I was born and raised in the breathtaking Walla Walla Valley in sunny southeastern Washington and I love incorporating the beauty of God's nature into my photos. I'm primarily a natural light photographer and I can be frequently found chasing down the sunlight to grab a few of those beautiful sunrays.
I absolutely LOVE my work and I hope that it shows! I believe that a photograph can capture the purity of a moment in a way that expresses the feelings and themes in life that words cannot.

Ross James Photography
“Hello! My name is Ross James Wallette. Through my childhood in the states of Montana, Alaska, Oregon, and Washington, I remember being drawn to 2 things. Making music and capturing photos. In university, I studied both, but that’s when I decided I didn’t want to do anything else besides photography. I'm 36 years old now and glad I made that choice!
Over the years I have operated my photography studio in Seattle, Ellensburg, Tri-Cities (all WA state), as well as Seoul, South Korea. I am currently based in the cozy town of Kennewick, WA with my wife and 9-month old daughter, Gianna.” www.rossjames.net
Sara Renee Photography
“HEY, I'M SARA ... Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m the girl behind the lens.
I got my first camera when I was in elementary school and have had a camera ever since. I loved capturing moments and going to get the images developed. In college, I was gifted my first DSLR camera for my birthday at 19 years old. Back then, I would take friends out to do photo shoots so that I could learn how to work my camera. You could always find me editing photos on Friday nights instead of going out, and still to this day, I love my Netflix nights and editing.” www.sarareneephotography.com
