Dear Melody, We should have written this letter to you years ago. Now where do we begin and how much time do you have? for I/we have so much to say to you. Melody, even though we have known you for years now, to this day you never cease to amaze us with your creative photographic workmanship, and now you have this wonderful website too, Memories by Melody at: http://www.memoriesbymelody.com that we can use every day if we wish, and we do so, very often now. Melody, you have been such a blessing to our family through your imaginative photography and we want everyone to know it. Because of your artistic photography of our family, from our family portraits, to our childrens graduations, their engagements, weddings, our grandchildrens births in some cases, to our family reunions, and other special events, we now possess earthen treasures in heavenly vessels through your God sent photography that shall preserve our family members images and memories for lifetimes to come, from generation to generation, as we pass it on to our childrens children. Our entire family thanks you Melody for always being so precious, going out of your way for us, even though you live in Charlottesville, Virginia or Earlysville, VA, you have made yourself available just for us on so many occasions. Over the years you have flown to Alaska, Illinois, Texas, Arkansas, and even driven to Tennessee, Ohio, and come to many other locations at our requests, just to take pictures at our family events. What can we say, your photography is so imaginative, no other photographer weve used can compare, and we could never pay you enough money for the work you have done for us, no price and compare to the love you've expressed in your work done for us. After reviewing your new website again and again, specifically the section you created just for us of all the pictures of our family you've taken over the years, so that we can view them all in private through our own private pass code, and now we feel we have underpaid you over the years. Therefore, we have enclosed a love offering above and beyond what you have charged us for your sincere services rendered, and we do this just to show our true appreciation for you. Honestly Melody, you have been one of our best investments ever. Memories by Melody your inspired photos taken of us and our family in so many well-ordered ways are worth more than all the gold and silver on earth to our family memories. Youve brought so much joy to each of us, and you do so every time we go back and review your stunning photography, it continually takes our breath away. We are so thankful we flew you, all expenses paid, to every family event possible over the years so that we could end up with your Memories by Melody Treasures of our entire family. Truer words have never been spoken about the memories you have left us in photographs, photo albums, CDs, emails, and now your new website http://www.memoriesbymelody.com Seriously Melody, you should consider charging much more for your resourceful work; maybe even double your prices. Quality is far better to us than quantity when it comes to our memories. Melody, you only need to apologize for your higher prices once, than someone else having to apologize for their bad quality forever. Melody, you really have no idea how good your resourceful photography really is, but we do, and we tell everyone we can about you and your practical work. Thankfully some of those people have hired your professional services and so you know, we have only heard praises about your lovely work. Your photos are the most memorable pictures we have within all of our photo albums. You need to know we have had many other photographers over the years, and although they did take some nice photos they really could not compare to the inspiring work you did for us. You have a gift Melody Robbins that could only come from God. Thank you for sending us your newest website http://www.memoriesbymelody.com we love it. Now we can go and look at all of the thousands of photos you have taken over the years of our entire family, it is simply amazing! All we have to do is go to your website http://www.memoriesbymelody.com and enter the security code youve given our family, so that we can now privately view your vivid photographs of our entire family anytime we want from anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and we do this a lot. How brilliant . Your http://www.memoriesbymelody.com website is so AWESOME, just as you are! Its so nice to view the dozens of other beautiful families you have blessed with your talent. We love all the brides and grooms, where you capture their love for each other forever, their engagements, their weddings, graduations, family reunions, and so much more. We had no idea there were so many attractive people you have taken photos of. We know that timing is everything in photography, and you take the cake with your perfection and love for others, doing everything you can for us, and now others we see on your website, as though you are doing it as unto the Lord. One last thought; Melody, if you ever need a recommendation, just ask us, or better yet, please feel free to use this letter of praise and thanksgiving, for we do consider it was the Lord who sent you to us. Please, give it to anyone you wish to read, especially those who may be interested in a real professionals work that will last lifetimes for their family memories too. Melody, feel free to put this letter weve written to you up on your website and/or on all your posts for others to read. They all need to know who you really are, and about the talent God has given you to capture the precious moments only you of Memories by Melody could do. So bless everyone you wish with our letter, they all need to experience the joy you have brought us through your artwork. We thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for all the love and memories you have captured on film of our entire family for generations to come. Once again, we cannot thank you again for your website: http://www.memoriesbymelody.com containing almost all of the hundreds or perhaps even thousands of photos you've taken of our whole family over the years. If you put this website together you are also a genius in website creation, just as you are in photography. We talked to a friend of ours who does this kind of website creation for a living, he was really impressed. We asked him how much he would charge us at full retail to create a website just like yours, but only for us. We told him, if we wanted all the features you put up for us on your site on our site he would create, he said he would have to charge us up to $5,000.00 or more. And even more money monthly thereafter, if he had to continue to working on our site to improve it, as you keep doing to your own site. So Melody, for us to pay to have this instant treasure chest of pictures put up on the internet, so that our entire family could pull up all our pictures to view together or separately anytime each one of us wants to, from any computer, from almost any place on earth as we travel, it would have cost us an extra $5,000.00 or more. Therefore Melody, we must ask this question, Surely you do not do all this for everyone you do business with, and if so, how on earth can you afford to do it, that is without charging extra for it? We are willing and very happy to pay you for this extra benefit of doing business with you. So please, just let us know what the price is, and well pay it. May God continue to bless the work of your hands, your family, your photography work for us and many other families as well. With all our love, Anthony, Marie Jones, and because of your patience and instructions, our entire photogenic family.
She helped shape our ideas into something workable and then took over when we didn't know what to do next. Brittany made the entire process easy because she was flexible and responsive and listened to our needs and delivered exactly what we asked for. We had the pictures 24 hours after our session and they are exactly what we hoping they would be. Thanks Brittany!
It was a pleasure working with Al Wekelo on a project that involved multiple locations and coordination from a distance. GLMV Architecture needed a photographer that was able to work independently with our clients and produce quality images of completed projects. We will certainly contact Al for additional projects in his area of the country.
I am a natural storyteller. When I have a camera in my hands I am reminded to notice the beauty of our everyday lives. I believe in photographing the authentic person. I believe in giving teenagers a voice and building them up. I believe in listening to my clients and giving them a positive experience. I believe in showcasing your natural beauty. I adore the photographs of my family & friends and the walls in my home are covered with them. I understand the importance of these heirlooms and feel honored when I help create them for you. I am creative, goofy, friendly and fun! I truly love living near the Blue Ridge Mountains and I have golden retriever so everything I own is covered in dog hair. I love collaborating with other photographers on projects. And, I especially love taking "sportraiture" AKA cool, dramatically lit portraits showcasing the sport or even hobby that you love. You deserve to have high-quality photography on your walls. As a high-school senior you deserve more than a photo in a piece of velvet. You deserve photos that demonstrate you--your personality and your beautiful person. You are part of the most photographed generation ever and you have very little tangible proof of that. Some day your computers will be obsolete and your phones will change; that disc you have of your photographs won't work. That framed print, canvas print, wall display or album will never go out of style! Everyone has beauty; everyone has a unique story; and your story matters! I am a member of Professional Photographers of America and the Charlottesville Photography Initiative. I tell stories with photos ... Let me tell yours next!

