Amanda & Cheyenne – Vashon Island Portrait Photographer

I’ve never been to Vashon Island. I don’t think I’m alone though, it seems a lot of people haven’t taken the time to explore this small rural island to the West of Seattle. What’s odd about it is that there are THREE ferry docks that service this island. It can be reach from Tacoma, Seattle and Southworth (Port Orchard). With such ease of access how did I not make this trek sooner?

I had put up a casting call on Instagram a few weeks ago and received a handful of people who were interested. One of which was Amanda, who just so happens to be a very close friend of one of my best friends, Cheyenne. Amanda and chey have known each other since 4th Grade and I think I’ve known Chey since about 2011 or 2012. She’s been one of my ride or die buddies for the past few years (even throughout her long travels to Australia and New Zealand.)

The girls came up with the idea for Vashon Island and I just rolled with it since I knew we would find some cool places to shoot. I hopped in Cheyenne’s car and we took the ferry across and met Amanda on the Island and we got to work swiftly since we had limited daylight. we made stops at Island Center Forest and Point Robison Park as well as minor detours along the way. I shot the majority of these photos with my newest lens; Nikon’s 85mm/1.4 AF-D and a few were shot on my Nikon 17-35mm/2.8 when I wanted some wide shots.

I’m very happy with how this set turned out and I’m blown away at how sharp that 85mm lens is, it’s insane. It also renders colors very nicely as well. Take a look and let me know what you think!
