We absolutely loved Marissa! Not only did the photos turn out amazing, but we had so much fun shooting with her. She is creative and has an eye for what looks great. We didn't have to worry about a thing. Marissa told us how to pose when we weren't sure what to do, and when we had an idea she went right along with it.

"WOOOOOOW... you are so incredible. Thank you for traveling to make this shoot everything we could have wanted and more"

Sophia & Tyler

Marissa was amazing to work with! She made our shoot with her feel more like a day at the beach and less like a photography session. She's extremely talented and made us feel so comfortable during the process. I highly recommend her!!

"Biggest thank you to Marissa for playing with us, laughing with us, and helping us capture these moments we will forever hold onto"

Haleigh & Cole

She has the best laid back energy and is a total sweet heart. She gave us the best posing guidance and prompts that we genuinely had a lot of fun with, and I think that it translated into really genuine photos that captured a lot of that fun, love and connection. She has a great eye and got beautiful shots full of movement and feeling that I am so excited to have forever. The hardest part of shooting with Marissa is picking which shots are my favorite because there are so many amazing ones!

"Marissa immediately made us feel comfortable and confident."

Emily & Jake

We had the best experience working with Marissa. She has a true talent and we are so happy we found her to take our wedding pictures. The photoshoot went very smoothly and she captured us even better than we had hoped for. We are so happy how everything turned out and hope to work with her again in the future! 

"I could cry I love them so much. Biggest thank you to Marissa for capturing us perfectly"

Amy & Michael

My husband and I left the shoot so happy we stepped out of our comfort zone and decided to get photos taken. Marissa had the photos back to us so quickly and we were absolutely blown away with how they turned out. They exceeded our every expectation and we are so happy we have beautiful photos that we both feel so confident in. We can’t thank Marissa enough for making the experience so enjoyable.

"I was nervous it would be awkward but I couldn’t have been more wrong"

Angie & Jayson

This was our first time doing a couple’s photo shoot and Marissa was very good at making us comfortable in front of the camera! I would definitely book with her again only if we lived in her area :’) I was hesitant because I thought I would be too nervous or awkward but I am really glad I went through with it!

"Marissa is really good at what she does and we had more fun than we expected"

Jenn & Gavin

Everything was very relaxed, and the prompts were fun and kept us constantly occupied. It really felt like we were the only ones on the beach! We really had no idea what to expect based on all the running, spinning, and rolling around in the sand, but we were stunned by the magical stills Marissa was able to capture. Thank you for such an enchanting shoot, we have been absolutely delighted with the results!

""We had SO much fun during this shoot!"

Michelle & Lucas

Getting married but not sure the whole wedding thing is for you? I've been there! Elopements are so intimate & special. Plus! They take a huge weight off your shoulders in terms of planning. Your elopement can be as extravagant or as simple as you like AND can be literally anywhere in the world! Want to say "I do" on top of a mountain? By the ocean? In your cozy back yard? Count me in!


Maybe you do still want a traditional wedding but want keep it low key! Micro weddings offer the best of both worlds, combining the elegance of a traditional ceremony with the intimacy of a smaller guest list. You get to enjoy all the beautiful moments without the stress of managing a large event and allows you to celebrate your love in a way that feels just right for you. And I can be there to capture every precious moment!

Currently I am based in Southern California. My most frequent travel destinations are Scottsdale, Arizona & Tampa, Florida to visit family but I am open to any location! You can check my Instagram to see if I will be traveling to a location near you or submit a message through my contact form and let me know where you would like to work together!

I always try to get your photos back to you as soon as I possibly can and all of my elopement packages include sneak peeks within 72 hours! They will be delivered through your personal online gallery and you will have access to download all the photos, share them with friends and family, choose your favorites, and also order prints!

I fully believe in sharing every beautiful photo I take with you, aside from the blinking, duplicate, or out of focus shots of course. If you are willing to get out of your comfort zone and really have fun during your session, the more photos you are likely to receive!

I get it. Life happens. Weather happens. Pandemics happen too apparently. If you find yourself needing to reschedule, the sooner you let me know the better. I am happy to work together and find a new date that works for both of our schedules as long as you keep me in the loop! I also reserve the right to reschedule due to weather, illness, or other personal reasons and hope you would give me the same flexibility I have shown you.

When booking a photographer you should always make sure you like their artistic style above all else. The photos I deliver will be a final product. I do not change my editing style to fit your preference nor do I excessively photoshop to alter your appearance. In accordance with copyright law the photos I deliver are still owned by me and considered my work. Altering them is not allowed.

No, I do not provide RAW files. RAW files are large, unprocessed, and require specialized software and expertise to store and edit. Because these files are an unfinished product they are not a true reflection of my work and do not meet the quality standards I hold for my business, therefor I do not release them to clients.

I am so excited you want to work together! In order to book you first need to fill out the contact form on my website and let me know what type of session you are interested in. From there we will go over details including time, place, outfits, and cost! If everything is good to go I will send you a contract to sign, with all your session details included, and collect a 50% non-refundable retainer fee to hold your spot on my calendar. The remainder of your payment will be due on or before the date of your session.

Please note: Your booking is not complete until I have received a signed contract and retainer fee back from you.

I am STOKED to capture your story!
Get ready for a good ass time!
