I'm Marisa. One r, one s -- named after the actress Marisa Tomei. I'm a cheeseburger lovin' Texas gal with a heart of gold. The little lady who will sneakily capture wonderful moments for you.
I first picked up a camera over 13 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.
In college I studied photojournalism at the University of Texas (HOOK 'EM HORNS YALL \m/) and worked for The Daily Texan. I was photographing anything and everything when I discovered that love stories were my favorite story to tell. Capturing people on one of the happiest days of their lives -- their emotions, their beauty -- is an honor and I live for the beautiful moments shared between two people in love. My style is a mix of photojournalism and artistic photography. I prefer to photograph your day organically and naturally as it happens but will help pose you for formal portraits and style the details.
When I’m not photographing weddings, I love to travel the country with my fiancé Kalen. Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and New York are some of our favorite places we’ve been. When we’re home we spend a lot of time working out and watching thrilling crime shows. Currently no pets or children but we’re hoping to get a pug one day.
THINGS I LOVE: plain & dry cheeseburgers (Hopdoddy is #1 -- fight me), the color burgundy & other dark colors, traveling to new places, fall & winter weather, strawberry & prickly pear margaritas, flowers & floral print anything, traditional tattoos, black & white clothing, string lights, historic buildings, velvet & leather (but not together), geometric designs, cool typography, family vacations, musical theatre, all the ridiculously good food places in Austin, date nights, movie theater popcorn, crime shows and HGTV.
