You and your love belong here.

Too many people get left out of the conventional ideas of what a wedding should be. Your elopement is a safe space where your unique love story can be celebrated and documented — exactly the way it is

I’m not just here to capture every smitten look and enchanted moment. I’ll be there to help you through the steps of planning your elopement, too.

Every elopement package includes:

Personalized location list & permit assistance to find your dream location

Client Guide – Over 75+ pages of tips & tricks to planning your dream elopement

Access to an easy-to-use online shop to order prints & albums through printing labs

Client Guide – Over 75+ pages of tips & tricks to planning your dream elopement

Professional guidance on timeline planning to get you the best light and keep things relaxed

Vendor & Airbnb recommendations to help your vision come to life

Custom questionnaires, so I can ensure your wedding experience truly honors your love story

Together with my camera, I’ll be a supportive advocate of your unique love story every step of the way. Where all love and all bodies are celebrated in photographs to cherish for the rest of your life.

How I cater to offbeat weddings

Quite frankly the wedding industry remains very ableist/sizeist/racist/heteronormative, and as a result the media representation of any people or relationships that don’t fit in the box of thin/white/straight/non-disabled is still very small.

I want to change that.

The best way I’ve found in my business is to simply create the work and celebrate the relationships I want to see better represented in the wedding industry, and bring more vendors in that share the same goals. The ripple effect of that can be so incredible and I’ve seen how validating it can be for clients I’ve worked with to be able to see themselves celebrated and photographed in that way, and also for others to be able to see a body, identity or relationship that looks like theirs. 

I consider myself a “wedding industry disruptor” because I want to see to it that more people feel seen and celebrated for who they are and who they love throughout their wedding planning process and beyond.

A little about my own wedding experience –

My partner and I went from planning a traditional 100 person wedding to realizing that wasn’t what truly felt like “us”, and switched gears to have an intimate Oregon forest elopement instead. We had a teary-eyed first look, a live butterfly release during our ceremony, and romantic portraits in front of a waterfall. I ripped a hole in my dress on a tree root. We ate S’mores by the campfire. My husband even took my last name! It was all perfect.

We followed our hearts, and I’m so glad we did.

Now I’m here to help lovers (like you!) follow your hearts in having a truly unique and meaningful wedding experience.

I want you to not only feel seen, but celebrated in choosing your own adventure for your wedding day and have someone there who is going to document your love story genuinely. I’m always open to travel and can’t wait to document and help celebrate your unique love story!

Your Love Is A Light For Others

Did you know I donate 5% of every booking to nonprofits serving vulnerable communities, people, environments, and wildlife? The best part is that you get to pick which one from a list! So you can feel good about booking me to document your love AND know your investment is tangibly helping others, too. Nonprofits I support include – The Trevor Project, National Forest Foundation, Hope & Safety Alliance, Equitable Giving Circle, Adelante Mujeres, and The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation.

"There is so much to say about Marissa! Not only was her kind, adventurous and thoughtful personality a warm welcome in the wedding process - I am in awe of the photographs I will forever cherish, and inspired by her strong business practices. Our photos are unique, they speak to our personalities, our spirit when we are together and they were beautifully edited to preserve those memories, not painted into something different.
