ABOUT US

Welcome to Rusted Van Photography!

We firmly believe every human being has an amazing and unique story to tell, but before we tell yours… here is a little more about ours!

Married since 2002, and starting our business officially in 2012, we found that photography sessions and wedding day photography became almost a fun way to spend some quality “date” time doing something we loved! We love shooting together and bringing two different creative ideas and shooting styles together for a perfect photographic ying-yang. Cicely shoots with a lifestyle technique, providing gentle direction and guidance into natural poses and authentic, relationship-based interactions.  Dan’s focus and passion is for a more photojournalistic/documentary approach, a “fly on the wall” catching those in-between, unscripted moments throughout a session. We are both easy going and relaxed, but we take this job super seriously!

Outside of photography, we love spending time together with our family. With our two kids, we enjoy exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest, even if it’s just around the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley we live in! We love all things “old” and retro and in our younger years we only wore vintage. We always prefer to support small locally-owned businesses and artisans whenever possible, and we feel quite passionate about music – being huge and ongoing supporters of our favorite Seattle radio station, KEXP (in fact, Cicely once sang live over their airwaves…but that’s another story).

“All About Cicely,” according to Dan:

 

Cicely is fond of saying, “You don’t need to be hungry to eat dessert.”  Cicely is a passionate person and will dive headlong into all her projects-and she usually has many projects.  She is a chronic learner and will spend countless hours searching, finding, and learning new techniques .  Although this has greatly increased her ability to make pretty cakes, yummy dinners,  family scrapbooks, and amazingly fun and efficient photo shoots, it has led to her most common gift request:  “a clean house” or “somebody to clean the house.” .  

“All About Dan,” according to Cicely:

Very shortly after we started dating back in 2000, Dan showed me his photography portfolio and I was immediately impressed with his unique perspective and beautiful work. Since then, I have cherished the loving way he has captured our lives through the lens.  Dan is always quietly observing, a trait that heavily influences his work (until you start talking sports). Dan is a lifelong Mariners fan and sometimes rattles off stats and “baseball” trivia as though I can understand what he is talking about! 

She is the best photography assistant, co-photographer, wife, and mother that I could have ever asked for.  Our clients and I agree – she is a real joy and blessing to work with.

Cicely is lead photographer for our newborn sessions and assists with the posing and some of the technical aspects of our portrait sessions, as well as all customer service and adminstration.

Although he won’t turn down ice cream, his preferred dessert is a bowl of frozen blueberries, and every year for Christmas he asks for his own “Sherpa,” which has yet to be delivered, thank goodness. 
Dan is the principal photographer during our family and portrait sessions, and adds the post-production artistic enhancements to the photos.
