I'm Marisa. A cheeseburger lovin' native Texan. A little lady who will capture wonderful moments for you (on my tip toes 90% of the time) and will smile at you a lot in hopes that it will make you smile too. :)
I first picked up a camera as a teenager, honestly it was probably for Myspace selfies lol 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 Y'ALL \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.
When I’m not photographing weddings, I love to travel the country with my fiancé Kalen. (Hold up, fiancé?? Yes, I know exactly what you're going through right now and feel free to ask me anything). Portland, New York, Seattle and San Francisco 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.
