When I became engaged I knew exactly who I wanted to capture the day! Melani had photographed a friend's wedding and I was blown away by her style, esthetic and warm nature. Thankfully she was available for my day! By far the BEST vendor I worked with throughout the entire wedding planning process. The images she captured are breathtaking. Her eye sees precious vignettes of not only the bride and groom but of all our loved guests. Our day was documented beautifully and we have more favorite images then we ever hoped for! The best decision we made was booking Melani.

It was with some curiosity and anxiety George and I walked towards the Love sign to meet you yesterday. We have both loved your work, your website, and your video. We wondered if you would be demanding and stern photographer (like our mothers when taking photos), or if you would be one of those fashion photographers that would say "make love to the camera" (with a French accent of course) or if you would be journalistic and make us try to figure out the frames and shots we want (which would be worst case for us, since we know nothing of photography). You have surprised us with your energy, your enthusiasm, your creative eye, and most of all your ability to make us feel at ease. Even though I usually hate to be the center of attention and become very self-conscious when people walking by stared, but yesterday, I didn't even notice all those other people, because I was having so much fun with my fiance and you! :)  
I am SO glad we did this session for many reasons, and we truly had a blast! Like Krista had told us before, it is like a "therapy session" especially with the myriad of last minute wedding planning details, it is nice to just forget about everything else and focus on George and I for a day :) 
Thank you SO much and we can't wait to have you shoot our wedding day!!

Choosing Melani and her team to photograph our wedding was literally one of the best decisions we made in wedding planning. To say that she did a great job would be an understatement. I cannot stop looking at the photos that she and her team took. I have lost hours of work productivity because they are so beautiful to look at! They are absolutely perfect and absolutely true to me and my husband's relationship with each other. Aside from the remarkable photos, Melani was a joy to work with. Her energy level is off-the-charts. She always seemed to be in the right place to catch the right shot…even if that mean stealthily zipping across the room! My wedding was also a bit complicated because it was a multicultural wedding, Hindu-Indian and Catholic. She handled this seamlessly. Both of our families loved the pictures and thought she captured the significance of the ceremonies well. That's no easy task, but she definitely delivered. From the very first meeting, Melani was just the nicest and most approachable person. She seemed to really care about getting to know our story and what the wedding would be like. She also had me hooked with words like "lighting assistant." She really takes her job seriously and her passion really comes though in her work. It was really easy to trust her with capturing our memories. I worried about a lot of things on the day of the wedding, but I didn't worry about photography for a second. I felt completely at ease that the photos were going to be fantastic, and I was right! I would entusiastically recommend Melani for brides-to-be.

I can't say enough good things about Melani Lust and her team. From our initially meeting, I knew that Melani was someone who took great pride in her work and was fully committed to capturing the most beautiful pictures for her clients. Leading up to the wedding, she was always touching base with me, ensuring that all the details were in place so we would get exactly what we wanted the day of the wedding. We went back and forth about a day of timeline until it ended up being perfect. The day of the wedding, Melani and her team did not stop for a second, capturing everything with beauty! She was extremely concerned with making sure we got every shot we wanted and even would ask periodically if there was anything in particular we wanted that we hadn't shot yet. Our pictures we absolutely amazing. She has an ability to fall into the background and allow you to be natural and relaxed, creating beautiful shots. We couldn't be happier! Thank you for these amazing memories!

I have used Melani Lust as my photographer for my wedding & other business related events and I would highly recommend her to others. Not only is Melani and her team an absolute pleasure to work with (they are thorough, professional and very responsive to clients), she is also an incredibly talented photographer. I love that my wedding photos look special and different from others I've seen. Melani has a great eye and knows how to set up shots so that they look like they belong in the pages of magazines. If you are in need of a wonderful photographer, I cannot recommend her highly enough.

We don't know where to begin thanking you for what you did for us for our wedding memories. You are a true artist and we are so grateful to have found you. Our photos are even better than what we imagined they'd be - absolutely stunning. Not only is there a photo of almost everyone (which we really appreciated), but you turned them around in a blink of an eye! THANK YOU! Farbod's family, who weren't able to get visas in time for the wedding, were able to feel like they were part of the day, having received them so close to the wedding, they are all priceless. Thank you again for everything! All our love.

Melani Lust Photography will exceed your expectations. My sister and I both got married one summer apart and we both used Melani Lust. She is amazing, professional and one of the kindest people you will ever meet. She is a true artist. She doesn't stop working from the second she arrives to the very end of the wedding day. She captured such beautiful moments of all of our loved ones- and was a joy to work with. In reviewing the photos we become teary with emotion, they bring us right back to that moment. We love her and cannot recommend her highly enough! We will be enjoying these photographs for the rest of our lives. We can't wait to use her again in the future!

