What our happy seniors say...
Deborah K. - Bellevue HS
I have seen a lot of my friends at Bellevue High take their senior pictures here at Vakker Portraits and when I received their July promotion, I immediately knew I had to take my mine here. My friends' pictures turned out amazing, and I received nothing less.
It was absolutely amazing! I have never taken pictures professionally, or rather at all, so I was kind of scared going into my session, but Danielle made me feel really comfortable and led me in all the right directions. She kept me talking and smiling which made my pictures that much greater.
Go here! You can't beat the service and the kind nature this place brings. It's a great and fun experience AND you get amazing senior pictures out of it.

Eli G. - Tesla STEM School
"The staff at Vakker is very friendly, caring, and professional. They really wanted to make sure we got the end results that we wanted and did not push us to make a sale.
As a parent, I take a lot of photos myself (as do many of us nowadays) so I wanted my son’s senior portraits to stand out from the typical photos of him. The photographers at Vakker were able to capture the style and personality of my son through their recommendations on wardrobe and their studio backgrounds and lighting. I am extremely pleased with the results.
We had such a good experience we are thinking about a family portrait session before my son goes off to college!"
Anita G., Eli's mother
Veronica J. - Kings School
"Our experience was terrific! In fact, we had our older daughter come to Vakker's for her senior portraits and liked it so much that we came back with Veronica!
The entire team really takes the time to get to know your child's personality and preferences. They're accommodating and go the extra mile to ensure a positive experience. The quality of the portraits are very good."
Monica J., Veronica's mother
Brett T. - Bellevue HS
"We chose Vakker Portraits because we liked many of the portraits featured in the gallery and knew of several other students who had their portraits taken by Vakker.
We enjoyed working with Vakker very much. Scheduling the sitting, preview and ordering appointments was easy and convenient and our son had a pleasant and comfortable experience with the photographer.
If you're choosing - look for a studio/photographer that takes great portraits and is pleasant and convenient to work with in all three stages - as we did!"
Kamie T., Brett's mother
Kate C. - Eastside Catholic HS
"Vakker Portraits brought out the best in Kate. Their photographers have a keen ability to capture the spirit of the individual and their wide offering of backgrounds is amazing."
Kim C., Kate's mother
Abby T. - Interlake High School
"We have used Vakker Portraits for family portraits, holiday greeting cards and children’s photos since our children were babies.
Vakker Portraits is awesome! We love all of the photographers and staff, and the quality of the photos and the variety of backgrounds is always top notch. I love the variety of the products available – color, sepia, black and white, and besides the typical framed portraits, there is canvas, metal and numerous styles that can be ordered. I’ve also been able to go back to order additional prints and canvases of family portraits from previous sittings done years ago.
Vakker Portraits is the best place to go for senior pictures. They take the time to use many different backgrounds and align the theme of the photo shoot with the interests and attire of the individual. We love Vakkers!"
Laurie T., Abby’s mother
Matt M. - Liberty HS
"We were referred to you for our first son's senior pictures... And we had an amazing experience.
You captured the personality of each of the boys and at the same time gave us the most amazing pictures that we will cherish for ever. They truly were like a piece of art!
We couldn't have been any happier. I will tell everyone to use you. You take some of the stress out of a emotional time.
And on top of it your customer service was great! You worked hard to make our package work for us! Thank you so much!"
Shelley M., Matt's mother
Matthew W. - Skyline HS
"We chose Vakker because we were so happy with our oldest son's senior portrait session and photographs with Vakker. Both boys were not at all interested in getting portraits done. But both ended up having a great time at the session, which made our photos turn out fantastic!
We will be doing our last senior portrait session this summer, as our daughter is in the graduating class of 2017!"
Cindy W., Matthew's mother
Dariya B. - Interlake HS
"I was doing a bunch of research and looking through all the different companies photos and Vakker was my favorite. Vakker's photos were the least touched up and the most natural. I absolutely loved my session. The lady taking my photos was super sweet and knew exactly what angles I looked good in. And the photos turned out amazing! I've never had a photo shoot done and that was the best first experience.
