Marissa is nestled between Battle Creek and Kalamazoo. She has a casual approach to senior sessions and a (not so secret) love for photographing live theatre.
She's a big-time sucker for an intimate wedding and she loves chasing kids around. Families are her favorite as she captures the sweet little details of all their interactions. Her style is relaxed and simple...her style is REAL LIFE.
Session includes up to 60 minutes of photography and an online gallery of at least 12 images. You can purchase the digital download/printing rights for the entire collection for $35. Professional prints (prices vary by size) can be purchased separately, and are shipped directly to your home sweet home.

While all of Salt and Light's photographers love dabbling in most kinds of photography, each of us has certain shoots we love most. Ashley loves couples. There's something special about a photographer who can create an environment where a couple feels comfortable enough to be themselves. Those intimate, candid shots are absolute treasures.
Ashley also shoots seniors and children, and loves adventurous outdoor sessions.
