Improved Design | The Ciccarellis

We updated our website look a bit this week! We were feeling like our original design was a tad boring and not completely us. Although we worked hard on the original design we always felt like it was missing something. The idea came from us putting together our New Year’s Cards (yeah, we usually don’t get it together in time to do Christmas cards). We decided to put all of our favorite Instagram photos together for a card and loved the look.

This led us to thinking that maybe this same look would be fun for our website so we played with it a bunch and this is what we ended up with!

Nicole & Zac – Coffee Date at Pike’s Place Market

Nicole & Zac are such a wonderful couple. They support each other and are both so kind that we can see why they are a perfect match! When we first talked to them about the location for their engagement session Nicole mentioned they love to go to Pike’s Place Market, walk around together, and stop for some coffee at a cafe. (Seems like the perfect morning to us, no wonder we get along with them so well!) We tried to duplicate their fun outing by meeting at the market and shooting while we walked around. It was really chilly out so we were happy to take breaks inside to warm up! We’re so glad Nicole mentioned coffee, not only did it help warm up their hands, but we got some really fun shots! Thanks for taking a break out of your workout schedule Zac and thanks for laughing with me when I jokingly suggested photos at the gym Nicole (we met in one too!).

Yes, we made Zac tickle Nicole to get her laughing…

Hazy day out, but still loving this silhouette below.

Nicole, great makeup! Your blue eyes look amazing here!

Thank you Nicole & Zac! We are so excited for your wedding in November!

Strolling Our New Neighborhood – The Ciccarellis

We recently moved to a new area of Seattle that we absolutely love! The people are great, tons to do and the coffee is wonderful. It’s seems like every day we find some new hidden little cafe or restaurant. On one of our many strolls through this neighborhood we decided to snap a few photos. We love to take tons of photos but most of them end up being on our iPhones (when we least expect it something beautiful happens and we don’t love lugging around our giant camera bags at every moment). It’s great and frightening to see how sophisticated phone cameras are these days. There really isn’t anything like taking a photo from a real camera though. The feeling, the mood you’re in, the ability to change settings quickly…the camera is a magical thing.

P.S. If you can tell us what neighborhood this is we’ll give you a hug the next time we see you!

(Write in you guess at the bottom of this post under comments. No guessing Lisa & Susan – our moms.)

Hope to see you around town!

Nathan Rennard - Wallingford… it’s ok I know I’d get a hug anyway.

Ciccarelli Photography - Ok, you’re right Nathan, something tells us you already knew somehow… :) Let’s hang out soon!

Michaela & Tom – Engaged! | Seattle Pier 57

Michaela & Tom have moved around a bit (like us!) and we’re so glad they moved here. They really make each other happy and are super easy-going, nice people. We need to repeat that last bit again…they are super easy-going. We met at Pier 57 on the Seattle waterfront because they both love boating and being near the water. All of us crossed our fingers for nice weather (a rarity in these parts) and woke up with no rain (huge plus!), but it was Freezing, like see your breath-chattering teeth-30 degrees-and-windy kind of freezing. Luckily the Miner’s Landing was open so we could take a break inside and warm up, but Michaela & Tom were total troopers! They didn’t wear coats and did not complain once. True East Coasters. We absolutely love how fun and playful their photos turned out!

Thanks Michaela & Tom!

Adam Queen - Absolutely beautiful you guys! You’re rocking out these images. The couple looks very happy and in Love! Stay in touch.

Lisa Henry - Great looking couple!

Marissa Ciccarelli - Thanks Adam! You have been a major component in the success of our business. We must get together next time we’re all in Cbus or Cali!

Avery – Sweetness

Last Friday we had a girls day! I (Marissa) was lucky enough to meet Avery for the first time, proud first child of Danielle. The three of us got to spend the morning together finding the best light inside (it was freezing outside) and making Avery happy, swaddled, and full. One of the cool things about Danielle is that she is actually really into photography so we were able to work together and I talked through some of my techniques and settings. We chatted away about equipment and why I was doing what I was doing while photographing Avery. It was super fun working and teaching at the same time! This may have given me a new idea…anyway, we had a blast and totally wore Avery out! She fell asleep as I was walking out the door, completely exhausted. Avery (almost a carbon copy of her mom) truly is sweetness.

I had to put one of these in, loving how squishy babies faces are when they cry!

Until next time sweet Avery!

Chris Hoerbelt - These are GREAT! So beautiful

Lisa Henry - Beautiful baby! Great job!

Norah Geshkewich O'Brien - Sweetness captured.
