“My experience with Mel and her sisters was something i will never forget. They made me feel so confident and extremely comfortable. I never felt awkward because they would always help pose me. I was very happy with how all of the photos turned out. They’re willing to go just about anywhere and try whatever you wish. I am very thankful for all they did for me.“

“Melissa did a fantastic job photographing our growing family! She and Melinda were so patient with our newborn, very active three year-old, and ten year-old daughter. Melissa’s creativity, eye for composition and use of lighting made for absolutely beautiful photos!”

“Mel is an amazing photographer who makes me, someone who hates getting their picture taken, love it. She truly is a professional and even though I got my senior pictures done with a friend she still made me feel like the most important person there. Her amazing assistant Melinda also makes you laugh more than you would ever think you would getting pictures taken!”

“My husband and I chose Mel thrush to do our wedding pictures, and they could have not been more perfect. From the engagement session, to planning for the big day, to rushing around all morning trying to make sure our day was perfect… Melissa made sure every detail counted. One of the most important things to me was that she made me feel comfortable and confident in my own body. She made me feel pretty. She took everything we said into consideration as she worked her magic. Our pictures turned out fabulous. I got everything I wanted and more. I cried looking at them. We definitely will be asking Mel to do many, many more shoots for us in the future!”

I am so thankful for her, highly recommend!”

“I had booked a mini Christmas session for my family of 5 with hopes of getting a good picture for a Christmas card. Well let me tell you Melissa and Melinda completely exceeded all my expectations!  I ended up with a framed 40×30 print on my living room wall! They were so great to work with and did an amazing job organizing us all. (Did I mention my kids are 2, 3, and 17 years old and it was a freezing cold December day!) I highly recommend Melissa Thrush Photography and look forward to another session soon!”

“My first experience with Mel Thrush Photography was about four years ago. She created an awesome football collage of my son. Since then, Melissa has been my go-to photographer. Whether it’s an intimate shoot for my daughter’s senior pictures, tackling the craziness of 15+ people for a large group family shoot, or capturing the essence of my son on a wrestling mat, Melissa delivers every single time. She’s has tons of ideas and is open to suggestions. I am amazed by her talent and highly recommend Mel Thrush Photography!”

“LOVED working with Mel! Getting photos taken can often be awkward but the whole session was so comfortable and fun that I laughed the entire time and all of my photos felt so natural! Not to mention she let me decide so much of what I wanted out of my picture session while also ensuring my ideas would turn out amazingly as the final product. Couldn’t have asked for more!!”
