We are absolutely thrilled with Melissa and Koko’s work! They made us feel so comfortable, which allowed us to relax and be ourselves. They are super personable and wonderful with the kiddos. We loved the fact that the majority of the photos were moments and not posed pictures. These photos will be a treasure that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you to them for capturing those special moments Melissa and KoKo! This was the BEST experience we’ve ever had with a photographer! We highly recommend them!!!

"Melissa and Koko are the best private photographer team we have ever met, and we have used very high-end photographers before (think photographers who have photographed celebrities publicly and privately). It can be sort of intimidating to find a photographer for your needs locally--whether it be something as simple as a couple's session or as complicated as a wedding. But as soon as you meet them, you immediately feel like friends and relax, which makes the many candid photos POP. We feel like a Hallmark family after each session we've done, and the latest one went above and beyond expectations. We have done couple's photos, one-year old photos, newborn photos (same day as the birth in the hospital, what a cool feature!), and family pictures now multiple times. Melissa and Koko pick beautiful locations, and the results more than speak for themselves. We just went through over 100 photos and had a very hard time picking our favorites because of the impressive quality of all of them. When you look for a photographer, you look for consistency, and we can tell you right now after all of our sessions that they are the real deal. Their prices are beyond reasonable, and you will legitimately have a really fun time during the shoot. We look forward to using Melissa and Koko in the future and beyond, and if they ever move, we will travel to whatever state they move to--without hesitation--for the next shoot. They're worth it. They are a true hidden gem in the Southwest. We recommend them to everyone! Thank you Melissa and Koko for another incredible session"
I found Melissa and Koko through a facebook search. I was looking for anyone doing mini sessions for our family Christmas cards. I chose them purely off of all of the wonderful reviews they have. The whole process was very streamline and easy to follow. We met them in a beautiful location and had a 20 min session. They were very personable and accommodating to my curious 7 year old daughter 😊 We were unable to meet them at their studio for our photo reveal and they were again flexible with us and made a beautiful video we were able to watch at home. I sent it to my mother in Alaska and she called me shortly after crying at the emotion they were able to capture in such a short session. No joke! These guys are awesome!!! Highly recommend 👍
We heard about Melissa J. Koko Photography after going to the Las Cruces wedding expo. After choosing them for our engagement photos and our wedding, we know we couldn’t have gone with anyone else! They were incredible and we couldn’t ask for a better photographer! They are so down-to-earth and fun to work with - and they loved working with our dog during our sessions! We got married in Albuquerque, NM and that was the first time they shot at that location. I loved that they took so many photos of the architecture too. Melissa and Koko are incredible photographers who have a creative and artistic style! Thank you both so much for capturing our special day!
