"Melissa did videography to create a short marketing video for an event at our school in Mill Valley and we couldn't be happier with the results. She was timely and professional in all of her interactions with me and the school. She was so easy to work with and had that awesome "I've got this" attitude that you want when it's an event with 300 people. The final video was simply gorgeous. She has a great eye, her editing skills are wonderful and is super talented. I just got the final product last week and I've already recommended her to several friends and rehired her for another project."

"Melissa did my headshots and researched/shot/edited various professional video projects for me. She can do it all. She's reliable, talented, has an amazing eye and is incredibly easy to work with. Couldn't recommend her more!"

"I loved shooting with Melissa! She's really kind and professional. I've shot with her a couple times, the first time was a solo shoot, she works really well with what she's got; lighting, outfits, you name it. The photos came out really nice and she shot on film and digital. The second time she wasn't feeling too well but still kept our appointment with me and another model and still rocked it, again I was pleased with the photos. I would definitely recommend contacting Melissa for a photo shoot, she's super versatile and has an amazing eye!"

"I have had the pleasure of working with Melissa on two separate occasions and I was very impressed with her work and professionalism. She is very easy to work with & communicates very well. I am in love with the photos Melissa has taken of me, she has a great eye. She also has great locations lined up before hand & has a clear idea of the theme of the shoot. Hands down would work with her again, and I would recommend her to friends."

“I recently went and did a photoshoot for my modeling portfolio with Melissa.  She was very pleasant and fun to work with. She is very good at makeup and hair, and I was very comfortable. Melissa is a very considerate, kind and fun person. The environment was very cool and it was clear that she put a lot of effort into making the lighting, backdrops, etc perfect.  I was extremely happy with how the photos turned out. All in all, no bad things to say about Melissa or her photography! I will definitely be coming back!!!"

"Melissa Dale is an amazing photographer. Recently I worked with her on a music video shoot where she was both professional and fun to work with. She knew exactly what needed to be done and had complete control of the actors and set while at the same time maintaining a very fun environment to be in. I worked with her as a model for her photography and she was incredibly sweet and made me feel very comfortable while maintaining a professionalism that showed in the resulting photos. I'm incredibly excited to work with her on future projects and wouldn't go to anyone else."

"My band hired Melissa to shoot some promo shots for our new album. Melissa was fast and very easy to work with. She was set up and ready to go quick. We made it to three different locations in one afternoon. She really made us all feel at ease. The quality of her finished work was perfect. We love our photos."

"Melissa Dale is as incredibly talented with video work. She shot live footage of my band, seamlessly edited it and made us look good! She's also excellent to work with because of her interpersonal and communication skills...just a pleasure all around."
