Photographers Edmund Smith, Jennifer Fryer, Ashley Berryessa and Carlos Soto work together as Rose-Lily Photography.

Our goal is to professionally use the art of digital photography to create images that capture the essence of our clients most joyful and memorable life moments for all time.  We want our photographs to tell the story of you – love, laughter, tears of joy – all of it – to celebrate over & over again every time you open one if our beautiful Wedding, Family or Senior Albums.

Edmund is the primary Photographer for Rose-Lily.  He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Photography from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 1991 and has since accrued 25 years of professional photography experience.  After moving to the West Coast, he worked for San Francisco & Seattle based portrait photography companies in the 1990’s, and has been working independently from 2001 until today.  Edmund uses natural and artificial light beautifully in his photographs and consistently produces artistic, timeless images for Rose-Lily clients.  Edmund founded Rose-Lily Photography (originally as known as ‘Valley Portrait Photography’) in Mount Vernon in July of 2005.  Edmund, his wife Teresa, their daughter and a variety of companion animals now live in Arlington in Snohomish County.

Jennifer has been with Rose-Lily for since 2008 as a Wedding Photographer.  Jennifer has been actively making stunning and thoughtful portraits since 1993 when her friends would hire her for senior photos. She spent over 15 years working in photo labs while gaining hands on experience in weddings and family portraits with various mentors. She is mom to two young daughters and lives in Tacoma. Still shooting film as well as digital with passion, Jennifer has honed her skills and brings creativity and innovation to her projects.

Ashley has been working with Rose-Lily over since 2013 as a Wedding Photographer.  Ashley has been shooting Weddings professionally for about three years, but has always had a passion for photography and art. Her photography demonstrates an amazing ability to use light to create beautiful imagery and her detail & portrait work are stunning.  Ashley keeps busy with her two kids and also loves to go camping, hit karaoke spots, and check out live music with her partner Carlos!

Carlos has always had a passion for the arts and has played in many local bands as a drummer.  His passion for photography started about 2 years ago after he was introduced to Wedding Photography by Ashley.  He joined her at a few Weddings as an assistant and he instantly fell in love with the idea of capturing someone’s special day and all the creative options he had behind the lens.  He and Ashley now work together as an amazing team and love every minute of it!
