You know how pumped up you feel after your favorite team wins? Or after a really rad concert? The joy, the laughter, the fun, the moments you’ll remember for a long, long time? That’s exactly how I want your elopement day to feel too. This special and sacred day is more than a production.

I want these memories to be the springboard for all your future adventures together. The time you guys are laughing so hard you almost cry. The one where you reach the mountain top together and read your vows. And the time you do something so thrilling it leaves you so, so euphoric. These are memories that will last a lifetime. It’s about the romance, the grandeur, about you two having the most fun day that you want to do over and over again, but most importantly just you two being together.

Anyone can take your photos. But not everyone can help you have the best day of your lives that literally leaves you on cloud nine in the process! The pump, the joy, the tears, the little moments, the details, the first day of happily ever after – they’re the story of you guys! You’re marrying the love of your life, and I want your photos to reflect that joy forever.

Hey, I’m Clarissa! I’m a taco loving, Star Wars nerd, part time ballerina, and adventurous elopement photographer traveling the world to document the most epic love stories! I’m truly blessed to have such a rad job and meet amazing folks like you!

My role as your photographer goes way beyond just getting you the epic photos you’re dreaming of (though there will be plenty of that for sure!). I’m here to walk you through every step of the way from now until your epic wedding day. It would be a true honor to chat about all your elopement hopes and dreams so check out my website for more info, details, and inspiration 🙂

If all this is speaking to you, let’s chat!

I honestly don't know where to start! From the very beginning, Clarissa provided me more than just a photographer service. She provided guidance, consultation, and her honest opinion towards making an idea into reality. That idea? Proposing to my girlfriend (now fiance!) at one of her bucket list locations! Clarissa went above and beyond to ensure we chose the right location, tour guide, and even time of the day for the best lighting. When she first heard I wanted Antelope Canyon, she was quick to inform me of their mask mandate which would hurt the raw emotions being captured in the photo, then immediately offered an alternative location - Peekabo Slot Canyon in Kanab, UT. IT WAS THE PERFECT SOLUTION! Clarissa was by my side throughout the entire time leading up to the big day, which mind you, was a 3-4 month process of planning and her dealing with my constant questions/worries. Immediately after the big proposal, she took the extra step in making sure we had additional photos to choose from AND even joined in on the fun with some awesome sand dune fun! No more than 24 hours after the event, Clarissa shared half a dozen sneak peek photos to share with our friends and family. As a hobbyist photographer, choosing a photographer was always hard to come by since I could never find somebody to replicate what I would want. Clarissa hit the nail on the head from the very beginning. Do yourselves a favor - bask in the moment and let Clarissa capture it.


Working with Clarissa is a breeze! She takes a careful and thoughtful approach on everything from A to Z. From understanding location logistics to providing outfit inspirations, she guided us seamlessly through the entire process. Initially, we teamed up with her for our engagement photos and when the wedding rolled around, she was the only person we would consider. Her friendly demeanor and passion for the work she does, makes the activity of shooting photos incredibly fun and easy-going! We trusted her with running the show, and would do the same over and over. She provided great insight, direction and meticulous execution for some of the biggest events in our life, capturing perfectly the love we have for one another. Thank you again, Clarissa! Your work is amazing and we'll cherish it forever.


Went over and beyond what I could have asked or hoped for. She thought of things I never would have known to consider because she has a strong background. You'll never catch her standing still because she is trying to capture each moment perfectly. So easy to work with. You won't be disappointed with her work!
