For adventurous souls who are crazy in love.

Hello there! I’m Marissa.

I'm a wedding and elopement photographer based in Indiana, but traveling wherever your love takes me. I love all things couples!

If you’re looking for fun + adventurous photos, you’ve found yourself in the right place! I pride myself on pushing beyond my comfort zone and creating unique content. Lately I've loved everything about editorial posing! I love working with the idea of planned candids. I’ll pose you, but prompt you in a way that we get that real genuine emotion. Travel is encouraged — quirky and spontaneous are welcome.

I’m a golden hour enthusiast! 
Ready to chase the sun together?

“I found Marissa through searching on IG because I needed a new photographer for my wedding. When I came across her page I loved all of her photos. The colors and tones were just what I wanted for my pictures. Not to mention I love golden hour photos and Marissa does too so I knew she was the one. She even helped me with my wedding day timeline and went above and beyond to reach out if I ever needed anything for my wedding. I absolutely loved my wedding photos! I wish she could come take pictures for every event or special occasion I have in the future. I would HIGHLY recommended Marissa to capture your special moments and I promise you will not be disappointed.”
