I've got this really fun mix of joy and excitement with a healthy heaping of a *get it done* kinda attitude. That means I'm cracking jokes with your family and laughing with your wedding party ALL while keeping us on track with your timeline. I'm very passionate and excited about what I do, so my favorite thing is sending some photos RIGHT AWAY after your engagement session or wedding! WHAT?! Yep! You read that right! You'll get a few images THAT NIGHT to share on social media & with friends and family! It's kinda my thing.
"Marissa was one of the best parts of our wedding experience. To set the stage, our wedding was a destination wedding in Maui, HI. Marissa agreed to fly to Hawaii and photograph pretty much our whole experience. We did multiple shoots at a handful of different locations throughout our entire time in Maui. She made us both feel comfortable and great about ourselves while shooting. She worked diligently to edit our photos and give us the majority of our photos before we even left the island. By the end of the trip Marissa turned from photographer to dear friend. She is very professional and beyond a dream to work with."

"MARISSA. IS. GREAT. YALL! She is so sweet as she works with you to get your personalities to come out in every picture. She knew poses that made us look unbelievably adorable and turned a seemingly average bushy area in town into a heavenly paradise! Her mind continually searches to find the exact spot to shoot perfection. Her artistic heart comes out in incredible ways to make your pictures ones that you will cherish forever! You just let her do her thing, listen to her instruction, and let your love for your significant other shine bright! Thank you Marissa!!!"
