Kind Words

Melanie did such a great job with my son’s 1 year old cake smash, we returned 2 years later for my daughter’s 1 year cake smash. Once again we were blown away with her creativity and prep work.



Melanie was so great to work with! She was very responsive and worked so hard on the decorations! It was clear she was experienced and she made the cake smash so special for our little guy! She will be my go to for any pictures in the future!



Melanie did our engagement photos and they’re better than I could have ever imagined. She is doing our wedding in June and I’m so relieved to have found her.



Melanie was so great to work with from day one! From our engagement picture session to our wedding day we couldn’t have been happier. All of the pictures turned out great and her turn around time is amazing. I felt that we were always on the same page leading up to the wedding and our phone calls periodically always helped me organize details to have it all run smoothly the day of the wedding. We can’t thank Melanie enough!!!

Every session has been absolutely wonderful! We fall in love with every single picture. I always recommend to others! Will continue to keep doing pictures with Melanie.



I recently had the pleasure of working with Melanie Semple Photography for my professional headshots, and I am beyond thrilled with the results. From start to finish, the entire experience was seamless and enjoyable! Melanie took the time to understand my vision and personal style, making sure that the final photos reflected my personality/ professional image.
I would highly recommend Melanie to anyone in need of professional headshots. Her talent, professionalism, and friendly demeanor makes her a standout



Melanie has taken photos for my family several times. First, she was able to accommodate my very last minute request for my daughter's 1st birthday photos and the turn around time was impressive. Next, she took maternity photos when I was pregnant with baby girl #2 and I am obsessed with how they turned out. She found a gorgeous sunflower field to shoot in, at the perfect time of the day. She was so patient working with my 2 year old throughout the shoot, too.



We had several sessions this past year with Melanie, and are so excited for this year’s sessions! Melanie is so patient when it comes to our toddler refusing to sit still! Soon as we would receive the album, we would be stunned at how amazing all the photos came out. She has a real talent being able to capture the perfect moments in photos!



I can’t say enough good things about Melanie! She is so friendly and easy to talk to, prompt, and very prepared for whatever session you book! We had a family session and it was drizzling a little and she had brought umbrellas for us to help keep us dry. It was so appreciated and not to mention the photos turned out amazing!
Also - the setup and work she put into our son’s first birthday cake smash session was out of this world!



Melanie did such an amazing job on our family’s fall pictures! She was so patient in working with 2 kids and our baby, and got the best smiles out of all of them. It was such a fun experience, and Melanie made us feel totally relaxed during our session, since everything felt so natural. Her editing style is beautiful and we couldn’t be happier with our pictures. Her work speaks for itself. Thank you, Melanie!

Melanie was an amazing photographer! She was always available, communicated, and executed everything perfectly! She was so knowledgeable in what she did, and my final wedding pictures turned out AMAZING. Prices were very reasonable and she most certainly listens to what the bride is looking for and what her expectations are! Do not keep looking… just book right now

So happy I found Melanie to take my daughter's cake smash photos! The pictures turned out beautiful and she was great with both my kids! Definitely recommend getting pictures done by her!



We are so happy Melanie Semple Photography captured our wedding day! Melanie and her assistant Lindsey were fantastic to work with. My husband and I are camera shy, but they made us feel so comfortable and the photos turned out amazing! Melanie made the planning process so easy, they arrived early on our wedding day, captured the family and group photos quickly, and scouted the venue prior to our wedding day to ensure we had the best wedding photos.

I can’t recommend Melanie enough!! She is one of the best photographers I have ever met, so easy to work with, goes above and beyond creating whatever idea and type of pictures you want done. Amazing with my child always has him laughing for the camera, affordable pricing and offers payment plans, gets the pictures back to you in a great timely manner!
Thank you for all the wonderful pictures you have taken of my son

Melanie did a great job shooting our wedding! She was thorough in planning things and making sure I got the specific pictures we wanted, and actually way more prepared for my wedding than I was. She came early to scope the venue out and had an array of poses for us to do. Plus, Melanie was just fun to have at our event, which helped ease nerves. The photos turned out beautiful and she got them back to me so fast!

We went to Melanie for my wife’s maternity photos. Could not believe how amazing the photos turned out. Every photo came out better than the one before it. She is very creative and knows exactly how to position people. 100% professional the whole time.



Melanie took pictures for a Mother’s Day session she was offering! She was so patient with my daughter and the pictures turned out fantastic! If you are looking for a local photographer she is the one!

She is an amazing photographer and is great to work with. She wants your pictures to be about you and wants your special day moments get captured. I would use her again and if you don’t have a photographer then look no further. Our pictures are amazing.

We’ve done fall photos, Hot Cocoa Stand Minis and a Mother’s Day session with Melanie and I’ve loved every picture we’ve gotten. She’s captured my 3 little girls perfectly and I love the candid shots we have!!



10/10, booking was simple, the shoot went great and Melanie was so great with my then 10-month-old. Got pictures back quickly as well. She has a very good eye for settings and lighting and makes you feel comfortable.



Melanie did such a beautiful job on my maternity photos! She was flexible, punctual, and made my husband and I feel very comfortable! Melanie was very quick about getting us our photos - even with Christmas in the mix. She knew how excited I was about them, and gave me a preview of them the day after the shoot! I would definitely recommend Melanie's work to anyone!

Lindsey & Cory


Melanie is such an amazing photographer! I was nervous about having my picture taken, but she really helped me feel comfortable and relaxed. Melanie guided me through every moment of my photoshoot and she had so many creative ideas throughout the process – including staging, lighting, posing, and editing – she knew exactly what would look best! She also listened to all my ideas and was super accommodating and easygoing. Melanie was extremely easy to work with. She was both professional and fun!
