Melissa did a fantastic job! She was quick with her responses via email and provided lots of information prior to our shoot. She did a great job wrangling my whole extended family for some family reunion photos. The prices were very fair, and the turn around time with the pictures was quick. And of course, most importantly, the pictures were beautiful!Feb 16, 2015Verified
Melissa was awesome! From the beginning she responded to my questions and was very professional. She provided us with some unique once in a lifetime photos our family will cherish. I would definitely recommend using Melissa Bliss Photography!Sep 17, 2013Verified
She was so easy to work with. Very patient with my two twins and my family that got I am sure got in the way a time or two! She was on time and I am pretty sure we ended right on time as well. I wouldn't change anything about it and I cannot wait to see all the photos. The teasers were awesome :) thank you again! And I will be using her more in the future!Jan 6, 2014Verified
We hired Melissa to shoot our family vacation (22 people). We wanted to do it on the beach, but had 2 days of rain. She was super flexible and did a wonderful job getting great shots in our beach house! We were very pleased with the photos!!Jul 31, 2013Verified
My daughter and I absolutely loved working with Melissa! From the time that I received the quote from her she was so nice and helpful.. She has a great eye for photography.. She takes amazing photos and is professional but also makes the session fun.. She gave us everything we asked for and then some.. I would recommend her for anyone who wants some great photos! I hope to get back to Virginia Beach soon and get her to take some family photos! It was such a pleasure working with Melissa and I can't thank her enough for the amazing photos of my daughter!Jul 8, 2013Verified
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes! As an artist I am continually growing and evolving. I regularly participate in industry workshops, read books and magazines on art and photography, and I am an active member of several photography forums as well. Technology changes quickly so I believe it is imperative to participate in continuing education. It is also exciting to push the boundaries and learn new ways of doing things.
- What types of customers have you worked with?My favorite images showcase connections and true emotion and reveal the subject's unique personality. I love shooting children, families and couples. Many of my sessions focus on families, but I also love to photograph weddings. Those once-in-a-lifetime-moments just make my heart sing. Weddings provide a unique set of challenges and opportunities and I thrive on that. Being prepared for the unexpected and pushing myself to find beautiful ways to capture each unique event is something I adore.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Take the time to review the style of your photographer and ask questions about how they work. In order to have the best experience possible, you want to be comfortable spending time with that person and know exactly what you'll be getting. I encourage my clients to browse my website and Facebook page and ask questions or chat with me prior to our session, so we have clear expectations before we shoot.
