We flew in from VA Beach for a long weekend and did a maternity/ surprise engagement photo session. Melissa was very responsive and had everything lined up prior to our arrival. As well as helped with hair and makeup appts with some great people. We wouldn’t have been able to accomplish all this without her help. We would recommend her to everyone and anyone without a doubt.Jul 16, 2019Verified
Love, love, LOVED our photos. She worked with our schedule and traveled to Kerrville for our pictures. I am not one to be comfortable with these kinds of things and she made it so easy. She sent us a huge selection of pictures to choose from and there were several that we just loved. She made the whole experience easy and fun, would definitely recommend and hope to use her again in the future!Oct 23, 2019VerifiedBordeau Photo's reply

Melissa was an amazing help with helping my proposal be as perfect as I wanted to be. I would highly recommend her to anybody who is looking for a wonderful photographer who really helped me out throughout the process. Cannot say enough good things about her!Sep 10, 2019VerifiedBordeau Photo's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing includes a one-hour session, post-production, editing and digital access to a personal online album where you can download the photos or purchase prints.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I'd love to talk with you over email or on the phone to flush out the initial details (location, date, time, etc.) I will scout locations if necessary. I will send a detailed calendar invite to lock in our session. In the calendar invite it will outline the amount of photos I will deliver, when I'll have the photos edited, where we will meet, timeline, pricing, etc. I will create a pinterest board of different pose ideas and bring this to our shoot. During the shoot it will be a very fun and collaborative experience. We will talk and get to know each other to ease into the experience. Most of my clients have never been in front of the camera so I understand how it can feel overwhelming and I do everything I can to help the process go smoothly. After the shoot I will send you the final edited photos (edited in Lightroom and Photoshop) within a few days. I will let you know the exact delivery date in our initial conversation.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have my own music blog (thebackstagevoice.com) where I write show reviews. I kept getting photo passes and one day realized I should buy a camera. I had always dreamed of being a photographer and the opportunity kept presenting itself. I started in concert photography and then my sister wanted me to shoot her engagement photos. The rest is history. I have now quit my full-time marketing job and am pursuing my passion, photography, full time. I would not change a thing!
