about what I do and how I do it

Melissa Davis has an uncanny ability to capture the essence of absolutely any moment. Viewers of her photographs immediately experience an emotion, which can be challenging to accomplish in today’s media-dominated society. In her work for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, she’s done an incredible job illustrating the bonds between dogs and their handlers. Her photos are creating and compelling, and able to be used in all of our marketing materials. They allow potential donors and volunteers to better relate to our mission – which ultimately enables us to change more lives. We’re grateful to have Melissa on the Guiding Eyes team, and I would recommend her to absolutely anyone.


Not only did the pictures that she took of my granddaughter come out, but she also has an eye for the really unique photos. The one of a kind ones, you love to show every one. Melissa is the best photographer I know. We only use Melissa for our family and church photographer.


Best photographer ever! Every time I turned around she was there, but at the same time never “in the way”. She kept up with me, even as I was running around! ;). She completely understood my vision for the wedding; we had so many fun shots with our wedding party, as well as intimate shots with just us. She made me feel completely comfortable and relaxed the entire day! If you want a photographer who will make your day completely personalized and care about every single detail, call her!


Melissa is the best photographer ever!!! She does all of our pics personally and professionally! She also sets up a photo day and donates the fees to our charity! You couldn’t ask for a nicer more professional person to do your photos! Animals, family or any other type of photos Melissa is your gal!!! I will never use anyone else for any photos I need!! Thanks Melissa your the best!!!


Our special day will never be forgotten thanks to all of the beautiful moments that were captured by Melissa J Davis Photography!  Our memories are preserved in quality products that we will always cherish.  Melissa was professional and enthusiastic about every detail on our wedding day.  She was a joy to work with and comes highly recommended from this happy couple!!


The best studio and photographer I have seen in Hampton Roads and Virginia! Melissa brings professionalism, knowledge, creativity and fun to her photo shoots. The quality of her work is exquisite. I strongly recommend her for your next photo event!


My wife and I had a dream wedding on the beach in April of 2012. Melissa helped to ensure that it was picture perfect and something we can show off for the rest of our lives. She showed up early for the wedding to make sure the angles and area for the wedding was perfect. She gave us great advice ahead of time on how to stand and for placement during our wedding to make sure we had the best photos possible while in a dynamic outdoor environment. She was discreet during the wedding but still had amazing pictures of my wife and I. After our wedding she took more great pictures of the wedding party. We were on a very limited time frame and she managed to meet and exceed all our needs. We were able to view and sort through our pictures in just a few day.  Overall we would rate our satisfaction as very pleased and would highly recommend Melissa J Davis Photography.


Melissa J Davis Photography is amazing. I was in desperate need of a photo shoot for our artists in Renaissance Movement Music and we couldn’t find anyone. I saw Melissa’s work from a friends family pics she recently did and I was blown away! We quickly scheduled a shoot with her and were beyond amazed at her professionalism, creativity, and editing! Plus the turnaround was fantastic! No complaints, all excellent stuff!! Hire hire hire!!!
