"I don't know how she did it, but Marissa took the most beautiful photos of our wedding without us hardly noticing, and captured moments we'll treasure for the rest of our lives. I don't recall seeing her in and out of some of the intimate scenes she captured - she was always in the middle of the right moment, enabling us to experience the joy of it while she captured the feeling.
We are so thankful to have such a beautiful collection of wedding photos, but are more so thrilled to have met this amazing woman and artist who briefly stepped into our lives and documented our beautiful, memorable wedding day!"
