in-home cozy couple's photoshoot in orange county

Sometimes, you just come across people that are simply beautiful. I'm not talking just outer appearances. I'm talking beauty deep into their core of who they are as human beings. DJ and Rylee are those type of people. Their love for one another and for living a good, fun, carefree life are just contagious.


I met up with these two at a Peerspace in Costa Mesa. For one hour, we roamed around this gorgeous house, listened to good music, had some good laughs, soaked up the last sunlight of the day, and even enjoyed some Fruit Loops. (FYI, if you haven't had Fruit Loops in a while, I encourage you to. They ARE just as good as I remember them!)


After our shoot, DJ and Rylee left me this review:


"Being comfortable in front of the camera is the hardest part of photo shoots for me and Marissa is the queen of comfort 100%. She made my girlfriend and I feel like we’d done a million shoots with her and made every second worth showing up. She’s great at directing, extremely responsive, and her edits are perfect. I highly recommend."


So, here, they're calling me the Queen of Comfort! What a compliment! But, I've gotta tell you...they're the ones that made me feel so incredibly comfortable. They were so easy to get along with and made my job easy peasy.
