Tacoma, Seattle, Washington Wedding Photographer - Unique Moments Photography
About Us


Karen Mike Unique Moments Photography 2 Thank you so much for considering Unique Moments Photography for your wedding day photography needs. I am Karen Willett and I own and operate the business.

Couples that seek our style of photography desire wedding images that are artistic in style and images that are realsitic to the lighting that occurred on their wedding day. We use professional lighting, as well as natural lighting, to get clients realistic/best results for their wedding photos. We Do Not capture images that are washed out and desaturated (the over exposed style) for wedding pictures needs. Colors and exposures are true for the day, sky's are supposed to be blue, and we do not overly enhance or manipulate photos in photoshop to get acceptable results.

Please view our portfolio. What you see is what you can expect to get for your wedding day picture results. All of the images on our website are from real weddings. We Do Not display any images that are created from styled sessions which are captured under controlled lighting situations. This practice is not reflective as to what happens at real weddings.

We are an award winning photography business and we have over 100 positive, non solicited reviews, from our actual clients. We have been in business since 2007 and have and captured over 550 weddings. My Husband, Michael, is my lead photographer and he is an expert with lighting for weddings and for studio fine art portrait needs. He actually trains other photographers how to see and use lighting in their workflow for weddings and for studio needs.

We capture formal images as well as candid images through out the entire wedding day. Our story telling style of photography ( Photo journalistic ) lets clients reflect back on exactly what happened on their wedding day. Turn around time for clients wedding images in less than 10 days. We often return over 1000 pictures to our clients. All images captured, that are in focus and can be printed, are returned to our clients. And, we always spend private time with our couples, on their wedding day, to capture impact artistic images during sunset lighting conditions. These images are often used for wall prints and to close wedding albums.

We provide a Non Stress approach for the weddings we capture. After 500+ weddings, we have seen all the pitfalls that create problems for families at their wedding events. We help our clients set the wedding day timelines so they know exactly when and where they need to be to get optimal results. This reduces potential problems that can occur at weddings for photography needs. We connect with our clients and make sure we are capturing their wedding day as they have envisioned. We only want the best results for the families that retain our services and we want them to relax and have fun.

We operate our 900 Sq Ft commercial studio in Gig Harbor Washington. We now provide Boudoir photography services for our brides who want that special intimate gift to their future partners. We also offer maternity Portraits, Newborn and Infant photography services, and of course Family photography for our clients growing families. Its been an exciting ride and we feel so blessed to be on this journey with our new families and friends.
