Heather & Jaric ~ Wedding

Rose-Lily enjoyed a wonderful day of photography with Heather & Jaric at a private residence in Machias at their Wedding on 08/13/16!  All of our happy couple’s friends & family chipped in to make their storybook Wedding come to life!  Heather’s dress was amazing & Jaric cleaned up pretty well himself in his tux & boutonniere!  Highlights of the day were the venue’s beautiful pond, the incredible pulled pork sandwiches, the delicious Wedding Cake and the Rockin’ Reception band (we even had fun at the very end with the sparkler send off)!  Please join me in wishing Heather & Jaric many-many happy years together & check out these highlight images their amazing day!

    Mark & Kelsie ~ Engagement

    Rose-Lily met up with Kelsie & Mark at the University of Washington Arboretum back on 08/14/16 for a wonderful, sun-filled Engagement Session!   Our weather was perfect as we made our way through the park photographing our happy couple!  Kelsie & Mark first met in college through mutual friends.  Kelsey went to Scripps and Mark went to Claremont McKenna (neighboring schools in Claremont, CA). Mark and Kelsey had their first date at a coffee shop on campus and then dated for 5 years before getting engaged in California at a special family vacation spot.  Mark moved to Seattle soon after the Engagement and now they live together with their two cats (Zack & Benji) in Bellevue. Mark is a CPA for a local accounting firm in Seattle and Kelsey is working toward her PhD in nutritional science at the University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.  For fun our happy couple enjoys hiking, traveling, wine tasting, hanging with family/friends, sporting events, theater, and country music concerts!   Rose-Lily is looking forward to meeting up with Kelsie & Mark on the big day at the Monte Cristo Ballroom in Everett on 11/01/16!  Until then, please enjoy this highlight set and join in Congratulating the Happy Couple!

      Alex & Colin ~ Wedding

      It was such a privilege for us to photograph Alex & Colin’s Wedding on 07/23/16 at Twin Willow Gardens in Snohomish.  It was a beautiful day that gave us intermittent patches of shade just when we needed it most.  Twin Willows is one of our favorite Snohomish Wedding Venues; with an incredible variety of natural, rustic settings it provided perfect backgrounds for our Happy Couple’s Wedding photographs!  As always, we wanted to give a shout out some of our professional colleagues who also helped to make Alex & Colin’s Wedding so special; Prudence & Sage Events (Great Event Coordination – thanks Emily for keeping us right on time!)  Kathi’s Freelance Floral (stunning arrangements, bouquets and boutonnieres), Streetzereeia (delicious gourmet pizza – yum!), Prive Events / Prive Bars (top notch bar-tending services), Moonie Icy Tunes (delicious ice cream treats!) and Groove Entertainment (DJ Doughboy rocked the nigh away)!  Jenn & I both loved this Wedding!  Alex & Colin looked amazing & they were so relaxed & happy!  Working with their Wedding Party & Family was also an incredible experience!  The whole day perfect & everyone had so much fun (we even had a couple visits from Darth Vader!) – just check out these highlights!

        Hand me the tissue box please! These photographs are absolutely beautiful! Rose Lily Photography has captured every moment to perfection. The colors are so vibrant and the facial expressions are priceless. The photographers knew exactly which angles and vantage points were the best and they didn’t miss ANYTHING! I like to take pictures because I love to relive wonderful moments but sometimes when I’m so focused on trying to get a good shot of one thing, I end up missing other important moments that are going on around me. For my son’s wedding, I decided to leave my camera behind and trust the photographers to capture all of the memories for me. They have exceeded my hopes and expectations!! Thank you so much Rose Lily Photography!!!
