Ave & Skylar | Hawaii Engagement

This one is especially significant to us…Marissa’s brother got engaged!!!

Not only did he get engaged, but we were there for it too! Plus, it was in Hawaii, how much more romantic can you get? This love story started on an airplane, when two strangers sat next to each other, picked a movie to watch side by side, talked about everything and got off the plane knowing something special had just happened.

To stick with the theme of their first encounter we went along to the airport in Hawaii where Avé was just about to land a few days after us. Skylar had the ring in his pocket secretly. She got off the airplane to a beautiful sunny day and as they embraced she said she could feel his heart beating really fast. They walked, hand in hand, to baggage claim, but before she could even begin looking for her luggage he had dropped to one knee as her hands flew to her face in total surprise. They celebrated the rest of their trip as a newly engaged couple!

We had a beautiful sunny morning before departing the island to get some shots of these two and we’re so glad we did! Congrats Avé and Skylar! We are so happy for you two! ~Erik & Marissa

Helton Family | Bump to Baby | Seattle Maternity & Newborn Photographer

We love, love, love seeing families before and after baby! It’s so magical watching the transformation from bump to baby. These excited parents went from a couple to a family and we were able to document the bump just before Nora came into the world. Now she is here and adorable (what a hair baby!) and her parents are perfectly smitten and experts at loving and calming her already.

Congratulations Meghan & Jeremy! She is beautiful. ~Marissa

*Two of our favorite bump photos, but check out more from their maternity session HERE.

Showers Family | Magnuson Beach

Way back in 2014 we first documented this lovely couple for their engagement session (twice! But that’s a whole other story involving crutches, a dog, and flag football;) and then were lucky enough to capture their marriage on the waterfront at the Seattle Yacht Club.

Now they have the two cutest little girls who were all smiles and giggles during their family session this fall (and Elle’s 6 month shoot!). Even though all four of them were under the weather at different stages on this particular day, Dana & Josh were able to pull off some fantastic shots, capturing just how fun they are with the girls- dancing, playing, throwing them and showering them with love. Scroll to the end and you’ll see these two still have the magic too! 😉

Dana & Josh, Thanks for letting us document this milestone for Elle and your whole beautiful family! ~Marissa & Erik

Julie & Matt, thank you. Your home is full of love, kindness, and toddler energy- the best combo! ~Marissa & Erik

Jaclyn & JD | Olympic Sculpture Park Engagement

He had planned the entire trip for their engagement. They’d head up the elevator of the space needle, see the new renovations, and he’d pop the question. The only problem was getting her to agree to the trip!

When they arrived, there were long lines so naturally Jaclyn said they should just come back another time, no rush to go up there today. He was acting so strange and was oddly persistent about waiting in line. She complained, but finally gave in since it didn’t seem like he’d let up on the plan. She didn’t realize he’d wanted to see the new space needle so badly! All this time the ring was in his possession and he was freaking out that they wouldn’t end up going to the top like he’d wanted. Luckily, they finally made it to the front of the line, up the elevator and were walking around at the top when he dropped to one knee. She obviously said yes! And the whole lead up to their day made total sense.

Thanks for being so fun to plan with and capture Jaclyn & JD! Congrats again, you two make a lovely pair! ~Marissa & Erik
