Marissa Boucher

My name is: Marissa Boucher.
I’m married to: Weston Boucher. He is my best friend, my business partner, and my partner in a lot of fun shenanigans. He has been such a key player in the making of The Boudoir Divas and is also a co-owner of the studio. He is a musician, photographer, techie nerd, and above all a great support system.
I live in: the sleepy surf city of Encinitas, California. I am a bike ride away from the amazing Moonlight Beach and the 101 highway, a childhood dream icon wink Marissa Boucher
My furry babies are: the Boston Terriers, Puddy and Elaine (after Seinfeld).
I’m passionate about: my Creator, Father, the King of Kings, Jesus and all that he cares about. Some of the big ones that I try to be actively involved with are Flood Church, World Vision/Compassion/Children of the Nations Child Sponsorship and also micro finance loans for female entrepreneurship for women in Malawi, Africa through Opportunity International.
I fell in love with boudoir because: I think that God made every woman uniquely beautiful and as women we have something instilled in us that yearns to have that beauty celebrated. I wanted to create an environment that did just that for EVERY woman.
I’ve been shooting boudoir since: 2001.
My favorite thing about my job is: Our team. We have the most talented and sweetest group of gals (& Weston) that we get to spend a lot of time with.
A fun fact about myself that most people don’t know: I started a T-shirt company when I was 17 and it was bought out when I was 18 by the Woolworth Corp. I have always known I wanted to own a business since I was a kiddo and I really wanted it to be part art, part business.
I am inspired by: my Pastor Matt Hammett, Walt Disney, Joyce Meyer, Gwen Stefani, and my Dad (a self made entrepreneur).
One of my greatest heroes is:  oh that’s easy! Walt Disney. He was an incredible business man AND artist. He left a legacy that people all over the world are still enjoying.
Some of my hobbies are: reading (especially historical fiction), laying in the sunshine, hanging with my friends n fam, working out with Weston (he’s a great trainer), hiking, staring at the ocean for hours, day dreaming that  I live in the Caribbean or France, writing in my journal,  watching surf videos, and snuggling with Weston and the dogs.
On my weekends, I love to: read, eat breakfast a Swami’s, go to church, and drink beer in the sun with friends
My favorite place to vacation is: the Caribbean!! Hands freaking down.
My all-time favorite book is: 1st: Bible 2nd: Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers 3rd: Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran
I want to be remembered for: being kind, giving and a great friend, loving God and being motivated by him to pursue my dreams.
