Hello lovelies! My name is Marissa and I’m the one behind the camera of Marissa Elise Photography saying “that’s so cute!” and “wow, that’s great!” I grew up in a small town in Maine and currently live in the heart of Ellsworth. I balance a full-time job, being a loving cat-mom of two adopted fur babies, Milo & Oats, and photographing genuine moments of people for all of life’s special moments (senior graduations, maternity/motherhood, families, and the list goes on!).
When I’m not working (or snuggling my cats), I’m either surrounded by my fun-loving friends or at the gym lifting weights. Other important things to know about me are that I love: cheese (feta, brie, goat – they’re all gouda!), puns (guaranteed to get a laugh from me), traveling anywhere and everywhere (especially with someone who has a sense of direction because I most certainly do not), and the color purple (right now it’s “dusty purple,” to be specific).
The most important thing you should know is that I love my life and I hope you become a part of it by asking me to photograph your special moments!
