Jeff + Renee

Well first I should probably tell you that we are like newly weds with only 6 years of being husband and wife but we have known one another since we were toddlers! We grew up being neighbors and Jeff always lived right down the road from us but our love for one another did not happen till 2011 and we said " I Do" on August 13, 2013. We love to travel and have been blessed with the opportunity to visit Rome for our honeymoon, Ireland for Jeff's 50th birthday and the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park for my 50th! Highly recommend ALL of those for fantastic vacations!! We enjoy ballroom dancing, watching the Chicago Cubs, Kayaking down the river and time with our family (we have 9 grand-kids) so that keeps us on our toes! I LOVE anything with coconut and if I'm not working on pictures.. you can probably find me shopping at TJ Maxx!!

Hello and Welcome! 

If you are here because you just got engaged, Congratulations! We are so happy for you!!!

We started Renee Mellott Photography with the purpose of capturing LOVE!! I know you've been dreaming about this day your whole life so my goal isn't just to take beautiful images of you, but also to be there to support and encourage you as you embark on the most exciting adventure of your life!  I have a big heart and passion for telling love stories through photography. We are a husband and wife team that specializes in weddings. Our goal is to capture the smallest and most intimate moments... the moments that help define the day and tell your incredible story. Our goal is to capture the joy and excitement as you prepare to spend the rest of your lives together!

HIRE RENEE!! Renee was referred to us by me uncle. I went to her social media sites and immediately fell in love with Renee's style of photography! She was the one and only photographer we met with and WE LOVED HER!! She photographed our engagement and wedding photos and they are beautiful. More than I could have ever imagined and hoped for! Renee and Jeff are the nicest people you will every meet and they go above and beyond to stay in communication, scout the best locations for pictures at the venue, and deliver the most gorgeous pictures!

Renee is awesome at what she does! I had seen some of her work, and had a couple of friends work with her when I approached her about doing my wedding photography. She offers a couple of options as far as wedding packages, we opted for the package that includes an engagement shoot as well. So far we've loved our photos. Renee and Jeff are so much fun to work with, she has creative ideas, and a great eye for the details. She has an organized itinerary ready for the wedding day, however in our case, we had a couple people running behind, but she made everything work out just fine. She went above and beyond most photographers, in my opinion, as she even made a special trip beforehand to check out our venues for ideas. Weddings are so expensive, but we thought her packages were very reasonable for such excellent work!
