My name is Marisa. I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in Austin and available to travel throughout Texas.
I first picked up a camera over 10 years ago and I haven't been able to put them down since. I've always loved documenting my own life through pictures so I want to help others do the same. My goal is to produce memorable and high quality photos that my clients will love.
My style is a mix between photojournalism and fine art photography. I received a photojournalism degree from the University of Texas in 2013 and I also studied fine art photography at St. Edwards University for a year prior to attending UT.
Although I primarily shoot weddings and portraits now, I am open to photographing all types of sessions. I don't want to ever limit myself creatively and I find that I am happy taking photos no matter what the subject is. To me photography is about beautiful light, emotions and telling a story.
As cheesy as it sounds, weddings are my favorite story to tell because I'm a sucker for love. I live for the beautiful moments shared between two people in love. Let's get together and capture something that will make you smile! <3
THINGS I LOVE: plain & dry cheeseburgers, the color burgundy, traveling to new places, fall weather, strawberry margaritas, flowers and floral print anything, musical theatre, string lights, historic buildings, cognac leather, geometric designs, family vacations, all the ridiculously good food places in Austin, date nights, movie theater popcorn, crime shows and HGTV.

I'm a firm believer that there are no rules when it comes to your wedding day. It should be a reflection of you and your partner and the things that make you happy! I'm down for whatever you want and I'm here to make sure it all goes smoothly. From lighting, logistics and timeline advice to help guide you through the planning process to laughing and crying with you during those special moments -- I love being a part of it all.
