Kiley Marissa Photography


every story is important.

Ever since I was little I've loved taking photos. Over the years, I've rarely looked back on photos regretting how many I took. There are so many precious moments in your life, and each and every one is worth remembering.  The art of photography is not just an art, it's a story being told - visually. It's the simple things I like to live for. Honestly, my favorite thing is being behind the scenes and capturing smiles that happen naturally. There is so much joy in this life, it's my favorite thing to capture. Your story is important, no matter what it is. Every story is important.

Whether I'm photographing something as simple as a 1st birthday party or something as huge & exciting as your wedding, I promise to be 100% there. I promise to be along side you, creating memories and capturing your family, your friends, and YOU as you are. I promise to capture your true self in a way that will give you the ability to relive and relive the best days of your life. Photography is not only a piece of art, it's a reflection of real life. Each and every picture tells a story of something, and that's what I want you to see in your images. 



services & investment



I believe photography truly is an investment. Not only are you getting fun decorations for your house or a new profile picture, but many lifetime memories captured. It's the capturing of your story in a certain time of your life that you can re-live forever, and that is something worth investing in.

All, everything that I understand, I only understand because I love.

love stories

My absolute favorite. Although I specialize in weddings, my biggest goal is storytelling. Stories can be told in so many ways. The first day of the rest of your life? Absolutely. Been together for too many years to count? I want to capture that too. Want me to come spend a day in your house capturing the two of you in a comfortable and growing space... 100% down for that, too. 

Wedding packages include an engagement session, a second shooter, meetings to go over all wedding details, professional posing, print release, online gallery, and a flash drive of all your images. Custom packages are available to fit your every need.

high school grads

One of the most exciting times of your life. Grads are my favorite because this is such a time of growing. I want to capture you for you, no fake smiles, no pretending. I absolutely promise a fun and out of the norm photoshoot. Let's find some locations, outfits, and poses that scream "you!" I know you're not interested in anything else (and quite frankly - neither am I.) ....and I promise to make these look better than mom and dads grads. ;)


Mini sessions are offered 2-3 times a year, both in Minneapolis and Duluth, Minnesota. $200 for 15 minutes and 10 images delievered via online gallery. Sign up for my newsletter to be the first to hear mini session dates. 





"Kiley simply captured the soul of our wedding day. Her photos are so fresh and genuine, and because of that, they are so precious to us. We feel like the best, authentic versions of ourselves, and everyone in attendance was captured in her photos –– not some strange, unfamiliar cookie-cutter, camera-ready version. My husband and I were so impressed with her work and decided '...yup, that is the best we are ever going to look.'"

-Karley schoenberg | 2016 bride

"Kiley was so great to work with during both our engagement and wedding photos. Not only is her work top-notch but she has a personality that makes her feel more like a friend rather than someone you have hired! You spend so much time with a photographer and videographer during your wedding day that it is important to find someone that can make you feel comfortable and Kiley makes you feel comfortable and then some. The quality of the photos speak for themselves but it is important for someone else, like myself, to speak for who she is as a person!"

-travis walls | 2017 groom

"Kiley was so flexible and accommodating throughout our entire experience from the initial contact to the engagement session all the way to the wedding itself. She always made us feel comfortable and relaxed- she is an absolute JOY to be around!"

-Alyssa moon | 2017 bride

"Kiley is very professional and fun in her photography. She has done our family pictures and our daughters graduation pictures. She makes the sessions fun and is very affordable. Thanks, Kiley!!"

-Pam V | Family & Senior Portraits

Kiley was very helpful and encouraging while we were deciding where to take the photos. She was flexible and understanding when there was a delay, because let's be honest, weddings never go as planned. She was respectful and very good at posing large family photos. All smiles, all excitement. It helped me focus on what I needed to that morning. I'd recommend her to anyone.

-Joelle reckinger | 2017 bride

"Very friendly, professional and fun to work with. Thank you for such a great experience!!"
