Timeless…Romantic…I think those two words capture my photographic style best. My passion? Finding the “heart” of your wedding day. Telling your story in a relaxed and candid fashion that emphasizes relationships- the special people who are sharing this moment with you. I believe the “small” things are often the most significant- a look between a bride and her groom, the soft touch of your father’s hand, the tears in your sister’s eyes when she stands beside you as you say your vows. Honestly, I want you to “feel” my photographs. Someone once told me they saw a “quiet-ness” to my work. I hope that you’ll find that to be true and this peaceful quality allows all the love at your wedding to be on splendid display!
My 20+ years of experience prepares me to be ready for each special moment. To anticipate. And, at the same time, I love being a resource for you, willing and able to help in any way I can as you plan your wedding. I invite you to take advantage of my knowledge and contacts.
In order to do my best work, I limit the number of weddings I photograph each year. I find that personalized work takes time and attention to details. Making this decision has been the right one for me and, I believe, allows me to deliver my best work to you. One more important thing- my staff and I are committed to excellent, prompt customer service, something I feel starts at my front door.
“This is actually the second time that our family has had the pleasure of having Melissa (and her assistant, Tom) join us as our wedding photographer. Three years ago, Melissa and Tom took amazing pictures of my father and stepmother’s wedding so, when I got engaged, there was no question as to who would be our photographer. Melissa was our first call.
Having just sorted through the 1,800 pictures from the wedding weekend, we will be hard pressed to narrow down our favorites. Melissa and Tom truly captured the spirit of the weekend (from the formal family shots to the crazy friends on the dance floor). We know that we’ll cherish these pictures for the rest of our lives. As further testament to her talents, we used some of her amazing past photos of the Eastern Shore as gifts to our parents. A great way to commemorate the weekend — the shots were amazing.
Melissa was such a joy to work with and we would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing photographer.”
“Melissa Grimes-Guy Photography was the best vendor we worked with. When she first met with us, she was open and honest with us. She gave us her imput without being overly aggressive.
She was always super responsive and answered our questions almost immediately. By the time our wedding day came we felt like one of our friends was take the pictures. Her pictures really capture the moment.”
“Melissa Grimes-Guy Photography is the best! We wanted pictures that weren’t your “traditional” groups standing, bridal portraits, etc. and Melissa was able to do that. She was able to use everything our venue had to offer as far as making great pictures which was great too — we loved our venue because of its beauty and unique charm and we love that we have it all in pictures to remember for our lifetimes.
She is also someone who makes you feel really comfortable, which is hugely important on your wedding day. She has fun with you and really listens to what you want. We even suggested a few picture ideas and she remembered them ALL during the day!”
