Pros: Everything!
Cons: Couldn't take them home with us ;)
We are so happy with our decision to go with Mel and Rob for our 5/5/15 wedding. From our very first Skype meeting with them, we knew they were the photographers for us. We were hooked after seeing all of their beautiful photographs, and really hooked- line and sinker, after meeting them. They are the whole package. They are so professional, friendly, helpful, and creative. During the getting ready process I could hardly tell Mel was taking photos, which was what I was nervous about. I didn't wa

Pros: lovely and easy to work with, fun individuals, good direction when needed
Cons: none
This review is long overdue! How long? We celebrated our one year anniversary last month! Sorry Mel and Rob! Anyways, you cannot go wrong with ShoeBox Photography. Melinda Skyped with me and Eric to go over what we wanted to capture and style for our wedding. She walked us through what to expect for the day and worked with us on what to start with in order to get the best lighting and how to finish. We were so happy with the finished products and we had a great time working with them. Mel and R

Melinda and Rob at ShoeBox Photography are fantastic! When we had our first meeting via Skype we knew right away that they were the perfect photographers to capture our wedding. Planning a destination wedding can sometimes be difficult but ShoeBox helped the planning go smoothly, especially with their quick responses. On the big day, they made everyone feel comfortable and captured the raw emotions of joy and love and even the excitement at the reception! Most wedding photos are staged and posed

Cons: NONE
Rob & Melinda captured our day perfectly and beautifully; no single detail, person or emotion was overlooked. Melinda & Rob made me feel comfortable from the first moment we facetimed! I loved the fact that I could have a face-to-face conversation with them, and immediately saw how sincere, professional, and passionate they were as photographers, but also fun, loving and down to earth, which was important to me that they could blend in with my group and make them feel at ease, laugh wi

Pros: Puts you at ease, become part of your group, fun to be with, great shots, powerful images, great people, very high quality, great turnaround
Cons: none!
Finding the right photographer can be a very stressful moment. As I was browsing through websites and reviews, I found Shoebox matched our style and my vision and figured we'd see how they interact with us. Within hours of sending a request, Melinda contacted me and I fell in love :) She made me feel comfortable right from the start and I knew her and Rob would be perfect for us. We still had a couple of months to go before our big day, but I felt as though I could call or email Melinda any time

Pros: Everything about them is perfection!
Choosing Mel + Rob was one of the best decisions for our wedding! Amazing is an understatement! The communication with Mel was amazing. After my first inquiry she asked me to Skype with her and I knew she was special, vendors are always so busy they prefer to email. We skyped and discussed all the important things including budget and she definitely accommodated my budget as much as she could.  They day of the wedding we had a few hiccups the ceremony started an hour late and one of my guest was

Pros: Communicative, Prompt, Professional, Fun, Experienced, High-Quality
Cons: none
I came upon ShoeBox almost accidentally after having looked through the local / in-house photographers' portfolios in Punta Cana.  I had almost given up on the hope of having beautiful portfolio of my wedding pictures when I realized Rob & Mel existed.  The day Melinda responded to my inquiry was probably one of the rare highlights during the stressful destination wedding planning process.  After conducting  a Skype meeting, I knew that I had nothing to worry about in the photography departm
Pros: Professional, comfortable, prompt, AMAZING!!!!
Cons: Nothing
We used Shoebox Photography after another photographer that we really wanted was booked and recommended them... I'm so glad she did! Rob and Melinda are amazing at what they do!   First off, the correspondence leading up to the wedding day is wonderful! Melinda does a fantastic job at responding in a timely manner and answering all of the questions you may have! I tend to be very OCD (as many brides) and through each email I felt more and more confident that Melinda would make our album perfec

Planning a wedding is never an easy task and planning a destination wedding is even harder. You lose control over your choices and you definitely have to roll with the punches. One aspect of our wedding that was seamless and easy was our photography. We shopped around on many different websites and we were very disappointed with the quality of photography services in the Dominican Republic. We toyed with the idea of bringing our own photographer from Ontario to the Dominican but the cost involve