If you want to look natural and have your photos turn out amazing? Vakker is the way to go. Turning seniors into models!"
Dariya B. – Interlake HS
Graeson C. - Newport HS
"We chose Vakker for the high quality & reasonable pricing. Working with them was a great experience. They were flexible with our schedule, getting our son in at a convenient time. The photographer was very professional & made my son feel at ease during the shoot. He actually had a good time and it shows in his pictures!
Another thing I appreciated with Vakker is they offer a lot of different options for ordering pictures. You can order as much or as little as you like. I would tell anyone looking to have senior portraits done, Vakker is the place to go!"
Adrianne C., Graeson's mom
Kat D. - Inglemoor HS
"Our experience at Vakker was awesome! We were a little nervous with how the process worked but became very comfortable the minute we walked in. We loved it! Kat said she didn’t feel awkward posing and felt very comfortable with the photographer.
Picking out the pictures was easy and we didn’t feel pressure to purchase every pose. Before choosing a photographer, we asked several friends about their senior photo experience. Vakker received several compliments on service as well as the final product. We are so happy we came here."
Kat D. and her mother Renee
Blake T. - Issaquah HS
"Thank you for making this such an easy experience! I was actually dreading the whole process, but it could not have gone smoother, and we are so happy with the pictures."
Leanne, Blake's mother
Preston N. - Eastside Catholic HS
" I liked how I was encouraged to let my individual personality come through in the photos, not just the usual poses that everyone else may have."
"I really appreciate the indoor and natural outdoor settings used for the photos as well as the variety of moods you were able to capture. It really showed the many sides of our son. And I loved that there were so many proofs to choose from, hard as that was!"
Merritt N., Preston's mother
Kayla W. - Eastlake HS
"Thank you for spending the time with us in the session and after when we were making the selections! So many great shots! It was so hard to choose! We will be back for our family portrait."
Susan W., Kayla's mother
Jenna R. - Olympia HS
"When it came to deciding on who to use for Jenna’s senior pictures, I always like to get a quality referral. My sister used Vakker Portraits for all of her three son’s senior pictures (her first son graduated 14 years ago) so I gave them a call! My situation was unique because I needed to get year book pictures in, but also wanted to take photos once my daughter had her braces off. They worked with everyone one of my needs and because I was coming from out of town adjusted schedules to make it easier for me.
The staff at Vakkers Portraits were warm, friendly, and always willing to help. When it came to the final viewing and the decisions on the pictures/packages, I could tell I was dealing with an expert which made me feel at ease. I couldn’t have been more impressed with every aspect of the process; I will definitely be recommending them to friends and family. Thanks Vakker Portraits!" Kathy R., Jenna's mother
Mitchell J. - Juanita High School
"Vakker was great! The photo session was comfortable and the photographer was very nice." Mitchell
"I used Vakker for both of my kid's senior pictures and have been very happy with the photos and the service that we've gotten from them. Beforehand, neither one of them was all that excited about doing the photo session but the photographers were very nice and they ended up enjoying it." Brenda, Mitchell's mother
Calvin H. - Bellevue Christian School
"This is our third experience with Vakker for senior portraits and we couldn’t be happier!" Marilyn H., Calvin's mother
Sami R. Holy Names
I loved my experience with Vakker. The makeup artist was so friendly and let me control the amount of make up so I felt comfortable. Then during my session the photographer was so great! In most of my photos shot with other companies I have this fake smile that my family hates but with Vakker that didn't happen! With the hip music in the background and the photographer getting to know me and my personality I was able to shine. Plus my photos were perfect! Not over edited but I looked amazing!
Emily B. Northshore Networks School
The experience I had with Vakker was better than I imagined. They had a professional make up artist come in and cater to your unique style, making the experience almost about you. The poses were natural and not forced. I felt very relaxed during the session and it really shows in the photo's! My pictures turned out amazing and showed a side of me that I hadn't seen before. I loved it! I would recommend Vakker to anyone looking for a stress free experience that brings out the real YOU.
Jocelyn T. Liberty High School
