Decent photos. However my sibling has been married for 1.5 years and still no photos. They don’t even have their engagement photos. DO NOT HIRE. 1.5 years is rediculous. She gives them the runaround each time with personal things going on in her life.
If you do go with her make sure you get a contract with a timeline on when they will be done

DO NOT HIRE!! No photos, no communication, no respect. Seven months and counting and no photos...

My husband and I hired Melissa Avey as our wedding photographer in July 1st, 2017. She is the most unreliable, untrustworthy, unprofessional business owner. We have paid in full amount and given her more than enough time to respond and deliver our photos. Melissa would not respond to any of our messages, via email, IG, DM’s, txt’s and she would change her business phone number without notifying us. After many weeks turned into months of waiting; she would reply vaguely; “by end of week” or “as soon as possible”. Now, almost 7months past our wedding, there is no “beautifully finished gallery, a keepsake box, or a USB drive” -(Advertised on her website) Now, what is left is a broken contract, and promises. We will take legal actions towards her.

Do not choose this Photographer. My husband and I chose Melissa as her quality of photos were great and pricing was reasonable. Little did we know that the experience moving forward would have been a nightmare. We got married May 20 2017 and we still do not have our final product; when we do get any photos it is just a handful once a week. Melissa's lack of professionalism, lack of communication, lack of value for her clients and overall integrity of her business is in question. We are so disapoointed as we have tried several times to communicate with her and she chooses to not reply. When she does reply, it is when she feels like it and creates a "plan" which never happens. I had a Medical Emergency earlier this year, I lost my vision- completely! Melissa was well aware of this matter and should know that as a bride, having her capture our Wedding Day would mean that much more to me! At this time Melissa cannot be trusted and we are so upset with how she has handled our business/money with us, Moving foward we are pursuing Legal Action and reporting Melissa to the PWPC. My hope is that no other person, couple or family will have to experience this horrible service the way we have. Please read all reviews, not just the positive ones on Social Media.

Photographer Melissa Avey says "Erin and Neal had a beautiful and love-filled spring wedding in the small and charming town of Elora, Ontario at the Wellington County Museum. The wedding ceremony was inside of a cozy barn with twinkling lights and the people they love the most, followed by a fabulous reception dinner indoors."
