I can not explain what a pleasure it is to work with Melissa Riot!! She seems to always find a way to get the amazing shots without you even knowing that it happened!! Like some sort of voodoo photography magic!
2nd to none photo quality and easy to work with!
Highly recommended!

I couldn’t recommend Melissa highly enough as a photographer. I’ve done a couple of shoots with her and she’s made me feel comfortable every single time. Not to mention the pictures turned out even more stunning than I expected!

Katie Rambow

Had a blast doing a puppy photo session with Melissa! So easy to work with and the photos turned out spectacularly!

"Incredible pictures for our Beauty & Beast/20s flapper 4th anniversary photo shoot! Had a blast shooting with Jawdropper Studios and hope I get to work with them again in the future!"

Connor Schmeck

"She has a real talent for music photos, really runs around making sure the photos are top notch. Has a creative eye and is a really cool person to work with!"

Jeff Wright - Pinnacle Media Group

"Melissa has a natural eye for getting unique and interesting shots that most people wouldn’t even think of."

Brent Newberry - The Tomb Tones

"Did some great band photos for us, top notch work!"

Cedric Egan - Freakshow Sinema, The Casket Creatures

"Great eye, great quality, love the candids!"

Emily Hurst

"Working with Kyle was incredibly easy--not just because he's a musical guru, but his understanding of genre, tone, and presentation is absolutely solid and it makes collaborating a real joy. The level of creativity is incredible and I hope to collaborate with him more on future projects."

William Davis, Series Creator, Johnny Sticklegs


Korey Jordan, Gweilo Dumplings

To say we are happy would be doing Jawdropper a serious disservice. Every step of the way was made enjoyable and easy and Kyle even went as far as to include various prints of the lil guy for stickers, shirts and web design which was something I didnt even think about but most certainly needed.


Nicholas Hoffman,

Back to the Decade Podcast

Kyle and his team created the most perfect theme song for my podcast Back To The Decade! I gave him an idea of what we were looking for and he absolutely nailed it. Not only is he incredibly talented, Kyle and his wife Melissa are just truly wonderful people. Thanks again!!!


I have got to tell you Kyle Ransom King of Jawdropper Studios did excellent work!!!! The quality! The individuality! The price! I had no idea where to start with my Positive Punks logo. I gave him details on what I wanted (which wasn't a lot) and he created it. It is perfect! I love it! Thank you so much!!!!!!

Cass Khaos, Positive Punks
