Welcome, I'm Marissa. She/her

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! I am an LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC ally, you are not just accepted here, but CELEBRATED. 

I LOVE going on adventures! I am always down to get up at the crack of dawn, drive far out into the forest, and explore new locations.

With 50+ weddings under my belt, I am your go-to for any and all questions you may have about scheduling, ideas, and timelines. Your day is whatever you make it. There are no rules and I firmly believe your wedding day should be unique to YOU. I can't wait to talk more about all the ideas you have. Head over to my contact page to chat more!


Marissa Irene


“When we were deciding who to hire to capture our wedding day, we had many different factors to consider. We talked experience, pricing and portfolios of course but most importantly, we wanted someone who is passionate about what they do and passionate about love. Marissa was the PERFECT choice for us! Her work truly speaks for itself - With an incredible eye for beauty and a genuine love for people, Marissa exceeds all expectations.”

“Marissa made every photo session feel easy, natural and fun. She’s willing to go the extra mile to get the perfect shot. Marissa literally went the extra mile when she hiked with us in a rain storm up the Beartooth mountains to get all the shots we wanted. On the wedding day she helped organize everyone to make sure we got all the shots we needed. Her ability to keep a calm attitude made us feel more at ease on such a stressful day. Highly recommend for ALL your photography needs.”

“Love love love Marissa Irene Photography!! Marissa took my engagement photos and they were absolutely STUNNING! My fiancé and I loved working Marissa! Not only did she do AMAZING work, but she made us feel incredibly comfortable. We had so much fun during the shoot and Marissa was so easy going that there was no stress of being in front of the camera. We couldn’t have been happier when we got our pictures back. I kid you not, we loved them all. I’d recommend Marissa time and time again!!”

“Marissa was a joy to work with. Her easy going personality made us feel comfortable during our photo shoot, and the result was something we will cherish for a lifetime. Marissa helped us celebrate the purchase of our new home with a fun home shoot with our dogs, and I wouldn’t change a thing. I would highly recommend Marissa Irene Photography for her quality photos and great experiences.”

“LOVED doing a boudoir shoot with Marissa Irene photography- she knew of so many beautiful spots to take me and helped me pose in whatever way suited the shot best. She was patient, kind, and thoughtful during the entire process- And we had so much fun! Being half naked in the woods was the best decision EVER and I would highly recommend a boudoir shoot with her to everyone. Not only will my photos be a fun gift for my husband, but I get to look at them and feel beautiful in ways that I don’t ever get to see”
