About Me

Marissa Mette Photography is a part of Enchanted Photo Tales. This part of the business focuses on Weddings, Family and Maternity photos. A little about my history, I moved to the Effingham area in 2006 and I absolutely love it here! The small town vibe here is so comforting to me. 

I was born and raised in Orange County, California. I grew up a city girl, spent my summers on the beach, hanging out with friends and living in traffic, haha! To summarize how I ended up here, I needed a change, met my husband and the rest is history. I have been married to my husband Brian since 2009 and we have two young boys, born in 2014 and 2018. I am a stay at home mom when I am not working and love it! It is the hardest job I have ever done, but the rewards far outweigh anything that comes my way. 

​I have been taking photography classes since 1995, and have been training ever since then. My photos have been featured in Shutter Magazine in September, November and December of 2018. I have also won First Place in the Professional B&W Competition at the Mattoon Arts Council in August of 2018 and was a featured photographer on the blog for basicinvite.com in May of 2018. 

I continuously learn so that I can always be the best I can by being a member of PPA, attending Imaging USA and Shutterfest conferences to learn from the best. Please feel free to chat with me any time and I look forward to working with you!!!

​Love,​​​​​​​ Marissa
