NICE TO MEET YOU!
I'm a Southern California-based photographer with a huge passion for capturing intentional elopements and intimate weddings. I'm all about ALL the love, and everyone — no matter your skin tone, sexual orientation, or any other diversifying characteristic — is truly welcome in front of my camera.
If you're envisioning a wedding day that's centered on the two of you and are looking for someone to come alongside you to help bring this vision to life and to capture it all, I'm your girl.
DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
You like photos that aren't too light & airy or too dark & moody. You like the look of being right in the middle — earthy and natural.
You're not a huge fan of traditional weddings and want to do something a bit different — a little more you.
You want guidance and direction when having your photos taken, but you also want a candid, free-spirited, cinematic vibe.
IF YOU'RE SCREAMIN' YES, YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!
THE STORIES I TELL
Small, intentional weddings and elopements are my jam. This is YOUR day, and it should be focused on YOU, your connection, your story. Let's capture every beautiful detail with an earthy, natural, cinematic feel — photos that you'll honestly like for
years to come.
ENGAGEMENT / COUPLE'S SESSIONS
Engaged, celebrating an anniversary, or just happy as heck to be in love? A couple's session is all about capturing your connection and making memories while doing so. None of that overly posed sh!# over here. This is about capturing your love in all it's raw, goofy, messy, joyful glory.
BRAND / PRODUCT
Yes, I do brand photography too! Whether you've been in business for years or you're just launching, I'll help you create a vision for your shoot and bring it to life. Need help finding models? I do that. Want assistance with taking your product/brand and creating an intentional series of photos that represent you and what you offer? I do that too.
What drew us to Marissa is that not only is she a fabulous photographer that shoots both editorial and candid styles, but she has wonderful examples of shooting a wide range of skin tones, and most importantly multi-racial couples! It was very important for us to both look like ourselves and not washed out or oversaturated in our wedding and engagement photos.
