Telltale Photography

I'm so excited to introduce you to an amazingly talented photographer by the name of Melissa Keeley. Melissa owns a company called Telltale Photography and is based in Lansing, Michigan. To say she is talented would be an understatement. And to say that she's priced well-below what she's worth would be the honest truth.

Melissa and I had a chance to meet for lunch on Wednesday afternoon. I looked through her portfolio and I was blown away. You all know how picky I am about photography. I don't like images that are heavily edited or so trendy that in a couple of years they'll look out-dated. I like crisp, clean images that tell a person's story. Melissa's work definitely fits in that category.

Telltale Photography is new to the area. But Melissa isn't new to photography. She's been at it for many years. But she recently moved to Michigan from Columbus, Ohio, where she had cultivated a solid business and name for herself. Now, she's trying to build that same reputation in the greater Grand Rapids area. And I think she has a bright future ahead of her!

Now, here's the best part. Her entry-level photography package with a disc of images {but without an album} costs a mere $1,850. No joke! Her first package with a stellar album costs $2,500. She's decided to keep her prices low so that she can build a reputation for herself in Michigan. Trust me when I tell you, her photojournalistic-style and pure approach to editing is worth a whole lot more. She could easily be charging high-end photography prices for her work.

All this to say, you must check her out. And book her now! Because if your budget only allows a couple thousand dollars for photography, you won't want to miss the opportunity to have her. She's that good!
