I have had the good fortune to work with Rissa Photography several times in the last year and a half. I will continue to call on Carissa for all of my imagery needs....The images are high quality, thoughtful and unique to the project, delivered timely and her creativity is unparalleled. One of my favorite things about working with Carissa is how easily she elevates the concept, how she is able create safe space in any setting while really capturing the essence of the project. Her awareness of subject, setting and outcome is incredible. The experiences offered by Rissa Photography are always “high vibe”! My expectations are always surpassed when we work together. And my comfort and confidence in front of the camera increases!

I love working with Carissa everytime. She is such a source of joy, creativity, and comfort which is especially important for someone like me who can feel very timid in front of the camera:)

Carissa is a VERY talented photographer and ARTIST. She was timely, focused, prepared, and open. I enjoyed how she sent me an amazing mood/inspo board beforehand and had a plan for shoot day. Furthermore, she brings unique styles and vibes to her photos and art that I have yet to experience. MOST FUN SHOOT EVER!

I felt my shoot was personalized and I was valued! My pictures came out great and just in time for my Birthday would highly recommend!



Carissa is one of the most talented and creative photographers I've come across. She managed to capture exactly the feeling I was looking for which in my case was dreamy and feminine portraits and nature shots for my website. She is really easy going and a dream to work with. She is very creative, flexible and makes you feel really comfortable.

Carissa has captured the most beautiful photos of my daughter, family, and my first photo shoot as I launched my business. Her creativity inspires me and I can always trust that she will make my vision truly come to life ❤️ I’ve worked with a lot of photographers and I would definitely say, she has been my favorite to work with!!

Carissa’s talents are needed and prime for the current social climate. The “future is female”, we’ve all heard it, and Carissa helps pull the magical, graceful and distinguished animal out of women so that they can be present, strong, and connected to their most authentic selves. She is amazing at bringIng out your goddess within because she embraces her own goddess; she is a wild woman at heart and in practice. She facilitates a safe space for exploration, honesty and fulfillment. She took my pictures and I couldn’t be happier. I recommend her to others and may go back for another shoot!



 I’m so obsessed with the photos that @wildwomxnmagicke took of me 😍 her work is so incredible! The entire experience was so beautiful and intentional. I highly recommend her Embody Your Goddess photoshoot package for anyone wanting to capture their raw feminine essence.
