Rainy Day Pikes Place Engagement Session

Sometimes I book my clients over the phone, because, hey, life is busy and sometimes its the only way.  Katherine and Mark seemed adorable on the phone, but they were even more so in person. We communicated for weeks, planning what to wear and where to shoot, and decided on a park near Seattle. But then when the day came, the rain was at full power. Instead of trying to stay under cover at the park, we decided to go for Pikes Place Market and embrace the rain. There would be plenty of cover.  We met a little later than expected because of traffic, and so it ended up being a night time rainy day engagement session. Which we embraced and the photos came out so beautiful and unique. And to make it even better, we ended the session at the bar where they went on their first date!  See the Pikes Place Market engagement below. 

"My fiancé and I recently booked Picture Marvelous to take our engagement and wedding photos, and I couldn’t be happier that we found Marivel! From Day #1, Marivel replied to every email and text extremely promptly—within minutes, sometimes!—and has always been sure to thoroughly answer all of my many questions. We scheduled our engagement shoot on what turned out to be one of the rainiest days of the year, and Marivel happily agreed to change locations last-minute and brave Pike Place to capture some shots under cover. We had an amazing session together; she’s so warm and kind-hearted. We really appreciated her creative eye and willingness to bounce from location to location. She made the photo shoot comfortable for my fiancé and me, and always had a smile on, even though it was pouring buckets. Within just a few short hours after our shoot, Marivel had provided us with a “sneak peek” shot (which was SO stunning!), and she provided the entire album to us nearly a week before we were expecting it. The photos are incredible. She is a wonderfully talented photographer and I can’t wait for her to photograph our wedding! Recap: she’s kind, professional, prompt, affordable, and EXTREMELY good at what she does. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Thank you so much, Marivel!" -Kathy and Mark
