Melissa is a very talented photographer.

She exceeded our expectations in all areas - though most especially with her willingness to spend the weekend with us capturing moments. The quality of her pictures are incredible and her ability to coordinate and make it all happen - exceptional! She truly captured our wedding so beautifully. We love all of the pics and especially love the ones of all of our friends and family - the best part is - she's able to get all of the shots subtly. Somehow she blended in and people didn't even know she was there. Amazing.

We loved working with Melissa so much that we are also having her create our wedding photo album along with 4 other albums for our parents.

Thank you Melissa - it was so great to work with you.

Melissa was very easy to work with and made us feel very comfortable during all of our sessions. We had very little experience posing in front of a camera but she helped direct us when we really needed it. Our photos turned out very natural, like we actually knew what we were doing! She went above and beyond our expectations. We had a very unique situation where we had to do an early (but very important) civil ceremony and she did not hesitate in agreeing to help shoot this for us in addition to the engagement shoot, ceremony and reception, which we are so grateful for. It rained on our wedding day, but Melissa was already prepared with matching clear umbrellas for our entire wedding party! We finally received all of our photos and we are sooo happy!

Melissa was excellent from start to finish and provided and excellent array of products and services. She was incredibly friendly and was willing to accommodate our needs to make everything perfect. She took the time to get to know us and reviewed potential locations and the wedding venue prior to our big day which made everything run very smoothly. On our wedding day she was very professional and efficient. We were also repeatedly told by all the guests that they thought Melissa was wonderful and she was able to capture some wonderful candid shots without being intrusive which was great. I would definitely recommend Melissa to anyone looking for a photographer.

I am so thankful Melissa was able to photograph our wedding! She has an incredibly creative eye and her attention to detail is absolutely impeccable. She is able to recognize what looks good (and also what does't) and gives you helpful feedback in the moment, preventing a photo that would otherwise be perfect except for THAT little detail that ruined it. Melissa is a brilliant communicator, and is able to articulate directions clearly, gently, with humour and an ever-present smile. She has tons of ideas to make sure your wedding photos highlight all of the details that made your day unique. When I look at our photos, I am taken back to our wedding day in an instant, thanks to the moments and emotions Melissa was able to recognize and so skillfully document. Melissa has a priceless sense of humour that not only calms your nerves, it also adds a ton of fun to your day! Thank you, Melissa and BAKE Photography, for capturing memories that we will cherish forever!

Melissa of Bake Photography was simply fantastic. She is an exceptional talent and we cannot recommend her highly enough. The experience of working with her was a delight and the results were far beyond what we had hoped for. I encourage anyone looking for a fun, creative, and professional photographer to contact her! You will not be disappointed!

Melissa is absolutely, 100% amazing! We were so nervous getting our photos done, and she did everything in her power to make our dream photos come true (without being a photo-zilla) for our engagement shots and big wedding day.
Melissa is very personable, hard-working, attentive to the small details, creative with her photography ideas, and overall a genuine and beautiful person. She picked the perfect lighting and communicated to us what would work best with our photos, while working with the spots we requested for particular photos. She also made for sure to arrange times photography so that we could enjoy our day and have a glass of bubbles, which was greatly appreciated. Lastly, our biggest fear of getting a wedding photographer was having too many posed photos, but Melissa approached our wedding like a photojournalist, and she caught the most candid, precious photos we will cherish forever.
We would recommend her to anyone, we are over-the-moon happy to have had her apart of our wedding day, and we hope to have her capture more moments of our life in the future :)

A year ago this week, my wife Catherine and I got married, and Bakephotography captured it all perfectly for us. While we depended on several wonderful service providers to make our special day happen, Bakephotography was the MVP.

Melissa Baker is an absolute pro at capturing everything you want captured. She made the pictures of us with our wedding party look like something out of a vanity fair shoot. She managed to get the post ceremony family pictures done in no time flat while still expertly executing the comprehensive shot list. She's great at managing people in distracting situations.

During the reception, she didn't miss a moment. We've looked at our pictures a hundred times in the last year, and I have to tell you… the story is all there… every tear, every smile, every hug, every unfortunate dance move…. Its almost photo journalistic.

We're not the only one that loved the pictures… Wedding Bells magazine liked them enough to print some of them in their recent fall weddings issue. Check it out

Bakephotography is a class act. Courteous, professional, and comprehensive. And, if that's not enough, Melissa and her staff are also some of the coolest and funnest people your likely to meet.

Melissa, of Bake Photography, was absolutely amazing! Her quality of service and professionalism was above and beyond what we expected.

We were nervous about our complimentary engagement shoot as we had no prior experience posing for a professional photographer - but our worries were quickly put aside as Melissa made us feel extremely comfortable in front of her lens. She has an eye for the perfect backdrop that is inspiring and her end product photos are even more spectacular.

She responds to emails and texts in a timely manner and offers advice and guidance when needed. Come the big day, she is on time and well prepared. Her "day of" wedding questionnaire puts every bride at ease as it lists out every item (and more) that anyone would want to immortalize on a wedding day.

Melissa is personable and exudes a warmth that just makes you love her! Any couple would be lucky to have her capture their special day.

Bake Photography was recently the professionals used for our son and daughter in-law's wedding photos. The quality of service, the professionalism and the overalls experience was fantastic. Melissa and her colleague were masters at capturing the true feeling of the event in such a great way along with being so friendly and helpful. Although we were sure the finished product was going to be wonderful, we were still blown away when it was all put together. The story that these photos tell will put smiles on our faces for many years to come.

Thanks Bake Photography!

Melissa was super fun and friendly, as well as considerate in finding what would work best for us. She delivered us so many good photographs, it was hard to choose our favourites. Great work Melissa!
