Fun and easy to work with

Took lots of great photos but were never in the way or noticeable; understood what we wanted in the photos and delivered

The absolute best!!!

Wow. It is hard to put into words how impressed I was with Shoebox Photography. Last year when I had my first call with Mel I was in the early stage of planning our backyard wedding. I had no real idea of what I was after or what the day would look like. Mel actually helped me plan out the day as we were discussing the photo timeline and that timeline was what I would use for the rest of my planning. She was so amazing over the phone I immediately new it was the right fit. I felt comfortable and at ease right away. It felt like Rob and Mel were family and our wedding. They fit right in and didnt miss a single special moment. Mel even got right under my skirt to bustle my dress during the reception (talk about going above and beyond)! They dealt with my now husband's adversion to photo portraits like champs and made sure we still got some beautiful shots! :) The photos are beyond amazing. I could not have dreamed of anything better. They documented our day perfectly and I will treasure them forever. I would recommend Mel and Rob to anyone and everyone. They are so easy to connect with and are so respectful of your vision and what you are after. I feel so lucky that I found their website while reseaching online. It is hard to imagine the day without them! Thank you Shoebox Photography - I will forever be grateful

Working with Mel and Rob was a dream. My husband and I were so comfortable and the experience was an absolute pleasure.

We received our photos in a timely manner and they were absolutely perfect. I cannot recommend Shoebox Photography enough!

Above and beyond

Melinda and Rob were absolutely incredible. They were always very responsive and professional, but they did it all with a friendliness that usually only comes from years of shared memories. They went beyond their role as photographers and helped with tasks and roles on the day of, and everything went so smoothly because of them. I can't recommend this amazing pair enough!

Choosing Melinda & Rob to photograph our wedding was the easiest and best decision we ever made! Not only are they extremely talented photographers, they are the sweetest couple you will ever meet. They made us feel so comfortable and blended right in with our guests. When we received our photos, we couldn't stop looking at them. They truly know how to capture every special moment. We will be forever grateful for how beautiful our wedding pictures turned out. Thank you so much Mel & Rob!!

ShoeBox was one of the Photographers recommended by our wedding planner and after looking at their style and sample online we picked them. We did our engagement photos through a friend of theirs as our schedule was tight and they were out of town on the weekend we had to take them. However, on our wedding day, they were amazing. I was quite ill with the stomach flu so I wasn't terribly helpful and was feeling terrible but it didn't show at all in the photos. They captured every photo we wanted and they came out flawless. I'm extremely happy with our photos (though I wish I had more, but I wasn't feeling great and wasn't up to more) and would recommend them. Small criticism is I had no idea how long until I'd get my photos, but I received them all in just over two months.

Rob and Mel are fantastic! They are professional, knowledgable, and great at making everyone comfortable. The pictures they take are gorgeous, they capture beautiful moments and compliment each other perfectly-- capturing those moments from every angel without getting in each other's way. We're very grateful and so glad we worked with them. We'll have our memories from that special day forever!

The best decision we made for that day was to hire Mel and Rob. They are the BEST! Right from the start they made us feel comfortable and it felt like they were part of the wedding party. I felt an instant connection with them. Our wedding picture are absolutely amazing. All of them are perfect, well taken and so romantic! We have some much appreciation and love for them. Trust me you can't go wrong with them and it will be the best decision you took for your special day!

What can I say, these guys are a dream team. My husband and I are super awkward in front of a camera, and definitely not model material! However our photos are an absolute dream. I honestly can't believe how good I look. (I think my hubby is pretty hot, so awkward or not , I always think he looks good!).

My hubby said he loved Rob's sense of humour and I have to say - Melinda is great at handling tough situations. We did a romance session with a few days after the wedding, and being the last night of the vacation, my husband tired and in a bad mood due to a foot injury earlier in the day. Melinda handled it SO well and convinced him to proceed with the session.

Rob and Mel are so fun, and their personalities play off of each other perfectly so you get a great mix of fun and romantic shots. When I started to stress on the day of the wedding because we were running behind, Melinda was super reassuring and helped me chill out. The romance session at Macao Beach was also a lot of fun, it was nice to get off the resort and see a different area of Punta Cana. It was a lot more relaxed and fun, I'm glad we got to spend that extra time together (despite a grumpy hubby!). I'm so glad she was able to squeeze us in, because I only decided on it a few days prior to the wedding. We also got fantastic teasers from the wedding within a few days, which was perfect because I had an unplugged ceremony and implemented a social media sharing lockdown until we could share some professional pics first. Team ShoeBox 100%, you will NOT be disappointed! I only wish we thought to get a pic with them!
