Petersen Pictures Tacoma Wedding Photographer
We are Carl and Randee, a husband and wife team who love weddings. Even more, we love photographing them. It’s incredible to experience different cultures, religions, and traditions in such a personal setting of great significance. We get the privilege of photographing not only one of the most important days of a couple’s life, but we are honored by actually going on this journey with them usually with an engagement shoot, rehearsal dinner, or bridal session before the wedding. And after the wedding we are thrilled when clients come back to us to document the growth of their family as children enter their life.
Before Carl started Petersen Pictures he was a published artist and filmmaker. There’s a cinematic quality that incorporates movement to many of their images because he has a background in directing and producing. Before he went out on his own, he trained with some of the top photographers in the country while living in Los Angeles. He has applied the best techniques and would characterize them as Artistic Lifestyle. “I see myself as an artist and my number one goal is to create artwork for you.” - Carl
One of my favorite shoots this year was Hala & Hayden’s wedding at Annie Wright in Tacoma, WA. We also photographed their engagement and rehearsal dinner before their big day, and we just really liked being in this couple’s company.
The day started at Hala and Hayden’s condo downtown on the waterfront. Beauty was by Natalie Bradley, Tatiana Baxter, and Mikela Kiely from Londons. Everyone looked fantastic!
Hala’s wedding dress was absolutely stunning. The bride wore a Lazaro gown that was purchased from Marcella’s La Boutique in Seattle.
All the decor and florals were done by Jordan Moll and Jordan Moll Events who always make everything look exceptionally beautiful.
The wedding ceremony and reception were at Annie Wright Schools where Hala grew up attending primary school. Annie Wright’s campus is gorgeous and I can see why they chose it as the location for their wedding. The ceremony was in the charming Raynor chapel.
The reception was held in the courtyard and the dinner was provided by Gallucci’s exceptional catering. They do a fantastic job and have a wonderful presentation.
It's always fun to jump in the photo booth when the bride and groom do! Here they are having fun with Pixi Box!
It was such an incredible night with warm hearts all around! We wish this happy couple a big congratulations and many blissful years ahead!
