Kate & Keaton | Olympic Rooftop Pavilion Wedding

When two best friends decide to get married, you know it’s going to be spectacular.

From our first phone call these two knew what they wanted- to celebrate their love with their loved ones. Everything was gorgeous and thought out. From the elegant design (and super-chic outfits…check out Kate’s lace sleeves and the inside of Keaton’s custom jacket) to the laughter and overwhelming feeling of joy people felt to celebrate these two, this wedding day was everything. Oh, and the timing of the sunshine during the ceremony was on point! Plus a little rain for some cool portraits didn’t hurt.

Kate & Keaton, you two deserved this amazing day and so much more. Your love for each other is so obvious and we know this is just the beginning for you two. Congratulations and thank you so much for letting me be a part of it! ~Marissa

Sytsma Family | Gas Works Park Photographer

I met so many wonderful new families this year! I’m pumped to see the kiddos grow and the parents evolve for years to come.

Amy and I had planned this session for sunrise and got so lucky with sunshine and clear skies (this fall was a doozy for rain ya’ll, never have I ever had so many reschedules)! The sun made everyone happy and we soon shed our coats while Smith (the little guy) had us running all over the park. I was literally sweating by the end, it was an action-packed shoot with a joyfully, active toddler!

Thanks Sytsma Family! What a fun, candid-filled session highlighting exactly what it’s like to have a toddler. I appreciate your playfulness, love, and patience as we let Smith do his thing! Looking forward to catching up with you all again. ~Marissa

Erica & Aaron | Rattlesnake Lake Engagement

Her co-worker convinced her to sub on the work baseball team, suggesting there was a single guy she should meet. Erica wasn’t actually into baseball, but she came along and was a good sport about it. While hanging in the dugout she was introduced to Aaron who was thrilled to meet someone he thought also liked baseball! He invited her to sub at another game and subsequently asked her out on their first date, which was a home run!

Eventually she came clean that baseball wasn’t the love of her life or even her favorite sport, but they’d already fallen for each other in so many ways that it didn’t matter. She will sub when asked 😉

Congrats you two! Can’t wait to capture all the fun next summer for the big day! ~Erik & Marissa

Li-Lewis Family | Discovery Park

This series of images makes us think of the transition from fall to winter, when the last of the leaves dangle on the trees and the branches are mostly bare. The leaves crunch underfoot and turn from beautiful colors to mulch, returning to the ground, which also feels like a beautiful thing.

The winter solstice is today, which marks the first official day of winter and the end of our busy season! We are excited to hunker down a bit, regroup, re-educate ourselves, and honestly have a little more quality family time.

Loved getting to meet the newest member of the Li-Lewis family this year! Even in the cold (and misty rain) this family still had fun just being together, swinging, running, and trying to get each other to laugh.

Thanks for going with the flow with the weather this year Li-Lewis family! So fun to see you all on this foggy, last of fall days. ~Marissa

Lexy & Michael | Embassy Suites Seattle | King Street Ballroom Wedding

CiccarelliPhotography_6207

The big day had finally arrived! For most of our couples this year, it was a long time coming.

Our sweet couple Lexy & Michael had changed plans and made many adjustments to fit regulations. They were so overjoyed and excited to be able to celebrate with their friends and family that the day felt extra special and full of emotion. A silver lining of pandemic reschedules was they felt so grateful to finally have their wedding and cherished every single moment!

The day was so full. There were 5 bride reveals that were chock-full of emotion and lots of tears. The dress Lexy had been holding onto extra long was finally on her! For their part, the groomsmen were extra careful about eating lunch in their outfits and wore ponchos just in case. We wandered around Occidental Square for photos with umbrellas and were so lucky that the rain came as we were heading back for the ceremony. The gorgeous, open-air, clear tent was perfect for the ceremony and all the wild dancing later on. Oh dancing, we missed you so! This group brought it big and we loved every second.

The love surrounding this couple was so obvious from morning to night, truly the day they’d been waiting for.

Congratulations Lexy & Michael, what a day full of celebration for the perfect couple! Thank you so much for having us be a part of it. ~Erik & Marissa
