I have never met Melvin before our photo session but when we did, I felt like I just reunited with an old friend. Melvin is such a great guy. Very friendly, humble, yet very professional. He takes his works seriously. You can tell that he is very passionate about photography and respect his clients accordingly. He knows what he is doing at all time. His directions and instructions were well executed. He encouraged us when we started to loose focus. He complimented us when he captured good images even though he did all the works to make us look good. I would really recommend him to just about anyone who is looking for a photographer whether it's for weddings, pre-weddings, parties, concerts, etc. Try this guy and experience a top class service. At the end of the day, I felt like I just made a friend for life not just a one or two time photographer. That's a rare thing to happen in this world. Melvin is one of a kind. My fiance and I are very please to have him, it's our honor to have our pictures taken by him.


We had such an amazing experience with Melvin! Not only is Melvin's talent one of a kind and simply amazing, but he also made us feel so comfortable! He was also great with communication! Planning a wedding can be so hectic, especially when u have a vendor that doesn't answer calls or emails! Not Melvin! He was great! He responded quickly and was awesome about answering all our questions. We are so happy with our engagement photos and cannot wait for our wedding! Melvin Gilbert was amazing! We can not imagine ever using another photographer ever again! Thanks Melvin!


We chose Melvin Gilbert as our wedding photographer because of his talented artistic images, affordability and professionalism. After working with him we knew we made the right decision to hire Melvin Gilbert Photography to be our wedding photographer. His fun loving personality, professionalism, and willingness to go and above to make sure that we have unique and special images to last a lifetime. I highly recommend using Melvin Gilbert for all of your photography needs. He is awesomely talented and great to work with!


QUALITY IS AMAZING! Melvin is extremely passionate about photography, you can feel and experience his passion as soon as you meet him. His perspectives on shots are contemporary, outside the box and creative. Melvin is down to earth, and takes his work seriously. He respected our boundaries with our shots and helped me to get out of myself. I initially felt so anxious and worried about my very first photo shoot, Melvin helped me to relax and have the most fun ever! Thanks so very much Melvin!


LOVE YOUR WORK MELVIN. You are an absolutely gifted photographer and you managed to capture every little detail. You are so easy to work with and so friendly I haven't worked with any other photographer like you, I wish you were based in Paris! Let us know when you are here next you are welcome to stay with Yann and I.


Melvin was a great and professional photographer. He made us feel special, he was always on time, and flexible to work with. If you get the pleasure of working with him you will be able to tell that he truly enjoys & loves photography, and his pictures are a vivid statement. He was always trying to make us feel comfortable and always was asking us what we liked or disliked. He is also very funny, I really love that. He is super patient and he is always looking for the perfect shot and the client best interest. I will definitely work again with him. His pictures will make me relive those special moments on my wedding!


Well... Melvin is great! My wife and I first met Melvin the day of our engagement shoot. He showed up with a smile and camera in hand. We had no idea what to do or how to pose. We did know what style we wanted but we had little to nothing for Melvin to work off of. He started taking pictures and we had fun. Melvin just kept us comfortable, many times just telling to pretend like he wasn't there. So my fiance, at the time, and I started asking each other, "Wonder what Melvin's up to? Too bad he couldn't be here to hang out." After the shoot was done, we were clueless to know what they were going to come out like. Anticipation grew until we finally got to see the pics. WOW! This guy is amazing! We got exactly what we wanted. Our friends and family initially said we paid too much. When they saw the pics they flipped. It was worth every penny! Thanks Melvin. You haven't seen the last of us! I hope you'll want to add baby pics to your blog eventually.


Melvin is Marvelous! I have never met a business person that befriends you instantly (... and over the phone at that). Because of his rapport with my husband and I, the day of the wedding he was able to put our whole wedding party at ease. This in turn, produced photos that were natural, full of life, exciting and absolutely GORGEOUS! In addition, because he was so funny, when we were getting ready to take our group shots, he would say something to make everyone laugh. These were great moments captured. He was so flexible and was more than willing to extend his stay with us because we had time constraints at our wedding venue. Talk about a real life HERO! He also befriended our wedding coordinator so much so, that she had to hire him for her wedding that was soon to follow. I would recommend Melvin to anyone for superior quality, skills, flexibility and value. He is better than a professional, he is YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD PHOTOGRAPHER! We love you Melvin Gilbert!


Melvin Gilbert is extremely easy to work with and produced amazing photos for my husband and I! I highly recommend his services for a bride who's looking for a talented and professional photographer.


Melvin Thank you very much for everything. We loved the pictures & the video! I almost cry! You are very talented & we are so happy & blessed that you are our photographer! thank you again!


This company is WONDERFUL! By the time my wedding was over, they were more than just a vendor, they were friends. They are so easy to get along with which makes it all that easier to work with. In addition to they're excellent service, the pictures were BEAUTIFUL! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.


Melvin is by far the most original, creative photographer I have ever had the pleasure of working with. His professionalism, knowledge, & passion for his craft makes him unique. His products and services are vast and reasonable for the level of perfection and quality. He made my wedding day memorable. My photos are just incredible! He brought out the best out of everyone and everything!


Hire Melvin! He was awesome. He made us feel very comfortable, was professional, fun and you didn't even notice him during the wedding. The pictures we've seen have been awesome. He really catches emotion and everyone at the wedding said how great the photographer was! My mom even wants him to be part of our family. I would hire Melvin again in a second and would highly recommend him for other brides. Thanks again Melvin!


I hired them for my daughter's wedding. It was outside at my ranch with about 250 guests. He brought an assistant and they were both very courteous, professional, patient, and they took more photos then I could have imagined. The price was great and included an engagement session. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a quality photographer. Every photo I have seen thus far is superb and of he highest quality.


Melvin was very responsive to our needs for our wedding. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. Our son is always a little awkward to get to smile for pictures and Melvin took some of the most amazing pictures of him I've ever seen. He really captured each of us wonderfully.


Melvin was very professional and his artistic flare for photography made our photos spectacular. He was easy to work with and went above and beyond to make our wedding a cherished memory. We are grateful for Melvin and could not imagine that day without him. We will treasure our wedding photos and the experience forever. Thank you Melvin.


Melvin Gilbert is a consummate professional and is easy going. We felt like we had known him for years when we had our photo shoot. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I highly recommend Melvin. He's truly a top notch professional photographer that understands and will meet you needs.


Melvin was highly recommended to us by a friend who happened to be our planner as well, and he is great! He will suggest to you what will look good and etc. He will lay down on the ground just to take good shots. I'm so happy we got him. Thanks Melvin!
