Good morning Tony.
Thank you once again for doing such a great job yesterday and putting up with ghee heat plus the unexpected twists n turns from our MC. Lol. He really put us on the spot with that first waltz that magically made it's way into our program lol. But I have to take my hat off to you & our MC. You guys made our day fun and our guests were most impressed with your work.
I am so glad we got the time to finish taking our photos with the bridal party.

I just wanted to let you know that the flash drive arrived safe and sound, thank goodness!!
And I love the photographs!! You really are very skilled, there are some truly gorgeous shots in there, some hilarious ones too and even some lovely ones of my non-photogenic husband. You did work a miracle
If I can offer you a review/referral/etc for you to include on your FB site or web page I would be more than happy to do this, please just let me know.

I particularly am thankful I made the suggestion of the chairs on the beach, and the images you have taken fulfilled my expectations and more, they are just what I had personally hoped for, so for all the photos, you've done exceptionally well and we're very very pleased with the end result.

Me and Rebecca would like to say thank you very much for the support you have both given us in Samoa, also the make-up that was done on the Girls and the awesome photos that captured our Day.
Our guests commented how professional you worked things on the Wedding day and also how the pictures you capture are beautiful.
We miss Samoa, it has been a slow start back in N.Z since we've been back, but that's reality.
We enjoy every moment in Samoa and meeting you guys was perfect.
Next time we are in the beautiful Samoa we will let you guys know and catch up for a Coffee ( no we mean a Cocktail ).

Tony and Melissa made our special day so easy and lots of fun. Melissa's hair and makeup was exactly as I wanted and we both had so much fun getting the photo's taken. We are both so happy with their professionalism and genuine friendliness and interest in ourselves and our wedding. They both made it a very special and memorable day for us. Service was above and beyond our expectations. Thanks!!

Take care and stay in touch!

Thank you for everything, our stay in Savaii has been most memorable thanks in large part to you & Melissa as well as your staff at the resort. We had such a great time it was hard leaving.
The photos turned out so much better than what we had imagined and again we are thankful you were able to document this trip for us.
Hope to see you both in Apia in the near future.

