I went to Southwestern Michigan College and Andrews University for a total of 5 years of photography education, with a focus in commercial still life. I took a detour and began working for a local bank where I have been for several years. Photography has continued to be a passion that I pursued by assisting friends and other photographers for weddings as well as doing some independent work for people I know.
I am very happily married and we have two beautiful baby girls that are only 15 months apart in age. They changed me in ways I didn't expect and have inspired me to follow my heart to do this thing I love so much. In my spare time, I love to go to concerts and comedy shows with my husband, going to the movies and I enjoy catching up with friends over drinks on a patio in the sunshine.
I am passionate about photographing engagements, weddings and families of all kinds. For me, it's about the little things that make a grand love. My favorite moments in life are the completely unposed that reflect a natural connection.

Hi there! My name is Marissa and I am excited to have just celebrated my two year anniversary of my journey with my photography business. I have been taking photos since junior high and started with snapshots of friends and had a huge passion for all things weather. Many of my early photos are of clouds and the sky. I got my first camera when I was a Sophomore in high school and have been in love ever since.
