Hey! If you're wanting to put a name to a face and get to stalk my life a little, you're definitely on the right page!

 

So stoked you’re here. I'm a five foot four, quirky, Target binge shopper, lover of life, positive vibes only kind of girl. I’m in love with many things - the ocean, traveling, and my family. I got married over a year ago to my high school sweetheart. Together we survived a long distance relationship, started out our life together in Hawaii, have been on many amazing adventures, and have recently made Oregon our new home.

When I'm not behind the camera, I love binge watching shows on Netflix with my hubby, walking the trails behind our home in Oregon, and goodwill hunting. I have a twin brother who is 6’2 and towers over me, an older brother who is the ultimate handyman, a mother who is a teacher on and off duty, and a father who lives up to the laid back vibe of Hawaii, where he’s from.

Current obsessions - Target (a forever obsession), the show Dynasty, spicy ramen (if you’re in Oregon hit up Ramen Ryoma!), and oversized hoodies (aka the ones stolen from my husband’s closet).

Yep, so that's a quick blurb about me. I cannot wait to hear more about you! Feel free to get it touch.

 
 
 
Marissa has been so easy to work with during this whole process. She just did our engagement photos and will be shooting our wedding in September. She suggested such a great spot for our shoot. We actually loved it so much that we are using it as our ceremony location! My fiance and I are definitely not used to being in front of the camera but Marissa made us feel comfortable and was good at directing different poses. We cant wait to have her there for our special day!

Current Location

Hillsboro, OR / available for travel worldwide

I grew up in Southern California (LA babyyy), got my bachelors on the east coast in Massachusetts, then moved to Oahu, Hawaii - so I’ve lived in a few different areas, but currently California, Hawaii, and Oregon is where most of my clients are. My favorite weddings to photograph are those that are intimate, super low key and all about a fun time surrounded by friends, family, and good food. Oh - and of course I won’t complain if you throw in a beautiful backdrop for it all too! I love adventurous couples who are willing to get a little dirty exploring around, brides that don’t mind ruining their hair out on the dance floor, and guests who lose their voices from cheering the happy couple on during their wedding day. I’ll be your go to girl helping you plan your session from what to wear to where to go and get you the best photos possible! Let’s get this adventure started!

This is David - my best friend.

He’s my best friend, husband, and second shooter! I can’t really tell you who I am without mentioning him. If it were up to me he’d be attached to me 24/7. We’ve been best friends for 7 years now and married for 2.
