She quickly put us at ease and it felt like we’ve known her for sometime. Her photos, and the experience with her were amazing! We got the pictures so fast and loved the ability to be able to download quickly. Melissa is professional, creative and super sweet! I highly recommend her and can’t wait until our next photo session. Thank you Melissa for capturing a truly special time in our lives. We have stunning photos that we will cherish for a lifetime.”

At the time, I was debating on whether or not I should even get my senior pictures done. My friend talked so fondly of Melissa though, so I decided why not? I am usually one that hates getting my picture taken, but Melissa made it so easy and fun! She chose a beautiful setting on a farm and she had me try out different poses and facial expressions. I was so excited with how they turned out! Thanks to Melissa, she turned it into a really fun experience, and I definitely recommend her to anyone who is camera shy like me.”

“Melissa Knott was awesome for my daughter’s High School Senior Photos.  She worked with my daughter (through several outfit changes) and took many beautiful pictures of her.  Melissa is a very sweet person and she loves pleasing her customers…  I consider her my personal photographer and I will definitely use her in the coming months for my other daughter’s Senior Photo Shoot and hopefully family portraits soon!  My experience with her was top notch and it was a blessing to have found her!”

I highly recommend investing in a photo session with Melissa!”

“I can’t say enough good things about our photograph sessions with Melissa. We are so blessed to have been able to use her for our Fall couples session as well as our engagement photos. She made sure to make us feel comfortable throughout the whole process, from helping us chose the perfect location to helping my very shy husband feel comfortable taking photos. Melissa is very professional and thorough in making sure she captures the perfect photograph. I’ve never received more compliments on our photographs and that is thanks to Melissa’s talent and quality in her work. I can’t wait to have her take our Maternity photos!

I thought these were something that only wealthy people did to portray their family in a certain light; Melissa proved me wrong. On top of her actually being affordable for the average family (non-existent in the Frederick area) she was able to just somehow capture beautiful raw photos of my family. She’s completely unobtrusive and extremely patient, which allows my family to just be ourselves. Somehow, Melissa captures these beautiful, light-filled, emotion-filled moments. These are more than just photos, Melissa has created beautiful time capsules of my family that will last forever. I imagine her portfolio over the years will tell the story of my family, which she has become a part of.”

Her style was so natural and friendly, and her photos captured our personalities and love. Melissa is an AMAZING photographer and we look forward to her capturing special moments in the future! Thank you, Melissa! We are so grateful and happy with the photos!”

Melissa has a such a warm and welcoming approach to working with her clients, and it shows in her images. I have had the pleasure of having Melissa capture some really amazing shots of our family, and I cannot wait until our next session!”
