Marisa is such a find! We were fortunate enough to have our engagement and wedding pictures taken by This Is Life Photography. Not only does she have the ability to catch special, candid moments, but she is extremely reliable and so pleasant to be around! I didn't have to waste an ounce of stress worrying about how pictures would turn out or if our photographer would show up on time. She was always prompt (with emails and to events) and has an incredible talent.

My husband and I were always nervous about having pictures taken (hundreds of pictures!), but she makes it painless. :) We would love to recommend (and have recommended) Marisa to anyone who wants a fabulous photography experience.

Marisa was absolutely wonderful. She photographed our engagement pictures as well as our wedding pictures. She took the extra step to attended our rehearsal so that she could get herself familiar with the venue, since she had not shot there before. She always made us feel comfortable and completely relaxed. We are so unbelievably happy with all of our pictures, the hardest part is going to be picking out our favorites. We would highly recomend This Is Life Photography!!

Marisa is amazing! She did our wedding, engagement photos, and I also used her for budoir photos as a wedding gift to my husband. She is a BARGAIN for her quality of work... you will not find anyone else with her sense of style for her price. Marisa was the MOST responsive vendor I used, hands down... and we emailed back and forth a lot! She has a very comfortable personality and is easy to be around. Marisa is incredibly thorough and thoughtful with her art and I would absolutely, whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone... in fact I already have! She truly cares about documenting peoples lives for them in an authentic way. This is Life Photography was the BEST vendor I worked with in planning and executing my wedding and I am thrilled with my pictures!

From the second we met with Marisa over a year ago, I knew I had to have her as my wedding photographer. There was an instant connection and I believe that is what helped to make our experience so incredible. Marisa was (and is) our favorite vendor by far-she is so easygoing, honest, and fun to be around. She is so creative and we felt so comfortable knowing we could just let her do her thing and she would get all the best shots possible. Looking through our wedding pictures brought tears to my eyes-she captured so much emotion and love from my wedding day, she caught the big things and all the little things too.

Marisa went above and beyond for our wedding and exceeded all of our expectations. We will never be able to thank her enough for documenting our day in the way that she did. Our photos are incredible, she was great with email and phone communication, and was so comfortable to be around-especially since my husband and I have never really had photos taken before. I recommend her to everyone I know and am already thinking of my next excuse to hire her again! THANK YOU MARISA!!!

This Is Life Photography came to my wedding with relatively short notice, listened to my needs and was super friendly. I was very specific about a few things and she did everything I asked and more. We had a lot of fun with her and we didn't want her to leave when she was finished. I will recommend her to anyone I know getting married.

This Is Life Photography did a wonderful job at my wedding! She was very responsive to my requests, made sure that she took all the pictures I wanted, and did a beautiful job at both the formal pictures and the ones of the party afterwards. Her price was so much lower than places that I'd gotten quotes for in town, and that included her driving from Phoenix! I highly recommend her for any occasion.
