Marisa Guzmán-Aloia is a Washington, DC based portrait and lifestyle photographer. A graduate of the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Marisa's work is about capturing the stories in front of her lens. Her use of light and composition, in addition to her emotive direction, creates relaxed and natural photographs. Marisa enjoys collaborating with clients to bring their vision to life. 

Marisa has a wanderlust. Her life as a photographer has led her on breathtaking adventures. Documenting new places, cultures and experiences feed her soul. But, it doesn't matter where in the world Marisa is, she will always be a California girl at heart. 

The world is a wonderfully big and diverse place. Marisa is aiming to photograph as much of it as she can. 

Marisa's clients include Compass Real Estate Brokerage, Framebridge, Torrance Memorial Medical Center, Southbay Magazine, and Terranea Resort Magazine. Marisa's work has been featured in The Washingtonian and BuzzFeed.

Marisa is supported by Wonderful Machine.
