Often called “Tacoma’s best kept secret,” the Foss Waterway Seaport offers soon-to-be-wed couples with a beauty wedding venue that is equal parts rustic and romantic.
The rental fee is $3,800 for a ceremony and reception and includes full rental of entire property for 8 hours.
I found you on Wedding Spot and I would like to receive more information about having a wedding at your venue. We are creating a free account for you so we can remember these preferences when you need to contact another venue. So, let’s take a look at ten tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your landscape photos, even if your landscape is less than extraordinary. This may seem obvious… of course you want to find an interesting subject for your photograph. If you’re shooting in a busy city or exotic location, there are interesting subjects everywhere you look. But composing the shot from this position, and including these objects in the frame, has created a much more interesting photo of this landscape.
The rule of thirds is a basic composition rule that says you should keep your subject in either the right, left, top or bottom third of the frame.
To compose your shot using the rule of thirds, imagine two lines crossing your frame horizontally and two more crossing vertically. Turning on the grid in your camera settings is a great way to help you compose your photos using the rule of thirds. Of course, this “rule” is really just a guideline, and rules are made to be broken! This rule is almost the opposite of using the rule of thirds as it focuses your eye in the center of the frame. This technique works great for patterns, so if you see something that is repeated, such as a row of trees or stacks of hay bales, compose your shot so that your subjects are symmetrically lined up on either side of the frame. Water is a great place for creating vertical symmetry as it allows you to capture a reflection of the sky in the water at the bottom of the photo. For a slightly more natural composition, you could try off-setting the symmetry just a little bit, almost like using the rule of thirds.
In this example you can see that the photo has an element of symmetry, but it’s offset slightly by positioning the road more to the right of the frame. It’s always worth taking several shots from different viewpoints, centre and off-centre, so that you have a variety of images to choose from. Leading lines is another composition rule that states you should use naturally occurring lines, or things that look like lines, to lead the viewer’s eye towards the subject. This works really well with roads, rivers, fences, power lines, or natural rows of objects such as a row of trees. It usually works best if the line leads your eye from the front of the image towards the main subject, so try to position the line starting at the bottom of the frame or in one of the bottom corners. Including empty space, often referred to as negative space, can actually help to emphasize the main subject as there’s nothing else competing for attention. One way of using negative space is to create silhouettes, like I did here with the trees in the foreground. Another good way of using negative space is to include a lot of sky in your frame. Again, this can place more emphasis on the main subject in the image.
People are all generally about the same size, so if you see a person in the distance of a landscape photo, you can really tell just how vast that landscape is. And of course, including a person in your photo is a great way of adding an interesting subject and focal point to what might otherwise be a boring scene of just fields and sky. By including interesting objects in the foreground of your scene, you can show a landscape in the background while finding a subject to focus on in the foreground.
This is also a great way of creating a sense of depth in your landscape photos as it draws the viewer’s eye from the front to the back of the image.


Here, I focus on the sign on the fence, but show the glaring background as well in an almost bokeh, or shallow depth of field, effect. Common objects to use as foreground interest in landscape photography include rocks, pebbles, flowers and grass. Shooting from low down is a great way of including foreground interest in your shot, as well as eliminating distracting backgrounds as it allows you to include more sky.
Here, I get up close and personal with a plant to emphasize the unique texture it brings to the scene.
If you get really close to your subject, eliminating all background distractions, you can also create some amazing and unique abstract images, adding an artistic element to your photo album. Overcast days, or shooting when the sun is low in the sky (sunrise and sunset) often produces the best results in landscape photography.
In this photo, I use light in an interesting way by having the sun in front of me and peaking around a boulder. Always think about where the sun is, and then choose your shooting angle carefully to compose your shot with the sun in the best position for the effect you want to achieve. As you can see from the photo examples in this article, iPhone landscape photography doesn’t have to take place in exotic locations. You can take incredible landscape photos where you are right now, simply by following these composition techniques. Idea for a maritime wedding with an industrial edge, this lovely event space offers multiple spaces to say your “I do’s” or celebrate your union! This creates more dynamic energy in your photograph than if you were to position the subject directly in the center of the frame. To turn the grid on, open the Settings app on your iPhone, tap Photos and Camera, then switch on the Grid option. Using symmetry involves creating an images that is similar on both sides of the frame, and it can create a very strong composition that instantly catches the viewer’s eye. The above image is horizontally symmetrical since the left and right sides of the photo are almost a mirror image of each other.
