Below are some rave reviews from her clients:

"Melanie Rapp did a fabulous job photographing our wedding and helping us assemble an incredible album. Her photographs are beautiful and touching. Melanie unobtrusively captured our wedding with stunning clarity and insight. We didn't want to spend a lot of time taking formal photographs, so Melanie very quickly took great shots and we were on our way to enjoy the reception. We were very happy with our proofs and love the images she capture of our wedding day. Working with her before, during, and after the wedding was fun and easy."  - Sarah Anderson

"The pictures are amazing! I took a sneak peak and we loved the album... If I have not said it already, you have truly been a pleasure to work with and your work speaks for itself. We received so many compliments on our engagement photos and guest book. I love how natural the pictures look. You are able to capture them without being intrusive." - Erin Stanley

"I wanted to let you know again how much we love the pictures. They have actually caused quite a bit of a buzz with friends and family talking about how they are 'the best wedding pictures we've ever seen.' Thanks again!" - Andrea B.
