Welcome! I'm Marissa.
I love horses and espresso, but sometimes iced coffee too. I like red wine and craft beer. I love the idea of having wind in your hair, but realistically hate the way wind feels. I can probably quote every episode of Seinfeld and The Office
I love traveling and in addition to weddings from San Diego to Humboldt, I have shot weddings in Washington, Oregon, Nevada and Arizona! I LOVE destination weddings and am happy to book any within the United States.
My photography journey started when I was around 15. My first camera was a 1970's Canon AE-1. I used it to shoot black and white film. I also developed my film by hand and used the dark room to print all of my images out! These days, I shoot mostly digital but still work with some black and white film.
I was born in sunny San Diego but grew up in beautiful Northern California! I am happy to shoot weddings from Santa Cruz all the way to Tahoe with no additional travel fees.
The coolest thing about being a photographer is the ability to capture these amazing memories. If you've ever lost someone important to you, I suspect you were able to find joy in seeing photographs. I fully cherish the photographs I have of my loved ones. I have a background in photojournalism, and I use my training to help create and foster authentic and genuine moments and posing.
