Our Baby Story

We totally get it now…all those new parents posting about how fast time flies with kids. It’s 100% true.

It feels like just a few months ago we found out we were pregnant and then nine months happened in the blink of an eye while we prepared for parenthood, moved into our house (started a bunch of home projects), and worked through our busiest wedding season to date!

Then our due date came and went like many first time parents experience, but we kept busy with 2 photo sessions that day and lots of walks and fall gardening chores the next. All the activity must have prompted our little guy to come see what was happening!

Labor and delivery was everything and nothing like we expected. We’ll spare you the gory parts and just say it was a truly magical ending when Erik was asked to deliver our baby and the little (actually big!) guy surprised us all by coming into the world with a full head of blond hair!

It’s been 4 wonderful and exhausting weeks since that day we first met our Bryce. Each day brings new surprises like baby smiles (the good) and blow-outs (the ugly). We are learning a lot from him already and love Bryce more than we thought possible. Thanks to everyone for the support, advice, texts, food, gifts, understanding and love that you’ve showered on us and Bryce. He is one loved little dude. ~Erik & Marissa

Bianca & Abhisek | Alki Beach Engagement

After dating four years, spending part of that time long distance and encouraging each other with dreams and careers the moment finally came for the proposal. Bianca and Abhisek traveled home to Maryland for the Christmas holiday. He asked her to accompany him on a date one night and took her to the local ferris wheel. She had butterflies in her stomach because her dream had always been to get engaged at this exact spot. Abhisek did not disappoint. While they were at the top of the wheel he popped the question, making her dream come true.

Bianca & Abhisek you were such troopers in the cold and wind. It truly shows your love for each other.  ~ Erik & Marissa

Marx Family | Carkeek Park

Year 4 with the Marx family was nothing short of a session full of love and new life with the addition of their little one, Reagan. The whole family adores her and her presence makes their family unit complete.

One of our favorite things about our job is seeing our couples turn to families or our families grow year after year, it is truly such an honor. Thank you Marx family, for having us document another year in your family’s life! ~Erik & Marissa

Stefanie & Kyle | 1927 Events Wedding

They’d had the most romantic first date, a coffee meet-up ended with an upgrade to dinner at Six Seven Restaurant in downtown Seattle. An “I love you” followed shortly after and Stefanie & Kyle were inseparable.

As the holidays hit over a year later Kyle decided it was time to make Stefanie his partner forever. Right before Christmas he sweetly popped the question, in their own home, right in front of the cackling fireplace. The romantic gesture took Stefanie by surprise, but she was not hesitant in her reply of yes!

A little gold, DIY decor, and a boatload of happiness filled their wedding day with special moments. Thank you Stefanie & Kyle, for running through the rain and letting your love outshine Seattle’s unpredictable weather. ~Erik & Marissa
