Hall Family | Marina Park

Love this family to pieces. We first met Hillary & John for their engagement pictures and knew right away we’d be friends. Their wedding was simply fantastic (although we wished we were guests in the end, it was just that much fun!) and they became pregnant shortly after us! We loved meeting newborn Hadley and documenting her when she first arrived and now seeing her moving about, laughing at her parents, and them loving every moment with her is the best.

This is exactly why we love what we do. To watch our couples grow more in love with each other over the years and maybe even start their own families too. Congrats Hillary & John! Hadley is such a happy girl, and she is so lucky to have you as parents. ~Erik & Marissa

Hadley was such a good baby! So smiley and happy, even in the wind and not super warm temperatures.

See you soon Hadley…bye!

PS-Bryce showed up halfway through our photo session to act as baby whisperer, clown, attention getter, and maybe future boyfriend? It worked until we sat them next to each other. Love at first sight or staring contest? In any case they’ll be buddies one day, whether they like it or not!:)

Julie & Matt | Parsons Garden Wedding

ciccarelli-photography-westin-bellevue_0042

Wedding days are filled with stories, special moments that happen which make your day memorable. Of course we always expect to encounter many of these, but on Julie & Matt’s day it seemed around every bend something spectacular was waiting to happen.

Maybe it was because this was our last wedding of the year, or because Julie & Matt had an intimate day with close family and friends, or maybe it’s because these two are just such spectacular individuals themselves. Whatever the cause, this wedding day was full of surprises like running into a stag party in costume, Matt’s dad/officiant almost breaking his nose (see if you can spot his bloody cut), rain pouring up until the moment we went outside for their first look, sun shining for their crazy-packed walk through Pike Place Market, shoes changing color, clouds and rain rolling in 5 minutes after their ceremony ended, running to save family with umbrellas who didn’t have any, warming up with hot pizza, and all the sweet, lovely moments in between.

Julie & Matt, thank you for having us on the adventure that was your wedding day. It was spectacular, full of love, brimming with stories, and all yours. We hope you remember it forever. ~Erik & Marissa

Ashleigh & Maritza | Carkeek Park Proposal & Engagement

They came to the beach at sunset, a perfect spot for a surprise proposal. She held her hand as they strolled along the shore, taking selfies and looking out to the water. They sat down on a piece of driftwood facing each other, telling stories and just being together in the moment.

Ashleigh was a bit distracted however. She had a huge question on her mind and a hidden ring box inside the hood of her jacket. As they got up to stretch, she subtly reached back, then bent on one knee, completely shocking Maritza, who was quite possibly the happiest person on the entire planet at that moment.

Congratulations Ashleigh & Maritza! We are so happy for you two. Thank you for the honor of capturing one of the happiest days of your lives together. ~Marissa & Erik

Reena & David | Edgewater Hotel Wedding

ciccarelliphotography_0740

When you meet the perfect person you just know. David found his perfect match in Reena. If you haven’t met them, you should know, they are two of the kindest, thoughtful, loving people…which is why it’s so perfect they found one another!

One story told at the wedding was how David leapt at the chance to move with Reena to New York. Even though he was from Seattle and had tons of friends here, he knew that being with Reena was the most important thing in his life. They made a home for themselves in NY, adventured in the city together, and grew inseparable. Even though they were far from friends and family Reena felt home with David. They knew no matter where they were or what other adventures life may send them, if they were together, they’d be happy. Of course this led David to a sweet proposal back in Seattle and the two said, “I Do!” this past month!

Throughout their wedding day everyone kept saying that these two were special. They were talked about as amazing friends, the best son, and the most wonderful sister. We couldn’t have felt any happier being there on your day Reena & David. Thank you for reminding us how important life together can be and how, especially in this time in history, kindness makes everyone feel at home. We know you’ll have a beautiful life with each other! ~Erik & Marissa

Knudson Family | Discovery Park

Year 2 with the Knudsons brought tons of giggles, kisses, new tricks (hooray for August walking already!) and tickle monsters. Watching this sweet family grow is why we love our job! Charlie continues to be the best big sis, hugging her brother and picking flowers for her parents. Such fun!

Thanks Annie & Jeff, for having us document this precious moment in your lives. We know firsthand with our own son it’s not always giggles, kisses and fun, but you two sure make it look easy! ~Erik & Marissa
