Josh + Yancey

When I became engaged, my fiancé and I knew she would be the perfect fit for our wedding day. It was very easy to plan with Marissa and she gave great pointers and suggestions. On the big day, her calm demeanor, experienced background, and flexible personality were the perfect match for us. She sent us a sneak peak only two days later and the photos were incredible! Marissa captured our day perfectly and she is our top photographer choice for future life events!
