Fredericksburg Va Engagement Photographer | Melissa Arlena Photography


“Working with Melissa was such a blast! We had never met her before and within minutes we were giggling and I felt like I was hanging out with an old friend. We had so much fun and didn’t even realize how much time was passing! The whole ride home my fiance and I were talking about how much fun we had and how we wish we could do it again!” – Diane & Andy

Our portrait collections give you flexibility to choose what you want and get what you love! They include a mix of product options and digital files to satisfy any client’s needs.  A $500 booking retainer is required to secure your session.  My clients typically invest $850-$2950 in custom wall art (framed prints or canvas gallery wraps), albums, print boxes and digital files.

To get the most out of your session, be sure to schedule 2-4 weeks in advance.  In order to create a more personalized experience for my client I only accept 1-2 portrait bookings per month.

Custom Wall Art:

Instead of looking at empty walls in your home wouldn’t you rather see a photo of you and the ones you love laughing and smiling? I specialize in creating gorgeous custom wall art for your home. We will work together to create the perfect collection of images to hang on that empty wall.


Products available for purchase include Fine Art Gift Prints with hand torn edges, beautifully Framed Prints, modern Gallery Wrapped Canvases, custom Linen Albums and of course Digital Negatives.
