Capturing Genie

Marisa says, "I specialize in intuitive storytelling, and helping my clients feel exactly how they want to look in their photos! I have been a sole proprietor for 5 years, and have been trained  by some of "The Knot's" best local Photographers and  I’ve also shot for high end brands featured in Newsday and Hamptons Magazine. I believe all brands just starting out should have consistent branding images that help manifest their dream clientele! Your brand photos should show off who YOU are as a small business owner and not a stuffy, forced and posed “cubicle” headshot, as I like to call them! I absolutely LOVE when my clients have so much fun during our session and at the end say “Wow that was so fun, Not how I thought I would feel at all” and then when they see their photos say “I can’t believe that’s ME!” I can’t wait to learn more about you and your brand! 

Marisa says..."Your brand photos should show off who YOU are as a small business owner!"
