I’m a wedding industry disruptor who wants to see to it that all couples feel welcome, all body shapes are celebrated and that couples know they can plan their big day however they want, despite what tradition says.

My fiance and I chose Marissa to do our engagement shoot and wedding photography. I was inspired by Marissa's business practices, her transparency and inclusivity with her work instantly attracted me to working with her. Marissa facilitated a fun, intimate, connecting and beautiful experience for us, while capturing all those moments for us to cherish and share with our loved ones. Marissa effortlessly made me and my partner feel beautiful and confident as we were, and let our love for each other come through every photograph. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an authentic, honest, and connecting experience (with beautiful photographs to prove it). I loved our engagement shoot and cannot wait to continue to work with Marissa on our wedding day!

Marissa and [her second shooter] were really supportive. They paid close attention to what we wanted to get out of the pictures, and brought our special day to life with minimal direction. The collection of pictures was prompt, wonderful, and included many candid moments that really showed what was important about our wedding. Marissa was easy to work with and has an excellent eye for beautiful and emotive shots. We really felt the love.

Marissa and her second shooter managed to capture our difficult-to-reach ceremony (10' down a cliff) beautifully and despite being by a rushing river seemed to cover all angles without being obtrusive. The final photographs make our wedding feel very cohesive and Marissa captured our personalities and emotions so well. We warned her that we were not a very PDA heavy couple and she managed to find a great balance with her directions, having us just be in the moment and focus on one another. You can see the love and connectedness in the photos and we never felt pushed beyond our comfort level. We are beyond happy with all the photos we received, and cannot imagine another photographer doing as great of a job!
