"Gurl you are wicked talented!! I love them. Truly. Thank you, thank you! And you were so wonderful to work with. Donny and I both felt like we had known you forever. Deeply grateful for your warm & kind energy. Thank you Melanie!"  Caitlin & Donny


"Melanie was so flexible and understanding, she made the entire experience so relaxing and fun. The entire time she just had a positively radiant smile on her face and was showing us as much joy as we were showing each other. Her photos are a reflection of that and we have appreciated it so, so much!   I would suggest Melanie to anyone in the Racine/Milwaukee area, not only because she was such a joy to work with but also because she has been such a great person to communicate with throughout this entire process. Even without meeting in person, talking to her on the phone I knew I was going to enjoy working with her. Caitlyn & Ryan


"We are over the moon with your work!!!!! I am so in love with the photos!  We can’t thank you enough! You are amazing at what you do and an even more amazing person!  Thank you!"   Love, Kim & Daryl

"Melanie was absolutely AMAZING to work with. Her energy was warm and inviting and made everything on our wedding day go smooth and perfect.

"If you are looking for a photographer, choose Melanie!

"Melanie was an absolute joy to work with. With her kind and gentle nature, she made sure we were comfortable and at ease which helped to capture genuine and authentic feelings. Her eye for beauty is incredible, and the passion she has for photography shows during the shoot and most definitely in the photos. Our experience far exceeded our hopes and any expectations we had! We're so grateful to her for our absolutely stunning gallery!Katie & Laura


"I had been searching for a wedding photographer for months when I came across Melanie's page. I am SO happy that we chose to hire her for our engagement session and wedding! She is so kind and accommodating.  She doesn't just treat you like a paycheck or a number.  She has made us feel special since the first phone call we had with her, but especially during our shoot. We were comfortable working with her and our photos turned out BEAUTIFULLY! On top of how incredible her work is, as well as her as a person, she is affordable - not something you can say often when planning a wedding. I feel like we are 100% getting our money's worth with her.   I highly recommend booking with Melanie! Halie & Andy


"Wonderful person, gorgeous photography and helps create memories you will never forget. Melanie is very passionate about what she does and makes sure that you get everything you need and want! We had multiple meetings to make sure we had everything in place for my wedding.  When it came time to take pictures at the wedding, she was professional but also could have fun and enjoy your day with you! Melanie was an absolute joy to work with. I was extremely nervous and a bit awkward when we started our engagement session, but she made me feel very comfortable and natural during the whole shoot. She engaged in conversation with us and took the time to get to know us as a couple which was really nice as she was going to be spending time with us during a very special and personal time for me and my fiancé.  She caught our essence and our personality as a couple which was important for us. Melanie is a wonderful person.  Only positive things come from Melanie Landro Photography! I loved working with her! Highly recommend! Rachel & Nolan


"Awe ... Melanie, you have us in tears. We love them.  The photos are fantastic. We can’t thank you enough!!"  Mike & Sandi
