Point Defiance Park Engagement Session | Tacoma, WA

I absolutely love having engagement sessions at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, WA. This park is insanely versatile and I feel it fits the needs and wants of every couple looking to have an engagement session here. There’s SO many locations to choose from such as the Rose Garden near the main entrance, the Point Defiance Pagoda, Owens Beach, and the numerous stops along the 5 mile Drive. As the saying goes, “the possibilities are endless!”

Niza and Arvin wanted their location to fully embrace the beauty that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, after all they started dating right after they went hiking at Rattlesnake Ridge with family and friends.

I automatically thought Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, WA would be a great location for their engagement session.

It was definitely a beautiful time of year to get engagement pictures done. We were a little worried about the weather as the days prior to their session it was raining nonstop. Thankfully, God answered our prayers and gave us a beautifully brisk, sunny day and with the leaves around us turning that nice autumn orange and brown color. It was exactly what they wanted.

At the beginning of every session, I like to get my couples moving to help ease the nerves of being in front of the camera. Trust me, I know how it feels lol. We started off at one of the many walking trails that are at Point Defiance Park. Niza and Arvin were too cute for words from the beginning to the end of their session. They were always affectionately holding each other in some way with cute little kisses here and there. And let’s talk about that GORGEOUS ring that Arvin gave her! I mean, WOW. And I can’t forget to mention the beautiful makeup that was done by Cece at Makeup by Cece!

This whole Point Defiance Park engagement session was a dream. Niza and Arvin were amazing and fun to shoot with. I can totally tell that they were in love and sooo ready to take on this next step in their lives.

Thank you Niza and Arvin for sharing this special moment of your lives with me. I am truly grateful.

Vikki is an amazing photographer, she's really kind, she has a creative eye, she's patient, and on top of that she's really fun to be around. This girl puts her heart, time, and dedication and we're truly blessed to have her capture our engagement photos. If you're looking for a photographer, don't think twice on this one.

I just got our gallery and I'm surprised of the lovely photos we got that we just took in about an hour! What I love about Vikki is the number of options of photos that she made available for us! I liked that she knew what to do in such a short amount of time and was energetic and direct during our photoshoot which I believe helped my husband know what to do since he's not a big fan of getting photos taken LOL. Overall, we had fun and it was memorable! 

"It was fun & memorable!"

Vikki captured moments at our wedding reception. I don't even know where to start with my experience with her! I absolutely loved every moment working with her. My husband and I can't thank her enough for working with us when we had to adjust the timeline the day of our wedding reception. She made the moments enjoyable and truly captured real moments. She is amazing, fun, and patient! Her work is amazing. I would highly recommend her and would choose her again and again! Thank you so much!

My fiance Jeffrey and I won an engagement session with Vikki and didn't know what to expect. We've never had a photoshoot before and we are so awkward haha. But somehow Vikki made us feel natural and comfortable with each other in front of the camera, and the hour went by super quick. She really tries to get to know you as a couple and reflect it through her photos. The pictures turned out amazing, and we knew we had to book her for our big day! We got so many compliments from our friends and family on our engagement photos. Can't wait to work with her again for our wedding!

"We knew we had to book her for our day!"
