Melinda & Rob with Shoebox Photography were truly amazing for our special day in paradise! When I first contacted them through email, they were very responsive and thorough with answers to my questions. She did not pressure us into making a decision right away and was respectful of our budget. Fast forward to our special day- the couple was so key in keeping the morning (for our wedding) rolling so we could be on time and not miss that beautiful sunrise! The couple caught every important moment on our wedding day and with such ease. We did not feel overwhelmed or bombarded with cameras. It was nice to have Rob there to shoot photos of the men getting ready while they still felt at ease. I will share two tear jerking moments for me while looking at our final gallery- Melinda had caught a moment between our wedding decorator and I- that I had no idea she even saw much less caught on camera and the second moment was my 10 year old brother tearing up after his newly married big sister gave him a hug after the ceremony. It meant so much to me to look at those photos because the moments on your special day go by so fast that sometimes you need a photo to remind you just how sweet it truly was.On to our romance session-My husband and I say often that we are so thankful that we scheduled it a few days after the wedding because it gave us time to let moments and memories soak in from our special day but still allow us to get dressed up again and take more pictures. We jammed out with her and felt so relaxed and in the moment for our sunset pictures. We remember every second of those moments just holding on to one another as a newly married couple. Melinda and Rob are both very kind, genuine, family oriented people that have incredible talent. The monetary value to comes with their services is truly worth every penny because they gave us so much more than incredible photos. We are glad to call them friends for life!
Melinda was absolutely the best! She simply went above and beyond to make sure that we had beautiful wedding pics. Could not have asked for anyone better to capture our special day :) We also had a romance photoshoot session the day after the wedding. It was the best decision we ever made! We absolutely love the pictures we took that day, as well as the wedding day.
Mel and Rob were great at making us feel very relaxed and comfortable on our big day! Our photos exceeded our expectations and they were amazing at capturing beautiful candid moments of ourselves and our guests!!
Melinda and Rob were a complete pleasure to work with. Their incredible eye for beautiful shots is what initially drew me to them, but they're also the sweetest, most down to earth couple around. Not only did they go above and beyond their photographer duties (Mel helped me get into my dress) but our photos are a complete dream! Thank you Shoebox - you two are the best! Xo
Hiring Rob and Mel was the best decision I had made! They captured every single detail and our emotions on our special day and.. I was shocked of how the photos we had received!! We received HUNDREDS of photos and each one of them are absolutely breathtaking. I know choosing a photographer to capture your special could be very difficult but trust me Rob and Mel's work are so beautiful, you would not regret your decision. Check out there Facebook and you would understand what I meant when I say there pictures are breathtaking! They are a wonderful couple who are very easy going, calm, down to earth, lots of fun and of course professional! We received so many compliments on our photos and I cannot stop looking at the photos :) We had a destination wedding in DR, so if you are getting married in Punta Cana you would save yourself a ton of money to fly them because they are in DR at certain months in the year! Thank you Mel and Rob for capturing our special day! xoxo
Mel and Rob were so lovely to work with! They were fun and professional and made the whole group feel so comfortable. Many of my guests commented on how seamlessly they blended into the crowd and how approachable they were. We were so lucky to find them, they kept us on track and made sure to check into the during the day to ensure that we got all the photos that we wanted. I would recommend them to anyone :) Oh and the pictures I have seen so far are stunning!
There are certain moments in your life where you wish you could relive over and over even as time goes by. Mel and Rob have been able to do this for us. They captured our wedding day in an essence that I can't really put into words. My heart is with them always. Thank you for being so spectacular and phenomenal!. Thank you for the humility you project with your talents. The best of the best! I could never say that enough xoxo
Melinda is absolutely amazing ! I have only done my engagement photos with her so far but the results from that I can not wait until the wedding day. I have 100% faith in her and her style and love that it is one thing that I completely do not have to fret about !
Mel and Rob were lovely to work with. From the first time we sat down, we knew our senses of humour would work well together. They made us feel totally comfortable and making our wedding party laugh came easy to them. They captured the true energy of the day! We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for awesome photographers that don't take themselves too seriously while still producing professional results.
We loved working with Mel and Rob and have no complaints. From reaching out to them for the first time, to our Skype meeting, to the in person meeting, to the wedding day. They were on top of it, professional, and friendly the whole way through. I didn't create a timeline or have a shot list, but I knew it would all be taken care of. During our meeting Mel was creating a timeline and during the wedding she gave us all the direction we needed, and made sure we were on track. I've already seen several of the photos, and they are out of this world beautiful. I can't wait to see the rest. I have nothing but positive things to say about this beautiful photography couple. They are at the top of professionalism, funny, friendly, and creative. They come highly recommended!
