I feel so grateful that I found Marissa and honestly can't recommend her enough. I wanted to find a photographer for a branding session. This is such a personal endeavor for me and I am quite introverted so was nervous about what to expect. Right from the beginning, Marissa was communicative, kind, relatable, and professional. A combination that is difficult to find. Marissa was very open minded through the decision making process of shoot location (s). She communicated several times prior to our session already making me feel at ease. She arrived early to the shoot and I immediately felt like I was hanging with an old friend. My nerves dwindled and I felt comfortable from beginning to end. She gave great direction throughout the shoot. The teamwork and collaboration made me really feel like I was part of every decision along the way. I had a feeling that the photos would be great but when I received them I was completely blown away. They are absolutely stunning and reflect me, my personality, and brand 100%. This is exactly what I was looking for - someone that I felt comfortable with and photos that represent me! From the bottom of my heart, thank you Marissa. You are a rockstar!

Let me talk about this excellent photography experience I had with Light Rae Exposures. I knew I was going to be proposing in Steamboat Springs and found the perfect restaurant. I Looked at photographers on here and held off on getting one before I got the parents blessing. Once I got the blessing and was ready to go with the plan I contacted Light Rae Exposures. She came up from Denver early and scouted the area out for me plus she also found secondary photo shoot locations which came out as amazing photographs. She went out of her way working and concealed herself quite well until the proposal happened. We had a great time spending time with her and it was easy to pose with her as she was extremely friendly and had great results. I highly recommend her. If my wedding was in Colorado I would hundred percent use her again. Thank you Marissa!

My photo session happened to be right after fall season was over. I actually wanted the fall/autumn look for our engagement pictures. So since the season was over we had hard time finding the perfect view. Marisa really understood what i was look for & how i wanted the pictures to turn out. She found a perfect spot for the photoshoot & the pictures turned out marvelous! I personally had a wonderful time working with Marisa! I think She’s a very cheerful and comfortable person to work with. We had a great time! Thank you light Rae exposures!
