Wedding Photography

With a Timeless Feel

I'm Marisa

Chicago Wedding Photographer

Growing up looking through family albums of my massive immediate family, I grew to love the photos that brought familiarity. The photos where the subject's guard was down, and you can hear the laughter in the photos.  

This is the energy I bring to documenting your day. I’ll be the perfect mix of a fly on the wall and your Grandpa Wally with the camera. Experiencing moments on your own while also experiencing moments with me as your photographer as I enter your space.

Love Letters

-Alison, Wedding Client

She is such a sweetheart and made us feel very comfortable since taking pictures can feel unnatural. The morning of the wedding was stressful but the moment Marisa walked in it was like all the weight was lifted. We are just beyond impressed in how helpful she was all around.
Not only was she kind, she was very professional and you can tell she’s very good at what she does. 

"From the moment we met Marisa it was like we’ve known her for years"

- Laura, Wedding Client

"Marisa is a phenomenal photographer. We hired her for our wedding in upstate NY and were absolutely thrilled with her photography, her work ethic, vision, and charisma. She charmed all of our guests and was so attentive to all of our needs - she captured everything like a dream. I highly highly HIGHLY recommend Marisa to anyone who is seeking magazine-like photography.

"HIRE HER!!!!!!"

- Laura, Family Client

We have used her for several occasions capturing milestones for our family. She never disappoints! She is a pleasure to work with, is super laid-back and makes you feel so comfortable in a situation that can sometimes feel uncomfortable. She is responsive to all communication and the turnaround to get our photo gallery was incredibly fast! I love her style and she has us as clients for life!

"Marisa is the absolute best!"

-Ninette, Wedding Client

 In the day of she was organized and had lots of ideas. She also made an effort to get to know our guests and family so she could get the best photographs that truly represented our day. They turned out amazing and were a truly perfect representation of our day. I would hire her again and again!

She spent so much time getting to know me and finding out exactly what we wanted.
