We love working with high school seniors - that's why we built our studio with the goal of giving you the ultimate senior portrait experience! We are privileged to get to meet and work with so many unique, talented, caring, funny, and all-around awesome young people! Every day is a pleasure working with you and your families.
We are Melissa Gates and Danielle Allison. Together we work to capture you at your very best!
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.
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.
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!
