Thornewood Castle Wedding in Tacoma, Washington

These two beautiful people got married at Thornewood Castle in Tacoma, Washington and it was a beautiful and joyous day! Their love story when they met at a marijuana shop in Everett back in 2016.

Before Melina met Daniel he and the owner of the shop decided they should play a joke on her. Daniel walked in the store acting crazy, dress in baggy ripped clothes and asking weird questions. When Daniel walked in, I asked how I could help him and treated him like any other person. When the owner kept staring at her, smiling, as she helped this guy she felt like something was up. Daniel introduced himself to her and they all started laughing. From there their relationship grew. Please view their engagement photos by clicking here.

Tell Me About the “Spark”….whats your Love Story?

"I am absolutely obsessed with the photos she captured"

WOW… I do not know where to start! I did not know Lessie before our photoshoot but I am so glad to have met her and chosen her to capture our engagement pictures! She was so easy to communicate with and so so helpful from start to finish. I am absolutely obsessed with the photos she captured of my fiancé and I! Not only do the photos look beyond amazing but our experience with her throughout the photoshoot was out of this world! She is extremely talented and was amazing at capturing natural and real moments!

"Phenomenal is an understatement!"

Lessie is the most compassionate, easy to communicate with , professional photographer I have ever had the joy of working with. Lessie has a skill set the surpasses many others, her attention to detail, her willingness to try new things and her commitment to the highest quality photos and experience for all who have the honor of booking with her is unprecedented. Lessie has a soul that is so invested in producing authenticity that many photos seem to lack.

"We highly recommend Lessie. She is GREAT!!"

Lessie is an amazing photographer. We could not be happier with our wedding photos. I love that she included many unique shots that I wouldn't have thought of but that I really love. Also, along with the photos of my husband and me and photos of both sides of the bridal party, she captured many of the wonderful smaller moments and details that are hard to notice amidst the busy-ness of the wedding day. We loved seeing those smaller details and the candid photos of friends and family as well. They're all very special to us.
