Mark & Marisela | A Special Madison Anniversary Session

Prepare to fall in love with the most amazing couple ever – seriously, I’m half contemplating how Ben & I can be neighbors with these two. Let me introduce you to Marisela & Mark AND some exciting news they have to share.


YES! Marisela & Mark are expecting their first little peanut and wanted to take photo to celebrate this massive milestone in life! When Marisela emailed me a few months ago to schedule this portrait session, I squealed with delight!!! In fact, waiting to share this session until they had announced the big news to friends & family was SO hard!

Marisela & Mark met while serving in the Air Force and after only 2 weeks of knowing each other, they knew everything they would ever need to know — they were meant to be together. Mark asked for permission to marry Marisela and within 4 weeks of their first hello, they pledged their lives to each other. This sweet duo has been married for 9 years now and have experienced more of this world & life together than some couples experience in an entire lifetime.

During their session, we talked about how important it is to celebrate every phase of life (hello, this is my dream couple and exact philosophy on life) because life isn’t always picture perfect — it’s not about celebrating JUST the highlights but also the struggles. Marriage deserves to be celebrated through every year and this year in particular, Marisela and Mark have a BIG reason to celebrate <3

I could go on & on (and on) about Marisela and Mark but I’ll let the photos do the talking. xo


They’re having a sweet baby GIRL!!! <3
