Melanie and Shawn were fantastic on our wedding day. We were so happy we chose them to be our photographers. We were from out of town, but from the moment I contacted Melanie she was super helpful providing me with all the information I needed. On the day of the wedding they helped keep everyone organized and made everyone feel comfortable getting photographed. Melanie knows exactly what angle and lighting to use to make everyone look amazing. I love how her photos captured our personalities and did not seem set up. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for top notch quality and service. Thank you! We will cherish the photos of our day for the rest of our lives.

We highly recommend Melanie and Shawn after they captured our special day July 10th in Summerland at Heaven's Gate Estate Winery. They really made us feel comfortable and calm during the entire experience. Our photos turned out to be so amazing...and they had their work cut out for them (my husband)! We had such a great time with these two. They kept us laughing and enjoying every moment. Thank you Melanie and Shawn!!

Choosing wedding photographers can be a challenging and rather daunting task. I spent hours researching online, talking with friends and meeting with photographers. After some time, I found Artistic Moments online and from the moment we met Melanie, we knew we wanted her to be part of our wedding day. Melanie was easy to communicate with, very flexible with her schedule, incredibly reliable, and made us feel comfortable from the beginning. We started with an engagement session and we had a blast! We did silly things, laughed and laughed, and most importantly, captured many gorgeous moments to cherish for the rest of our lives. After this fun afternoon we were more confident than ever that we had made the PERFECT choice for us! Melanie spent a lot of time with me planning out the fine details of our wedding day photos. Both her and Shawn went to the locations for our ceremony and reception as well as the formal photo locations to scout things out just to be sure they were prepared. They were incredibly professional with our family as well as our guests. In fact, many people at the reception commented on how beautiful our engagement photos were that we had displayed. After the wedding, I could hardly wait to receive the photos from Melanie. I have to say, when we got them, I could not stop looking at them over and over and over again! They are truly a work of art. In fact, friends who were not able to attend all said they that got a feel for exactly what our wedding day was like through the photographs. Melanie and Shawn are fabulous and we would not hesitate to have them take photos for us again. I would strongly recommend you contact them, set up a time to meet and I know you will love them as much as we did!

Melanie and Shawn did a fantastic job of capturing our wedding day. When we looked at our wedding photos (delivered to us only 6 short weeks after our wedding!) we both agreed that they were not only beautiful to look at, but that they "felt" like us. When shopping around for photographers I distinctly remember feeling concerned that we would not be able to relax in front of the camera, that we would not look like ourselves. I met with many photographers and Melanie stood out from the crowd. Not only was she courteous and professional in our emails, phone conversations and meeting, she was someone I knew that I wanted to work with. I trusted her - and knew that she would get the best out of us. And, together with Shawn, she did. We LOVE our wedding photos: they are romantic; they are fun; they are beautiful; and - most importantly - they look like us! It really was a pleasure to spend our wedding day being photographed by Melanie and Shawn. Their calm and easy going manner, together with their sense of humour and their willingness to do something a little "outside of the box" makes them an excellent team. The images they captured from our wedding day will be cherished for years to come. Without hesitation we recommend Artistic Moments Photography to anyone who is looking to capture a sense of romance and authenticity on their wedding day.

We hired Melanie and Shawn to capture memories of our family reunion in Naramata, and they more than exceeded our expectations. They are both such nice people, so personable, and they had the innate ability to engage even our youngest grandchildren, ensuring a successful photo shoot. From the first email contact with Melanie, right through to receiving the finished pictures, all went smoothly and efficiently. They went above and beyond the call of duty, made it a fun experience for us all, and we were so happy to have chosen them You can't go wrong!

I have had the wonderful opportunity to have Melanie and Shawn out to do family pictures twice. They were absolutely amazing and captured some very precious family memories. We will definitely have them again.

Amazing!! We had an engagement session with Melanie and Shawn which was a highlight of our engagement!! It was a ton of fun and they were totally open to any crazy ideas we (I) had! Shawn even hoisted my butt into a tree for very cool "tree climbing" photos. They are both so friendly and fun that they make anyone feel comfotable. My face hurt by the end of the session from too much laughing!!!! The photos were really beautiful and the worst part was trying to pick which ones to print since they were ALL so amazing!

We had Melanie and Shawn do our engagement and wedding photos. They took the awkwardness out of having to pose for pictures, especially because we had no idea what we were doing!! They really captured "us" and a lot of other fantastic moments.
