Hi, I am Marissa.

I am a Photographer who believes in love, unposed smiles, messy wind swept hair, and capturing the heart of the souls in front of me. I love nothing more than when a couple trusts me enough to follow me back into the woods, with no service, and find some of the best views North Carolina has to offer!

I am a go with the flow, eat all the good food, and a glass of wine at night never hurt anyone, type of person. I am always down for adventure and spontaneity, late night ice cream runs and drives with no destination.

The gym keeps me sane, I love moving my body whether it be cycling, pilates, or going for a hike. And I always have a podcast or audiobook going, lately I've had Brene Brown on repeat, she's the best.

Thanks for taking the time to get to know me better, I can't wait to talk more about your photoshoot and plan and epic adventure with you!





“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!!”
