Tacoma wedding Photographer Pagoda Garden Defiance

Unique Moments Photography of Gig Harbor Washington captured this couple at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma Wa.  The 702-acre  park includes Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, the Rose Garden, Rhododendron Garden, beaches, trails, aboardwalk, a boathouse, a Washington State Ferries ferry dock for the Point Defiance-Tahlequah route to Vashon IslandFort Nisqually, an off-leash dog park, and most notably a stand of old-growth forest. More than three million people visit it every year. Point Defiance Park is maintained and operated by the Metropolitan Park District of Tacoma.


This image was captured in the Point Defiance Pagoda garden area. The irea is ideal for portraits with plenty of open shade and nice colors. The cherry trees were in full bloom for this session so we obviously took advantage of Washington's Cherry blossom season.


The pagoda is surrounded by a Japanese garden featuring pools, a waterfall, a footbridge, sakura cherry trees, and an authentic Shinto shrine and Tori Gate presented by Tacoma’s Sister City in Kitakyushu Japan, the Pagoda serves as a venue for garden shows, classes and community celebrations. Through a special partnership with Tacoma's Sister City, Kitakyushu, this garden will receive an updated design plan reflective of Japanese landscaping traditions and steeped in cultural heritage. The planning and fundraising for this project began in 2012.

This rare historic site is also available for rental as a scenic setting for weddings, family gatherings and corporate events.

We love point defiance park as it offers a ton of areas to take our clients in which are private and they have nice backgrounds for any type of portrait work imaginable.

This couple was super fun to photograph. We always want to get our couples in front of a camera before the wedding day arrives. Justin, our Groom, was great and willing to try fun stuff. We were super happy with the photo results and are really looking forward to seeing this young lady in her wedding dress. The wedding is going to be awesome.
