My wedding photographer, Melissa Korta, of Contemporary Captures Photography, is the best wedding photographer I have ever worked with. I had been in a few of my friends weddings over a couple years before mine and I realized that a good photographer can make or break your whole day. I had the pleasure of meeting Melissa Korta when she shot the wedding of my best friend. I loved her attention to detail, the pictures were amazing, but most importantly she was a joy and pleasure to work with and be around. I booked her immediately after my friends wedding. She made everyone at my wedding feel comfortable and made me, the bride, feel like I was the most special and beautiful bride she had ever seen. Oh, and did I mention my pictures are incredible!!!

Melissa and her team were amazing. They not only captured my day perfectly, they jumped in and were a vital part of my wedding day team. She was able to capture not only the images of my day, but the emotions as well. From the wedding itself to the gorgeous album we received afterwards, I am 100% happy and beyond thrilled with my choice of Contemporary Captures Photography

Seriously the best photographer anyone could ask for. From engagement shoot to full wedding day, Melissa and her crew at Contemporary Captures went well above and beyond our expectations. Melissa’s personality is amazing and her creativity is unbelievable. If you’re looking for a professional, fun, energetic, flexible, creative and amazing photographer, Melissa is your girl!

It’s been a month since our wedding, and looking back, I can’t believe how fortunate we’ve been to have found Melissa. Her work speaks for itself. Our wedding photos are beautiful, truly inspired, and completely capture the best aspects of our day and night. I now know why having a great wedding photographer is important. And while that should be the most important aspect of working with a wedding photographer- the final product- I feel we were truly blessed to have Melissa.
Honestly, I’m almost embarassed to admit that due to my own shortcomings as a bride, wedding day was pretty chaotic, a lot was left until the last minute, and I kinda had a nervous breakdown for about an hour after the ceremony. I didn’t have a maid of honor and often my mom was tying up loose ends, and for hours, I had Melissa, who graciously, naturally, and fairy-god-motherly assumed the role of bride caretaker. She was wonderful. She has a great sense of humor. She’s kind and empathetic. These are wonderful qualities to have in a person so involved in such a big day. I like to think her work is a reflection of so much more than her talent, but instead her whole person. I guess I’ve already made it clear I wholeheartedly endorse Contemporary Captures. Aside from my groom, it might be the best decision I made for our wedding. I wish the same for any bride.
