K & A got married at the beautiful Swiftwater Cellars in Suncadia, Cle Elum on an unusually chilly June day. With temperatures mainly in the 40s and a chilly wind blowing through, along with some rain showers, Swiftwater Cellars had plenty of indoor spaces and a heated patio area for guests to warm up, eat, and celebrate. That’s not to say that the wind didn’t get to really make its presence known. About half way through the ceremony, the wind nearly knocked over the floral archway that the couple was standing under, but some quick reactions by the bride’s sister and one of the groom’s bro ..read more

Snoqualmie & North Bend Family Photographer | James Thomas Long Photography | Family of Three!

I had the pleasure of photographing this wonderful family of three at a local park. It was their first professional photography session together as a family, so it was a quite a special day and I’m also glad we got to incorporate their little guy’s Nanna and their little dog as well! We had a great time running, hoisting, spinning, flying… you name it, we pretty much did it! And the results were quite awesome! I love capturing this age when they are still full of wonder, but able to follow some directions, have fun playing chase with mom and dad, and even ride my vintage tricycle! And wow, he ..read more

Snoqualmie Adventure Family Photographer | James Thomas Long Photography | Happy 20th Anniversary to a Lovely Couple!

This lovely couple came all the way from Indiana to celebrate their 20th anniversary here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest! Happy anniversary you two! Mountains, evergreen forests, and water were on their short list of scenery must-haves, so I’m glad we found a great location with plenty of all of these things for them! Since areas near Mt. Rainier are still covered in lots of snow, we opted for some mountain views and a lake at a lower elevation and lucked out with a beautiful weather day (just after several days in a row of rain)! It was nice and cool so we never had to worry about gettin ..read more

Seattle Senior Portrait Photographer | James Thomas Long Photography | Congratulations Class of 2024!

This amazing senior is headed to the US Air Force Academy in just a few months, so I’m glad we got the chance to capture these images of this exciting time in his life before he heads off to new adventures after High School! And it’s awesome that we got to capture these for him in the Spring! Outdoor Spring sessions are always a lot of fun and quite a treat because of all that brand new greenery out there. The PNW is green year-round (thanks largely to our abundant evergreen trees), but Spring and early Summer really bring out the green in ways that no other seasons can. Plus, most locations ..read more

This amazing senior wanted a local senior portrait session with Mount Si in the background, so we had it right here in the Snoqualmie Valley! And after having to reschedule a couple of times on account of weather, we finally lucked out with a warm, dry day – record-breaking warmth for March, as a matter of fact! We had great time exploring the area, including the old (former) railroad bridge crossing the Snoqualmie River. She brought along some great props, including her saddle (originally we were going to include her horse, but that didn’t work out, so we did the next best thing!), awesome c ..read more

I met up with this beautiful family of three and their extended family at the Washington Arboretum in Seattle on a recent warm spring day when all of the cherry blossoms were in peak bloom. It was their baby boy’s first professional photography session! Doing my usual pre-scouting before the session (something I always do before sessions, even for locations I go to all the time), I counted about 15-20 photoshoots all happening within a relatively small space, primarily clustered around each and every cherry blossom tree! Yes, it was crazy crowded! While such crowds do present challenges when ..read more

Seattle Senior Portrait Photographer | James Thomas Long Photography | Pacific Northwest Forest Session!

This amazing senior wanted his senior portraits in a Pacific Northwest forest, with plenty of trees and water too. So we opted to meet up at a location that would have both, a location that I actually drive by all the time, but hadn’t really explored yet. It was absolutely awesome! It never ceases to amaze me how much natural beauty the Pacific Northwest has. And while Olympic National Park gets most of the “Northern Rainforest” accolades, the western slopes of the Cascades are incredibly similar and arguably just as beautiful, full of mossy trees, ferns, and mountains looming above. This loc ..read more

Snoqualmie Senior Portrait Photographer | James Thomas Long Photography | In the Snow at Snoqualmie Pass!

This amazing senior wanted his portraits in the snow! In fact, when his Mom reached out to me to set up his session, the first thing she mentioned about him was that he loves the snow! And truth be told, I love the snow too! In fact, winter has always been my favorite season (by far – the others are not even close, although I do love fall as well)! So, we made the short drive up to the pass where plenty of new snow had recently fallen and it was perfect! He brought some of his hockey gear as well, along with their dog who seemed to like the snow just about as much as he did! We had a super fu ..read more

North Bend WA Family Photographer | James Thomas Long Photography | Family of Ten!

I think this lovely family of ten may just be the largest single family I’ve photographed thus far, and that is saying something because I’ve photographed quite a number of families over the 14+ years I’ve been a full-time photographer! And while it’s always a challenge trying to keep everyone in a large group engaged, especially when it’s cold and when you’ve got young kids and older kids too, nevertheless, we rocked it out there on a that chilly morning! Everything worked out perfectly, which was especially awesome since this was the last holiday season they’d all be together for a while, w ..read more

I’m always up for a little adventure in the mountains and late fall just before the snow arrives is always one of my favorite times for mountain adventure sessions. And that’s exactly what we did for this amazing senior! He’s an avid snowboarder, so we originally were planning to incorporate that, but the late arrival of snow to the area this season forced us to change our plans a bit. But we rocked it nonetheless! I loved his casual style intermingled with the tree stumps and snow-covered mountains in the background! It was a bit chilly that day, especially with some icy wind whipping throug ..read more
