Family photos this way

Late-night feedings & early morning snuggles are your life right now… along with the not-so-occasional temper tantrum.

You don’t always have enough hours in the day but holding on to these sweet moments you’re in makes you pray time will slow down even for a moment.

You scroll through your phone and know those quick photos just aren’t cutting it.

You love your littles more than life itself. Those chubby cheeks losing their squish and first-step moments are more than a big deal. 

You need this time in your family’s life documented, in the most beautiful, authentic way.

You’re a mom in the trenches.

You’re over the moon, he just popped the question.

Weddings & Engagements

After you or your planner reach out with your wedding details, we’ll book a virtual coffee date to chat about what you’re dreaming of for your big day.

Start the Conversation.

Step One

Once the wedding date is booked, I'll get to work. We’ll plan your engagement & bridal sessions, and I'll work with your planner to ensure we have the timeline all set. I’m available for ongoing support as your hype woman and encourager when last-minute details come up.

Plan your sessions & create your wedding timeline.

Step Two

On your wedding day, I'm right there with film and digital cameras in hand, capturing the amazing moments you'll want to hold on to for a lifetime. 

When I capture your wedding day, I give a little direction to help you look your best during portraits. I might suggest we move closer to a window for the best light, or show you how to turn your head for the best angle. But I love capturing moments as they happen, with a journalistic approach, anticipating what's coming next and being ready to document how you felt in that moment in time.

Celebrate your day. Receive your beautiful photos.

Step Three

With so many decisions to make, vendors to choose, and details to plan, it can feel overwhelming to book your photographer. I make it simple & easy!

How it Works

When we received all our edited photos they were even better than we imagined! We cannot thank Marissa enough for all her hard work and amazing skills for capturing our special day.

The photos are AMAZING!

Absolutely! Get in touch to share more about your love story & your day. I’ll create a custom experience that gives you everything you need to relax and know your memories are taken care of.

Will you create an experience that’s custom to us?

Whether you want wedding photos, engagement photos, or both, I’m here for you. Get in touch and I’ll give you all the info you need to book your date.

What if we just want an engagement session?

I’m here to support you through every step. I do encourage every couple to hire an excellent planner. When you work with a full-service wedding planner, you'll enjoy the experience from beginning to end.

Time flies, doesn’t it? Whether it’s been years or a few months since your last family photo, your kids are growing up so fast.

But getting all the kids dressed up, organized, and ready for a family photo is nothing short of challenging. Visions of your kids crying and running around as you’re late to your session inevitably hit every time you think of booking a photographer.

Take a deep breath, mama. As a mom of three, I’m here to make sure your experience is as simple and easy as possible. You’ll play, interact, and just have fun with your kids so capturing the candid, natural moments is fun, not stressful.

Life is hard. Your photos don’t have to be. Let’s capture those treasured memories so they will last lifetimes.

As a husband, I love my family more than anything, BUT I do not enjoy taking family pictures every year. However, Marissa was different than anyone who has ever taken our family photos. She was quick, had a plan (a plus for me), took amazing photos, and was excellent with our daughter. Family picture day will forever be in the hands of Marissa, and we live in Kansas!

As a man, I cannot recommend this sweet lady enough.

Marissa is really fun to work with. We are blessed to have her as our photographer because she really captures the different stages of our lives (pregnancy, newborn, toddler, family, birthdays, and more). She has natural talent.

Marissa really captures the different stages of our lives!
