kind words


“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.”

Carly & Andrew

“Omg Marissa, these are soooooo beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You captured the day perfectly – you got the best moments and we cried going through them. It was like re-living all the best moments and you captured the feelings so well. These are gorgeous. GORGEOUS. Please let us know where we can write a review. Marissa I just have to say again THANK YOU. Thank you!!!!! “

– Ashley & David

“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! “

– Katie & Patrick

“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.
