Introduction: Information regarding Covid-19. Photography can be an up close and personal affair. But it doesn't have to be. This is why I bought longer lenses! These are difficult times and there are many types of photographic event which must be postponed until normality returns. However, there are some forms of photography that can be done safely whilst maintaining social distancing. Parties, weddings, bar mitzvahs and so forth I having to be postponed for obvious reasons. Please feel free to book your event with me and if these restrictions continue I am offering to reschedule for a later date and if you're event is entirely cancelled your deposit can be used for a shoot of any form at any time so, for instance, if you have a party that must be cancelled any deposit that you have given me could be used for a family shoot or a portraiture session at any point with no time restriction. Studio and location portraiture is still perfectly possible as long as we take reasonable precautions. The same goes for real estate and food photography. Please just get in touch to talk about this and feel free to inquire about booking. Thanks very much, Phil I have over 32 years of experience as a photographer. My passion is to help you capture life's most beautiful moments! My main focus is weddings but I also have a fully equipped downtown studio (with transportable lights to come to you). I’ve had the honor to capture over 50 weddings. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer who will provide you with timeless images whilst leaving you the financial resources to afford the caterer, the venue, and everything else that goes into creating the perfect day, trust me to make it happen! Get in touch with me for a free, no obligation meeting. I’ll buy the coffee! With over 30 years of experience I believe that my talent and abilities are what set me apart from all the other photographers. Let me help you to create something beautiful and lasting of your wedding

Grace P.

Wedding and Event Photography

Phil was great to work with! He provided very nice photos for our small wedding at an affordable price. Due completely to my lack of planning and direction, and not by any fault of Phil, I didn't get every single shot I was hoping for, but Phil went the extra mile and graciously helped me select additional raw photos for processing after the fact. If I could do the wedding again, the only thing I would change is to make a list of priority shots (certain people's portraits, etc.). Our photos are beautiful and Phil's presence was warm and professional- I would definitely recommend him.

Portrait Photography

From start to finish Phil Rose was professional. He brought his assistant (his lovely wife) on picture day. They were kind (interacted with my family well). They wore masks the entire time which was appreciated. The quality of photos versus value/cost does not compare. I felt like I should have been paying more!!! He was extremely prompt in completing picture edits and getting them back to me (24 hours). I asked for a couple additional edits and happily agreed! VERY PLEASED. Bellingham's best find! I

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    All prices for shoots are custom created so please ask but here is a very rough estimate. Location portrait shoots and business headshots usually come in at $120 Studio shoots with studio lighting are about $160. Weddings range from $500 for a 2 hour off season Wednesday to $2000 for an 8 hour July Saturday. Real Estate varies based on location from $150-250. Food and commercial product work averages $200. Other shoots need to be custom quoted. Please see for more information on what you get and don't get from a shoot. This is very important and these rules will apply to all shoots. Most importantly, if you have any questions, please ask!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My typical process really depends upon project. A lot of my work is in wedding photography and this is the arena which has the most options and requires the most personalisation. If the couple is local the ideal situation is for us to meet for a cup of coffee which comes with no obligation and which I will even buy! At this meeting we would talk over exactly what couple is looking for and decide if we are a good fit. I would then be able to provide a more exact bid. If the couple does not live locally such a meeting could be done over the telephone. The areas of photography that I do is a varied that the process is equally varied. Do, please just get in touch.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communication from Herriott Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland along with a variety of other trade qualifications. I continually strive to better myself come by reading and working through tutorials online that help me continually improve my post processing skills.
