MEET MARISSA

 

Las Vegas has captured me for most of my adult life, but being born and raised on the islands, my roots are hard pressed into the sands of Kaua'i, HI. I embrace the big cities energetic vibe that Vegas has to offer while living and breathing that Aloha spirit that was instilled into me from a young age. 

 

I am a HUGE animal lover, I'm still waiting for the day I get to photograph a wedding with dogs of all sizes as the wedding party! Lol. I have two fur-babies of my own, Basil, not like the herb, like the bourbon because she was a spicy little pom from the moment I took her home and Zazu, my beagle schnauzer, well, he can melt your heart with just one look. Seriously, I've seen it first hand. I couldn't imagine my world without them in it.

 

I'm a big foodie! All my jobs in my life before making photography my number one, has been in the restaurant and hospitality industry. I love a great ribeye, quality sushi and fine liquors but it's not all swanky restaurants and luxurious food, I can take down a juicy burger and swallow a bag of barbeque chips at 2am while editing in my pjs! Ha!

 

My approach to a wedding is to absolutely always, only put my best foot forward for each and every client I have the pleasure to work with whether it be small intimate elopements, a full days wedding, an engagement session or post wedding portraits. My goal is to keep a relaxed environment, stress-level maintained and to capture true emotions of the day with a little posing advice. Sneak peeks are gold, I love seeing my clients reactions! My style is versatile, but I love a good fun, bold and vibrant photo.
 

You are my why I do this! 

 

You will always have the best of me, that is my promise to you, pinky swear!

 

Enough about me! I can't wait to hear from you!
