MISA ME Photography bio picture
  • HELLO AND WELCOME! I am Marisa, a wedding and portrait photographer based in Annapolis, MD. I'm a believer in collecting life's little moments, not things. Endlessly inspired by laughter and a chaser of that dreamy light. My photographic style in three words…fresh, candid, always with a touch of sun flare!

    A bit of hustle and a lot of heart have brought me in touch with some of the most incredible families, couples and individuals. With every snap shot taken, I'm reminded that life should always be an adventure filled with new faces, inspiring places, and stories to share.

    It is my hope that the images we create together will allow you to relive your life's greatest adventures for years to come.

Tom and Mandy’s wedding at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore was such an incredible experience! We were given the opportunity to explore parts of the zoo that have been closed to the public for quite some time. The mix of overgrown landscape, stone structures, and last few moments of sunlight left me feeling enchanted. These two share a contagious sense of adventure which we captured during their engagement session earlier last year. The Maryland Zoo just made perfect sense! I only hope to have the opportunity to photograph there again. As for you, Mandy and Tom, my hiking boots are ready for another adventure! Thank you for bringing me along to capture your amazing wedding day.

    I’m thrilled that Tom and Mandy are a match that makes their

    love of nature and photography and love one to each another, are

    two pieces of their puzzle for life. With many pieces that their

    future moves in time, shall be as beautiful as they both are.

    Such a gorgeous wedding and couple at the maryland zoo!

Culling through these images in preparation for today’s blog post was such a treat! I found myself as giddy as these three beautiful sisters in each image. Recounting the sweet interactions mom and dad had with their little girls. Something as simple as a quick kiss shared between the two as one of their daughters tugged on their clothes for attention. Or the way this little trio hugged their dad so tight with all their might. Moments of jumping for joy as we (including me!) shouted our favorite types of ice cream and roared like dinosaurs. This blog post brings me back to the joy I truly feel from my job as a photographer.

Giving the gift of portraits. Something I’ve preached more times than I can count in this little web space of mine. Chelsea wanted to give her mother a special momento — images of her children and grandchildren all together as one. Doing what they normally do in their every day. Living, laughing, and loving as a family. Mission accomplished and what a smile it did bring to her mother’s face!

    Such an adorable little family! I love these!

    Adorbs! Always with the yummy, gorgeous light!

    oh my gosh…I’m in love with this session! It is just so sweet, you can feel the love that they have for each other. The mom’s laugh is amazing and you just really captured their connection.

The Outer Banks in North Carolina have always held a special place in my heart. My family has been vacationing along the North Carolina shoreline since my parents were children. I’m grateful the tradition has been carried throughout the years and remained a part of our family’s summer rituals. Call me biased but this past summer’s vacation was one of the best because my sweet little niece, Colette, came into the world just a few short weeks prior. In an effort to preserve these special little moments, we scrambled (literally!) before a family dinner to grab a handful of photographs as the sun set. I adore these sun filled images and this beautiful family more than words can describe.

    Such a gorgeous family session! I want my own Outer Banks session now too!

    ohhh these are the most precious. We’ll be in the OBX for our next retreat in March. SO excited!!

THIS couple! This beautiful, beautiful couple! Any time they contact me for any sort of photography services I literally squeal with excitement. Tyler’s family owns Butler’s Orchard in Maryland. It is a sight to be seen and was also the chosen location for their wedding celebration and even engagement! The sunlit fields go on for days. My version of a photographer’s ultimate playground. You can only imagine my excitement when Erika reached out inquiring about a trash the dress session. Truthfully, I could have spent hours upon hours photographing these two.

    Wow. Are you kidding me?! Marisa, this session is everything. It goes from innocent to romantic to sexy and everything in between. This is definitely some of my favorite stuff from you.

  • Dani - January 7, 2016 - 10:23 am

    Ahhhh, that gorgeous light! Makes me miss end of summer into fall season where everything is golden and yummy. Super gorgeous images!!
