Hey, I'm Marisa! I work with couples to help capture their dream wedding day! Most days you can find me drinking coffee in front of my computer editing the day away. If I’m not home in the SF Bay Area, I’m most likely in the Sierras or at a session off the grid. 

Hi, i'm Marisa

“Marisa did an amazing job for my wedding day. She made sure to reach out to me before the big day to get an idea of shots we wanted, and a timeline of the event. She was so fun to be with, and communicated very well with the shots she wanted and directed us and guest for the perfect shot. She does a good job making sure she makes everyone feel comfortable. Thank you Marisa for making my special day even more magical!”

"Marisa is such a gem to work with. From start to finish we had a great experience and love our pictures. She took our maternity photos back in January and made me feel very comfortable while shooting. I'm some what uncomfortable in front of the camera and she not only made my experience easy, but loved the end results and it all felt so natural. Reasonable pricing, excellent service, and truly such a nice person to work with. I will be using her services in the future for sure and would definitely recommend. Getting ready to take some family photos with our now 6 month old. Can't wait!!"

“From the time I reached out to Marisa to the wedding day, she was the most friendly, genuine, and honest photographer I had encountered. She freely gave her time whenever I needed to talk things over. On the wedding day, Marisa came way early and stayed over to make sure she captured the best photos of our wedding. The pictures captured the romance of the ceremony in the rain, the many lights, and the beautiful decor. Her work showed her skill to work with minimum light and yet produce jaw dropping pictures. Every time I look at them I relive our very special wedding day.”


“I had a great experience working with Marisa to capture my first ever maternity shoot featuring my family. Marisa made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera although I’m quite shy. She also got my daughter to smile during the cold weather, capturing the most amazing shots. Her patience and love for photography is displayed in her work. I’m still in awe over how beautiful my photos are. I’m definitely looking forward to choosing Marisa as my photographer again.”
