    So delighted with the photos Sonya took. She's a true artist and makes one feel so comfortable as she does her work. I intend to tell all my friends as I know they would be as pleased as I am with the end product. Thank you Dear Sonya!!! Bonnie

    Sonya has photographed my family on several special occasions. When you can't go back and recapture those special "real time" moments you need a photographer that you can trust to get it right the first time, and Sonya is the best! She has an impressive background of education and experience. She is professional and friendly. She is always a pleasure to work with and always exceeds our expectations with her creativity and eye for perfection. I highly recommend Sonya Melescu Photography! Lisa R.

    I worked with Sonya when she was living in St. Thomas. She was the photographer and I was the videographer. The thing I loved most about working with Sonya was the way she put the subject at ease. It's easy for her, she has this radiant, warm energy that makes you calm and filled with love. I have seen it so many times with her not just with clients but with anyone she comes into contact with. When I was pregnant, I asked her to photograph me and I have to say I was nervous I'm not one to be in front of the camera. I have never felt so beautiful and powerful when she photographed me. The images she captured are just breathtaking. Having Sonya as your photographer you will not only get beautiful photographs that you will cherish forever but you will have a memorable experience of meeting Sonya!

    Sonya did a number of professional head shots for me. She was patient and positive, coached me well on the best poses and angles, and showed that she is a virtuoso at editing. She was a dream to work with. I give the highest possible recommendation.

I have taken numerous photographic workshops over the past 20 years. West Palm Photographic Center, Santa Fe Photographic Center, both several times different topics. Workshops in France, Tuscany Italy and Rome. Learned from the best.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I am professional and creative. I am kind and considerate when giving my clients direction. My attention to detail is an asset to my clients. Whatever time I spend with my client that time is doubled with the editing of the photographs afterwards. I am an experienced photographer, and punctual.
