Daniela & Fernando | Alderbrook Resort Wedding

As soon as her veil was pinned she remembered her halfway written vows so she took a quiet moment to herself in the bustling room where her bridesmaids were popping champagne and her family was getting beautifully made up. She thought of the words she’d be saying to Fernando in just a few short hours and wrote them down, shaking a little, but smiling. Just a short walk away Fernando was looking over his own vows, making sure the words were true to his heart, while his groomsmen got on their bowties and poured some spirits for a cheers. This was the day they’d been waiting for. The day that she, Daniela, had planned for hours and days and months with Fernando, to bring all the special people in their lives from all over the world to celebrate their love.

And celebrate they did. Their personal vows brought tears of joy to both of their eyes and their loved ones cheered as they made their way up the aisle as husband and wife. They laughed and danced as their family dressed them up in masks and handed them glow sticks for their own carnival dance.

Towards the end of the night we stole them away for a quiet moment at sunset on the dock for a slow dance, a stroll and a moment of reflection to soak in the truly amazing day.

Daniela & Fernando, thank you for letting us into your lives to document this amazing day! Congratulations! ~Erik & Marissa

Nakamura Family | Seattle Newborn Photographer

In home newborn sessions are our favorite! Not only was this family of four so welcoming, kind, and totally in love with their new little guy, but they practically had a studio as their bedroom. Baby Kai was so happy to be snuggled and even liked kisses from his big brother.

Congratulations Nakamura family! Welcome to the world Kai, we are so glad you’re here. ~Marissa & Erik

Rica & Joe | University of Washington Engagement

They had probably walked by each other many times without even realizing it. You see, they worked in the same hospital, on the same floor, even in the same wing! He was a dental resident at UW’s hospital and she was a 4th year dental student. Of course it took a dating app to bring these two together for their first date (and they were both each other’s one and only online date)! They cozied up downstairs at Capitol Cider and listened to jazz while chatting the night away. It was to be their first of many dates to come.

Rica & Joe we are so happy to have met you (truly two kinder people couldn’t have found each other). We loved walking around UW with you for your engagement session and cannot wait for the wedding in just a few short weeks! ~Erik & Marissa

Amanda & Amy | West Seattle Proposal

She contacted us months ago to plan her proposal. She wanted it to be perfect and planned everything, including scouting the location and sending us photos of several possible spots they may sit to watch the ocean before proposing.

Of course the best plans sometimes get turned upside down! They ended up a little further down the beach (and I ran to the new location so as not to miss it), but had the whole view to themselves. It had been a tough week for Amy so instead of doing a fancy dinner beforehand they ended up at a casual spot for a bite to eat. As they strolled along the beach Amy thought Amanda was acting funny. They sat down and wrapped up in blankets against the wind. As they sat there bundled up together Amanda pulled out a ring box, got down on one knee (on her sweater, she’s incredibly sensible), and poured her heart out to Amy. Of course she said, “yes!” and we spent the rest of sunset taking photos on their favorite spot on the waterfront, gushing about how Amanda had planned the evening, how Amy had almost guessed it, and how the two of them were now engaged!

Amanda & Amy, thank you for the huge honor of capturing such an intimate and special moment in your lives together.

Rolfe Family | Seattle Newborn Photographer

This little sweetheart has already given her parents 2 whole months of love. They said she’s been such a good baby, even through the remodel of their home! Like any house project that was supposed to be done, it’s been going on longer than expected so we pushed back our newborn session and made it a two month session (which was awesome because she was smiling and holding her head up already). When they brought Olivia home from the hospital there were still workers in the house and she just rolled with it. They think hammering and sawing ended up being good white noise for her naps!

Congrats Katie and Ian, she is such a perfect addition to your family!
