The WT on Whidbey is an exclusive glamping experience created, curated, and cared for by Ron and Denise Vanausdoll located on Whidbey Island in Washington. A short ferry ride out of Seattle and quick 30 min drive brings you to this sweet travelers escape, built from recycled materials Ron found in the area. From the locally sourced wine and chocolates, to the fire pit and games, and the ambiance of their two safari tents — the Vanausdoll’s have thought of everything. Waking up to the sun, using their outdoor rain shower, and then cooking in their outdoor kitchen gave me a serenity I hadn’t found since COVID hit. Head to their website to learn more in depth about all the amazing things they offer!!
I am ridiculously fortunate to have been able to stay on their property and enjoy their facilities, as well as document three different styled sessions while I was there. A styled Bridal Portrait Session (with Catherine) and then Lifestyle and Elopement sessions with @jm.and.km!
HUGE thank you to my models Jon-Martin Lee and Kenzi Meyer!!!! They were available on such short notice after an emergency cancellation and crushed it if I might add. Also, tell me how I found out an hour into shooting that Jon-Martin went to the same high school as me (shoutout Westmont) and graduated a couple years after me!
