So, you want those big moments captured.


The ones where you’re exchanging vows, dancing for your first time as an officially married couple. Simply where big things are happening…but,

You know those “in between moments”?


“the moment where you just stopped to fix your dress or when you went to admire your wedding band for the first time after saying “I do” & you thought no one was looking?”


yeah, i capture those too. Because those are just as important to me. this is where my PHOTO JOURNALISTIC approach to photography comes in.

every. moment. counts.


I’m Marissa

I love spending hours shopping at Target, eating all the samples at Costco, laughing at my own jokes, and redecorating my apartment on a weekly basis.

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.

If you're down for an adventure or just want a photography experience that is so laid back you feel like you’re hanging out with a good friend, then I'm your girl! Want to hear more about who I am and my own love story? Meet me!

capturing raw and honest moments. you’ll dress up,look your best, laugh until you cry, and i’ll do the rest.


I know how it feels to be in front of the camera. I have your back with making you two comfortable that way we can get the photos you really want and envision. I'll direct you when needed (so you're not all what do I do with my hands) and create a space for you two to be in your own world (candids!).

You don’t have to pretend to be perfect.

I’ll give you photographs that look like your memories.


My approach begins with getting to know you, the two lovers who are engaged & elated to be getting married. My heart is all in on hearing your story together, and bringing that out through every image I take along this journey. My timeless & signature photography style is a mix of all the best things; editorial, documentary, romantic, and my personal favorite: all the natural, real, emotional moments between the two of you. I believe in capturing your day in a way that will bring you back to each moment, every time you look at your wedding photos. I don't take the honor of being your wedding photographer lightly and my couples are my priority.


my motto: I got you.

You might've already looked at 100 other photographers' websites trying to find someone who perfectly captures what you’re looking for. AKA way too many galleries, about me's, and contact forms. But my life quote is 'Everything happens for a reason' and you landed on my photography page for a reason. So take your time, grab a glass of wine (or coffee for all you early risers), look through my galleries, and then let’s talk about capturing your own love story!

Questions & Answers 

There are so many frequently asked questions that I get across the board from all my couples. So I made a list of all of them and answered them here for you, old school Q & A style. I recently planned my own wedding & my husband and I were constantly finding ourselves having so many unanswered questions when on wedding industry websites. I don't want you two to ever feel that way with me so take a look and if you have any other questions, reach out! 


Nice things people say about me

It's 2019 and let's be real, reviews are changing the world of business and customer experience. They are so important and it's how you can connect with people who I've had the honor to photograph in the past. If you've looked around my website and Instagram a bit, you have seen my photographs and you have seen what I can do artistically. But these reviews back it all up and you'll get an insight to my couple’s thoughts and experiences!


on Instagram?

lets be friends!

I'm in love with Instagram; it's how I connect with you as my couples, keep up with you and your awesome lives, and showcase all of my latest work that might have not hit the site yet. If you haven't had the opportunity to see my work or follow me on the gram, here it is! (And...heck yes I wanna follow the both of you! So don't be afraid to drop your Instagram handles when you inquire!)
