Charlotte & Grey | Golden Gardens

Sometimes the universe works in mysterious ways. These two just happened to both be living in NYC, Colorado and Seattle (and it’s certainly possible they’d bumped into one another on a subway car or passing by along a busy sidewalk), but it wasn’t until the internet’s algorithm put these two on a first date that they finally met on new year’s day in Seattle.

Charlotte thought it was cute how he smiled crookedly and Gray initially thought she was a “NYC Ice Queen” but that first date lasted 5 hours while they laughed and chatted away so we think it was definitely meant to be! The road may have felt long, but they obviously met at the perfect time in their lives since now they are planning a celebration to be together forever.

Thanks for a super fun, chill evening at the beach (albeit a tad cool:). You two are hilarious together, which will make for such a fun wedding soon! ~Erik & Marissa

Regan-Cheung Family | Golden Gardens

Capturing a frozen moment in a family’s life is one of our biggest honors, but it thrills us even more when we get to work with friends. Phoenix is actually Bryce’s buddy and we like to think one day they’ll actually play together rather than side by side! Her parents are pretty cool too and we’re lucky to call them pals. These three (actually 4 with pup Murphy!) were super fun to photograph since they wanted us to capture the real them, playing, walking (how cute is it that Phoenix holds both her parent’s hands while she walks on tiptoes?!?), collecting heart rocks and just being the adorably sweet family they are.

Brendan, JC & Phoenix thanks for letting us capture this moment in your life together. We love how sassy Phoenix is in front of the camera! May she continue to be independent, head strong and forever take a few steps on her tiptoes. ~Erik & Marissa

Molly & Taylor | Discovery Park Engagement

They’d known each other a LONG time. Rewind all the way back to 10th grade summer camp when they met over camp songs, s’mores and fireside chats (we may be indulging our imagination a bit). There was no dating or exchanging of information, but a few years later, once they’d both graduated from separate colleges (UW and WSU rivals as it was) they ran into each other. She had befriended his high-school friends during college at UW. As they were both returning home, finding jobs, and catching up with friends they were reacquainted. It was oh so lucky they were because these two fell deeply in love (we like to think it was because of camp all those years ago) and are now getting married this summer!

Molly & Taylor, you two were so, so fun and easy to work with! Let’s do it all again this September okay? 😉 ~Erik & Marissa

Sample Family | At Home Newborn

This is the way we love to meet new babies. A relaxed in-home session spent snuggling, swaddling, smooching and maybe a little screaming (from the newborns of course). These twin baby girls are more precious than they look on camera! And they’ve made their parents so happy. What’s amazing is how quickly Meghan & Chris took to parenting, especially since it’s double of everything! They’re already experts at holding both, soothing both, feeding both, and loving on both.

Meghan & Chris we hope it’s always double the fun with these two. Congrats again, they’re beautiful! ~Erik & Marissa

Because Bella is the protector-big-sis and this was just too fun to not capture on camera before the parents swooped in to sooth. Sorry baby girls!

Samantha & Igor | Ballard Engagement

They had recently moved to Ballard so it seemed the perfect fit for a walk (one of their favorite things to do together). They talked and laughed and would occasionally peer up at us when we called them for a more traditional smiley portrait. Otherwise these two were just together, as if on a date alone, our perfect engagement photo situation!

Certainly this perfect, bubbly, laughing pair were made for each other, but it took a lot of circumstances to get them in the same place and time (and the luck of the internet). Their instant attraction was based on her awe of the many languages he speaks. He was intrigued by the Bavarian dress she wore in her online photo. All it took was one or two little sparks (and a whole lot of joint love for Harry Potter) and now these love birds will be married this summer!

Samantha & Igor, we are so happy you two found each other! Your chemistry is so fun to photograph. Can’t wait for more chats, laughs, and fun at the wedding! ~Erik & Marissa
