Photographing Since 2007
I received my first professional camera for my 17th birthday and since then I have been hooked, I did a photographic course when I was 18 and worked under a well known wedding photographer for a few years, Since then I have been pursuing my passion for photography over the years and building on my experience, I have photographed for events, weddings, pregnancy, newborn, modeling, family shoots, sports and racing. My favorite thing to do is capture the pure emotions of love and happiness.
It was a fun shoot you made us feel happy and captured the whole time beautifully, you are a relaxed photographer that gets the shots and I am truly happy with my photos
During the time Melissa contracted to my company she favored me with a private shoot at my home and it turned out to be a wonderful series of tasteful photographs that I used to upgrade my online profile as well as I was able to use her pictures as signature photographs for my company website and my company newsletters. Thank you!
I can say that i had a lot of fun doing photo shoots and i felt relaxed,confident and sexy.it was something i can look back to and i would deffintely do another and reccommend her to others. 🙂
I shot with Melissa on two occasions now and really enjoyed it. It was the first time Melissa worked alone with a male model and although it was freezing cold we had a fun shoot. She made me feel at ease throughout the shooting process. I recommend her as a tog to anyone. michal
Mel is an awesome photographer and person. Sessions are fun and natural 🤩 Lilly and I had a great time on our shoot, thank you for beautiful pictures!
One of the best in the business. Melissa takes the time to make sure every photo is perfect. Extremely impressed with her work.
I would highly recommend MCD Photography. Melissa is fantastic and her work is always done to perfection. Done many photo shoots with her and she is an absolute pleasure to work with.
Friendly and efficient service! Good communication
Had our engagement shoot with Melissa Hofmann and was totally worth it. She is very creative, patient and knows the good spots! Her rates are also very good.
