a luxury photography experience focused on love and connection.

Capturing all the secret moments that make your love story, yours.

Dallas, TX and beyond

More than taking pictures, it’s about capturing memories.

Hey, I’m Marissa! Your local love enthusiast, coffee devotee, and all-round advocate for using your creativity to make people happy.

I’m all about capturing the secret moments of pure connection.

The ones that are seemingly small, but that I know you’ll treasure forever. 
The moments you’ll look back on and smile because it is you and your love in its purest form, where you forget I am there and just love on each other.

From our very first chat over coffee (always) until the moment you wave goodbye from the backseat of your getaway car, I’ll be there.

Because I’m so here to experience it all with you. 

Your love story is one worth remembering.
Let’s capture it together.

Hey! I’m Marissa, a Dallas, TX-based wedding and couples photographer.
And I’ve been hooked on love stories from the very first wedding I ever shot…

Being a part of that sweet, sweet day and celebrating the love of that beautiful couple left me knowing from the very moment it ended that I never wanted to do anything else.

I realized it isn’t just about taking pictures, it’s about capturing memories.

It’s about creating that comfy space where you can forget I am there and just love on each other. So you can look back and remember the secret (often sneaky) moments of pure connection.

The look on your face as you walk back up the aisle after being pronounced married for the first time.
The quiet moments you sneak off to catch your breath.
The big belly laughter when the best man shares his hilariously heartwarming toast.
The twirling around and having fun.


That’s what it’s about. That’s what I’m about. The happy, heart-full moments we get to share.

The special moments that make your
love story yours…Those are the
moments of ACTUAL magic.

That’s what I’m here to capture.

I’m here to capture the big feelings
found in the little moments…

More than that, I’m here to make sure you feel taken care of and free to be yourself through it all.

Whether it’s by hearing your vision for your wedding day over coffee, by responding to texts and emails the night before, or by telling you a thousand cheesy jokes just to get you to laugh…to catch you in the purest form of you.

I'm here for it all.

From the tear-inducing moments when a bride sends me a picture of her wedding dress telling me she found “the one” or a text from the getaway car thanking me for all my help. 

Right down to the late-night texts asking me for advice on linens and bridesmaid dresses.

I'm here for you.

Because you deserve to feel good about yourself in front of the camera (and out of frame) on your sweet, sweet day.

And, as your photographer, I promise to do all I can to give you the most fun, down-to-earth experience I can.

Here’s what I believe…

I believe ice cream can solve every problem.
I believe in breakfast for dinner.
I believe in pleasantly surprising people as much as you can.
I believe people will be themselves when you give them the space to do so. 
I believe in connection.

And, above all, I believe in the magic of love stories.

I want to capture yours.

Let’s chat about capturing the moments that will bring you right back to your sweet, sweet day!

Because your love story deserves an album full of memories!

Let's chat

“Can I marry Marissa?”

Honestly, Marissa’s work is worth at least triple of what she charges. She was so delightful to work with, and you can tell she genuinely loves what she does. She has a carefree and relaxed attitude but is still extremely efficient and organized. I was really nervous beforehand about the engagement shoot because I get self-conscious about pictures sometimes, but she made Josh and I both feel so relaxed and good about ourselves.

Marissa was calm, confident, and caring throughout the whole process of wedding planning, and she relieved any stress I had about the photos. Y’ALL. Snatch her up!

“Marissa is amazing."

My husband and I got our engagement and wedding photos done with Marissa and we are SO thankful to have her as our photographer. She’s super friendly, so sweet, helpful, and professional. She helps set a comfortable environment and reminds you to just enjoy being with your other half and be genuine.

Make editing easy

with my Rosemary 
preset for Lightroom!

This is an online 1-1.5 hour class via Zoom with me, where we’ll tackle and get into the nitty-gritty of what it means to photograph “moody”.

What we’ll cover in our 1-on-1 session:
• how to understand manual mode
• how to shoot sessions for light and moody photography
• editing techniques for Adobe Lightroom
• finding consistency in your photos and galleries


We’ll start off by talking about what it is that you struggle with regarding photography, whether it’s how to format sessions so that your editing time is much shorter than before, trying to get that ‘moody’ vibe, or all things manual mode. Then I’ll walk you through the course outline and we’ll cover each slide, and I’m gonna be honest... each one is filled with tips and tricks that you can apply immediately after our call, and apply to all your editing techniques moving forward.

“She is a 12/10 photographer.

She was absolutely wonderful to work with and made us feel really comfortable. I got her information from a friend and they said she had the exact style we were looking for. She really encapsulates real couples. She isn’t someone who is going to over-edit, create over dramatics and make a stuffy atmosphere. She is the sweetest, honest and really down to earth person who loves her job! After getting my engagement photos back I cannot wait for my wedding!
