I cannot commend Marisa enough for her amazing vision that she so beautifully captures through her camera. She shot my now husband and I for our engagement shoot, and a year and a half or so later, our wedding day. The thought, time, and effort she, and her awesome other half, Steve, put into the shoots is truly amazing. Neither I nor my husband are very comfortable being photographed but Marisa is so sweet and gives you just enough direction to where you feel comfortable, but look natural. The photos she took of us I will cherish for the rest of my life. Not to mention, she included literally tons of pictures for us to keep, included prints from our engagement shoot, and a beautiful photo album she spent the time to create herself of our wedding. It was also SO endearing to see how excited she got when the light was juuuust right and she KNEW that the photo she took was going to be perfect. It made us so excited to see them as well. We are so grateful for her and her amazing talent! She is such a genuine person with a creative eye - the way she was able to capture our day is stunningly beautiful.

Marisa is hands down the BEST photographer my husband, Jackson, and I could have asked for.. Her work honestly speaks for itself, but she is VERY talented and extremely sweet. And definitely cares about her clients. Jackson and I felt like we have known her for years, and got along with her very well. She is relatable and charming, and was very good at giving us directions all while making us feel at ease so that we looked and felt natural in front of the camera. Marisa made us feel comfortable for both our engagement and wedding photos. Which came out BEAUTIFUL. She is very professional, organized, and has a fast response time.. Definitely would recommend over and over again!

From the beginning, Marisa has been nothing but sweet, comforting, and most importantly responsive! My fiancé and I were concerned about being too awkward for our photo shoot but Marisa quickly made us feel comfortable to be ourselves. She has a great eye and pointed out ways that we could improve a certain shot in a way that was so sweet and kind. She doesn’t give many explicit placement directions (place hand here, look this way). She gave my fiancé and I directions like kiss her forehead and whisper something in his ear to make him laugh. This resulted in adorable candid shots that really show the love my fiancé and I have for each other. She also was incredibly quick with giving us our finished pictures (it took less than two weeks). They are better than I ever imagined. We are having a hard time choosing our favorites!

Marisa was an amazing person to work with for our wedding. She was so patient and easy-going with the insanity and chaos happening throughout the day. She was so professional and kind with everyone in the wedding. I appreciated her scoping out places to take photos and improvising when we had weather issues (it was so humid). Marisa treated us like we were her friends rather than as clients, like she really cared about us as people in addition to her work. Communication was a breeze, she was always thorough and very responsive whenever we had questions. And this doesn’t even begin to cover her photography from our wedding. Every photo was bright and beautiful, and they captured our emotions as vividly as she captured the colors of our Hindu ceremony. She complimented the bright colors with pastels and black and white images, which were all equally stunning. We also had a second photographer for our wedding who was equally fantastic and great to work with. He worked with the guys to get some wonderfully creative and hilarious shots. Marisa put together our photo album tastefully, capturing every moment from getting ready to the very last dances. It was a perfect combination of colors, emotions, and action. The quality of the photos and the album cannot be beat. I would highly recommend working with Marisa for any event, especially if it’s a more colorful event, as she’s a wizard at capturing colors. Thank you for everything, Marisa. I look forward to working with you again in the future!
