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!

“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.”

“Whether you’re looking for a photographer for engagement pictures, wedding pictures, family pictures, pictures of just yourself or with your friends, or even of your animals, Marissa is definitely who you should choose! Not only does she have wonderful poses, ideas, and locations—she also has skills bringing comfort, ease, and lots of creativity! If you’re looking for someone with an eye for detail to ensure that your photos are perfect, choose Marissa. She took my engagement photos and truly captured the love between my fiance and I while capturing the tiniest details to make each photo more perfect than words can describe. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone looking for a photographer. She also has great prices and works with you to find what works best for you! She is the definition of a great photographer, communicator, and loving person. Please don’t hesitate to book her. You will not regret it, I promise.”

"Marissa has shot in my venue multiple times, has shot my own engagement pictures and wedding pictures, and I have referred her to multiple clients. She is not someone I just recommend, she is someone I regularly refer to others because of her talent, her professionalism, her attentiveness, and how quick she can turn a gallery around. Have you ever heard of a bride getting her wedding pictures back in 10 DAYS?! Even having a wedding planner on my big day, Marissa was a HUGE help that truly went above and beyond to make sure everything went perfectly. We have flown to the Midwest for her to photograph us, we have flown her down to Miami to shoot our wedding for us...she is worth every penny!"

"Marissa is by far the BEST photographer I’ve ever worked with! She is so talented and was so helpful with every step of my wedding planning process! She has the best return time I’ve ever seen with photos and her work shines in every photo! Marissa became such a good friend during my wedding - I couldn’t imagine having anyone else there to capture our day! Highly recommend her services!!"

"Marissa is always our go-to. She’s personable, comforting, and the most thoughtful photographer I’ve ever encountered! After we shot with her our first time, I’ll never not want her services! As soon as I think she’s absolutely nailed it, she whips out even more beautiful photos! Most recently, she shot our wedding. I unfortunately got sick during our reception. She then let me go at our own pace, didn’t rush me through anything, and even bought me different items to help me feel better—while I took a breather and sat down for a bit. Not only is she a master at what she does, she’s one of the sweetest souls I’ve ever met! I couldn’t be happier to have all of our photos to look back on for years to come because she truly does a phenomenal job!"

"It would be an understatement to say that Marissa is an outstanding photographer. She is more than that! She kept me on track during all of my wedding planning. Her communication was superb and she always made sure we were satisfied. The photos we got back were STUNNING. My wedding was months ago and I literally look at the pictures every day. I already have fall photos on the calendar with her to get some shots with our doggo."
