I"m so glad you're here.
My name is Marissa, I reside in the PNW with my husband, sweet baby girl and our energetic pup. Rainy days paired with thick blankets and a crackling fire are my favorite. I am a lover of real relationships. Small talk usually ends quickly with me because I want to know your heart. I believe in the power of stories. Your story is beautiful and should be shared. I believe that photography is one of the most beautiful avenues to share your story and I would love be a part of your journey. My goal is to capture your moments so you can look back and see the markers of celebration, victory and even the beautiful mundane.
I wish we were sitting down face to face sipping something delicious in a cozy coffee shop, or drinking kombucha if it’s a warm sunny day!
I fell in love with weddings at a young age, I remember sitting at a family friend’s wedding at age 11 chin quivering as the bride walked down the aisle. You could say that I fell in love with love (cheesy, I know!) Since then I’ve had my hands in wedding in whatever way I can—from playing piano during the ceremony, coordinating weddings, to a stint joining staff of a dear friend’s wedding business— you could say I’ve done it all! At my own wedding three years ago I watched my photographer capture each moment, from our first look to our first kiss as husband and wife and I knew someday I was going to do that myself. Then, on my 22nd birthday my sweet husband bought me a camera and I haven’t looked back. Being a photographer gives me life and that is my mission in each of my sessions: to find the moments that give you life and capture them for you to keep forever. I take pride in getting to know each of my clients from the time you click onto my website, to the time we share our stories over coffee to capturing your moments: I want you to feel known and seen. So whether it’s capturing the can-we freeze-this-memory-because-time-goes-too-quickly moment for your family during an intimate family or newborn, or senior portrait session, your excitement and hard work of your business during a branding shoot, or your forever and always love for your forever and always person on your engagement and wedding day I would be so honored to come alongside of your story.
Think I would be a good fit for you? Let's chat!
