Welcome and thanks for stopping by!

I am Marissa Joy Daly of Marissa Joy Photography. I was raised in North Carolina, went to college in Boston, spent 2 years in DC, and now have lived in Los Angeles for the last 9 years. I incorporate art and documentary moments into all my work. From stunning destinations weddings in Switzerland and Madrid, to an intimate backyard wedding in Maryland or a glam Hollywood event, I adore being able to make each occasion as special as the next.

My goal is to put you at ease, give you lasting memories and timeless art that will span generations, and make stellar shots that will make anybody who views them to stop and oooo and ahhhhh. 

To maintain quality work and excellent client relationships, I only book up up to 10 weddings a year (both local and international) with packages starting at $8000. 

Fun Facts!

I don't like fruit...I know, it's weird.

My husband and I have a 4 year old boy, Julian who we can't get enough of. Hearing those racing, little footsteps from another room is the best sound in the world. We also have our baby girl, Savannah (18mo), whose eyes light up our world! She is a fireball and we adore her.

Zoe is our rescue German Shepherd mix. I am very passionate about animal welfare and I spend a dedicated amount of time photographing shelter animals and helping place them in forever homes. 

In college, I was featured in National Geographic for a photojournalism piece focusing on Americans in the rural Blue Ridge Mountains

I'm a sucker for Vanilla Lattes and Champagne

I studied abroad in Florence, Italy while attending Boston College

About our team



Hi! I'm Kate and I am the Digital Marketing and Social Media Manager at Marissa Joy Photography. I have a B.A. in Business & Spanish from Muhlenberg College. My marketing experience extends from EdTech, to insurance, to startups. Not only do I love being apart of the process of story telling through photography, I also love being able to use my work to have these stories reach more people across the globe. When I am not creating email campaigns, social posts, and blogging I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kids (and of course, Carl, our beloved cat).
