Client Note

Justin & April

"Melissa is an absolute joy to work with! She is very personable and flexible, always keeping her clients first.

Melissa did our engagement pictures and we are blown away by the quality. The photo session was so much fun and the end results were more than we could have ever asked for.

Her work is creative and she spent the time to get the style we were looking for. She is the best of the best--great service AND great quality! We can't wait to work with her on our wedding day!"

Preparation

I want your experience working with me to be fun and easy and that starts with great preparation. So from the start, I'll help you decide on the perfect location that fits you as a couple, it might be the place you had your first date or where you love to spend your weekends together. 

Next, we will tackle what to wear for your session, I'll send over my Style Guide to help you find the right outfits that fit your style and personality. Plus you get exclusive access to my online stylist to help make the process even simpler!

Experience

When you look back at these photos I want you to remember how much fun you had and how excited you felt at that moment. My job is to make you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera resulting in romantic and joyful images!

I always joke that when the guys tell me after the session that it wasn't that bad that I did my job right! Plus I always encourage couples to finish up our session with a date night together!

Reveal

After your session, I'll get to work editing your gorgeous photos and getting you a sneak peek as soon as possible. I know how excited you will be to see your photos!

Once the full gallery is ready we will set a date for your at home reveal. I know traveling and schedules can be tough so you get to see your photos from the comfort of your own couch. I love when couples make a date night of it and chill a bottle of champagne to enjoy as they look through their photos!

Ordering

You can decide on your favorites together and order prints, wall art and even a guest signing book or album right from your gallery. I love designing gallery walls for my clients that include photos from their session plus personal photos they might have. I can take all of the guesswork out of what size to order and how to arrange them!

As your Fredericksburg Va photographer, I want you to have beautiful images to display in your home along with digital files to share with family and friends on social media!
