Kelsi ~ Class of 2015

Rose-Lily caught up with Kelsi, a Senior at Everett High School (Class of 2015), on 10/12/14 at the barn in Mount Vernon where her horse (a mare named Fiona) is stabled & we did some amazing work!  Kelsi loves her animal companions Fiona & Chewie (the Pit Bull) and allowed us to work with them during a day of awesome Senior photography!  Other highlights were Kelsi’s cool Cinch Boots and her ornate Marlin Rifle.  So needless to say, Kelsi’s interests outside school are country music, practice shooting, horse racing and 4x4ing.  Kelsi said her motto is “the more mud the better”!  She’s not sure where she’s going after Everett High School, but wherever she does she’ll definitely make an impression!  Please join me in wishing Kelsi a big ‘Congratulations’ on her graduation this June along with the rest of the Class of 2015!

Sierra ~ Class of 2015

Sierra (Snohomish High School ~ Class of 2015) met up with Rose-Lily at the Pike Place Market in Seattle for her Senior Session back on 10/04/15 & we had a blast!  Her friend Chelsea joined us as we walked through the Market & made a beautiful, fun set of Senior pictures that really captured the energy of the day!  The Pike Place Market is awesome – so crowds, the hustle & bustle, the scents & sounds – it was awesome!  Sierra loves scuba diving, baking (particularly cupcakes!) & video games.  She is planning to attend DigiPen Institute of Technology next year to become a theme writer for video games.  We ended our session when Sierra met up with friends from the class of 2015 for dinner & talked them into doing some photographs!  Rose-Lily has also been partnering with Laura Wentworth (with to provide fantastic day of hair styling & makeovers for our Senior clients, including Sierra!  Please join me in Congratulating Sierra for her upcoming Graduation in June of 2015, her attendance at DigiPen in the fall and her post high school life!

    Brian ~ Class of 2015

    Rose-Lily worked with Brian (Snohomish High School, Class of 2015) back on 09/27/14 to shoot an incredible set of Senior Pictures photographed at his rustic Snohomish home.  The neighbor’s barn (& dog!) introduced some great elements into our session, as did the wonderful trees that were spread out over the entire property.  Brian is really into Cycling (hence the shots with his bike) and also likes playing video games (he showed us a couple of his favorites during the session).  Brian hopes to attend the Academy of Interactive Entertainment (AIE) next year to turn his passion for video games into a career.  We had a great day, photographed under some fantastic light & had a lot of fun!  Please join me in wishing Brain Congratulations for his pending June 2015 Graduation from Snohomish High School & join me in wishing him much success as he embarks on his post-high school life!

        Malissa & Ragan ~ Wedding

        Jennifer and I ended the 2014 Wedding Season with Malissa & Ragan’s Seattle Wedding at the Lake Union Café on 10/05/14.  Their Wedding will go down as one of the best Weddings we have ever photographed (& most enjoyable)!  Thanks to a lot of great planning on Malissa & Ragan’s part, our day rolled seamlessly from location to location, photographing all the while with our happy couple and their family and friends.  We stated out in Queen Anne at Parsons Park, then headed down the street to Kerry Park (the post-card view point where so many iconic Seattle skyline photographs have been made).  Malissa works at Starbuck’s Corporate Office, so of course a stop at the Queen Anne Starbuck’s was a must!  We wound up at the Fairview Park & the Lake Union Café, where the happy couple married and danced the night away!  Highlights:  Melissa’s stunning dress, the awesome ‘Excalibur Sword’ (from Spain – Malissa’s true life reminder of her second calling as an Epic Fantasy writer), the live Jazz Quartet and the Lobster and Mac & Cheese dish at the LUC (to die for)!  Our happy couple met online about three and a half years ago (which seems fitting since Ragan works in Web Development) and have had quite a journey up to their special day!  And of course like all our Weddings, we need to give credit where credit is due, we worked with some great vendors and here’s their names & links:

        Venue / Catering / Cake:  Lake Union Café

        Dress:  I Do Bridal

        Bridesmaids Dresses:  Bellevue Bridal

        Flowers:  Pike Place Market

        Rings: Green Lake Jewelry

        Music:  Jason Parker Quartet

        So please join me in wishing Malissa and Ragan many-many happy & joyous years ahead, & let’s hope their Honeymoon to California’s Wine Tasting country was all they’d hoped it would be! Congratulations to you both!

          Edmund, these are amazing! You and Jennifer were such a pleasure to work with! I’m so glad you captured so many of the little details at the venue, too, which I didn’t have much time to actually soak in in the moment. Thank you so much for these amazing shots!
