Marissa is such a dedicated and skillful photographer, willing to offer guidance and direction to her customers during her shoots and her personality is always kind and friendly, which is so important especially if it’s your big day and you don’t have experience being photographed.

I love that her style has a very candid feel as she captures the emotion of the moment because it makes the images looks so natural and pure making for the most beautiful  keepsakes. A great plus, her rates are super friendly! So if you’re looking for a talented, easy going and super profesional photographer, Marissa is your best bet, get her now before she’s fully booked!!

We loved having Marissa do our photos this spring! She was willing to come to our property and we felt so comfortable having her in our home. She was kind, gracious, and really great with the kids! We now have beautiful photos we will cherish for a lifetime.

The very wonderful marissa has been photographing me from the beginning of her photography journey, she has been nothing short of talented from day 1. Being someone who is so awkward in front of a camera, who never quite knows what to do with my limbs or face… she has always found ways to make me feel comfortable, and my most beautiful self. With her unique skillset she has always turned my favourite memories into beautiful, meaningful art that I get to keep forever. I have always appreciated her warm and bubbly presence making it so easy to have fun with being on the other end of a camera. Marissa has helped with letting go of my brains expectations and instead focusing on the authentic moment. I have watched her passion for photography morph into a true gift and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to capture their moments too :)

Wow!! I've been waiting to give my review as I couldn't wait to tell everyone how much fun we had with Marissa!! It was our 5 year anniversary and my boyfriend and I wanted to have some nice photos together as all we have are cellphone selfies. Marissa made us both feel comfortable and not awkward in front of the camera. I was worried that I would not know how to pose with my boyfriend but Marissa made it so easy and the photos turned out great! I can't recommend her enough. Thank you Marissa!!
Erika G. Married couple on 19 Aug 2023
Marissa was lovely! She was professional but also very fun to work with. We did a photo session with her during a bachelorette trip and she really made our time in Kelowna a trip to remember. We couldn't have been happier, she made our bride feel so special and truly went above and beyond. She took care of the decor and props to make everything even more special. Thank you so much, Marissa!! :)
Jen Day Married couple on 02 Sep 2023
I cannot put into words how unbelievably talented Marissa is, but I’m going to try.

I chose Marissa to do a family photoshoot for myself, my boyfriend, and our dog and I truly couldn’t be any happier with the choice! Marissa is lovely - I have worked with her now both professionally and personally and she is an absolute dream to work with. She was very understanding and flexible when we had to rearrange our dates for the shoot, she listened and understood my vision for the photos, and she was AMAZING with our pup! I can’t say enough goods things about her. She captured our relationship so perfectly and candidly.

We are SO GRATEFUL to Marissa for these photos because this ended up being the day my now fiancé proposed. We will cherish these pictures for the rest of our lives and look back at this time with such fond memories. I can’t recommend her enough!

Photographer Photos by Marissa Okanagan About me

One of my favourite things is getting together with friends and family and looking at old photos. There is always a story behind each one. It's during those moments of sharing a memory that my love for photography grows.     My passion for photography started as a teenager. I was born and raised in North Vancouver surrounded by the city skyline, mountains, and ocean. A truly a beautiful place to grow up.     But Kelowna has always been my second home. It's the  place my family and I frequented during the summer. It is where some of my most cherished memories have been made. So in 2013 I made the move to the Okanagan permanently.     In 2014 I started to capture photos of friends, and then it was friends-of-friends, and soon enough I had people from all walks of life wanting to have their most special moments captured.     My goal with my photography is to preserve a moment. So when you are sharing your images with your loved ones they get to relive that memory too.
