Danielle & Jordan | Woodland Park Rose Garden

The first time they met there were sparks. He knew right away this was a person worth waiting for, so he did, since she was already with someone that first meet-up. Skip to a few months later, when they bump into each other again, and he asks her out on their first date. Unfortunately that date didn’t go so great and he thought he’d totally blown it.

It wasn’t until 6 months later when she sent him a text on New Year’s that he was able to prove himself with a second date and heartfelt apologies for the first. Drinks at the space needle and a home cooked meal, plus great conversation sealed the deal and they’ve been partners and best friends since!

Their adventures around the globe are drool worthy if you like to travel (like us!) and we truly believe that makes them so ready to be married and to spend the rest of their lives together. Can’t wait for the big day Danielle & Jordan, you two are so good together! ~Erik & Marissa

Bergstrom Family | Gasworks Park

Love that we always get to work with friends of friends! This sweet family of 3 ended up spending the summer in Seattle since, you know, the pandemic and everything is allowing people to work remotely for the time being. We’re so glad they were up here and we were able to capture some fun, classic Seattle, family pictures for them!

Thanks Monica & Branden, you all made this toddler session super fun, full of motion and filled with love. Come back soon! ~Marissa

Shea & Austin | Golden Gardens Engagement

He had planned a camping trip with a big hike into the Olympic National Forest. They’d been living here in Seattle for a few months and he thought it would be perfect. Since he’d never been to this particular spot before there wasn’t really a location planned, but he knew the timing just had to be right.

They were unpacking all their gear and settling in for the night by the campfire when Austin pulled out the ring he’d been hiding and proposed under the trees and stars. Of course Shea said yes! And due to no cell service they were able to just be in the moment together, enjoying their engagement for a few days before coming back to Seattle to break the news.

Congrats Shea & Austin! Loved that your engagement session truly showed your love of the outdoors and your new home in the PNW. ~Marissa & Erik

Schnugg Family Year 3 | Seattle Newborn Photographer

Year 3 with this family brings a brand new baby girl! Always love documenting our families as they grow another tiny human. Colette is the sweetest and slept our entire session, letting everyone cuddle her. We were even able to document 3 generations of women while grandma was visiting. Loved capturing this family with some quiet moments between action shots as their toddler showed us her jumping and bubble blowing tricks.

Congratulations Filiz & Matt! She is just sweet as can be and Emilia is so much fun. You all make such a beautiful family. ~Marissa

Avé & Skylar | Discovery Park Elopement

CiccarelliPhotography_4268

If we’ve learned anything from 2020 it’s that we have a lot to learn. One thing we’re working on is finding the silver lining (and trying to explain that saying to our oldest). Our couples have all been finding ways to see that lining and be flexible, from changing wedding dates and venues to having two dates or staying local. We’re constantly impressed by those who continue to stay positive and see the good in these confusing times.

One such couple is near and dear to our hearts, Marissa’s brother and his fiancé Avé. They experienced all the ups and downs of an ever-changing world as they tried again and again to plan a wedding that made sense for them and their families near and far. There were definitely tears and lots of talks about what might or might not happen. In the end, they decided on an elopement for now and it couldn’t have turned out more perfect!

There were 6 of us who woke up before the sun, met at Discovery Park, and hiked down to the beach with the few items we needed to capture the ceremony and celebrate afterwards (you better believe champagne and croissants made it in the bag). We timed it for low tide (and some pretty lighting of course) and were happily surprised by a huge sand spit and practically no one around. The sun was shining, an eagle flew back and forth overhead, a seal came to watch, and two of the most special people to us made a beautiful promise to one another, while family watched from their homes via Skype.

Avé tied in her Hawaiian upbringing with traditional florals and we kept feeling like she couldn’t have gotten much closer to having that dream Hawaiian beach wedding than this! Thus, that silver lining shows itself again on this special morning.

Avé and Skylar, we obviously couldn’t be happier for you two. We know you went through a lot to get to this point, but wow, what a gorgeous memory we will have forever, watching you two marry this way. xoxo ~Erik & Marissa

Check out the contraption Skylar came up with to videotape the whole thing and have 3 phones full of people watching live!

Avé’s mother was still able to do her special readings live via Skype!
