Chinese Reconciliation Park



This engagement session was my first time photographing at Tacoma Chinese Reconciliation Park!

I can’t believe it was my first time here. I’ve driven up and down the road this park is on a million times. It’s really tucked away for how close it is to a main road headed towards Ruston Way and the Point Defiance Rose Gardens.

Amy and Rob will be getting married at the Brown’s Point Improvement Club immediately neighboring one of my favorite portrait locations, Brown’s Point Lighthouse Park!

Here is a wedding I’ve photographed at their venue before. I can’t wait to see how Amy & Rob make the venue their own!

These two are so fun and foodies like me! I love following all of their porch dinners and adventures (before this stinkin lock down!).

When we first arrived the sun was a little high, so we walked to the very edge of the park to see everything available to use during our shoot. My favorites were definitely the beautiful white bridge and the sun dial.

Thank you so much to Amy & Rob for taking the time to meet for your engagement session! Couple’s sessions before the wedding really help prepare us for portraits on your wedding day. They are so much quicker and easier when we’ve worked together before!

July seriously can’t come fast enough! ♥

Hi! How are you? Thinking of lots of my clients lately and hoping you’re doing well no matter where life has taken you! I’ve been laying low. Loving on my kiddos, friends, sisters, and partners. They’re all taking great care of me, too! Working my booty offf. Trying to eat healthy and navigate adulting more […]

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]

I hope you know better

You’ll walk through a glittering white veil, uncharacteristically soft compared to what you’ll find behind it. It has no need to keep you out. You quickly realize it’s the aura within that turns most around. The texture disorients. I’ll already be inside. What do you see? Upon first impression, you’re in a desert. Interesting considering […]
