Melissa Kelly is AMAZING!! We absolutely love every picture taken by MKP. From our initial meeting with Melissa, we could tell she truly cares about her clients and wants to make your photography experience as easy and perfect as possible. Melissa is extremely personable and fun... Read More to be around. She was willing to travel far for our engagement session and was happy to do it for us. From our engagement pictures, we were completely impressed. Then we were then BLOWN AWAY by our wedding photos. Every moment of our day was captured perfectly and thoroughly. Melissa is so talented; you can see this through every beautiful, natural, and artistic photo taken. Aside from the amazing photography, Melissa and her team provide exceptional service. She is quick to respond to emails and happy to help in any way. She makes sure the day runs smoothly and is flexible, especially when those day-of glitches occur. She can even help fix a broken dress bustle! I knew my photographer would be with me for a whole day, so I wanted to make sure we found someone who was comfortable to be around, and we sure did! After meeting with several photographers, Melissa stood out because we never felt like it was a “business deal”- she is truly interested in your wedding photography and dedicated to making your photos one of the best parts of your wedding experience. I receive so many wonderful compliments about my wedding pictures and that is all thanks to Melissa Kelly Photography! I highly suggest you to visit her blog and see her amazing work!

Melissa Kelly Photography is THE BEST. Melissa and her co-photographer Kerry are absolutely amazing and such a pleasure to work with. I met Melissa when she photographed my best friends wedding 2 years ago, and I was so amazed at how professional she was and how comfortable... Read More she made everyone feel, I couldn't believe how easy it was. My wedding day was just the same. We shot our engagement photos one month before our wedding due to our busy summer schedule and it was the first time we had really met Melissa. She made me and my husband feel so comfortable. I was pretty vague and didn't really have an idea of what photos I wanted, just knew a few locations that would be cool. Melissa totally ran with it, took control, and it was like she had known the spots we were shooting all along! The wedding day was just the same. Before the ceremony, Kerry shot with the guys, Melissa the girls...again barely gave them any specific direction as to what we wanted, maybe a few photo requests, but they totally went above and beyond and took shots I didn't even know I wanted until I saw them! They handle family and bridal parties so well. Best of all, Melissa is SO efficient in getting the photos back to you. I didn't have any expectations as to when we would get the photos and figured when I get them, I get them...well with Melissa you can expect a high turn around with a personal touch. I cannot rave about Melissa Kelly Photography enough, she wasn't only our photographer, she is now our friend. Such a pleasure to work with and such a great person to know, I am so lucky to have met and worked with her.

If you've stumbled upon Melissa Kelly Photography on this site then look no further, she's the one you want! We spent a weekend meeting with photographers early on in the grueling vendor selection process, and Melissa was the last one we met with- which was a shame because we... Read More would have saved ourselves a few days if we met her first! We were immediately drawn to her easy going and humble personality, and loved how easy she was to talk to. Melissa took the time to get to know us and we used her for our engagement shoot, rehearsal dinner, and entire wedding day. While many vendors out there are clock watchers, and charge you extra for more hours, Melissa was never about that. She was just as interested in capturing as much of our day and weekend as we were- and she did it with the same laid back demeanor that she always has which made us feel so comfortable. Her work is pretty amazing too, which is an added bonus! Her responsiveness and communication is also unmatched. We could go on and on, but just do yourselves a favor and book Melissa for your wedding photography, that's all you need to know! Dan & Ali

I cannot say enough how amazing Melissa Kelly is! From the first time I emailed her, she promptly responded and set up a call for the same day. By the end of our conversation we had booked her for our wedding day. She is extremely friendly, professional, and immediately puts you... Read More at ease (which was great for someone who is camera shy like me). When we met in person a few weeks before the wedding, she took us through each detail of the day and helped us schedule our time to make sure we could get all of our “must-have” shots. When the wedding day came around, she was efficient, organized, and kept us right on schedule so we could focus on having fun with our bridal party. In addition to being such a wonderful person, her photography is absolutely amazing and worth every penny. She managed to pick perfect spots and shoot amazing pictures even in rainy weather. She even lied down in a puddle to get the perfect angle and pose – anything to make sure she gets the best shot! She was able to keep us all at ease, reign in a large and boisterous bridal party to get all of our shots, and do it all in a way that was fun and effortless. She had our photos back to us within a week and we loved looking through them over and over again. It was definitely the most important and best investment we made in our wedding day. Our family and friends cannot stop raving about what an amazing person and talented photographer she is. We loved working with Melissa and would highly recommend her!


Picture Perfect..and then some

To say that Melissa Kelly is a great photographer would be the understatement of the year. She's way more than that. Her creativity, patience, direction, speed, and ninja-like skills are unparalleled. We noticed her wedding picture of the week on phillymag.com and we knew... Read More we had to meet. After sending an email that received a response in record time, we had scheduled our meet-up. From that first interaction with her, we were hooked on some MK. We didn't bother interviewing anyone else. We felt that great about our choice. We booked our engagement photo session with her as well and we knew that we had "our" photographer. She listened to all of our crazy ideas and lent her creativity in ways we couldn't have come up with. We feel in love with our pictures, and the best part, we saw them in days. Not weeks, but in hours. Amazing. As for the wedding, the biggest compliment we can give her was that we didn't even know she was there. Seriously...that's where the ninja skills come in handy. Sounds weird, but she was never up in our faces. Never too prescriptive. Never closed off from our ideas. The gal is a trooper and totally dedicated to you and her commitment to delivering the best work possible. And those pictures...swoon-worthy! She'll do anything for the shot and she's always painting you in the best light. The amount of compliments we've received are well worth any price that was paid. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention turn-around time once again. We had our pictures in just about a week or so. Seriously...that fast. By the way...Print those pictures! If you are looking for a photographer that delivers 100%, do yourself a favor and cancel your other appointments and get one on the calendar with Melissa. Feel that personal click that we felt, and then with every click of her camera, you're going to be in love with every image she captures.
