From the Engagement shoots to the actual wedding day, it was such a pleasure working with them both.  They made our photo shoot so fun and easy with so much creativity! And all of our photos were so beautiful. Mel + Tim are simply amazing.  I highly recommend this husband and wife duo and would definitely book more photo shoots with them! Thank you for capturing our special, once in a lifetime event.  You guys are rock!  :-)

Natural, creative, and uber talented! Mel and Tim (big plus husband & wife team!) are a powerhouse. We secured their services for wedding and are SOOOOO happy with the pictures. The groom is a bit "shy" in front of the camera. Out of the blue, Tim starts playing reggae and J starts swaying to the beats. Melanie's keen artistry & sense of calm is unlike no other. Together, they rock!!! Their intuitive nature, proactive communication, and oh-so-pleasant personalities stand out from the rest. We will certainly reach out to them again for photography services.

It was such a pleaure to work with Mel and Tim!  From our initial meeting, to the engagement shoot, to the wedding day, they were a breath of fresh air.  They are a kind, creative, professional, and talented husband and wife team that strive to make your experience memorable. We had never done a professional photo shoot before, so when it was time to do our engagement pictures, we really did not know what to expect.  However, Mel and Tim made it so much fun and put us at ease! They gave us different posed postitions as well as caught us in our natural element, which was a nice balance.  We had so much fun shooting with them, and we ended up going over our alotted time which was no big deal to them at all! On our wedding day, they once again made us feel relaxed.  When we did our first look pictures, they made sure to find the perfect location where we could be alone.  After capturing the moment, they gave us a few minutes to ourselves to absorb the precious moment. They really are the perfect team and compliment each other nicely.  They have a true gift and made an incredible impression on us.  We would definitely recommend Mel and Tim to anyone, and we plan to work with them again in the future! Thank you for everything Mel and Tim!  We couldn't have picked two better people to photograph the most special day of our lives :)

MTP delivered service that truly made our day complete.  Everyone was so nice in general, however, MTP took the GOLD for customer service and friendly/professional guidance.  Having never been through anything of this nature as a bride, but gone through so many weddings as a bridesmaid, I knew exactly what I needed in a photographer.  My big worries were challenges like setting, posing of me and my hubby, family picture logistics and timing.  But in working with both Melanie and Tim those challenges disappeared.  They gave us solid advice throughout in which we put to great use - because we listened. After all, when in doubt as an expert.  MTP brainstormed special touches too that made our photos unique!  And when we saw the pictures - we were stunned.  The touching moments they captured put everything into focus - pun intended :).  Thank you Mel and Tim Photography!!

These are amazing photos!!! =D we both didn't realize it would come out this way, a lot of friends and families like how artistic the photos came out. Of course, all of them took notice of the umbrella shot! That's my favorite too and we were truly blessed for great weather that afternoon and blessed to have you as our photographer! Thank you for being generous with your time and talent, 1278 photos are plenty beyond our expectations. You and Tim really captured every aspect of our special day, Ochie and I were just laughing all over again when we saw pictures of our parents, uncles and aunties kissing and how they reacted to that game! Just one of our favorite priceless moments! We now have clear and beautiful photos of our wedding day something we really appreciate!! Thank you!!
