I always say 'privileged," because I believe it so true, when I am hired to photograph any job, but especially a wedding. Danielle and Lee were married in the Tacoma Convention Center, an amazing facility with ramps, catwalks, huge windows that let in big, soft light, and large wooden beams overhead, just to whet your appetite with a few awesome features about the place. Every area was great for photographing the bride and groom and wedding party! Some of the stair shots were quite fun to create, with me clear across the room on a step stool, trying not to fall off onto the escalator I was hovering over. The ceremony was held in a lightly decorated room, with a stage, to maximize the "wow" factor when we moved into the very large reception room, decorated beautifully with help from their wedding coordinator. Finally, we had a really fun dance, on a wooden dance floor surrounded by multi-colored stage lights, that set the final, excited mood for the rest of the evening.

This couple and their friends were so much fun and held such respect for each other... Nothing was held back. I hope you enjoy these photos from this wedding as much as I enjoyed creating them. Privileged? You bet. Thank you Danielle and Lee for entrusting me with your wedding memories!
