Having Marissa as our wedding photographer felt as if we hired a good friend that happened to have photography skills. She was very considerate of our needs and made sure that we all were on the same page for what types of photos we wanted. We got together before our wedding to discuss what shots we wanted and didn't want (or even how to handle those more difficult family members) as well as the shooting locations and the overall photography style. She has a great attention to detail and was great at listening to what we wanted and communicating what we should do the day of. Even if you have no idea what you want, she'll create an amazing shot. We didn't have a day of coordinator but with Marissa there we didn't need one. She helped with the day of tasks and talked with our DJ and venue coordinator to keep everyone on track. Marissa was great at coordinating people when we need some last minute family shots. She had everyone ready to go so as soon as we got there we could snap the picture and go back to dancing! She was also great at capturing the best and some of the most memorable moments on the dance floor. The quality of the photos was amazing and continues to tell the story of the memories we all shared that day. Marissa is an amazing photographer, we love how all of our pictures turned out and how she captured our wedding day! Booking Marissa was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!

Marissa took our engagement and wedding photos. During our wedding, she was right there to catch every special moment! We also had a great time during our engagement photos venturing to places I’d never even think of. We just had our first baby and will definitely be using her again for baby and family photos!
Marissa is kind hearted, professional and extremely patient. She is also very relaxed during the sessions and made us feel totally comfortable in front of the camera. She’s got so many creative ideas for photo locations and poses. I worried about pictures looking too “posed”, but they just look so natural and in the moment. We were over the moon with the quality of the pictures and I was very impressed with the turn around time, her pricing and editing skills. We highly recommend Marissa for any of your photographs you might need!

Marissa is fantastic! She has done family photos, our Smash Cake and 1 Year Birthday photos, and even a yoga shoot for my class. She puts everyone at ease which makes for comfortable and natural appearance and she is just a blast to be around. -Brenna
Marissa is amazing! She takes great pictures and is super flexible and great with kids! My 2 year old and 10 month old don't always want to stick with the schedule I have planned for pictures, but Marissa has waited for us to feed and do outfit changes and has even helped keep track of one kid and I'm preparing the next! She also gets pictures back to us quickly and with lots to choose from! She really is great and I highly recommend her to everyone!
Marissa did a great job with our maternity and newborn pictures! They are definitely the best family pictures we have ever had. She's really patient with the kids and gave us all the time we needed for feedings and changes. She even got my toddler to smile for pictures (which can be quite a challenge). She has a lot of ideas for different poses plus she's very accommodating if we want a certain shot in particular. We look forward to working with her again!
