Marisa photographed my daughter's wedding in 2010 so when I got engaged 9 years later, I knew right away I'd be asking her to do my photos. Highly recommended!Sent on 06/03/2019

Gorgeous Wedding Photos!
I first booked Marisa for a paparazzi-style engagement shoot (she literally hid behind some cars with a telephoto lens to capture candids of me popping the question) and she delivered absolutely stunning photos that truly captured one of the best moments of our lives. Even at this early stage, Marisa's incredible talent for photographing the true spirit of her subjects was on display. We have three of our engagement shots hanging up and they are always conversation starters. We loved the engagement shots so much, we even incorporated elements into our invitations and day of decor!Sent on 08/06/2019
We thought we knew what we were getting after we saw the amazing engagement photos, but we really weren't prepared for the wedding shots. Marisa stunned again, capturing every important moment from our wedding day. From our pre-wedding first-look photos, to the ceremony, to the reception, Marisa managed to take photo after photo that embodied all of the energy and spirit of the day. We now count many of those wedding pictures as our favorites of friends, family, and of course ourselves. Words really do not do justice to Marisa's keen eye and talent with the camera.
Beyond her creativity, knack for capturing just the right angles and using all of her environments, and ability to create genuinely candid moments even during photoshoots, Marisa was a joy to work with throughout the process. She was as excited as we were to take pictures and it really showed. She also really helped to plan our day so that we made sure to get pictures with everyone important to us without taking us away from all the fun of our receptions. She's an absolute pro and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to all of my friends (I already have and she's done amazing work for them too!).

Marissa did an amazing job at my wedding, my friends and relatives are still talking about the photos and the wedding was in May! Marissa was very responsive and flexible in terms of where/when to meet. We discussed everything in person and she was also available via text/email for any questions. For a NYC photographer with such talent, her value is the best, and I shopped around. She has a lot of experience with wedding photographing so I let her direct most of the photos and so glad I did! She took very unique pictures in Williamsburg, where my wedding was, making amazing use of the murals, the park, the city skyline and the restaurant where we had the dinner. She also had the idea to take pictures with us at Joe's pizza and they were incredible! SO NYC! She was also gracious enough when she accepted to be our witness on the spot! I was so in love with her pictures that I recently reached out to tell her I want to have a baby just so she could photograph us again (her baby pictures on her site are gorgeous). I highly recommend her!Sent on 08/22/2018

We were very strongly recommended to work with Marisa by a close family friend. As soon as we met her, we knew that we'd found our photographer! Marisa is professional, creative, talented, sweet, and lovely. We loved all of the photos that she'd shown us of her work. She knew exactly what our vision was & on our wedding day, she brought it life. All of her ideas for us to maximize our wedding day with guests, yet capture amazing photos worked our perfectly. Some of the preliminary photos that we've received are absolutely gorgeous!Sent on 10/18/2017
As I told her that day, I felt like I was hanging out with my friend all night! We laughed so much, she shared in the excitement of our day, and we truly enjoyed working with her. We will absolutely work with her again. Plus, I have gained a new friend from this whole experience. Total win-win! Thanks so much for bringing our wedding day to life, Marisa!

Marisa was incredible and I love my photos! I'm not exaggerating when I say that friends and family cannot stop talking about them. They look like something out of a magazine.Sent on 11/10/2015
As far as pre-wedding logistics go, her prices are reasonable, she was very responsive and she answered all of our questions. On the big day she made guests feel comfortable in front of the camera. The family/wedding party photos were quick and still terrific! She also stepped in to fix my makeup, phew!
Overall she's a fun person and complete professional who takes gorgeous photos. I've already been recommending her to friends.
Marisa S Cohen Photography's reply:Awww thanks Mary, it was absolutely my pleasure! You two are easy subjects ;)

I can't say enough about Marisa! From our engagement photos to our special day, Marisa captured unique and beautiful shots that I don't see from most wedding photographers. She has a relaxed style with with a professional attitude that creates a great atmosphere to capture amazing and unique shots! She traveled to Massachusetts for both our engagement shoot in the fall by the ocean and in the summer for our wedding in the historic city of Salem, she took amazing photos in these two different settings because of her creative eye! I will treasure these photos forever. I would reccomend Marisa to anyone and everyone to do engagement, wedding photos, family photos, etc... as she is very versatile and easy person to work with! She even incorporated our dogs into our engagement photos and worked very well with my young nieces and nephew on our wedding day to capture some adorable snapshots of them!Sent on 11/16/2014

