I cannot say enough positive things about Melissa Jane. I remember first seeing her work at a bridal expo in Eugene, Oregon and falling in love... I knew I wanted her to photograph my wedding right then and there. Her aesthetic is the perfect mix of bohemia and realism, artful and exciting yet approachable and true to everyday beauty... perfect for capturing moments between loved ones!
My plans changed and circumstances called for a private elopement rather than a big ceremony, and I contacted Melissa pretty last minute not expecting much. Jane and the Woods had since moved from Oregon to Arizona and I was pretty sure we weren't going to be able to work out the details from so far away, on such short notice, and with my budget. To my surprise Melissa contacted me the same day with several options and planning the shoot together started immediately. It was so easy, Melissa was available to share ideas through detailed email descriptions and quick responses, even exchanging inspirations on a private Pinterest board.

Before the shoot I was so nervous about being photographed, my husband and I are both pretty camera shy. Rather than feeling like we were sharing a special moment with a random photographer, Melissa made it feel like we were spending it with a friend. Our shoot was directed and posed in a way that felt comfortable, relaxed, and true to who we are and what our relationship means to us. We were both so excited to see our photos and so happy with the results! Honestly, I can't even describe how the pictures make me feel without getting emotional! So I will just stop here, leaving Jane in the Woods Photographie HIGHLY recommended.
