Hi! Thank you for stopping by to learn more about me, my work and what makes me tick! I’m Marisa. A native to the gorgeous state of Arizona. The desert landscape, incredible sunsets and summer monsoons are what run through my veins and continue to inspire me and my photography. 


“…in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who's ever lived: I've loved another with all my heart and soul — and to me, this has always been enough."
-the Notebook

day, I’m hanging out with my husband of 10 years and our two littles, Jack and Hazel. 

Life is busy and colorful with two young children and a thriving business, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! During the week you’ll find me at one of my several “offices” around town, Berdena’s in Old Town, La Grande Orange in Phoenix or my favorite neighborhood Starbucks. I love getting out of the house and feeding off the energy around me, usually listening to my favorite podcast or playlist and editing the day away. If you see me out please come over and say "HI!"

I love exploring the seemingly endless hiking trails around Scottsdale/Phoenix, taking in all the beauty they offer and using that to highlight the single most important element in all my images, my COUPLES. It’s capturing the unique love they share that really gets me excited and inspired! The interactions, inside jokes and tender moments are what I LIVE to capture!

When I’m not exploring the open landscape of Arizona, photographing an engagement or wedding 

The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.
