Timisoara, Romania Wedding I have been trying to write this blog post for a couple weeks now and I still am unsure how to begin. I think I have to start waaaay back when, during a sunrise engagement session the moment Ioan and Iesareela hopped out of their car in Akron, Ohio. FIRST – I’s […]

Also seen on Kentucky Bride Magazine under Real Weddings! There is a piece of my heart saved for just this family. Immediately upon meeting, they engulfed me with kindness. They care for each other so purely, and so fiercely, that I truly hope to embody a love like theirs one day. Genuine, kind and overflowing with light, I am […]

The more I travel, the happier I am. But when I get to travel and meet up with couples like Emily & David?! Well, I’m as happy as a kid on Christmas day! They were absolute rockstars! It takes true New Yorkers to be completely comfortable with thousands of people around. They only have eyes […]

I took a short hiatus a couple weeks ago, and it honestly could not have come at a better time. Unplugging for four days was truly refreshing. YES, you read that right – FOUR days. Granted I still took some photos (the sunsets were unreal!), but I did not bring my DSLR, nor did I […]

This is how the conversation went: “Mariss, can we hike somewhere after I finish Step 1?” “Sure Jen! Anywhere in particular?” “I want to see a National Park!”  Even though we have one in our own backyard, why not out west? So we researched & booked the necessities. My CF card quickly filled with more […]

Bridgette + Mike were two people completely immune to jet lag. Well maybe not, but I am pretty certain getting off a plane at 4am and then doing a sunset anniversary session deserves some kind of award! (If it were me I would be useless the entire day!) But, nope! They were troopers! It’s beautiful […]

I am a big family person. Sunday dinner’s growing up wasn’t an option it was a priority. You were there at the time Grams said so, because it was family time. My immediate family tripled in number when it came to out-of-town weddings, sporting events, or honors ceremonies. When we were little we traveled to Florida every […]
