memories captured to cherish for the rest of our marriage together. And finally, Melly is BY FAR the best and most fair pricing. I didn’t realize how overpriced some photographers can be. But Melly is the absolute best at what she does, but she doesn’t inflate her prices. Melly will do whatever it takes to capture your vision and make you happy. I am so thankful I decided to have her do my photos, best decision I’ve made so far in the wedding planning process.
Jensen & chase
Where do I even start?! Melly had a photoshoot day prepared for us and it was so much more than just taking pictures. We had so much fun, had so many fun conversations, and got to explore all while she captured our personalities. It didn’t even feel posed. We found a new favorite photographer as well as a friend in Melly. We will continue to use Melly as much as possible because we love her so much!
Leah & anthony
Melly shot my double wedding for my twin sister and I! She did a wonderful job of capturing all of our special moments throughout the day without us even knowing she was there. The video quality was more than we could have imagined and I’m so thankful I’ll have the videos to look back on. I highly recommend Melly!
Megan & Seth
Melly was an absolute blast to work with! For our engagement session, she hiked through the woods and brush and mosquitos to get some amazing shots. She always made my husband and I super comfortable and gave good guidance when we had no idea what we were doing. I'm pretty spunky, and I love how she was able to capture my personality in a still shot. Melly shot every moment of our wedding day splendidly, from our first look to our bubble exit. She is creative, flexible, and everything a girl could ask for in a photographer. I wholeheartedly recommend Melly for all things wedding!
Lauren & Dillon
Melly did an amazing job capturing the special moments of our double wedding! She even went out of her way to create two separate videos for each couple and we will forever cherish that. I highly recommend Melly for videography OR photography- her style is timeless.
Stephanie & Maxwell
Melly is so much more than what I expected from a photographer! She is genuine & kind & truly cares about what you want from your photos. I gave her a timeline of photos that I wanted on my wedding day, and she stuck with it to a T! Not to mention her photos are nothing short of perfection ;) We are so pleased with how everything turned out & if we had it to do over, we would use Melly time and time again!
Megan & Mathew
"The best photographer ever!!! Melly was the absolute best photographer we could’ve imagined for our big day. She is kind, thoughtful, and really good at what she does! She had our wedding images back to us so quickly and they were just as dreamy as our wedding day was in person! She has a great way of capturing authentic joy in her photos and we will cherish her friendship for years to come! Can’t wait to have her capture other milestones in our life together."
Lindsey & Tanner
"Melly exceeded all of my picture expectations!!! She is so incredibly talented and really takes the time to get to know you and your vision! I’m so in love with my engagement, bridal, and wedding pictures! The quality of them were amazing, and I really felt like she captured our love story perfectly! She got all my pictures back fast and help me customize my save the dates, guest book and wedding album! Im so glad that I got to go through my wedding experience with her, she is the BEST. I highly recommend Melly!!!"
Ashton & Fisher
"Melly is amazing at what she does! She made my fiance and I feel so comfortable not only in front of the camera, but with her in general. I had been stressing about finding a photographer and we couldn't have been more lucky to find her. She is sweet, fun, and her responsiveness is impeccable. She is very communicative and has so many great ideas. She is also so fast about getting your photos back! I HIGHLY recommend her, and you won't regret it."
Ashley & Nick
"Melly is so in-tuned to the couple she is working with. She creates such a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere while still keeping the session moving and on-time! I had never had professional photographs done and was a little nervous before my engagement photos, but Melly had me feeling like a model in about 2 minutes! She was also flexible with my busy school schedule and was more than willing to come to Fayetteville for my session. I also can’t say enough about the quality of her work. After feeling deflated trying to find high quality photographers in my price range, I stumbled across Melly’s work also thinking the way she edited and found such amazing shots, she would be out of my price range. Melly got my photos back to me within 3 weeks of the wedding. I was amazed at how quickly she turned out my gallery. Seeing them all again brought the emotions from my wedding day right back and she captured the day beautifully. Could not recommend her more! "
Katelyn & Caleb
"Melly was absolutely everything we were looking for in a wedding photographer and more! She was extremely easy to contact and was so helpful before the wedding and on the day of. Her pictures were so dreamy and everything we were looking for! Would definitely recommend booking her for your wedding and she’s very affordable"
Jessica & Mark
"Absolutely love working with Melly! Gifted, professional, kind and caring. She truly loves her work and it shows. She takes the time to make sure she’s getting a perfect shot and does not make you feel rushed or uncomfortable. Can’t wait to see the memories she will capture of our big day. I am in love with our engagement pictures! "
Cassandra & Jamall
"Melly is such an amazing photographer. From day 1 when I first messaged her, she was polite and so friendly. It felt like I was talking to my best friend. When we took our engagement photos, she was a lady with a plan. We visited a couple different sites and she made that experience so fun for us. Our wedding wasnt for a couple months later and she kept in touch with me the whole time just to make sure I was doing ok. Come wedding day, she showed up early and even stayed way longer than expected just to make sure we got exactly what we wanted and needed. Melly is very organized and knows what needs to be done. Her pictures come out looking amazing. There hasn't been 1 single picture that I have not liked. She knows exactly what needs to be in the background, how we should pose, or shouldn't pose and what angles look best. Over all, I love this lady and her work and we are very pleased with everything she has done for us. I will be a repeat customer for sure and will recommend her to anybody for any event. We love you Melly!!!!"
