Savor your day

There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to
love stories! Maybe that means eating waffles
during your ceremony as a sweet nod to your
first date. Whispering “I do” as you release
butterflies into a lush sunlit forest, or getting
hitched on a cinematic vista underneath a
chuppah supported by your loved ones.

Your elopement day is all about you enjoying
meaningful moments tailored to your
relationship — not anyone else’s expectations.
I’ll document each little piece of what makes
you two unique, as you follow your hearts
through a wonder-filled experience.

frequently asked questions

All the answers
you need

do you offer payment plans?

Yes I do! I understand firsthand just how much money you’re investing in your wedding and respect that everyone’s financial situation is different. If it works better for you and your partner’s finances, I am happy to divide the payment up into 3, 4 or 5 equal amounts and spread that out over the months leading up to your wedding. Just let me know you’d like to opt for a payment plan when you’re ready for a contract from me!

< back

HOW FAR DO YOU USUALLY BOOK OUT?

This can be a range. I have had last-minute bookings a month out from a wedding, and I’ve also had couples book me 18 months in advance to secure me for their date. I have also had to turn down couples because I was already booked for their date. My recommendation is to book any vendor you really want for your wedding as soon as you have your wedding date and approximate location established, so you don’t risk losing them to another couple. Saturdays between May - October are especially popular.

< back

WHAT IS NEEDED TO SECURE OUR DATE WITH YOU?

Contact me here [insert link to contact page here] to submit your inquiry. I will be in touch shortly to set-up a consultation and answer any questions you may have. To book your date with me, you will need to review, sign, and return my contract with an initial payment of 50% of your balance to book. Remaining payment is due at least 30 days prior to your wedding. 

< back

WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS BACK? 

For elopements & intimate weddings - You'll receive a sneak peek gallery within 1 week of your day, and your full gallery within 8-12 weeks! For adventure sessions - You'll receive a few sneak peek photos within 1 week of your session, and your full gallery within 4 weeks! 

< back

WHAT IF WE DON'T KNOW WHERE WE'D LIKE TO ELOPE?

No problem! Location scouting is one of my favorite parts of being an elopement photographer. Part of my services include putting together a custom location list of cool spots that fit your vision for your dream elopement day!

< back

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH BIGGER WEDDINGS, TOO? 

While I focus on elopements and tiny weddings, I’m also open to capturing larger celebrations. What matters most to me is the connection I feel with my couples — so if you resonate with my work and my mission, I’d love to chat with you to explore the possibilities!

Aaron & Katanna

Marissa went above and beyond what we expected in a photographer. We met through Instagram and when she took our engagement photos we instantly knew we wanted to work with her again! She helped every step of the way by scouting locations that fit our special needs for our wedding party. Marissa took the time to do research and get to know a disability our MOH had been diagnosed with and found us the perfect location with accessibility and was very understanding with our needs and worked with us to overcome obstacles.⁣

During the wedding day Marissa was a dream to work with. Every moment felt natural with her and she felt like part of the group. She even helped calm me (the bride) and fix my wedding dress during a breakdown before the ceremony, which could not have been an easy task! She captured every bit of love shared that day and all of the funny, candid moments as well. She even managed to perfectly photograph two wild pups who just wanted to be with mom and dad! Her attention to detail is unmatched.⁣ I will forever recommend Marissa if you are looking to elope and need some help along the way!

Amanda & Meghan

We cannot say enough good things about Marissa. When my wife and I started looking for vendors for our elopement, we knew it was not only important, but necessary, for us to find folks who are inclusive to the LGBTQIA+ community. Obviously, as a queer couple, we needed to feel comfortable when it came to who we had working with us.When we turned to Instagram for photographer suggestions, Marissa was recommended. We instantly clicked and could tell that she was not only inclusive to the LGBTQIA+ community, but a clear activist for many marginalized communities. Once we booked with her, it was clear Marissa was going to be so much more than a photographer. Marissa got to work right away figuring out our needs and suggesting local, inclusive vendors. Her help in our planning was immeasurable. Planning even a very small, outdoor elopement proved difficult through coronavirus, but Marissa was with us every step of the way. Two date changes, location closures, in-person meetings cancelled, so much anxiety, last minute decisions, etc. etc., Marissa never even flinched. She was so easy going and helpful.
Not to mention, she's also FUN. My wife and I both consider ourselves camera shy, but Marissa made the process easy. Our photos turned out so beautifully. She truly captured the day as it was. Looking through them feels like reliving the day and we're filled with love all over again.

Cherie & Lee

Marissa was wonderful to work with for our elopement. We decided to do a hike through a forest and a ceremony on the beach. Unfortunately, portions of the trail for our hike were closed due to downed trees. Marissa helped us adjust our plans, and was so supportive throughout the planning process.

On the day of our elopement, Marissa provided an absolutely fantastic balance of planned and impromptu photos that captured so many important moments from our special day. We decided to jump in the ocean and we expected Marissa to take photos of us from the beach. We turned around and she was there with us, capturing images that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

Her care and devotion was apparent from our first meeting. We strongly suggest talking with her and you will find a giving person who listens, provides feedback, and, in turn, will create poignant photos.

From the start of communications, Marissa was clearly
focused on making the wedding day perfect and comfortable
for us. This was first evident when she asked us our Love
Languages in order to better understand and prompt us on
the wedding day.

The final photographs make our wedding feel very cohesive
and Marissa captured our personalities and emotions so
well. She managed to find a great balance with her directions,
having us just be in the moment and focus on one another.
You can see the love and connectedness in the photos and
we never felt pushed beyond our comfort level.

We are beyond happy with all the photos we received, and
cannot imagine another photographer doing as great of a job!
Hire her!

Sophie & Keven

Marissa’s photography is absolutely incredible. Not only is she extremely talented, but she’s wonderful to work with. I’m extremely camera shy. However, she made us so comfortable, which is so important. She also really gets to know her couples. She wanted my husband and I to have the best possible experience, and we did! Our elopement was everything we dreamt of and more. Marissa helped us plan the whole thing, and even constructed a timeline, making the whole day stress-free as it should be. Marissa is a really special person. You can tell how passionate she is about what she does, and you can feel how much she cares about her couples.

Marissa not only helped us plan our whole day, but she even went the extra mile to scout locations for us, and visit our selected locations with us prior to our elopement day. She’s also prepared for everything. She brought us our favorite snacks, blankets, and even hand warmers since the day ended up being a little bit chilly. Her goal is to make sure you’re having the best day of your life, and she really goes the extra mile. Literally the best day ever and we have the most gorgeous photos to prove it. We’re so grateful that Marissa was a part of our elopement. We wouldn’t have done it any other way. I highly recommend her.

Katie & Alex

Getting married this summer with Marissa as our photographer makes me want to recommend eloping to EVERYONE. When we had to cancel our wedding due to COVID, my partner and I didn’t know what to do next — we knew we still wanted to get married, but where? when? what would it look like?

I’m not exaggerating when I say that Marissa saved our day. Not only did she roll with the punches of having to rethink what photography would look like on the day— she also helped us plan and coordinate the entire day’s events. From scouting elopement locations to hiking with us to find the perfect photo spots, she really went above and beyond to help us feel special. She made what could have been a stressful, and possibly sad, day into one of the best days of the entire year.

On top of all that, the photos she took are gorgeous! Really, there’s no downside. She’s such a blast to work with, and we really couldn’t imagine having a better day with any other photographer.