You are absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for being with us on our special day. The photographs are remarkable. We are totally blown away. Thank you for capturing these moments. You are the ultimate photographer. You are professional, you are talented, you are kind, and truly you are supportive. Thank you for braving some mayhem of the day, and for helping me to feel so calm at points of chaos. Having these pictures so soon after the wedding helped me feel and experience and enjoy parts of the day that just flew past -- poof. I can hardly explain how much having these moments means to us. Our whole family just loves the photos, so thank you. 
Our deepest thanks,

What a wonderful day it was and you made it a great success for us crystallizing our memories for always. I HAVE TO SAY, you made me look amazing! I look like a model. No kidding. I wish I had you following me around every day. Everyone thought you were so wonderful and exceptionally talented. So unimposing, yet so thorough. You are the best. I really can't thank you enough for all that you did in making my day perfect. On a very sad note, your pictures of me with my Father are treasured by me as he passed away recently. They capture our relationship so perfectly and I look at them daily to see his smiling face. We thank goodness every day that you were our wedding photographer. The pleasure we have had looking at them since our special day is really indescribable. You are really wonderful.

Throughout our celebrations, Melani's energy was unstoppable and her attention to detail was amazing. She truly understood our style and knew exactly how to capture our personalities and the entire feel of the day. Our wedding photos, formal portraits and candid shots are gorgeous and when we look through them we feel as though we are actually re-living the happiness and excitement of our wedding. Melani stayed until the very end of the reception and was sure to capture every special and unique moment. We recommend her 100% and will definitely work with her in the future.

Melani was an absolute pleasure to work with! She is very quick to respond to any questions, is very informative and immediately put both myself and my husband at ease when we first met her. This is extremely important since then you can relax and be yourselves in front of the camera. Melani has a terrific eye and we are super happy with the way all of the pictures turned out! All of our guests were impressed with how attentive she was to everything that was going on and everyone who has seen the pictures thinks she did a terrific job. We would do it all again the same exact way if we had a chance. We would hire her again in an instant and will be recommending her to all of our friends.

Melani photographed our engagement shoot and wedding day and the resulting photos were above and beyond all expectations. She found a way to bring my camera shy husband's real smile out and my heart melts when I see the love she captured in all the photos of us, our family and friends. Melani’s hard work and passion is evident while she works. After our wedding we received many comments from guests and other vendors how the photographer was nonstop throughout the night and it was evident in the results…..every small memory that I have from our wedding night was captured with a perfect picture – that we absolutely cherish.  
Melani and team are an absolute dream to work with!

With friends and family all over the globe, many of them only able to share this important day of ours through photographs, selecting the perfect wedding photographer was extremely important to us. One of the best decisions we made was to use Melani, her enthusiasm, upbeat attitude and listening skills was what sold us. She brought her vitality into every room she entered and her high spirits brought out the best in everyone she photographed. Without being intrusive, she was everywhere! I didn't really know how "everywhere" she was until I saw all of the amazing photographs and our family shared the many "oh my gosh" surprises of her capturing yet another perfect moment! Poignant, moving, expressive, joyful, happy - all the varied emotions and details were photographed to be relived for those would could not attend. We highly recommend Melani Lust Photography.

We wanted to write to thank you for the incredible job you did at our wedding. I cannot tell you how amazing it feels to be brought back into those moments, and more. I am reviewing the photos and I remember exactly how I felt in each of them, but what I didn't see was how the people around me reacted to those moments while I was in them. You have given me a richer experience of a day that was the best day of my life. You made visible that which I didn't know even occurred. You captured expressions that were so full and so rich and made me realize how much my friends and family truly, truly love us. I am so grateful and my family joins in thank you for this archival history.

Melani has great energy. She is upbeat and energetic and committed to delivering on what she's promised. The wedding pictures from her are absolutely lovely. She conducted an engagement setting for us and those photos were amazing. I briefly considered a career in modeling then realized it was just her making me look that good. You should definitely meet with her and talk about your vision for the day to be sure you align on styles. She was a perfect match for what I wanted for my day. We are very happy with having chosen Melani.

I am speechless... I cannot tell you how much I loved having you document our day...these beautiful pictures make the event go from surreal to real. Your pictures are circulating around the world and are causing quite a sensation. I am awed by your work...I honestly have never seen such photographs. Your presence was so unobtrusive, yet you somehow made the day go so smoothly, everything you did, from pulling the thread off my daughter's dress, to popping up everywhere, on chairs, in the balcony, everywhere, was worth every penny and more. You were invaluable to my wedding, I cannot imagine it without you!!!

I always knew that if I got married I desperately wanted Melani to photograph the wedding. Simply put - Melani sees through to the soul and captures it. Her style is beautiful and evocative, timeless yet contemporary. She does what she calls 'creatives' with the couple, where you go somewhere meaningful to the couple and she captures just the two of you there. She is also uncanny at capturing that moment with your grandmother in law at the ceremony or the wonderful body language between you and your father in law as you dance. My mother is notorious for not photographing well - Melani took the best shot I've ever seen of her. As others have said, she has the most incredible energy and a buoyant personality - which makes everything a breeze, especially getting the formal shots and groupings a breeze.
