Customer Testimonials

  • Adam and I were married a year ago and when we look back at our photographs taken by Red Door Photography, it feels like it was just yesterday. Melissa’s professionalism and creativity captured all of our memories in such a distinctive way. The day was perfect and it was definitely one less thing to stress about knowing Melissa was our photographer. A lifetime of memories we have thanks to Red Door Photography!

    Thank you so much,

    Rachel Musani

  • Thanks Melissa for doing a great job on Brody’s Baptism on such short notice. You were very professional and laid back in our poses which we loved! The pictures turned out beautifully and it was a pleasure to work with you!

  • What makes Melissa Marshall an outstanding photographer is her professionalism and versatility. She has a keen eye for finding the best possible pictures in any setting. Whether sitting in my living room or walking around a petting zoo with my son, she is always able to capture the most precious moments. I have had the pleasure of knowing Melissa for several years and I am always amazed at how she keeps adding new ideas and techniques to her repertoire. I also collect the cards that she sends because they are pieces of art, not just pictures. I wouldn’t think of asking anyone else to take my pictures because I know I am getting quality keep sakes.

    Amanda McIvor

  • Melissa’s beautiful photography has captured our family through loving candids and artistic settings. She designed settings that are welcoming to both our newborn daughter and two year old son. Melissa’s photos are displayed throughout our home. She has designed creative birthday invitations, holiday cards and a coffee table book that captures interest from all of our guests. We will treasure these photos always and will continue to use Melissa for all of our family photo shoots. Thank you once again!

    Cheryl & James Hunter

  • Melissa has a unique ability to beautifully capture all the most precious moments in my children’s life. She takes pictures where my children can have fun so that the pictures always come out so natural. Nothing ever looks forced and there are never any tears!

    Michelle Morton

  • I first met Melissa two years ago when I was planning my wedding. Both my engagement & wedding photos turned out fantastic and Melissa’s laid back yet professional approach made her easy to get along with and enjoyable to work with. After the birth of my son, Hunter, I immediately called Melissa to take advantage of her Growth Package for newborns. Not only did the pictures turn out amazing, the birth announcements that she designed were absolutely beautiful and were a huge hit with my family & friends. I am always amazed at how Melissa manages to not only capture Hunter’s image, but to also capture his developing personality. Melissa is an incredibly talented, creative photographer whose passion for her work is evident in every photo she takes. I would highly recommend her to others and I am looking forward to continuing to work with Red Door Photography in the future.

  • Melissa,

    I just wanted to thank you again for the pictures, they are so perfect. The more I look at them, the more I love them. Your work is truly beautiful. Thank you again. I can’t wait for the wedding pictures.

    Kristin Mashford

  • We knew nothing could be left to chance when the wedding was thousands of kilometres away – and that’s why we had Melissa take our pictures. Before the wedding
    she worked with us to identify photo locations at the destination, and she arrived early to scout the locations in person and work out logistics for the big day.
    Melissa’s preparation kept us on schedule and left us with lots of wonderful memories. The fun we had (yes you read that right – fun taking wedding photos),
    the beauty of the locations, and Melissa’s talent for photography shine through in her work.

    Kara & Andrew Burns

  • Melissa you captured our wedding day perfectly!

    From the pictures at my grandmother’s to the pictures at Oak’s Hall, it was an amazing day!

    You are a truly talented photographer, it made choosing which pictures to choose extremely difficult as each picture captured the happiness of the day.

    Melissa went even further for us and helped with the photo Thank You cards offering her suggestions and ideas as to what she felt would work out the best.

    I would highly recommend Melissa for any special event that would require a photographer. She is truly a remarkable person and photographer who helped in making
    our day truly wonderful.

    Thank you from both of us.

    Karen and Mark Crown

  • Melissa,

    Thank you very much for your great work on our wedding photos. You were the perfect mix: helpful, friendly, creative, and professional. You answered all of our
    questions, took great pictures at our reception without creating a distraction, and were quick to get us our photos afterwards. We really appreciated the proof book and photo website so we could take the time to pick the shots we wanted to print. We were thrilled with the results, and hope to have you do more photos for our family in the future.

    Thanks again,

    Manuela and Kent Keeler

  • Melissa did a wonderful job with our wedding in November. She was professional from beginning to end and was able to capture the “special” looks and feelings. The pictures were fantastic. The proof booklet was of such outstanding quality another professional photographer said he had never seen such good work and then to have it displayed in such a creative way. Our dealings with Melissa were strictly over the internet and by phone until the day of the wedding, it could not have worked out better. We highly recommend Melissa, as a person and her work. The combination cannot be beat.

    Linda and Jim Thomasson

  • We had the extra hurdle of planning our wedding from abroad and you put us immediately at ease with your prompt replies to e-mails and your advice and
    suggestions. On the day itself, you were a pleasure to work with, getting the job done professionally, while still chatting to the guests and blending so seamlessly into our group of family and friends. We are delighted with our photos and have received so many compliments on them. You captured the expressions of our loved ones beautifully and helped make it such a special day. We would recommend you to anyone. Thank you so much for everything, Melissa.

    Patrick and Lisa Purcell

  • Thank you Melissa,

    I came to you with a lot of requests and you were able to fulfill them all. You were even willing to stay out in the cold and take extra pictures of our winter
    wedding, when I know you were freezing (and the camera was freezing). You added so much to our wedding day by recommending an awesome florist and also an amazing
    place to eat. When we decided to elope we weren’t going to even get a photographer, but my husband and I are so happy with the results and can’t wait for you to
    shoot out 1st anniversary when we are back in Niagara. Thank you for everything!

    Jen and MacKenzie Kerr

  • Melissa,

    You did an amazing job of our pictures, both with our engagement shoot and our wedding day. Your experience shows through with your creativity and talents. We really appreciated how quickly you had the pictures ready and how they were presented to us in the albums. You have been very helpful and made the whole experience enjoyable for us and at a very reasonable price. We would highly recommend you to others.

    Lori and Tibor Bardos

  • Mark and I did not want a photographer that was in your face snapping away, yet was able to catch every moment of our wedding day. With Melissa, we got nothing
    less than professionalism from start to finish. The quality of our pictures is further proof. Melissa was able to take pictures without any disruption to our service and was not a distraction at all. Our wedding memories wouldn’t be the same with out Melissa’s strong contribution. Thanks to Melissa we have wonderful pictures that captured our Wedding day just the way we remembered it – beautiful!

    Kim & Mark Brown

  • If you are looking for a photographer that will capture every special moment on your wedding day, then look no further. Melissa Marshall was an absolute pleasure to work with and we could not have been happier with our pictures. Our wedding day was perfect and Melissa made the day pass with ease. Choosing our pictures was extremely hard because every picture was perfect. Melissa really got into her work to make sure she captured just the right pose, light and background to make our pictures that much more special! I highly recommend Melissa! Thank you for making our day so memorable and stress free!!

    Alyssa and Judah Cardona

  • As we turn through the pages of our wedding album it is easy to appreciate how truly talented you are. We have received so many compliments about our pictures.
    You were able to illustrate the warm and tender emotions of the day just beautifully. Your patience and understanding was undoubtedly appreciated during the chaotic times. We are so happy that we chose you to play such an important role in our wedding. We will now be able to cherish the precious moments of our special day forever.