I am not the sort of person who is particularly comfortable in front of the camera but Corey made me feel right at home. She has a wonderful manner about her that is both relaxed and easy, but also professional and direct. She was able to simultaneously materialize my ideas while also coming up with her own creative shots. And she made large family pictures easy. EASY. When does that ever happen? Corey's documentation of the wedding was great. She struck a fine balance between candid and posed photos, plus pictures of the setting and pictures of the guests. I've seen some wedding photographers that focus so much on the decorations and the dress that the photos of the wedding end up dry and impersonal, looking like they came out of a design catalog. Which is fine, but what I loved about Corey is her photographs have an intimacy to them. And what is a wedding if not intimate? Overall, I am thrilled. Corey did great job, was super-flexible, worked with me in terms of digital files vs. prints, AND I could afford her. I lucked out when I found her through a friend of a friend. She's a hidden gem.

Haven't seen the photos yet, but the photographer was a super nice person, very outgoing, and had some great ideas about where to take some good pictures.
Marcy was great! She came out to the house and took Cole's pictures and half way through the photo shoot he decided he was hungry and needed a bottle. She smiled and said lets take a break and let him eat. After he ate he took a little nap and that is when we got some really cute pictures also. She is very nice and will work hard to get great pictures!

I'm a native of Virginia, and have a deep love of the mountains and countryside (I'm known for scaring everybody in the car squealing "Stop! I've got to get a picture of that!").

I take photos in locations of your choice (although I do have some excellent suggestions) that will express who you are, who your family is, and what you mean to each other. It's fun, even a little rowdy, but it all ends with beautiful, natural photos of you and your family.
