Hello! I am Marissa, the face behind the camera.
You have found yourself here because you are wanting to capture cherished moments - maybe the good, the amazing, and even sometimes the ugly! Because.... well... it's life.
While I hold a BFA (2009) in Photography from Columbia College in Chicago and an MFA (2014) Studio Art Photography from Illinois State University in Normal, IL- the education component is always nice but I have been told that where I really shine is creating friendships and a natural atmosphere where my clients feel like they are at home.
I am wife to Michael a Marine and mother to my sweet and spunky daughter, Leica. ( yes.. she is named after a camera.) We are originally from Illinois but found our to Kansas City with help of my husband's job. We love it here in KC but I am always happy to travel back to Illinois ( or anywhere for that matter).
I absolutely love photographing weddings, families, kiddos and major life events for everyone. It brings me such joy to capture moments that are fleeting- so that they can be cherished forever. I serve the greater Kansas City area, Northern Illinois and Chicagoland area, and do destination sites too.
Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your photographic service needs.
I cannot wait to capture your beautiful life events.
