This is not the first time I have photographed these two love birds. Marissa and I met through my niece, Olivia, years ago while they were pregnant with their first child together! We reconnected when Marissa and Gabe were expecting their little lady Lucca. Gabe claiming to be the “awkward one” he opted out of maternity portraits, so Olivia and Marissa had a girls day!
Check out Marissa and Olivia’s BFF maternity session here. http://dealeaphotography.com/2017/04/bffs-in-ellicottville/
One of the first things I noticed about Marissa and Gabe is that their relationship is surrounded by laughter and sarcasm. They are the easiest couple be surrounded by because they are so easy going.
They decided to leave their two little ones behind for this one! ☝️ As much as I love incorporating children into an engagement session it was great to casually walk around the village and chat about their upcoming Ellicottville wedding.
In just a few short months, Gabe and Marissa will tie the knot in Marissa’s Olivia’s backyard in Ellicottville. A September wedding in EVL? What could be better? UM. Nothing.
If you are in the wedding planning stages reach out! I would be happy to meet with you talk to about the details!
