where all of your people will be together and that day should be honored for what it is, a nod to all that has brought you to this milestone together. 

There are few times in life

For this reason, I put considerable importance on connecting with my clients, and making it clear how I will be supporting you from now until you have your images in hand.

Deciding who to partner with for this day isn't just a transactional choice, but an alignment with who shares your values and vision to collaboratively pull off the day of your dreams.

Direction 

“Marissa was incredibly self-guided but still present. Honestly, she felt like a friend grabbing photos - present, but never distracting or burdensome.”
-Rachel and Michael

With a communication style that’s direct, calming and confident, I’m proactive in giving gentle direction to make sure you can effortlessly (simply, freely, ) revel in your day

I greatly rely on my 6th sense for knowing when to step back to allow moments and interactions play out, when to confidently give any relevant guidance, and I’ll always be present but never intrusive, so you feel both taken care of and free to be yourself.

"If you're looking for a photographer that feels like an old friend, then Marissa is your girl...When we left our engagement session, my husband (who HATES taking pictures) said it was the best time he'd ever had taking professional photos. Marissa makes everything from posing to planning shots to managing our families effortless, easy, and comfortable.

"We had over 30 people in our wedding party and over 300 guests and Marissa did a phenomenal job of directing them for all of the photographs, while having fun and treating each of them with respect. We had several friends and family members tell us after the wedding how they just loved our photographer. That is a testament to the personable energy that Marissa has and how she fit in with all of our guests."
