Sometimes it's the experience that makes the final product that much better. Don't take my word on it, see what other clients have to say about Kirsten Melligan Photography.  

Such beautiful pictures - her technique is so unique and unlike anything I’ve seen! Plus she is an amazing beautiful soul!

My husband and I had a couples shoot with Kirsten, and it was wonderful. At first we were a little nervous to be in front of the camera but Kirsten made us feel at ease. She had little tricks and tips to get us to open up and be ourselves, capturing genuine moments of happiness, fun and romance. She also played some music while taking photos which really set the mood. The pictures turned out fantastic. The light, the angles... all of it. It was an amazing experience and Kirsten was a dream to work with. We will absolutely have her take our pictures in the future and be recommending her to everyone we talk to interested in a photographer.

Kirsten is amazing. She is patient with her clients, and clearly passionate about her work. I have two small children, and i was amazed that she could get even just one picture, yet alone multiples of them. She has turned our family photos into a work of art. Thank you again Kirsten!

Kirsten did a wonderful job photographing my family! She was incredibly patient, which isn’t easy when you’re dealing with three kids ages 4 and under, especially in the evening! The end result was a collection of beautiful images —some posed, and some spontaneous— that nicely captured who we are! Overall I am very pleased with the experience itself, and the final product! Thank you!!!

Kirsten is so talented and has a natural gift for capturing life’s special moments. She has done 3 different sessions for us, and each series is has a unique energy and feel. We are so pleased with her work and abilities. We plan on using her again and recommend her hands down. You won’t be disappointed! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We found Kirsten Melligan on Yelp and hired her to take some family portraits in West County around Thanksgiving. Her portfolio was strong on her website even though she did not have many review. After taking briefly on the phone and getting some pricing, it sounded like a great fit.

The weather did not cooperate and we ended up moving back just a day and she was very flexible.

We met the day of the shoot and I crossed my fingers we had made the right choice. She was waiting in the parking lot, she had gotten there an hour early and scouted all the spots and lights. She managed the group easily and with a light hand.

And we just got the photos, she did an amazing job.

We got great shots of us, my brothers family, the whole family together and even the dogs.

We will call again. Thank you, could not be happier.
