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.

You’d never know this pair shared a bit of nervousness in anticipation of their engagement session. Complete naturals! But that just speaks to Rick and Kelley’s love for each other…its so natural, so beautiful to watch and especially capture on camera. Imagine the lushest greenery, the tallest stretch of trees, and an open field with grasses beyond measure. Their spring engagement session at Kinder Farm Park will be the perfect contrast to their winter wedding this upcoming February. When I say ‘I can’t wait!’ I truly mean it. Perhaps a little snow fall? Fingers crossed!

Flashback Friday! This couple will tie the knot at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club in just a few short weeks. I photographed their engagement session in the great city of Baltimore just last year. Can you tell I’m playing catchup on blogging? Baltimore is quite special to this pair as it is where their love story began. For their engagement session we traipsed around the promenade at the Ritz Carlton and Harbourview Towers. We also used the American Visionary Arts Museum as a beautiful backdrop at the beginning of their session. You can definitely say I am counting down the days until they say I do!

This gorgeous, bayside engagement session in Annapolis, MD is near and dear to my heart. That dark haired beauty is my cousin, Angela. Her handsome fella is Adam. These two were the very first couple I photographed at the beginning of my photography career. It feels like forever ago and yet I remember it so vividly. A couple had asked me to photograph their engagement pictures. I was filled with excitement and a complete ball of nerves. No more landscapes, potted plants (literally how I tested and learned apertures!). A real life couple! Angela and Adam were sweet enough to play model and let me experiment with posing, lighting, etc. It is crazy to think how far my business has come and style has developed since then and yet its so wonderful to know that they have one of those very first images displayed within their home. In September, these high school sweet hearts will tie the knot. Its going to be one heck of a celebration and I absolutely can’t wait!

Ready to swoon? Because that is exactly what I did the entire time I photographed Ben and Amy’s engagement session at Butler’s Orchard. By this point you have heard me gush about this incredible family farm. Each and every dirt road along the property leads you to yet another charming, sunlit spot. The pair will wed this September and you better believe I am counting down the days!

You may recognize this pair from their engagement and wedding posts last year. Since then, this duo has turned into a trio. Welcome to the world little Rory! They are building their beautiful forever home in Clarksville, Maryland and their soon-to-be residence provided the perfect sunlit backdrop. I absolutely love lifestyle newborn photography sessions using the beauty of the outdoors. They are moment-focused — capturing that undeniable love between parents and their children.
