After the day was done, all I could think was that I wanted to schedule another one... It will definitely not be my last! And I recommend Mei Lin to all my friends and family. She is kind, professional, highly skilled, and gets great results.

I love the essence that Mei Lin was able to capture in our photos. There were so many small touches and Mei Lin highlighted all of them. Our wedding was so personal. Mei Lin was actually the only person involved with the day of event that wasn't an old family friend.

We hired Mei Lin to photograph our wedding and engagement photos. While we haven't had our wedding yet, all of our interactions with Mei Lin leading up to and including our engagement photo shoot have been great. She is well prepared, responsive to emails, and very professional. We can't wait to have her photograph our wedding!

I decided early this past summer that I would like professional photographs of myself and my dog, Milo, to celebrate a new job I had gotten and Milo's recovery from heart-worm treatments. Mei Lin was my first choice, because I had been following her on Instagram for years and knew her work was top notch, honestly the most dream-like, beautiful photos I had seen and she specialized in working with pets as well. Which was what I was looking for. Her website is very user friendly and well designed, which was a great help when I was first reaching out. She was very quick to reply to my emails and answered all the questions I had. Because my dog is a rescue, he has some social issues with strangers and gets very nervous, I worried that he would be difficult to photograph and would try to eat the camera. But Mei Lin reassured me that she was ready to wait until Milo was comfortable and make his session as easy as possible, which took a lot of stress off my shoulders. And she was true to her word! Milo had his moments, but we either waited a moment or moved to a different area, or pulled out a toy to distract him and I was blown away with the photos I got from that day. Mei Lin gave me reminders and helpful hints leading up to the day, like things to bring to the shoot for myself and Milo. And it really made a big difference, taking a simple photo and elevating it to a treasured memory for me. I brought extra clothes and matched with Milo, which is very "me" lol and makes everyone laugh when they see us matching. I also brought his favorite toys for some cute pictures and pajamas for a "twinkle twinkle little star" theme. I was able to invite my Mom, sister and best friend to join me in some of my shots, and are now the best pictures I have of my family. All of this magic happened in just about two hours, but for me it will last a lifetime. Her prices are amazing too, if that is something you are concerned with, honestly it is worth every penny and then some! After the day was done, all I could think was that I wanted to schedule another one, maybe in a different season or a different location. It will definitely not be my last! And I recommend Mei Lin to all my friends and family. She is kind, professional, highly skilled, and gets great results.

My now-husband and I booked Mei Lin to photograph our wedding in June 2020. Of course, when COVID hit, we had to pivot on our plans! Mei Lin was responsive, patient, and understanding as we gathered multiple backup plans for the big day. She was incredibly reassuring and helpful as we figured out what we were going to do. Once at the session, she made us both feel much more comfortable in front of the camera. She also made sure that if we wanted any specific photos we got them. That's why we hired Mei Lin again to photograph our family after we adopted a dog! A year after our wedding, Mei Lin did a couples session with our pup. Our dog is very anxious and Mei Lin took all the necessary steps to help her feel more comfortable. Mei Lin is professional, kind, thoughtful, and produces gorgeous photos. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

My spouse and I booked Mei Lin to photograph us for a couples/anniversary session. I met Mei Lin several years ago when she was photographing a book festival I volunteered at, and I have followed her career online ever since. I knew when I was looking for a couples photographer that she would be great. Due to Covid, we had no guests or photographs taken at our actual wedding in July 2020, so this photoshoot essentially doubled as our wedding photos, even though we got them around our first anniversary! Mei Lin was incredibly kind, understanding, and responsive about scheduling issues that cropped up due to Covid restrictions and worked with us to find a time and place for the shoot that was both safe AND convenient for us. She was very clear and communicative about how we should prepare for the shoot. During the shoot itself, Mei Lin made us feel more comfortable by giving us plenty of great direction and asking us to tell stories to break the ice. I'm so pleased with the photos she took; not only are they beautiful, but they so successfully capture the essence of our relationship in all of its quirky glory that one friend of mine said, "These are the best wedding photos ever." I would absolutely recommend Mei Lin to anyone looking for a couples or wedding photographer.

Mei Lin did a fantastic job on our engagement and wedding photos. Throughout the entire process Mei Lin was very communicative, asked useful questions, and promptly answered questions and concerns. On our wedding day she was extremely organized and professional. We’re really glad we were able to squeeze in some photos at home with our dog as well. All of the photos ended up looking fantastic, and she delivered our gallery very quickly. The candid photos taken during preparation, the ceremony and reception were truly amazing and captured the spirit of our wedding wonderfully. We cannot recommend Mei Lin enough.
Katy M. on 18 Dec 2021
Mei Lin is such a joy to work with! She is incredibly professional, timely, and makes you feel right at home in front of the camera. I have had the good fortune to work with Mei Lin for our engagement photos and cannot WAIT to see the beautiful photos I know will be coming once our wedding day arrives! I would highly recommend booking MLB Photography for your big day.

Mei Lin was wonderful to work with and made us feel very comfortable, she picked out the perfect location and even got the dog to listen!
