I am brand new to this site. I actually just found out about it! I am a very active member on projectwedding.com and I felt the need to rave about the wedding photographer that my fiance and I hired for our destination wedding this November in the Bahamas. Other brides NEED TO KNOW about her!! What an amazing deal we got and I can't even describe how sweet she is!
At first, we were planning a wedding here in our hometown of NY with about 200 guests....budget sheet traveling upwards of $30,000.00. We are both full-time college students (FI in pharmacy school and I am in nursing school) and we are proud parents of a 2.5yr old little boy. So $30 grand on a wedding was not even an option. We explored our options and decided on a destination wedding with just a few guests. Those that we are extremely close with. It sounded better and better to us everyday. So we began to plan...
The first thing we both talked about was photography. It is probably one of the most important aspects of the planning. We want photographs that capture our love in a unique and true way. We wanted the use of natural light and creativity. We wanted photojournalism and most importantly, we wanted a photographer that we could communicate with, that had a great personality so we would feel comfortable with her on our wedding day and one that was able to deliver all of those things without a hitch. I stumbled upon the wedding photos of member "Tovaqt", who is also a friend of mine on project wedding. I literally cried when seeing her photos and I knew it was exactly what we were looking for in a photographer. I contacted Melissa McClure immediately, expecting to get some kind of resonse email about 2weeks later with an astronomical price quote to travel to the Bahamas. Well.................
It was the opposite. The next day, we received a pleasant response! Her cost was LESS than what we had ever thought possible and that price was for all travel and accommodation for her AND her assistant (who is also excellent) to take a 5day cruise with us and our guests to the Bahamas and photograph a BONUS TTD session the day before the wedding and full-day wedding coverage!!!! It simply blew my mind. I thought she was kidding....but she wasn't!
Her cruise is booked and we are all set. My emails to her were replied to almost immediately. We have been unable to meet in person since we are on opposite sides of the US, but between email and facebook, I am in love with her already! She is so sweet and so talented! I cannot wait to see what she will do with our photos on our special day and TTD. I am beyond excited!!!
I can't rave enough. If you are looking for a destination photographer or one in S.Cal, send her an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
and this is her website with her blog: Melissa McClure - Destination And Southern California Wedding Photographer
I will post pics as soon as possible after our wedding for all to see!
