Photographing your story the way it's meant to be told

Hey friend,

I'm all for you having your best time, experience and vision come to life. I love to learn all about your love, that way I can translate it into photos that look and feel like you. I'm so passionate about documenting stories the way they were meant to be told, nothing fabricated, celebrating love and the wonderful people in them. I'm here to focus on you and what you want. I will be here every step of the way from the moment you inquire til gallery delivery day and forever on after.

“It takes someone truly special to be able to capture every pure, genuine part of you in photographs so beautiful they bring me to tears every time I look."

I wish I had an adequate word to sum up our gratitude for Marissa over the last year of our lives. It takes someone truly special to be able to capture every pure, genuine part of you in photographs so beautiful they bring me to tears every time I look. Marissa is that - something SPECIAL. From our first conversation, to our engagement photos on the beach, to our wedding day, Marissa was something out of my dreams... What we got was someone who not only captured us authentically (& beautifully!!!), but someone who got to KNOW us... When I think of Marissa, I feel so lucky to have chosen someone who has the upmost passion for what she does. The day after my wedding, someone asked "how did you meet Marissa? It's so cool a friend was able to be your wedding photographer!" While we didn't start this process knowing one another as friends, what a testament that comment is to her approach-she is warm, she is light, she is a friend by the end... Love love love you guys beyond words.

“Marissa will make your wedding photos glow with the same
Heartfelt warmth you feel on your wedding day!”

Marissa will make your wedding photos glow with the same heartfelt warmth you feel on your wedding day! She is a master with light, and knows how to work with it, and frame her subjects around it to create a truly breathtaking image. Trust me, with her soft, luminous tones and warm editing style, every bride should want Marissa to photograph them on their big day. On top of that, she’s super easygoing, incredibly kind and a true professional. Her work process and level of communication made me (the bride) feel at ease every step of the way. We wanted wedding photos that went beyond the generic and were truly original; and Marissa delivered on that. Each image is layered with warmth, heart and her signature golden light. A day as special as your wedding day deserves a special talent to capture it. We couldn’t be more thrilled with our wedding images! Thank you Marissa!

“Pictures are worth one thousand words, but hers are worth a million.”

Pictures are worth one thousand words, but hers are worth a million. We hired her for our engagement/wedding photos and literally were crying and laughing and overjoyed with the photos she delivered. MNP captures each moment is the truest sense. She has an organic feel to her photos because she brings out your most authentic self. I normally hate being in front of a camera, but she will make you feel like a model. She is down to earth and kind and will make you feel so comfortable while getting the best photos. If you have any doubts, go check out her work.....its all you need to know.

“Our pictures came out so beautiful that we asked her to be our
wedding photographer! She flew all the way to Maine..."

First of all, I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to shoot my engagement pictures back in April. My fiancé and I were traveling to Florida for vacation and found Marissa via social media and she was incredible. In just one hour she was able to capture our love in the most natural way. Despite never meeting her before it felt like we had known her forever. Our pictures came out so beautiful that we asked her to be our wedding photographer! She flew all the way to Maine and went above and beyond all of our expectations. She captured our wedding in a way that I didn’t even know was possible. It was a fairy tale and she made all my dreams come true. I would recommend Marissa to everyone and anyone!
Of course now I wish she lived closer :)

“Marissa was the only photographer we reached out to and was honestly the best decision we made."

Marissa is truly amazing & delivers the most dreamiest warm pictures! I stumbled across MNP on instagram and fell in love with her beautiful images. I lurked her page for months for wedding inspo & finally decided to inquire about her services. Marissa was the only photographer we reached out to and was honestly the best decision we made. She is super amazing, friendly and easy to communicate with. After our engagement photos my husband was so happy that he didn’t feel awkward being in front of the camera during our session that he immediately called her our best friend! When it came to wedding day she captured the most amazing moments in the most beautiful way.
We love you & will continue to support your work!
