Client Testimonials

Melissa is my favorite headshot photographer I have ever worked with!  She creates a relaxed atmosphere, so even if you are someone who HATES to have his or her picture taken, Melissa will make it an enjoyable and stress-free experience.  Her work is professional and beautiful, and she gets you your shots quickly.  -- Kate Riley

    Melissa makes you feel like she's been waiting her life just to shoot YOU. She knows that head shots are an important part of your industry success so she takes her work super seriously, but she also make the environment totally fun so you can look like yourself. By the end of the session, Melissa Gomez is your best friend.-- Caitlin Tegart Bitzegaio

    I love the way my pictures turned out with Melissa!  She was able to give me numerous images to chose from that I loved, which has never happened with any headshot session before.  Its pretty amazing what you get for the price and she should be (and probably will be at some point) charging way more for her talented services!  She is sweet, professional, energetic and knows how to make you feel comfy.  She's supportive of what you want but also knows what looks best and has a great eye.  I have received nothing but positive responses from casting directors, agents and other industry professionals.  Not only do they comment on how great the picture is, but they always comment on how it really "looks like me" and how important that is.  I give all the credit to Melissa for being able to capture that. -- Morgan Grace Jarrett

    Melissa shot my headshots, and I subsequently hired her to shoot production stills for my theater company. She worked efficiently and effectively in both settings. I was drawn to her photography because she takes raw, no-frill candids that she doesn't overwhelm with a heavy signature style. The results are very simple, well composed shots that capture the essence of her subject. She's also a pretty rad lady, which makes for a fun shoot and ease throughout. For a good time call Melissa. I highly recommend her. -- Laura Ramadei

    Melissa was simply amazing to work with, she provides the perfect atmosphere in which to capture a natural and relaxed picture. She makes a point to show the unique personality of each person she photographs. Her honest advice, professionalism and quick turn around were greatly appreciated. I have and would recommend her to anyone. - Julie Rosing

    Melissa's attention to detail, positive attitude, and sense of humor made my headshot experience a success.  She was willing to read long e-mails in which I mused about typecasting, to open jpeg files of the shirts I was considering, and to meet me on skype to discuss anything in between.  When we finally got into the studio, Melissa edited the shirt selection with a practiced eye and kept the shoot moving quickly.  I had hired make-up and hair artists, because I'm mostly comfortable in cotton blends and glasses.  And while I'm comfortable in front of a camera, Melissa made me laugh- genuinely, and that read in the finished product.  We ended up with tons of different options of pictures in which I looked like myself!  Since getting my headshot taken by Melissa, I've signed with a talent agency, booked a television pilot, and most importantly, stopped thinking I need new headshots.  -- Bridgid Ryan

Melissa is an absolute dream. She brings a brilliant energy and expertise to everything she does that set me perfectly at ease. When we met during our pre-shoot consultation, her eye for style and familiarity with the entertainment industry was absolutely key in picking out my looks, something I never even would have thought about! At the actual shoot, her style and approach created a relaxed and delightful atmosphere, instantly removing any nervousness I had when I walked in the door. Whether it's for my website, podcast, performer bio or auditions, I use Melissa's photos for EVERYTHING I do and I can't wait to work with her again. -- Claire Ayoub

Melissa is an AMAZING photographer.  I had the pleasure of working with her a little over a month ago.  I was tired (running on 3 hours of sleep because I had a show the night before), but I had a vision for my photos.  We had talked about it in length, over email (because I was’t available for a phone conversation) for three weeks before the session and had gotten organized.  The day of the shoot, she arrived prepared, with her own idea of it could ook like.  She worked with me to help bring my vision to life, and much more! -- Poupak Sepehri

    I loved working with Melissa! If, like me, you don't know the first thing about getting headshots, Melissa will walk you through the whole process. Melissa starts working with you WAY before and after your actual shoot date. She will meet with you before the shoot to discuss looks and expectations, then she will send you thorough notes so you're prepared for the shoot, and after the shoot the two of you will work together to pick your favorite looks. I was so pleased with my headshots. Melissa made me feel confident and at ease, and I think the pictures speaks for themselves! -- Natasha Vaynblat
