"Where do I start with recommending Marissa??? She was more than we could have ever asked for!! She was recommended to us by a photographer friend and we could not have been happier with her. Not only did we get an incredible photographer, we made an incredible friend. I am so thankful for Marissa and how hard she worked! Our wedding day did not go to planned (to say the least) and Marissa completely rolled with the punches. She showed no signs of stress and she was so apart of every detail and encouraged us throughout the whole process. Not one thing on our list of photos was left out - even with the loss of several hours of photo time!

My husband and I are always a little nervous and very stiff in front of the camera but Marissa set us at ease from the start. We absolutely loved our engagement photos with her - She made us look like naturals. She helped us out of our shells and gave us such a peaceful, fun experience. When we got our photos back, we suddenly could not wait for our wedding day!! Our wedding day was more of the same - fun, peaceful and easy. You will not regret booking Marissa to be your photographer - for wedding or other. We always love what she does!”

"Marissa is one of those Instagram photographers that you dream about having document your wedding. I remember stumbling on her work a few months before getting engaged and was instantly in love with her style of photography. Later on when it came time to start booking vendors I was referred to her by a family member who spoke highly of her. Shortly after that we scheduled a FaceTime call since I was planning my wedding from the other side of the world. I felt so at ease talking with her and sharing our love story! From our first conversation, I found her to be warm, thoughtful, and kind, but also very professional. One of the best things was that we had an engagement session included in our package. It was the perfect opportunity to not only get some excellent and romantic shots taken, but it also gave us time to connect with her better in person. I have always felt uncomfortable getting my photo taken and this was one major concern of mine leading up to getting engaged/married. Thankfully, I instantly felt comfortable with Marissa behind the camera as she guided us in different poses while still capturing the essence of who we are as a couple. I left our engagement session telling my fiancé that Marissa felt more like a 'friend' than our 'photographer.' We were amazed once again during our wedding with her taking our photos, as she juggled documenting all of the day's events while also joyfully celebrating alongside us. I didn't think we could love Marissa more until she sent us our stunning photos and we haven't been the only ones who found her work absolutely gorgeous! Friends and family have also shared with us how much they have enjoyed her photography and how effortlessly she captured such a monumental day in our lives. So, if you're struggling to find someone to document your wedding, family photos, or engagement session, Marissa is your girl! She's amazingly talented and radiates pure sunshine!"

Let me start off by saying that James and I are the not most comfortable getting our picture taken, but Marissa was so kind and patient with us during our engagement photos at Deception Pass. Most of the time I forgot we were getting our pictures taken. We left that evening feeling so excited for our wedding day because of our experience. Then we got the images back and were blown away. They were insanely beautiful and completely us.

I can’t imagine our wedding day without Marissa. She brings this calmness to the room that allows you to relax and embrace the experience. She moved seamlessly through our ceremony and even grabbed my baby niece while she was crying during our vows. (She’s the real MVP ha!) All of our friends and family mentioned how much they loved Marissa! Some of our friends are even hiring her for the weddings now because of it! Yay!

Looking back at our wedding photos is so incredibly special. Because of hiring her: none of our moments were missed and will never be forgotten. I can’t thank her enough for all of the work, time and love she put into our day. I would hire her a million times over. LOVE YOU!
