Jessica + Ben | Wedding in Black Butte, Oregon

I knew as soon as I met Jessica and Ben that I would love being their wedding photographer. With Jessica's easy laugh and Ben's sweet spirit, I was looking forward to photographing their big day. The day was beautiful, the guests were merry and the couple was resplendent in their wedding finery! And the cake! Don't get me started on how good the cake was. Wow! 

Sophie + Colin | Small Wedding at Pioneer Park

Sophie and Colin were having a small wedding and only needed a photographer for a couple of hours. It was a darling ceremony and the fastest vows I've ever seen! 

Briana + Robert | A wedding at Brasada Ranch

I love photographing small, sweet ceremonies! Robert and Briana had gorgeous fall weather for their wedding at Brasada Ranch. Rich oranges, blue skies and golden sun. Perfect!

Angie + Alex | A wedding on the Metolius River

Angie and Alex chose to have their wedding in a place that meant a lot to Angie. Her family has been coming to a little cabin along the shores of the gorgeous Metolius River for years. Their rustic cabin has seen many family milestones -- now including a very special wedding.

Jessica + David | A Wedding at Ranch at the Canyons

What a sublime venue for a wedding. Did I blink or was a transported to Tuscany? Jessica and David's big day was my favorite wedding of my career. It was a scorching hot day in Central Oregon, but the sweeping views, the wonderful people and the all-girl creative team (including Tambi Lane, my second photographer) ensure the day would be nothing other than splendid. 

It was a pure joy to be the storyteller for Jessica and David's wedding. I'm looking forward to staying connected with them and seeing how their lives together unfold. Thank you for including me, you two! 

What they said: 
Marisa was the most AMAZING person to work with! She was very accomodating as we live in Portland and were traveling over to Bend a few times before the wedding, making sure that we got our engagement photos on the right day, in the right place, with weather and lighting in mind. She is exceptionally personable and made us feel very comfortable when having our picture taken is not natural. Marisa met us at the venue the day before to scope out the perfect spots to have our pictures taken. And the day of... she was extemely professional, put everyone at ease throughout the day and got some of the most incredible shots!! Her end products are UNBELIEVABLE!!!
