Hello there! We are Scott and Laura Schoeggl, and we’re Tacoma and Seattle wedding photographers. Here at Wallflower Photography, we specialize in wedding photography, and we work our tails off, wedding after wedding, to be the very best at photographing them.

Best in Washington State

In the past three years, we're proud to have been named Best Wedding Photographers in Washington State by national wedding website mywedding.com three times, and to earn a #1 ranking in Washington State by dominating in competitions held by the Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA). Last year, we submitted one of the only candid wedding photos to be selected into the Loan Collection of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA).

The Wallflower Way of Photographing Weddings:
Blending Wedding Photojournalism and Portraiture

Our approach to wedding photography can best be described as having a rock-solid foundation of documentary-style wedding photojournalism, enhanced by portraiture that is a blend of creative and classic, modern and timeless. We are great at capturing artistic photos of the many details of the wedding day, and of letting the environment in which the wedding took place give life and color to our images. Wedding photography is a tremendously complex subject and we get into greater depth on some of the other pages on this website.

Beautiful Wedding Albums, Wall Art and More

We are also all about creating a lasting, meaningful way for our clients to enjoy and treasure their wedding photos for all the years of their lives and beyond. Most of our clients get one of our beautiful, custom-designed wedding albums, which we get from top album companies including Pictobooks and GraphiStudio. We also offer a huge variety of wall art and tabletop art options, including standard photographic prints, stretched canvases, aluminum prints in different shapes and formats, and wood prints.

Professional, Experienced Wedding Photographers

We’ve been photographing weddings in the Seattle/Tacoma area for over 13 years, with over 300 weddings under our belt in that time. Those weddings took place at over 100 different venues, including churches, gardens, museums, zoos and aquariums, private residences and public parks. We use excellent camera gear, are advanced in the use of today’s best radio-controlled lighting, and have the knowledge and experience needed to get sharp, well-exposed photos in every possible situation.

Experts in Weddings at Tacoma's Top Wedding Venues

We serve the entire Puget Sound region, including Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, Lacey, Everett, Mukilteo, Bellevue, Kirkland, Woodinville, Auburn, Puyallup, Lakewood, University Place, Bremerton, Port Orchard and Ruston. Since we're based in Tacoma, we know South Sound wedding venues best of all, and operate a website called Tacoma’s Top Wedding Venues to show off our work at our favorite hometown-area venues:
