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 Randy and Melinda Dellinger. We live in Redmond and have two sons - Mitchell (Redmond HS Class of 2008) and Tyler (Redmond HS Class of 2011). Randy is one of our photographers and manages our in-house custom lab. Melinda handles our marketing and general business management. When we aren't working on the business, we love skiing and backpacking and spending time with friends and family.
Our wonderful and dedicated staff includes Kara (she makes ordering appointments FUN and keeps the office under control), Melissa (a great children's photographer and her 15+ years with us means she has the answer to every question), Danielle (your session will be so much fun with her - she's a talented and caring photographer), plus our team of amazing makeup artists. Together, we work hard to make Vakker the best studio for you and your family to enjoy.
The studio is a really comfortable and spacious place, located just off of SR520 in Bellevue on the corner of Northup and 124th Ave NE. There are three big camera rooms and a beautiful outdoor portrait park right here at the studio. We've landscaped our outdoor area with creative settings specially designed for modern and stylish high school senior portrait 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 working with you to create amazing images for you and your family!
