Carissa Marie Photography

intentional imagery and artful storytelling

“If I’m shinin’, everybody gonna shine” – this lyric by the queen, Lizzo, is kinda how I try to motto my biz. With a genuine attitude and chilled-out vibe, my only goal is to hold space for you to shine bright and fearlessly. Inclusive to all, sans discrimination, I am here for you just as you are.

Dancing to your own beat, you are whole.

Whether it’s a wedding, elopement, birth or lifestyle sesh, you can rest easy knowing that I’ll be 100% focused on you, your emotions, and the energy of the room. You deserve someone who is going to respect you and make you feel ridiculously comfortable throughout the day. Capturing all the tear-jerkin’ highlights and the perfectly imperfect in-between moments; so you can simply be present and savour all the magic as it’s happening.

Always listening and encouraging, let me support you and create a stress-free environment for you to be YOU.

From the minute you inquire to the day you receive your gallery – I’ll have your back 100% of the time.

When you look back on your gallery and relive all the heart-filling moments (including ones you didn’t even know were happening), you’ll know these memories are yours to safe keep forevermore.

Your no-BS photographer, advocate, and cheerleader, let’s celebrate you.

Fun facts

What do you consider your style to be?

Timeless, Emotive, Intimate, Honest, Impassioned, Romantic, Light-hearted and Editorial.

What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with?

I tend to fit best with those who care about investing in great images but mostly those who are more laid back and are down to have a good time together. I don't like to say that I have an ideal client but if I were to generalize, it would simply be a couple / person(s) who are kind and willing to 100% be themselves in front of my camera :)

Where do you find your design inspiration?

I love to look outside my profession and find that I find inspiration through movies, tv shows and old vogue magazines.

What is your favorite part about a wedding?

I love getting to know the couple I am photographing! I love watching them interact with one another, I love making their day special based on who they are together and individually. I love connecting with them and creating a bond so we can capture images that truly reflect who they are.
