“Marissa is truly incredible. If you’re anything like me, I am so awkward at taking pictures, I hate all the fussing and tend to get stressed out easily. Marissa honestly has a way of making you look like a million bucks and like some sort of fashion model, you’d never know that my fiancé and I are awful and uncomfortable with photos because she captures such beauty. Marissa is your girl if you are into having photos for a lifetime and her use of natural light is simply stunning.”
"From the moment that we met Marissa we instantly clicked. Working with Marissa was so fun. She makes being the center of attention not only easy but natural. She hypes you up and makes you feel beautiful in front of the camera. She captured not only our personalities in the pictures but also the personalities of our wedding party. It felt like one of our best friends was along our side all day long snapping pictures of us. She really achieved the look that we were going for in these images and we just could not be more thrilled by how they turned out. Everyone was shocked and commenting on how fast she was to get the galleries back. I am so excited to have these to look back on to relive the best day of our life. You won't regret choosing Marissa to capture this amazingly special time in your life."
“MARISSA! Okay now that I've spent forever looking at them, I just want you to know that we love them! They are seriously so amazing and beautiful! You are so awesome!

"Marissa is fantastic! If you are thinking about booking with Marissa, you 100% should. We did our engagement photos with her and could not be happier with how they turned out! There is nothing more my fiancé dislikes than taking photos and Marissa made the time fly by, the session was easy, and she even made him laugh. I love that Marissa came prepared and had lots of ideas for pictures, but she was also open to ideas we had. I love that her style is so light, airy, and current. She was also extremely quick in getting the photos back to us. Last but not least, it doesn't hurt that she's a lovely person with a great personality and easy to work with. Could not recommend her more! "
"Marissa, Gosh. They're just AMAZING! I love everything about them! Thank you so much for your beautiful work and capturing the most important day of our lives. Our pictures are truly more beautiful than we could ever have imagined and we will cherish them forever!
