If we thought Seattle in 2013 (our first year here) was good to us, 2014 only got better!
In terms of Ciccarelli Photography we truly got down to the business of making lasting memories. As we look back at the past year we kept in mind the main reason we started this business: Give people lasting memories.
It truly takes a pinch or two to remind ourselves how lucky we are. Our job is to photograph celebrations, whether it be weddings, engagements, growing families, or growing businesses. 2014 was special to us and we wanted to say thanks by sharing our memories from this past year and the many wonderful people we met. Cheers to the memories made in 2014! ~Erik & Marissa
…we had sessions between rainy days, made our couples giggle, photo bombed as much as we could, relaxed (see Carlos the cat), met a bunch of new couples gearing up for summer weddings, and volunteered as OpLove photographers.
…we had a huge adventure to Peru, took on new food photography projects, caught a dad coming home from service seeing his son for the first time, and chased a ring bearer.
…there are only 2 words: Wedding Season. Seriously everyone decided to get married this summer, which meant we got in a lot of dancing, had a ton of laughs, and made memories we won’t forget. Oh we also caught some tiny ballerinas, a handful of engagement sessions, our first screaming flower girl, our first senior session, our favorite fair food (must try fried nutella & peanut butter sandwiches), a couple boudoir gals, a trip to the beach (actually 2!), and we squeezed in our own photo session.
That veil was spectacular….and Marissa got lost in it.
…our busy wedding season came to a close and we celebrated as wedding guests for a change! Camping on the coast, a family trip to Hawaii, Halloween outfits, and a wig party with friends rejuvenated our souls. The spectacular weather found us capturing fall engagements, new and returning families, plus one of our first Seattle couples had their anniversary session! The off season brought new business ventures, which lead to fun/awkward lighting tests of new equipment (see our mug shots & cat below). A Nashville Christmas and New Years Eve wedding finished 2014 for us with a bang.
Nashville found us at a recording studio…here’s what our band photo would look like (below). Twins for our wig party (above).
It’s always crazy looking back on the adventures we had, the new people we’ve met, and the memories we’ll cherish. It certainly makes us feel incredibly full of gratitude and humbled in a way that helps us appreciate each day, each moment, and each person in our lives. Looking forward to all that again and whatever more 2015 brings us!
Much love to you all in 2015! ~Erik & Marissa
