Hello + Welcome!
My name is Marisa, owner of Leibfarth Photography
I've loved taking pictures as long as I can remember. I hate to imagine the amount of money my mother spent developing roll after roll of film.
When I was 13 I was trusted with capturing my Grandma & Grandpa's 50th anniversary party and I fell in love with photography even more. It is the best feeling to capture people's natural interactions and knowing they can keep a piece of that moment forever.
My ultimate goal is always to capture raw, candid, joyful moments. This is why weddings is where I chose to focus my energy. There is nothing quite like the love, tears, laughter, and joy captured on a wedding day. I try to incorporate this same style in my family portraits as well. While a nice posed family picture is always included I also make sure to capture families in fun, playful, and unscripted moments.
The best feeling of all is leaving a session and having clients tell me "Wow, that was so much fun!" I hope that everyone who spends time in front of my camera walks away feeling this happy!
Although photography was probably my first love it is no longer my only. I am the very proud mama of a handsome 4 year old who is so perfect in every way. I am incredibly blessed to be his mom and photography has allowed me to stay at home with him the majority of his life so far.
Some other fun facts about me:
I love to dance and will definitely be doing so at your wedding reception.
I love to read, mostly crime and thriller novels.
I have lived in 3 different countries.
Pizza, chocolate, and netflix are three of my favorite things.
I can't touch cotton balls, fleece, or anything with that yucky texture.
My mama is my best friend and I cherish our Sunday Night Dinner tradition.