My new husband & I loved working with Marisa! She came very highly recommended by a friend who had her do their family photos & after looking through them & then her gorgeous shots of other client's weddings, I knew she'd be the perfect fit!Sent on 09/29/2014
She has a way of making you feel so comfortable & at ease & it shows through her beautiful pictures..my mom even loved them so much she told her that "she captures their emotions without any artifical structure" (my mom has a deep rooted passion for art & was greatly moved by her talent) & it could not be more true! Her eye captured the excitement, joy & love that we felt that day.
She also handled the business side with great attention to detail, which was a must in our photographer.
I highly recommend Marisa, infact I may just have her do our first family photo as well because Im now pregnant!
Two (and a half) happy clients!

OMG we love Marisa! She was so positive and supportive throughout the whole planning process. Once we got to our big day we felt she knew us and our style, so she was a welcome and seamless presence and everyone could relax. She is so warm and enthusiastic, everyone was so comfortable. That meant she caught real emotions, not stiff, stage-y, self-conscious poses. She captured images of stuff we didn't even realize was happening, like our parents beaming at us during our first dance, the little cousins playing under the table, etc. Moments we would have missed. My only regret is that we didn't do engagement photos with her!!! I guess we'll just have to do First Anniversary photos!! Andrew and I wholeheartedly recommend Marisa S. Cohen Photography.Sent on 09/29/2014

Marisa takes absolutely beautiful photos capturing candid moments along with the important posed ones just as well. We looked all over for a wedding photographer and wanted someone who took gorgeous intimate photojournalism-style moments, was down to earth, and accessible-- needless to say, Marisa fit the bill! She's got a great spirit and attitude and worked really well with our videographer crew who wanted similar shots, etc.Sent on 04/02/2014
We highly recommend Marisa and her photos speak for themselves!

My husband and I had a small, rather informal wedding in a public garden, and we wanted our photos to reflect our casual, fun style. Neither of us like posing for photos or consider ourselves very photogenic, so we were a little nervous about choosing a wedding photographer. But Marisa and I had worked together at Sephora and when I saw her portfolio online after chatting with her about photos, I knew that she would be a perfect fit for us. We loved her candid style and I knew that her professional attitude and easy flexibility would make her great on the big day.Sent on 03/25/2014
On the day of our wedding, I was incredibly impressed. Marisa was quiet and calm, very professional, and managed to be very discreet. Many of our guests commented that they didn't even realize that she was there! Our ceremony was short and afterwards we allowed our guests to play bocce on the garden lawn while Marisa took some family photos - she was great at getting everyone together and putting the groups together in a way that looked fresh and fun, without being too stiff or formal. She also got some wonderful candid shots of our closest friends - our wedding was so small that we each only had one attendant, so it was great to have photos of the people closest to us in addition to our families and small wedding party.
We got some of Marisa's favorite photos very quickly, and had the whole set within a few months, and I absolutely love them. We have several of the photos framed in our home, and used most of them to create our own wedding album, and we get so many compliments. I've recommended Marisa highly and several of my friends have used her for their weddings and been thrilled with the photos.
Marisa is very professional, takes beautiful images, and is a dream to work with - friendly, flexible, and full of great ideas. We had a blast working with her and I would recommend her to anyone - I'm even planning to get some photos done for our five year anniversary!

Marisa Cohen Photography created beautiful photos that captured the joy of my wedding day! Marisa is really talented with finding the right light, location, and moment to capture the photo spontaneously! We ended up in a friendly stranger's backyard that had the perfect tree and distressed shed. Then, we took advantage of the sun going down at the perfect angle and backdrop for our beach photos. Marisa is a lot of fun and very flexible with what you envision as a bride. She also offers makeup services, and my entire bridal party felt glamorous and ready to be photographed! Thank you, Marisa of Marisa Cohen Photography for the giving my family and I the ability to relive this momentous day!Sent on 03/01/2015

Marisa photographed the details of my son's bar mitzvah beautifully. We have great pictures of him and of the event. She captured the spirit and emotions of the day.She was extremely unobtrusive -- we never knew she was there.Sent on 02/23/2015
