    Capturing the moment

    Mel and Ari photographed my late winter wedding in 2013 at the Columbia Manor in North Minneapolis. They are like quiet little ninjas who are always there at the right moment to capture the special details of the day without any sort of intrusion. They do an amazing job of capturing natural images in a beautiful, artistic way. Couldn’t be happier with my memories from that day!

    Dedicated, Receptive, Professional

    Mel and her staff worked with my husband and I in the months leading up to our special day to ensure they captured all of the shots we were looking for! For our wedding, they arrived extra early and they stayed throughout most of the evening, catching moments we did not even know occurred! We received all of our photos on a personalized drive so we could organize and print them ourselves if we preferred. And the price was SO REASONABLE. When my husband and I have children, I know we will use Mel for family photos every single year. I highly recommended Melanie Mahonen Photography to anyone looking for a professional, dedicated photographer!

    Mel and Ari were fantastic on our wedding day. They were with us from the very beginning of the day snapping shots of us getting ready until the dance that night. My favorites were all the wonderful candid shots they got of our guests having so much fun at our reception. They had such creative ideas and were fun to work with. We have a two year old son now and we always call Mel and Ari to take his pictures as well and we have never been disappointed in their work. If your looking for good quality photography you have found it in Mahonen Photography.

    Our wedding was captured by Melanie and Ari almost two years ago now, but we can still appreciate the photos that came from our day!

    Melanie was very organized and responsive to any questions and requests we had for our day. There was quite a bit of walking involved during our photo time and they were very flexible with this. We were able to capture every moment from different angles which gave us more candid photo opportunities. We have pictures from our day displayed in our home and we couldn’t be more happy with the results, even two years later!

    All around a great experience working with Melanie and Ari and very satisfied with the photos!
