photographs documenting your love story
Hey, I’m Melissa Arlena, a homegrown Virginia wedding photographer, and Northern Virginia newborn photographer. Military wife and boy mom are my two favorite jobs though.
I know how nerve-wracking it can be finding the right photographer who will make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I've been there before, both as a bride and as a new mom. I'll guide you through it all so, in the end, you feel relaxed and natural with gorgeous photos to remember it.
My favorite part of my job is the friendships I've formed with my clients, being able to tell their story from saying "I do" to finding out pink or blue and beyond.
