Aloha and welcome to Studio Elizay! I’m Marissa, a California born and raised gal currently living in Hawaii with my best friend and business partner. I fell in love with wedding photography shortly after our wedding in 2006 and I started shooting portraits and weddings in 2009. Documenting life and love on these islands and across the Pacific Ocean is an absolute honor.

Photography is the only means that allows me to pour out the fullness of my heart and express myself when words are too loud. When a couple invites me into their world and trusts me to capture their love I shoot with all I have because I don’t know how to do it any other way.

Photography allows me to express my passion of embracing life and feeling love with my whole heart. It would be a true joy to document one of the most important days in your life, I’m humbled to be considered and look forward to connecting with you soon!

Although documenting is one of my first loves I am obsessed with green smoothies, running and thriving on a plant-based lifestyle. I share bits and pieces of our Hawaii life, plant-based goodness and fitness adventures on my lifestyle blog.

Besides photographing beautiful weddings I also love photographing small, intimate and joy-filled celebrations of love in the form of family, couple or anniversary portrait sessions.
