We are here for you! This is the best job in the world... to give people the gift of love wrapped up in a beautiful work of art with an experience that's meaningful and fun for everyone involved. That's why we have been doing this for over 25 years. Seeing your tears of joy and receiving your hugs of thanks makes us love what we do. We want you to love it, too!
We are Melissa Gates and Danielle Allison. Together we work to capture you at your very best!
Melissa is a wonderful photographer with a knack for children. Her 21+ years here means she has the answer to every question, not to mention she can turn any frown upside down. In her spare time she keeps busy with her two teenage daughters and fun-loving husband.
Danielle, a transplant from Michigan, is our high school senior portrait photographer and behind the scenes digital artist. When she's not creating memories for our clients, she is creating memories of her own hiking throughout our beautiful state.
Amber and Jesse are here to help you look amazing and feel your best during your photo session. Their experience and education in the artistry of makeup means they have plenty of beauty secrets up their sleeves.
Together, we work hard to make Vakker the best studio possible for you and your family to enjoy.
The studio is a really comfortable place, located close to SR520 in Bellevue. We have a spacious camera room and an outdoor portrait park right here at the studio, for high school seniors, small families, and children's photography. We also have a huge variety of gorgeous backdrops and props in the studio, to create unique looks personalized to you.
We look forward to creating amazing images for you and your family!
