love the small moments...






...that make up your story.

Welcome! We're Erik & Marissa, husband and wife photographers based in Seattle. We love what we do because we get to meet the best people and tell their story. Everyone has a story to tell, let us help tell yours.





As High School Sweethearts we believe in finding love in random places (like our high school gym), sharing memories with those you love, and cherishing small moments. 

For 10 years we've been building our family-run photography business. We're lucky to have forever clients that have been with us since the beginning! 

We love each other and our kids. Each day we try to fill our love tanks with quality time, kind words and every once in awhile a living room dance party.

Get to Know Us

The story began back in our high school. I noticed Erik in the gym while he was bench pressing! He asked me to prom with a message written with cups in a fence and we've been in love ever since.

Our Story

7 years later while Marissa was away for the evening, I set out rose petals and candles in our Chicago apartment to ask her to marry me. She said, "are you serious?" and then "YES!"

We'll never forget the feeling of walking down the aisle, dancing in the sand, and the electricity of our first kiss on our wedding thanks to the photographs that captured it all. It was one of the reasons we were inspired to become wedding photographers!

After getting hitched we moved from Chicago to Cali, spent a year exploring and then headed to Seattle to make our permanent home and start our family. Our kids are our latest, hardest, and most rewarding adventure yet!

Fun Facts

My wife created my sweet tooth. It never existed until we met.

Halloween is the best holiday. We go all out (see below).

Since I'm from Ohio I have to mention my favorite athlete of all times is Lebron James.

I believe it should be the law that every weekend is 3 days.


Fun Facts


My love language is quality time so I'm all about planning adventures big and small.

I have a huge sweet tooth. Anything chocolate is my go-to.

The dance floor will never be empty if I'm a guest at your wedding.

Erik thinks it's hilarious when I sing the "words" to a song since I make up 90% of them. 

The best things I ever did was marry my best friend and become a mama.
