I was born and raised in the triple digits temps of Scottsdale, Arizona and lived there for 22 years! I moved to the island of Oahu Hawaii in 2019, then San Antonio Texas in 2020, and then Southern California in 2021. I suppose that's what I get for falling in love with a soldier in the Army!

Besides photographer I also hold the title of dog mom, professional beach bum, serial napper, and retired cheerleader. I love to spend my time in the ocean, catching views on a hike, or wrapped up in a blanket watching TV. I only order pepperoni on my pizza, prefer brunch over breakfast, and never skip dessert. Oh, and the Jonas Brothers will always be my favorite boy band ever. 

hey there

let;s have an adventure

I'm Marissa Kaitlyn!

I'm 27 years old, living life off the deep end, and ready to capture your wild, God-given love story!
Here's A little about the girl behind the lens!

Before starting my photography business I worked as a preschool teacher, a middle school cheer coach, and a marketing director for Chick-fil-A! But photography had always been a secret pipe dream of mine. I loved to capture and share life around me and always admired the work of photographers I followed on social media. When I moved to Oahu my joy for life was reignited. Island living was such a dream come true I felt the need to capture every memory!

For Christmas Brandon gifted me my first professional camera and lenses and opened the door for me to pursue my dreams. I cried tears of joy, then immediately dove face first into the world of photography! Not only does my business bring me so much joy and allow me a space to pursue my creative side, it has also allowed me to make connections all over the world! My hope is to bless others with captured memories they can look back on for the rest of their lives.
