I love when people tell me they “creep” on my social media.
That term is now the biggest compliment in this age of social media. So please, come creep on me!

When I say I love my clients, I mean it. & it feels wonderful when they love me back.
Here’s what some of my sweet client friends would tell you about working with Josh & I :
Wedding & Engagement Sessions:
“Melissa Marshall. I'm not sure words can do her talent justice. Finding the right photographer was one of the most important aspects of my wedding planning. I couldn't imagine having gone with anyone else. Melissa is incredible as a photographer and an individual, and she's also incredibly passionate about what she does. My husband and I will forever cherish our photos. She captured our wedding day and the love we share in the most artistic and beautiful way. Our friends and family still can't stop raving about how much they adore our photos. Everyone wants to know who in the world did our photos. A million times thank you, Melissa. You have no idea how much that means." - Elaine & David
"Melissa photographed both our engagement and wedding photos, it is such a special and hectic time in ones life so it was truly a blessing to have a photographer such as herself.
Dylan and I are both shy but working with Melissa was like spending time with an old friend. She loves her job and her clients, and she will go above and beyond to capture it perfectly. She truly is a gem." - Bailey & Dylan
"Our favorite vendor from our wedding was definitely our photographer. Our wedding was DIY'd, short and sweet. And Melissa captured every moment perfectly! She made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. We trusted her amazing eye for photography every step of the way. Everyone told me that my wedding would go by so quickly that I wouldn’t even have time to eat. They were absolutely right! Thankfully, we had an amazing photographer to help us remember all of the details of our wonderful day, even the ones we didn’t see!" - Mason & Mika
"Melissa. They are incredible. Thank you so so so much for capturing all of the little moments and special parts of our day. It made it so easy knowing we could trust you to document our wedding day and make us feel comfortable and confident! So thank you thank you thank you!!” - Jeff & Raquel
"These are so just us. It means so much to me that you took these. These are the sweetest of moments that I’ll hold in my heart forever. That’s the gift you gave to us and that’s the best gift you could’ve ever given to us. Not just pictures, but memories... moments. It gets me teary just thinking about it. You captured the thing that’s most important in this world to me in a frozen memory. I could go on forever about how much this means to me.
- Jordan & Madison
"Selecting a photographer was one of the most important decisions for us in our wedding planning. I was already following Melissa’s photography long before getting engaged, so she was always on my list of photographers to check out. We were originally researching venues in OKC before deciding on a destination wedding, so I randomly came across a video of Melissa’s own wedding. Once I figured out the coolest bride ever was also one of my favorite local photographers, I knew we had to email her. I absolutely love her photography style AND personal style, so I knew she would understand the vision I had for my own wedding. Our engagement session sealed the deal in selecting her for our destination wedding. She was so enthusiastic about our engagement session when we started emailing, and she was friendly and professional from the very beginning - and despite us being unphotogenic and super awkward in photos, we liked every one of the photos she took!
We’re so thankful Melissa could come to Tulum and take pictures of our welcome dinner and wedding day. She took photos I didn’t even think to ask for, and she captured the love and fun so perfectly. Every person that came to the wedding was blown away by how awesome our photos turned out, and we are all still looking at them months later. Those photos are a time capsule of the best weekend of our lives, and we will love reliving it every time we look at them.
If you want to have epic photos of your wedding (and look cooler than you probably are) while also making a new friend, choosing Melissa is a no-brainer. This is her passion, and it comes through in her work." - Peter & Casie
"Wow, wow, wow. Melissa Marshall was more than I could of ever imagined. She wasn’t just a photographer that was there for 8 hours then left. She was THERE, she was present and she was our friend. I knew I needed her and she exceeded all of my expectations and worth every penny!" - Cody & Jozanna
"We're freaking out."
"Every single photo is amazing - how do we pick favorites?"
- Elliot & Tara
(via group text after seeing their photos - haha love it)
"I was lucky enough to have Melissa shoot my boudoir before she left for Portland. She not only is amazing at what she does but she is super easy to get along with and will make you feel comfortable in a not so easy shoot. She captured some amazing pictures and my soon to be hubby was speechless. I will definitely look back at these photos when I'm old and grey. Pop a bottle of champagne, listen to your favorite tunes and let her do the rest you will not regret it, she will make you look amazing!" - Maria C.
"I cannot say enough about this shoot or Melissa! It was such a fun and different experience that I believe all women should do at least once, if not multiple times! Melissa is so laid back and she makes you so feel comfortable and beautiful throughout the whole shoot. I highly recommend to any woman even thinking about it. Do it! You're beautiful and you will not regret a session like this!”
- Courtney C.
