Washington Engagement Photography in Tacoma

Washington Engagement Photography in Tacoma

This was my first engagement photography shoot since moving to Tacoma, Washington 2 months ago.  It was cold out!  Quite a change from Los Angeles.  Hala and Hayden still managed to keep each other warm in the chilly weather though and we had a lot of fun!  We did their engagement session on the Tacoma waterfront and in Point Defiance Park, which is absolutely gorgeous.

I incorporate a lot of symmetry in my photographs, but sometimes my favorite pictures are the ones where the angle is slightly off to the side or from an unique angle.  For this picture I liked how the light was coming through the leaves and I wanted to bring some of that warm soft light into the frame.

I love that they brought something that was personal and unique to them and their relationship like this glass heart.  I think that’s so cool when couples do that.Engagement Shoot with Tacoma Wedding PhotographerEngagement Shoot with Tacoma Wedding PhotographerEngagement Shoot with Tacoma Wedding PhotographerEngagement Shoot with Tacoma Wedding PhotographerEngagement Shoot with Tacoma Wedding Photographer

We’re really looking forward to shooting this wedding next summer at Annie Wright Academy in Tacoma.
