Love from clients

"Melissa was our photographer for our late engagement/family photo session in october 2022. Melissa found a space that would work for our reactive dogs which made the idea of doing photos with them so much easier. We were very worried that our session wouldn't include them due to their reactivity, but that was not that case. They fell in love with Melissa's calm and loving personality almost immediately and we were amazed! This was our first time ever doing a photo shoot and thankfully it was a breeze! Melissa made us feel like rock stars, we enjoyed every second of the experience, especially the ones where we were laughing a little too much. I could not have picked a better photographer, our photos are amazing and I look forward to having her photograph our future wedding! It is without hesitation that I would recommend using Melissa Hidalgo Photography!" We love you Melissa!"- Acacia, Jager, Dexter and Delta

“Melissa was absolutely amazing to work with. She created a comfortable environment for all participants, including our little guy who was not quite walking yet! She was able to structure a variety of shots which not only caught the amazing scenery around us, but the candid moments as well. Not having each photo posed made the whole experience enjoyable. Melissa is approachable and open to different ideas which include all different kinds of photos from singles to groups. I will definitely be booking regular family photos with Melissa and recommending her to friends and family, near and far.” - Megan 

"10/10 Mel is absolutely amazing!! She is so kind, easy to get along with, makes you feel comfortable and always ensures you are having the best time during your session! She also allows you to bring your pups to the session and she comes prepared with treats and toys to make sure she can get the best/cutest photos of them as well! Whenever I need photos done I always go to Mel and I can not recommend her enough! The photos come out absolutely stunning and you will never be disappointed in the quality or the variety of photos Mel offers when she sends out the gallery ☺️ I always get compliments on the photos I have hung up around my home and they are all done by Mel! Like I said before, 10/10 highly recommend!"- Arianna
