Monika & Amir | Intimate Backyard Wedding

This year has been anything but ordinary, which means this wedding was extra special! Monika and Amir knew they wanted to get married this year and decided to make it incredibly intimate and special. The family home backyard was literally transformed into a beautiful covered venue. The family members who could attend quarantined for 2 weeks in order to gather and be part of this special day.

All the details were so thoughtful, from personalized blankets to stay warm (the tent was heated, but open so the blankets certainly helped!), gorgeous florals with a surprise ombre petal aisle for the bride, plus all the technology to include family and friends from afar.

Loved watching Monika and Amir smile and laugh throughout their wedding day. It was such a happy occasion and one they will look back on for all the small moments like dancing down the aisle, cuddling up at the beach for photos, and being showered with petals at the end of their ceremony. Congratulations you two! What a day. Thank you for letting me be a part of it! ~Marissa

Hilton Family | Juanita Beach Park

This year with the Hilton family was full of joy as we celebrated their family growing with some fun in the sun at the beach. That’s right, even in December we were blessed with a gorgeous golden hour and temperatures that didn’t require coats!

Gia was so full of life and happy to be out and about, throwing sand and running down the beach. Her parents chased her and we did a few sweet belly shots of the gorgeous mama.

Thank you Jason & Sabrina (plus Gia & Mona too). I had a blast documenting your beautiful family again this year! ~Marissa

Jackie & Neil | Olympic Sculpture Park Wedding

It was a day they’ll never forget (nor us)! It had been raining all week and was forecasted to continue. That morning the pattern changed and we saw afternoon sunshine so Neil bumped up his rental appointment, they dressed and got ready and were at the park within a few hours!

The efficiency of this couple on that day should not have surprised us. Earlier in the week we got a call from Jackie who had planned their wedding day in just 48 hours! Neil got a flight from Canada on a Sunday and she pulled off the planning of their wedding the following 2 days so that by Saturday they’d be hitched. They were so giddy and excited during their wedding photos, because it truly was the most exciting week for them! (Plus the hurricane winds and waves made for some pretty epic photos and fun moments- they were literally getting splashed during the shoot, not to mention the beach we planned to use was gone, totally flooded!)

Congratulations Jackie & Neil! Thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding weekend. What an exciting week, unforgettable photo session, and terrific love you two share! ~Marissa

Hoogerheyde Newborn | Seattle Newborn Photographer

This cute little guy has some pretty awesome footsteps to follow in. We met his parents a few years ago for their engagement and then wedding day photography and were always impressed by their happiness and kind spirits. Now they’ve added a new role to their lives- parents. We know they’re going to rock this job with loads of love and joy. He’s already such a happy and loved guy!

Congratulations Lulu & Christian! We couldn’t be happier for you. He’s simply adorable and you’ve created such a warm home for him to grow. Thank you for letting us capture his first moments! ~Marissa (& Erik too!)

Big sister kitty (love that she has a human name, Annie) had to make an appearance, although she was not so sure about it.

Showers Maternity | Discovery Park Bluff

We absolutely love following along with our forever families as they grow and add more love to their lives. Since 2014 we’ve been documenting these sweet friends (first as an engagement session) and it just keeps getting better! This year we were thrilled that Dana wanted to document her pregnancy. That baby bump is just too adorable! And it’s insane how good she looks while pregnant with baby number 3! The girls were so cute snuggling up on mama and the baby belly (and I’ll add that it was freezing cold that morning).

Dana & Josh, this was such a special shoot! The girls will be such amazing big sisters. Dana, you are literally glowing and gorgeous. So happy for your family! ~Marissa (& Erik too!)
