I'm in love with celebrating your joy, creating unique experiences, and enjoying the beauty of the Rockies. I am a wedding and elopement photographer, based in Bozeman, Montana. Nothing inspires me more than telling your story. My work is all about connection and joy! I love to photograph couples who are madly in love and want gorgeous photos to tell their story. As a photographer and storyteller, it is an absolute joy to capture the most amazing moments for you to relive. Every wedding is an adventure, and I want to photograph yours.

"Merissa’s work is absolutely stunning, but you can see that for yourself. What you can’t tell from a quick Google search is the kind of person Merissa is. Yes, she was professional, prompt, prepared, and all the other things you would hope from your wedding photographer. But she is also incredibly warm. And welcoming. And truly one-of-a-kind. My husband and I eloped in Montana with neither of us having been there before. All we knew was we wanted to elope in an incredible location – just us – and we wanted beautiful photos. We left everything else to Merissa. She helped us find a location for the ceremony and pictures, recommended our officiant, and basically took all the stress off my shoulders! She is incredibly easy to work with and had an infectious optimism that is exactly the kind of energy you want with you on your wedding day. We love our pictures so much we are already strategizing how we can fly cross-country and have another session with her!"
