peter + mollie

Peter & Mollie! AHH! You’re married! I am so so happy for you two!!!!!

Capturing your day was truly the BEST!!!! Ben & I had a blast!!!!! So incredible that it was sunny & beautiful!

A little windy, but ah!, it made your veil blow perfectly!

Shooting downtown Tacoma, was nothing short of phenomenal!!!! Couldn’t ask for a better place to take pics!!!

Peter & Mollie decided to do a first glance. It was Ben’s favorite moment of the day!!!!! Yes, we always go through the wedding day,

& Ben mentioned that the First Glance was his favorite!!!!!! The Tacoma Convention Center made for a great place to take pics!

We met the Bridal Party down at Tacoma Union Station and had a great time shooting in that area!

The Ceremony & Reception was held at Pioneer Park Pavillion !

Thank you both for the honor of capturing your beautiful day!!!!
