Ema & Zeeshan | Seattle Mehendi Photographer

Part 1: The Mehendi

We love when our couples ask us to document other important days of their wedding celebration. This Mehendi was celebrated the night before Ema & Zeeshan’s wedding day and was full of small touches to highlight both of their cultures and the fusion of them coming together. Not to mention the most awesome henna ever (notice the two different skylines on the last photo?)! Maddy, of Little Wedding Blush, brought their vision to life, transforming the backyard of Ema’s parents into a magical space.

Ema & Zeeshan, from the cotton candy to the incredible dance moves to the feeling of joy and anticipation for the next day, this evening was full of love and magic. So glad to be a part of it! ~Erik & Marissa

Katrina & Taylor | Discovery Park Maternity

We’ve known Kat since before the boys were born. She was my (Marissa) workout buddy before having the kids made me stop going to the gym, haha! We’ve always loved her (she might be one of the kindest souls on the planet) and were so happy to hear that she and her main man Taylor were expecting their first baby (well, technically their first human baby). Their baby story is one of those miracle stories you should ask her about one day! And of course their pup, Clyde, made an appearance in their final family pictures of just the three of them.

Kat & Taylor, loved making this moment a memory for you to look back on with your baby one day! You two will make amazing parents. We’re so happy for you! ~Erik & Marissa

Dumich Family | Seattle Newborn Photographer

We always say we have the greatest job in the world. And this is one of the reasons we feel that way!

Tiny baby Charlie was welcomed to the world by his sweet sister and loving parents and not only did we get to document his first chubby cheeks and itty fingers, but we got to love on him too! See, I (Marissa) have known Maggie (mama) from a past life when we were all living in Chicago and Maggie and I taught down the hall from each other at a Chicago Public School. Little did we know way back then that our lives would change so much, we’d both end up in the PNW, married, raising kids and having playdates. It just makes documenting their newest addition that much sweeter!

Congratulations Maggie & Andy! He’s perfect. ~Erik & Marissa


because sometimes taking photos AND being a big sister are a lot of work…

Ema & Zeeshan | UW & Suzzallo Engagement Photographer

These two bookworms are meant to be together. Not only did they host a book-themed wedding, but in planning their winter engagement session it only made sense to visit the UW campus and tiptoe into the Suzzallo library for a few photos. After our fill of fun with books we tromped around the rest of campus laughing away (he really knows how to make her laugh).

Such a fun session with two seriously smart and incredibly kind people. If you haven’t seen this library it is a must-see, especially if you are big Harry Potter fans like us! ~Erik & Marissa

Tree Farm | The Ciccarellis

It was the only day we could do it, between nap schedules, shoots, work, and the craziness of the holiday season. The forecast was not great, it would definitely rain, but we were determined to go to the same place we did last year and have Rhys be a part of our family tree picking tradition at the farm.

Sure enough, after a bit of a drive (the littles did great, thank goodness) we arrived in the rain. The kids were so good about it, even though it wasn’t just sprinkling! We set up a tripod and took a few pics before selecting our tree and then getting to the best part…candy canes and hot cocoa! The car ride home was toasty and comforting as we sipped our cocoa and talked about how silly we were to be walking through the rain on the tree farm. Certainly a year we won’t forget!

Happy holidays! We hope you have a wonderful week celebrating with those you love. Fingers crossed that this rain turns to snow next week! ~Erik & Marissa