So we arrived home late last night, back to reality for us now. Miss Samoa already.
Thanks so much for capturing our day we are looking forward to some amazing images.
A lot of people commented on what an amazing job you did. A lot of photographers are quite pushy but you were exactly as we wanted you went with the flow of things and seem to be very thorough. Cant wait to see some pic's. Sorry we didn't catch up with you before leaving we were all over the place catching up with family and our departure date just crept up far to fast. look forward to hearing from you soon with the top 60 images.
Thanks again Jaime and Tino.
Fiona & Mike
Thank you both Tony & Melissa for making us feel at ease on the lead up to our wedding and on the wedding day itself.
You both have an excellent manner about you and thanks for taking such a personal interest in our big day. It is very clear from our album how talented you are Tony as a photographer, and Melissa for doing my make-up and hair. You both certainly went well and truly beyond the “call of duty” in making it all come together on the day.
We feel grateful for all your time and effort you gave us and with your guidance and relaxed style you were able to lead us through the process without us feeling self-conscious and managed to get some awesome natural photos. Also your friendly nature and quick wit put us both at ease enabling you to get the best shots.
You captured our day through your amazing photographs and because of this we will remember every moment forever. We especially loved the variety of photos you took.
Thank you so much again for all you hard work, amazing results and our absolute best wishes for your “big day” in October.
Fa’afetai, Take care and all the best
Sandra & Ben
Words cannot express how thankful we are to Tony and Melissa for making our day amazing.
It was quite daunting having to arrange a wedding from overseas as you are going off recommendations from websites, resorts or other people without being able to meet with anyone beforehand.
Tony came out of his way to meet with us a few days before the wedding and immediately put us at ease. Prior to meeting with him we had no idea how things were going to go. He basically became our wedding planner. On the day Tony was “The Everywhere Man”. He acted as the time keeper, continually updating the bridal parties about the progress, he took some great lead up photos which are incredible to look back on and see the build up through his lens, helped with the timings during the day, nothing was an issue, he worked around us and you could see him getting excited as the sun started moving towards a photographers perfect vision
Tony is a genuine, caring, professional photographer who was in the end, a really integral part of the day. I think anytime you have someone who is that passionate about what they do for a living you are in good hands. Every single one of our guests on the day loved Tony and he became part of the family. It was the best decision we made. Melissa was just as amazing and friendly. We realised a few days before the wedding that we hadn't organised hairdressers for the girls in the bridal party so we emailed Melissa in a frenzy asking if she could help. It was all locked in that day and they were perfect. Melissa made up the girls beautifully, they all looked absolutely stunning. Melissa also kept the bride from freaking out on many occasions including when she saw the bright pink table settings! Melissa promptly arranged to have them removed and ensured everyone was relaxed and happy throughout the lead up to the ceremony.
Again, we are extremely thankful to both Tony and Melissa for being part of our special day, for being so incredibly passionate and generous with their time and for being exceptional at what they do. We wish them all the best with their life’s together, their business and any future endeavours!
Lucy & Siala Ah Mu
Siala and I could not of been happier with how Tony and Mel made the impossible possible.
We underestimated the challenge in planning a wedding in Samoa from Australia. Fortunately, Tony and Mel helped us put the pieces of the puzzle together with ease. They kept us in the loop with their progress throughout the entire wedding planning process, they were proactive with making decisions and putting them into action, and they never failed to deliver.
Mel made the girls the centre of attention which was very much appreciated and Tony's approach in taking the photos made everyone relaxed and yet so professional. Tony and Mel are very good at what they do and we couldn't think of a better pair to carry the name "The Samoan Photographer".We are extremely pleased with our wedding photos and we would definitely recommend them to anyone regarding Wedding and/or formal makeup and photography in Samoa or even in any of the Pacific islands.
Lilian & Leon
Tony and Melissa are the perfect team. Planning a wedding from afar can be a bit daunting, but as soon as I found Tony I knew all would be well. In the end they surpassed all our expectations and really looked after us. When you get married in Samoa, you're treated like family, not just a client. Melissa did my make-up beautifully, and then it was over to Tony - whose dry sense of humour had me cracking up when I would have otherwise been a bit nervous. They both brought a gentle, fun-loving but very professional presence to the big day and gave us fantastic photos that we really do treasure. Nothing cheesy or artificial. Also their prices were super reasonable, and they made sure we got high res copies of all the photos we wanted.
Thank goodness we found them - highly recommend!
Jo and Grant
Our wedding day was on the 4th June 2011 at Le Lagoto Resort, Savaii. We were lucky enough to be recommended Tony and Melissa by Gabriella, who is the Manager at Le Lagoto Resort. Melissa happily came to our Fale to do my Sister’s and my make-up. She did a fantastic job! She was punctual, fast and efficient. Her company was second to none and after 5 minutes we felt like we’d know her forever. We had quite a few laughs and the result was we looked great. She is a very talented make-up artist and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanted to look the best they could on their special day.
Tony was our photographer. He came to see us before the wedding equipped with a fantastic plan and lots of great ideas. Nothing was too much trouble. He worked with us on what we wanted and helped keep everything stress free and easy. His ideas were appreciated and well incorporated into ensuring our day went smoothly. I found Tony unobtrusive and fun to have around. He has a great sense of humour and is a good laugh. He captured a lot of very special moments and provided us with a package that suited our needs perfectly. He blended into whatever was happening, took his time when he needed to, and was very fast when he needed to be. Going from our photos, Tony is an awesome Artist who takes pride in his work to ensure a perfect outcome. I cannot recommend Tony highly enough and feel blessed that we were lucky enough to find both him and Melissa.
Justine & Rocky
Great communication from beginning to end, professional throughout the shoot yet still personable enough to make us feel comfortable and carefree on our day. The best thing about 'The Samoan Photographer' was that he actually listened to what we wanted and delivered the results.
Planning a wedding in Samoa whilst living in New Zealand was stressful, but it was Tony's professionalism when dealing with him; from his speedy replies to my emails, to full detailed replies to my queries to his stunning portfolio of past weddings that let me know he was a winner and had to be the photographer for our special day!
Thanks again for capturing the essence of our day.
Much alofas, Justine and Rocky
