Matt, Michelle & Cael ~ Family

We’ve worked with Michelle, Matt and Cael before about a year ago, so you can imagine our surprise when we saw Cael!  Wow – he’s not a baby any more – now he’s a man on the move (running, talking, pointing at important things)!  We photographed this current session about a week ago in Mount Vernon (thanks guys for making the drive from the Island!) at Hillcrest Park.  We were joined by the 4 people that also played an important role in all this – the Grandparents!  Michelle’s parents were down from Canada and Matt’s folks are local, so they joined us at Hillcrest and we made a day of it!  We captured great shots in the beautiful filtered light provided in this wooded setting.  We directed some shots & let Cael run the show for others – when all was said and done, the end result was a great Family Session.

    Anthony & Lindsey ~ Wedding

    It was such a pleasure to work with Anthony and Lindsay at their Wedding on 03/03/13.  They married at Hidden Meadows in Snohomish (stunning venue!) and we had a ‘picture perfect’ day!  The love they have for each other was captured in the shots Jenn & I took on this day …. & we had a lot of laughs too!  Their Wedding Party & Family looked great and the vibe in the air was relaxed and humorous! Several other fantastic venders also helped to make the day special for Anthony & Lindsey.   Lindsey was wearing a beautiful Wedding Dress courtesy of Laineemeg Bridal of Snohomish;  great cake was courtesy of Happy Cakes, stylish rings were courtesy of the Shane Co., Officiant Rickie Byers delivered a moving ceremony, Barry’s Catering provided great eats, the beautiful floral arrangements were from The Petal & The Stem, The Tux Shop kept Groom & Groomsman looking handsome all day long & a special THANK YOU to JD the DJ for a seriously rockin’ reception!  A wonderful day for a wonderful couple!  Please join us in wishing many years of happiness for Anthony & Lindsey!

      Chante & Russell ~ Engagement

      VPP met up with Chante & Russell at Tolt-MacDonald Park in Carnationon 03/02/13 for a wonderful Engagement Session!  We dodged the big rain by about an hour & used our dry weather window to get a variety of fun shots at a park that means so much to our happy couple!  Chante & Russell both were raised around Carnation and met there & fell in love!  The photos we captured on this wonderful afternoon show how relaxed & in love they are during this exciting time prior to their Wedding in August at Swans Trail Farms in Snohomish.  We were able to use almost exclusively natural light, and we’re grateful to Chante for bringing some great ideas with her to the session as well as the couple’s canine companion – a sweet-natured young black lab named Riley! Great day – great photographs – thanks Chante & Russell & we’ll see you in August at Swans Trail Farms!
