Because your day is about so much more than pretty pictures

Experience

01.

Your personal wedding guru

more than a wedding photographer

My commitment to you.

Of course you hired me to be your photographer and I'll be by your side throughout your wedding day, but a perk of being in the wedding industry is that I'm constantly surrounded by other incredible vendors. I am always learning new ins-and-outs of the wedding world as it evolves and who am I to not share all of that with you?

So you need vendor recommendations? I got you. Do you need an objective ear to bounce ideas off of? That's what I'm here for! First and foremost, I'm here for YOU. I want you to feel like you can reach out like you would to a close friend and know that my help goes beyond the pretty pictures you hired me for.

02.

Efficiency is my middle name

I promise not to leave you on read

My commitment to you.

Your time is valuable especially when planning a wedding. I'm a quick responder and I won't take days upon days to reply to your questions, needs, messages, etc. In fact, I'm known for lightning fast responses! I always get back to you within 24 hours and have systems in place to ensure you always have a quick and easy experience. Not just on the wedding day but before and after as well.

03.

I'm not here to change you

Because you're more than an Instagram post

My commitment to you.

I don't try to make you guys something you're not....not serious and moody? But light hearted and goofy? GREAT! Are you guys quiet and more introverted rather than super outgoing and loud? GREAT. My approach makes sure that you guys can be yourselves and you wont have to fit in a box to look or be a certain way....

“For as long as I can remember, I’ve fantasized about what our special day might look like. When it came to choosing our wedding photographer, picking Marissa was a no-brainer. I knew that she would be someone who would be much more than just a photographer for our wedding experience. She immediately offered to help with planning, finding vendors, and answering questions. She is the type of person who truly truly cares from the bottom of her heart to listen, learn more about what makes you as a couple unique and special, and help in any small or big way she can.

We both felt a little uneasy about having a camera in front of our face and within minutes, it was evident how Marissa was born to be a wedding photographer. She knew exactly how to make us laugh, ease our nerves, and take away any stress. My fiancé, who strongly dislikes taking and posing for any photos, told me how much fun he had and how easy the process had been — and I couldn’t agree more! One of our easiest and best decisions to date!”

Marissa was incredibly self-guided but still present. Honestly, she felt like a friend grabbing photos - present, but never distracting or burdensome. I'm pretty introverted and self-conscious, but she was such a huge help - giving me direction and encouraging me the whole time. She came up with really fun and interesting poses that represented us perfectly - honestly, that was what I was the most concerned about! I didn't want staged couples photos that made us look like somebody else, but Marissa was able to create such a beautiful representation of who Michael and I really are as a couple.

Marissa was one of the best and easiest decisions we made about our wedding. If you're at all nervous about the attention of being a bride or uncomfortable in front of the camera, I can say from experience that Marissa will feel like your best friend behind the lens - coaching you comfortably and assuring that you look nothing less than stunning in every photo. She's incredibly talented and incredibly easy to work with.

“Embarking on the task of hiring a wedding photographer made me nervous to say the least. Would they make sure I looked my best? Would they get all the shots I had in my mind but couldn’t verbalize? Would I feel uncomfortable posing for pictures? Would they lose the once in a life time moments?? But all these questions were put at ease when we hired Marissa to be our wedding photographer. Meeting with her to discuss our wedding was so fun and natural - she had so many questions about how we wanted our wedding pictures I didn’t even know I should have asked. But even when I didn’t know what I wanted myself she somehow figured it out perfectly. Our engagement pictures were SO fun despite how incredibly nervous and awkward I felt when we showed up that morning. She knew exactly how to loosen us up and get the perfect shot! The wedding day went flawlessly as Marissa faded perfectly into the background while still making sure she got what was important to us. Marissa captured the beautiful moments of our wedding and made sure that our memories lasted a lifetime.”

“If you're looking for a photographer that feels like an old friend, then Marissa is your girl. Due to some unforeseen (and constantly changing) military orders, we had only 4 months to plan our wedding. Marissa was so accommodating and made everything as stress free as possible. I never had to worry about whether or not we were on the same page. 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 made everything from posing to planning shots to managing our families effortless, easy, and comfortable. We wanted those genuine smiles and the real emotions of our day to shine through our wedding photos, and Marissa achieved just that. We're forever grateful that we found Marissa and will cherish the love she put into our wedding and engagement photos for decades to come!”

"After the session, my fiancé, who strongly dislikes taking and posing for any photos, told me how much fun he had and how easy the process had been."

“My overall experience with Marissa was incredible. Marissa really understood my vision for my wedding day and took the time to really listen to what I wanted. She did a great job of following up with me on details-and most of all she relieved any stress about time or details...Marissa has the skill to capture beautifully candid moments and also compose more traditional poses. She is extremely versatile and is creative on her feet! One of our favorite things about shooting with Marissa was her flexibility. She was good at instructing us on poses she knew that we would like, but also listened to what our ideas were. We really felt like we had the freedom to say what we wanted.”

“Our overall experience with Marissa  was great. It was our first time having our photos taken professionally and the whole experience felt very natural and friendly; we never felt awkwardly posed or uncomfortable throughout the entire photo shoot. Marissa was very friendly and easy to spend time with which made the whole experience very enjoyable...if you want quality, realistic, natural looking photos then you’ve found the right photographer. I can’t stress enough how comfortable and enjoyable our experience was with Marissa.”

Marissa was part of the reason our big day was so amazing! Her communication prior to the wedding about the wedding day schedule was upfront and clear. She took the time to meet with us and hear about how we envisioned our wedding day and really honored what we said. I am extremely uncomfortable in front of the camera, but her enthusiasm and sincerity put me at ease. I treasure the pictures she took of my husband and I, our friends and family. I highly recommend Marissa to anyone looking for a photographer - she is really able to capture the excitement of the day and the essence of the couple.
