Wedding Love

I loved working with Katya! She was amazing not only in the work she did for me, the pictures I mean, but she was amazing at keeping in touch. I reached out to her probably 20 times and not once did I get a bad response! She's very good at getting to know her clients and takes the time that you deserve to have. She is artistic and is very good at capturing the candid shots, which are some of my favorites. She listens to everything you want and makes sure you are 110 percent satisfied with her work. She is a wonderful photographer and a wonderful person! I would recommend her to any and all of my friends.


Wedding Love

We decided to have a destination wedding in the Outer Banks and decided to have professional pictures taken. Since the first initial conversation with Katya after reviewing online her pictures and website and discussing with her what I wanted to have at our wedding she was so wonderful. She gave me advice on places to have our wedding in the Outer Banks. She got to know my husband and I on a personal level and was able to make our wedding day magical. Katya took wonderful, beautiful pictures of our special day and we will always have memories to look back on for years to come. If you are looking for a photographer to capture memories that will last a lifetime, then call Katya Melvin Photography, I promise you will love her caring and professionalism and the great gift that God has given her in her profession. Thank you Katya for everything and for the awesome experience in working with you! Love always. Chuck and Teresa Kessler

Wedding Love

Katya was an angel of a human being who brought real enthusiasm to our wedding on the beaches of Corolla. She had all the poses and included each member of the wedding party. When choosing a photographer, I looked at all of the photographers’ websites and yes many of them could take a picture, but Katya's photos looked magical and different somehow. I was absolutely delighted I chose her. Her customer service is OUTSTANDING. She was very responsive and joyous. She saw my husband and I through every part of the wedding from texts before hand to phone calls after. She kept in email contact during the photo processing progress and then sent a lovely package of discs with the photos. She also posted the photos on an online service so family abroad could see them as soon as they were done. I cannot recommend Katya and Awesome Shots enough. Please check out her website to see what I'm talking about! Allison
