    Just so Grateful

    Melissa and Chantelle were absolutely fantastic! They spent the whole day taking photos of every moment of my wedding and now I can look back on those photos and relive the best day I’ve ever had.

    Not only are my photos beautiful, but these women are so kind and attentive, I couldn’t believe the attention to detail! They were constantly adjusting things so they looked absolutely perfect in all the photos! They even fanned me and held cold water bottles to my wrists when I started to overheat in the summer sun and my heavy wedding dress.

    We’re so incredibly grateful to have found this company and that we chose them to participate in our special day!!

    Thank you so much for the glowing review Hillary!
    Chantelle and I loved being a part of your day. We loved working with you, Jonathan and your entire wedding party- you all made our job so easy, as you were a fantastic, beautiful (and handsome) bunch to work with!
    We hope that you will enjoy these photographs for many many years to come.
    xoxo - Melissa

    Couldn't have asked for more

    Melissa and Jocelyn shot our wedding in May. They have this incredible ability to anticipate the moments that you will want to look back on, and capture all the little details you missed throughout the busy day. Melissa was always prepared with an array of options and suggestions and knew how to keep the day light and fun throughout the craziness. My husband and I had a rather large wedding party, as well as large families on both sides, but Melissa and Jocelyn knew exactly how to handle all of it and them. I am so happy to have hired Blackbird Photography as our engagement and wedding photographer; we were not disappointed, and I promise, you won’t be either! ♥
