Hi, I create art.
I'm a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Asheville, North Carolina. I love capturing real, raw, and intimate moments. My favorite is couples that are so in love that they can't stop giggling and staring at each other during their shoot- that is what I LIVE for.
I believe love is the fabric of the Universe and that it has the power to change lives. I am a LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC ally, you are not just accepted here, but CELEBRATED.
Capturing the heart of the souls in front of me is my jam. Hold up… what does that mean? I live for authenticity, intentionality, and one-of-a-kind moments. I promise letting go of how you think your wedding day or photoshoot is supposed to go and just spending time with your loved ones, fully invested in each moment, will give you the most stunning photos.
I LOVE going on adventures! North Carolina is one of the most beautiful places on earth and I love exploring. I am always down to get up at the crack of dawn, drive far out into the forest, and explore new locations. Those mountain waterfalls nestled deep within the Blue Ridge Mountains? Lead the way, I'm right behind you! I also love to travel if there is a location you want pictures at, let's talk about it!
Hey, I'm Marissa.
I am a Montana girl born and raised living in the mountains of North Carolina. If you love raw + authentic moments, anything and everything outside, getting a little dirty during a photoshoot, and open to an adventure..... I am your gal!
