when all you need is love

Engagement + Couple’s

adventure sessions


Beautiful Wedding Pictures


IncludeS 45 minutes on location,

an 8×10 canvas, and an online gallery with print release.

I’m here to capture your real, authentic love story.. The spontaneous laughter, the happy tears, the quiet moments of pure joy when you’re bursting with love. The genuine moments of connection. I’m here to capture the stolen looks from across the room. That feeling of love you just can’t describe.

I’m here to find who you truly are, and authentically capture those extra special moments as they happen.

How it Works


choose a location

The place where you first met; the site of your proposal; the beach where you walked together – any of these locations can make fun, informal, intimate engagement or couple’s session photos that help tell your love story.

If you’re still stuck on where to go, let me know! I can help you choose something that fits your vision.


book a date + time

Select a date and time from my availability calendar below! A $50 deposit is required to reserve your sesssion.

I usually update the calendar about three months at a time, but if you’d like to schedule something a bit further out, please send me an email at melissa@farfallaphoto.com


day of the session

Totally up to you – but I usually recommend bringing two outfit choices. One slightly more dressy (or fun!) and one casual. I want you to be completely comfortable, so don’t stress if you just want to rock one outfit!

The remaining balance of your session is due this day.


post session

It takes me about 2-3 weeks to finish up a whole gallery. However, I’ll be sure to send you a handful of sneak peeks a few days after your session!

Galleries will be sent to you via email. There you’ll be able to download, share, order prints, and finally get those save-the-dates/invites out to your family + friends!


Let’s party

The countdown is officially on until the big day!

let’s make creative magic…
