Our new photography website and blog is under construction…finally! We can’t wait to unveil all the new things coming up as well as tell you about recent photo shoots and projects we’ve been working on. We can’t reveal too much yet but it will be exciting! So stay tuned and thanks for your patience everyone.
Since blog posts are more interesting with photos, I’ll leave you with a recent image of Tonic Studio Photography’s no. 1 fan, Ash. Took this paparazzi image of Ash while he was out and about roaming the eagle sanctuary earlier this year.
We’ll be back with more lifestyle and commercial shoot images on our new website and blog very, very soon!
Each month, we will do a blog post about a favorite wedding vendor in order for you to learn more about these talented people.
Since nothing says romance quite like flowers and wine, we are excited to feature one of our favorite vendors in the area, Ector de Leon, one of the owners of the Tulip Valley Vineyard & Orchard, which is the home of the Red Barn Cider and the world famous Tulip Valley Wines.
The Tulip Valley Vineyard is a “must see” destination here in Skagit Valley.
Built around a 1920’s Red barn, this beautiful Winery also offers a Tuscany inspired wine tasting room, where you will find traditional wines such as chardonnay and pinot noir, in addition to some award-winning apple-cider wines made from local fruit. Stop by any day and you are more than likely to meet Ector de Leon, the hospitable winemaker and Vineyard co-owner, who is always ready to tell you the stories behind their award winning wines and cider.
Come by this month for a sip of their local wines and ciders, meet the owners, take a tour of their art gallery and listen to local musicians perform. While there be sure to view Tonic Design Studio’s fine art canvas prints currently on display in their Tulip Room.
If you are a bride in the process of planning your wedding, and you & your partner both love wine, why not consider having a wine themed wedding? For a Wine themed wedding, a winery is the best choice because it offers great views, timeless beauty, and tranquility for your guests and your loved one. Be sure to call Ector at Tulip Valley Vineyard and ask him about hosting your wedding or your reception there.
