The Wedding Experience
On paper, this is known as our wedding day timeline. Our wedding day timeline is different than the planners timeline. We love working through the timeline with you to make sure that we have all your special request are noted and they are given a time slot in your wedding day.
We have a game plan for EVERY wedding!
If we weren't photographers and filmmakers, we'd probably be planners. We LOVE to chat with our couples to make sure we have all special requests noted before the wedding!
We are BIG planners by nature so wedding prep is BIG for us!
ALL the special moments of your wedding day are so important to you and to US as well!
You are getting MELISSA & ARTURO!
Also being that we are a husband & wife team, you get to work with us! We don't contract out to any other photographers under our name.
The fact that we are a husband & wife team helps MORE than you know!
First, we are a ONE stop shop!
Second, we have already worked together before!
Believe it or not, that can make a difference in how smooth your wedding day goes, if your photographer and filmmaker has worked together. The reason for that is because we share the same space throughout the entire day.
You can book both with us and not have to go find a new another vendor, which we know that it can add stress thinking you need to find yet another vendor.
Ask us about how we love to celebrate our couples anniversaries! It's good! We Promise!

"Art and Melissa were absolutely phenomenal to work with! Always attentive, prompt, professional and they have an eye for detail! From the very first day to the last, they gave us an enjoyable, stress free experience. We absolutely LOVED our pictures and videos! Nothing but 5 stars for this awesome wife and husband duo. Thank you so much Art and Melissa! "
"Melissa and Art made our experience so easy and memorable. They are both passionate on what they do. They truly take memorable shots and create them perfectly to capture that moment. Professional and easy to get along with. Very respectable and appreciative couple. We love you both. Thank you for making our special wedding day perfect. Our friendship will last forever. We highly recommend them for your special event."
"My wife and I feel like Melissa & Arturo were the absolute best. They completely understood the vision we had for the engagement photos and wedding day. Easy to get along with, always professional, positive and friendly. They communicated with us very well and were on top of things. Always making sure that everything was set to how we envisioned. Having another couple who understood the journey me and my wife were gonna go through till the wedding day really helped in a lot of ways to keep us at ease. The photos themselves were beautiful, really showed the essence of our love. They came out truly perfect. We are truly grateful for all the assistance they gave us."
"Melissa & Arturo were our absolutely favorite vendors. They helped us so much along the way. They met with us multiple times, texted us every couple months to make sure we were doing okay and always made us feel like family! Melissa and Arturo made sure we had a photography timeline for the day of the wedding as well as a couple of questionnaires to make sure they met our needs (which the exceeded)! The quality of our pictures were so awesome and the amount of pictures we received was amazing. Cody and I would recommend this wonderful husband and wife duo to everyone! We cannot wait to do our anniversary session with them next year!"
