Meet Marissa

Heart & Soul of Light Rae Exposures

I am an empath & I live for documenting the honest moments of your big day. I notice the in between moments that tell the story of your relationship as they sew together your big day. Bringing your love into the realms of digital art that we create together.
I love exercising my creative eye with drawing, painting or any type of DIY projects. If I am not creating I am on an adventure or training dogs.

Your Investment

Below are my three wedding packages that I currently offer. If a package doesn't fit your needs, let's chat about it!

I want to make sure that you get everything that you want out of our experience together.

Investing in your wedding photography is the number one priority because it will be the only thing that can freeze the moment in time. The photos are hand picked and crafted to tell a story of your love. They capture the details & emotions to remember when the memory starts to fade.

You don't have to ask me twice to travel!

If the session is taking place outside the Denver metro area I do have an hourly travel fee of $20 for the round trip.

All travel costs, including mileage, airfare, hotel & rental car are covered by the client. Travel fees are calculated depending on the date & location of your wedding season. Please inquire for a travel quote.


can I have the raw files?

The short answer, no. A few reasons why. RAW files are very large and take up a lot of space and they are very unflattering to the eye. You are paying for the artistic ability and knowledge and to have trust in your photographer to get the photos you want and have them edited to perfection.

Do you travel?

Yes! Yes! Yes! I love traveling and miss the days when I was a flight attendant. Please, take me to knew places. Outside of the Denver metro area I have a $20 travel fee-round trip for the hours on the road.

Can I change outfits?

Yes, of course! This is your time to shine! Keep in mind how long it takes you to change so it doesn't eat up your time.

Are you an established business?

Yes I am ! Photography is my full time job. I established my LLC in 2020 and turned my dreams into reality! I have always taken photos as a side gig for 11 years and I FINALLY made the plunge and became my own boss.

Do you photoshop photos?

I use Lightroom manly and I will bring photos into photoshop for some extra TLC. I don't photoshop your appearance unless asked to do so and there is an upcharge per photo. I do this because I want you to fall in love with you. With that said if you want me to I can and have the experience to do so.

when will we receive our photos?

The delivery time varies depending on how many session I have in the post production process. You will at least receive a sneak peak within 48 hours. Leave up to 35 days for the final gallery.

Do you bring back up gear?

Yes! I always bring backup gear just in case in the off chance something malfunctions or we are needing more light. I will have external flashes, SD cards, lenses and batteries ready to go! I come prepared for all scenarios!

Help! I'm awkward in front of the camera

Awkward? Is that a challenge? Don't you worry. I have been on both sides of the camera and I know how to direct, get the angles we want and tell you where to put your hands. ALL while feeling confident and having a blast with me!
