Memories brought to life

Documenting images that honor your story and celebrate your legacy of love and light.

Driven by a deep love of family and faith, I'm rooted in the kind of perspective that discovers meaning in the mundane and joy in the everyday beauty called life. I believe in leading with love, compassion, and listening to the moments that make up your story. More than just creating artful images for weddings, families, and newborns, I believe in the generational impact of photography to pass down heirlooms for years to come. Friend, you're invited to stay awhile, share your story, and settle in to an experience that captures your authentic joy.

PA based & East coast Wedding, Family, And Newborn Photographer

Kind words

"Marisa is the best of the best! We’ve had her shoot 5 of our life events so far and as long as she’s a photographer, she’ll be ours! From our wedding, Christmas minis, maternity, 48 hours fresh (newborn in hospital), and family photos, Marisa does it all. She is the easiest to work with, flexible, easy-going and super kind on top of her talent."

-Jeni W.

"Marisa has artfully and beautifully captured many important milestones in our lives from newborn shoots to first birthdays to family holiday pictures. We look forward to working with her each and every time. With Marisa you not only receive stunning photos that will last a lifetime, but you also gain a warm and inviting friend!"

-Anna M.

"From the minute we had our first zoom call last year to “meet” I knew Marisa was absolutely the photographer for us! I remember just saying “okay where do we sign??” Because I knew there was no need to look any further. Her work is incredible and Marisa, as a person, is equally as incredible! I have/will continue to recommend her to anyone I know." 

-Christy W.

After a sweet session taking photos of my 7 month old in a sunflower patch in late July of 2017, (while also pregnant with baby number 2) I posted on Facebook offering a few mini sessions for families and the rest is history! After 6+ years in business, MKP is proud to serve countless couples and families through documenting cherished memories of love.

As a wife to my high school sweetheart, follower of Jesus, and a mom of 3, I'm a big believer in finding any reason to celebrate life. Promises, proposals, weddings, and welcoming the newest member of the family are the kind of joys I care deeply about. 

I'm an East Coast photographer capturing life's most precious seasons - from newborns to newlyweds. But really, it all began with a mother's love for her family in a summer sunflower patch.

Hey There! I'm Marisa
