Kiley Marissa Photography


every story is important.

Ever since I was about 10 years old I've been a little snap happy. 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 earth, it's my favorite thing to capture it. 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.

I am always willing to work with clients to create the perfect package & cost to fit every need.

Beginning in 2017.... a documentation of your family as is. Unfolded laundry, cookies in the oven, kids in PJ's, and most of all, honest photos of your family, full of love, chaos, sometimes crying, sometimes screaming, RAW moments.

Everything Else

My services are not limited to these. I am always open to new ideas, adventures, shoots, commercial, advertising, etc. Fill out the contact form & let's get talking.

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. $150 for 20 minutes and 15 images delievered via online gallery. 

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

"Where do I begin?! From start to finish, Kiley has made my photography experience so fun, natural, and so memorable. I'm not sure how to express in words what an amazing and thrilling experience I had with Kiley taking my senior pictures. Kiley did a beautiful job capturing natural moments where my personality is shown through a photo and captured photos that contained the perfect color, shots, and quality. The part I loved was having Kiley take these pictures. She made it fun and an amazing experience, everyone must give her a chance to take their senior pictures, or wedding or engagement. You will not regret it, you will love every moment of it! It was perfect! I would never ask for anyone else to take my pictures."

“Kiley did a fantastic job working with my family. She was willing to take the pictures in the location of my choice (which happened to be my backyard) and was so good with the kids. Our pictures turned out beautifully! I will definitely use her in the future.”
