We love Marissa!
From our first meeting with Marissa, we knew we wanted her as our photographer for our big day. We spoke with her for so long, it was as if we had already known each other. Throughout the whole planning process, Marissa continually communicated with me to make me feel at ease. She would answer my emails and meet with me in person to ensure things went smoothly/we got the right shots for the day. I did not have to give Marissa any "specifics," and I advise you not to either...she is BEYOND creative and talented and knows all the right angles, where to find the light, and how to get you shots you would have never even thought of. Not only can Marissa and her team capture amazing pictures, but they make it fun and make you laugh while doing it. We were amazed with our engagement pictures and now that some of our wedding pictures have came out we are simply blown away. Marissa and staff, thank you for being your creative, amazing selves! We are so happy you guys were with us on the best day of our lives!Sent on 08/19/2019

Exceeded every high expectation
When I was early in wedding planning, booking a photographer was one of my first steps. Heyn Photography came highly recommended by my venue, Clarks Landing, and when I went on the website, it became clear why. When I sent in my initial request, Marissa seemingly immediately sent back a personal video. Who does that? I knew I had reached out to the right person.Sent on 07/02/2019
Once we had that first meeting with Marissa, I knew that we were in good hands for our wedding. Her attention to detail is unmatched. All of the albums that she had were gorgeous, with incredible pictures in high quality albums.
When we had our engagement shoot, we again got confirmation that we made the right choice. Like many couples, our engagement shoot was the first time we were having formal portraits taken of us, and it is easy for that to be an awkward situation. Marissa and her team made us feel so comfortable and that we were just with friends, and that really showed in the beautiful pictures.
Flash forward to the weeks leading up to the wedding. I consider myself to be a very detail oriented person, and that's why I really appreciated our final meeting that spanned a few hours, but allowed us to go through, in detail, different schedule options, and pick the one that worked best for the day. Even though I was two weeks out from my wedding, I felt so much calmer knowing that Marissa thought through all of the details and timelines.
Our wedding day was everything that I could have asked for and more. Marissa and her team worked tirelessly through the day to get amazing pictures. They had to have been tired, given how hard they were working, but you would never know it. Towards the end of the night, Marissa even pulled me over and was able to show us a good number of pictures from the day on a screen. It helped my new husband and I really soak in the moment and reflect on what we had done that day.
The next week when we were on our honeymoon, Marissa uploaded 100 pictures to Facebook. I can’t stress enough how much this meant to us, and how huge this is to future brides. To be able to be on your honeymoon and have these images to cherish and reflect with your new spouse is just incredible and not something that you will get with most photographers.
Your wedding photographer is the person that you will probably spend the most time with on your wedding day (outside of your new spouse). It’s really important to pick someone that you get along with and Marissa is definitely the person that you want to spend time with and can trust to take amazing pictures. I cannot recommend Heyn Photography enough to capture lifelong memories for you and your family.
