The Experience

My heart loves to create and find adventure. I believe that if a place or view has meaning it also inspires, it can also bring out a person's pure and truest self. When you see my work I want you to know you that you are welcome and that you belong. I am not just a photographer but also a storyteller. Candid moments are often missed which is why I seek them out so they can never be forgotten. Tears of joy and love during a first dance, laughter and dancing during an engagement, and even moments of awe during a maternity session, whether it be a special day or memory you want remembered I am committed to documenting all of it

The Process

before the wedding

I am all about getting to know my clients, so we will start with an initial virtual or in-person meeting to get to know each other.

on the day itself

On your wedding day I will check in with you make sure you are all set for pictures and start capturing your day. My photo style Is very photojournalistic so I am all about being that "fly on the wall" and capturing the little moments that collectively tell the story of your day!

after the party

Within 48 hours of your wedding day I will send over some sneak peeks in an online gallery for you to enjoy with your friends and family as you wait for me to edit the rest of your gallery.


I aim to capture the beauty of the diversity around us as naturally and authentically as possible, and as the viewer, I want you to see my art and see yourself represented within in it.




“I cannot say thank you to Marissa enough for our beautiful wedding pictures. Aside from going above and beyond to accommodate our needs and wishes and crazy schedules, Marissa was warmly professional, thoughtful and so, so, so creative. My husband and I look at our wedding pictures all the time and think about how perfect they are. They captured the day, the love and the amazing people that came to celebrate us. We will probably need a second mortgage to buy enough picture frames for all of our favorite pic”
