The 2018 issue of Bellingham Alive’s Winter Fashion magazine was SO much fun to be a part of! I loved the neutral color scheme with pops of colors and FEATHERS! Lisa Karlberg hand crafted all of the feather wardrobe pieces herself and handpicked the outfits and accessories from local businesses. Find the entire list of participating shops below! You can find this issue on store shelves near you until the end of December!
The Heliotrope Hotel is a little gem located just minutes from downtown Bellingham offering easy access to all sorts of Pacific Northwest fun. It’s right on the bus line and walking distance to all sorts of local businesses- it makes for a great jumping off point for whatever your adventurous heart desires. It’s also the perfect spot for a unique kind of wedding day! Friends and family can all stay in the newly renovated rooms and the pavilion is the perfect size for a smaller wedding ceremony. This session was meant to feature just that- an all day adventure starting and ending at the Heliotrope Hotel!
I loved working with this awesome team of vendors to really show off the unique and colorful aspects of the Heliotrope. We wanted to show how a couple might utilize this space and take full advantage of the central location. These two started the day off with a hike with their dog (the hotel is dog friendly, too!) before coming back to get ready for their celebration! You’ll see photos in the hotel rooms that are full of natural light, shots of their bridal party on the property with all kinds of bright and geometric backdrops as well as ceremony and reception photos. Everything took place right onsite which is what really makes this venue special. Everything is all in one place and you can spend the time with your guests relaxing and enjoying yourself!
Every single one of the businesses involved in this shoot are LOCAL and AWESOME. We all specialize in weddings and events and can help make your day special, too. Absolutely check each one of them out if you’re on the lookout for vendors of your own!

Many people come to me asking how to make their business look good. So many people worry that their business or product might not be “glamorous” enough to create engaging, pretty content. I beg to differ! There are so many ways to show off all kinds of businesses and professions. You are the only business owner or company that can do exactly what you do. I like to find ways to show your clients just what it is you offer them in a creative, colorful and engaging way. Message me and I think we can show off your business in an all new way, too.
This awesome local company Glacier Pacific LLC is located in Whatcom County and specializes in solar energy and refrigeration. They wanted to show off their solar panels, their family run business and the kinds of support they can offer you in both refrigeration and solar. We walked their shop, took a peek inside their works trucks and wandered their beautiful property. We were able to beautifully capture all different aspects of the things that make this company unique!
