I'm an energized, and self-taught photographer from Winnipeg, Manitoba. 


During my photo sessions, I love to get caught up in conversation, and talk about anything and everything. It doesn't matter what type of photo sessions my clients are doing, I love to provide a relaxed, enjoyable, and carefree feeling to the photo session, which can be seen in my photos. 


In my free time I thoroughly enjoy drinking tea, tenpin bowling, golfing, and travelling, and simply just getting lost in strange yet beautfiul places. It was at a young age that I began taking photos, whether it was with my phone, or my parents' digital camera. Then in 2014 for Christmas, my parents gave me my first DSLR camera, and my creativity and passion for photography took off from there. 


In terms of my experience I have taken four photo courses in high school, but hope to take more photography courses in the future. 


Now that you have heard about me, I would love to hear from you and talk about your session.  :)

About Marissa

Hey Friend! I'm Marissa! Wedding and Portrait Photographer in Winnipeg, Manitoba!



Chai tea latte lover, born and raised in the heart of Manitoba, down for any new travel destinations you want to encounter, sports enthusiast, and family oriented gal! 


These are just a few things that explain me in the best possible way! Now I can't leave you hanging with just that so, let me know to explain why each of these things is important to me! 


First things first, I love to travel! Seeing new places, encountering new adventures, and possibly getting lost, it is the best feeling in the entire world. Fortunately enough I've had the opportunity to travel Europe (specifically England, Ireland, and Wales), various parts of the United States, and across our amazing country of Canada. Although traveling is one of my favorite things to do, it's home in Winnipeg that I love doing prairie weddings so much! 


Next, I'm not a coffee drinker (I know I'm weird, haha). I tried it once or twice and I've had to spit it out every time, hence is why I'm a chai tea kind of person or even tea in general! 


Now, although traveling and chai tea latte are my jam, I'm also a sport driven person. Outside of photography, I'm an athlete in two sports golf and tenpin bowling. It is also because of these two sports I've had the opportunity to travel to the places I have. 


Finally, I'm a family oriented girl who can't imagine a day without her family. No matter what I'm doing, what life has in store, I always keep my family with me in some way everywhere I go. They are the people that keep me grounded in all situations and times of life. This is also a key reason why I love getting to know the families I work with through my couples or general sessions. I truly believe family not only shapes who you are as a person or as people, but are the most important people that will stand by your side throughout your life. 


These are just a few of the things that describe me! Now I want to know all about you in order to make your day a complete success! 

Why are we the best fit?

I want us to be wild together, have fun, be who we truly are. 

It is through connections like this that I become more than just your photographer, but a new found friend. Through the adventures we will have together, coffee meetings we'll have, and all the conversations in between, we will get to know each other as if we've known each other for years. 


Now I know this sounds like a lot at once but, I want to make sure you know what it will be like working together so we both know we are the best fit! The fact that you love my work warms my heart, but that's only the beginning! We will build a connection unlike any other which will all result in photographs that you can look back on for years to come and say, "I remember that!"