In this case, the subject is the wind turbine. Leading lines can be straight, curved, S-shaped, converging, etc. If you’re shooting somewhere that is fairly sparse with very little going on, use that to your advantage to create interesting minimalist photos. This means the background becomes somewhat blurry while the subject in the foreground is sharp.
When you shoot from low down or high up, you’re sharing a perspective that looks and feels more unique, dynamic and exciting.
I often find that you can get more detail in texture images, without as much noticeable grain, by converting your photo to black and white.
However, shooting in harsh sunlight can create some interesting effects when you get it right. We were so motivated to get far far away from ice cold Missouri that we hit the ground running before dawn. Coming out of Salt Lake City is beautiful, but once we hit the Idaho border, things got really intense.
We set out to take the major interstate from the border to the Washington coast, however avalanche warnings caused a few road closures, blocking our direct route on 90 as well as the usual detour route.
It may not be glamorous, but it certainly isn’t impossible to make a cross country road trip in the winter. Access your wedding by boat at the dock, allowing you to make a grand entrance that your guests won’t soon forget. In this tutorial you’ll discover ten great composition techniques to help you take stunning landscape photos with your iPhone, no matter where in the world you are.
It’s all down to how you compose the shot, the angle that you shoot from and what you include in your frame.
But “interesting” may have to take on a different role when you’re in the middle of nowhere.


But if you’re in a bleak landscape with no obvious outstanding features, you may struggle to find anything interesting to photograph at all.
That’s why you should always try to display the size by using something, or someone, as a ruler. You may be surprised to find how different things can look up close when you see the nitty-gritty details. Making a cross country road trip in the middle of the winter may not be everyone’s first choice, but as wedding photographers- its the time we have off. Josh and I made a couple roadside stops in Wyoming to admire the running horses and snow capped mountains. This wasn’t even on our radar, so we pulled over and talked to some people at the nearest gas station. Exchange your vows on the outdoor Esplanade, a gorgeous space that spans the length of Balfour Dock and provides stunning views of Commencement Bay, the Working Waterway, and Mount Rainier. Though we had an engagement session in the Cascade mountains planned with Kim + Kevin, we don’t have any major obligations until March on the East Coast. We really wish we had time to swing by the Tetons, but are hoping to spend some time based in Jackson Hole in the future (Tetons wedding, anyone?).
We ended up taking a local’s advice and hopped on White Pass for a beautiful winding trip through the Cascades.
Convenience to the nearby Thea Foss Park and beach provides additional opportunities for wedding photos. We camped out in Lake Lure for a couple nights before our trip to shoot a wedding at the Esmeralda.
We may be able to get something stronger if we plan to say in such freezing temps again, but I don’t think we’ll be seeking that out. We saw the semis in front of us swaying over the lane lines with each gust, but there is no where to pull over for long stretches of time, so we just had to white knuckle through it. Hold a jubilant reception in the historic Balfour Dock building, a dramatic structure featuring intricate bridge truss-style ceilings that soar to accommodate a wide window wall that welcomes in natural light. We drove all the way to Denver this day and were rewarded with an epic sunset along the way in Kansas. Add in all the crazy warning signs: “ severe storm area”, “occasional blinding dust storms”, “game crossing”, “high winds” and you realize that Idaho is a little scary. Once we got close to Seattle, we stopped at an REI to stock up on some necessities (like a new raincoat for me!) and finally made it to our campground after dark. As you dine, enjoy panoramic views of the waterway and the Tacoma city skyline as it sparkles in the night. Still scarred from our night in Missouri, we reserved a campground with a hot tub in Salt Lake City that night. We can’t believe we did it and are really looking forward to all the exploring we will be doing here on the west coast!
At this point, we were getting a little tired of driving so we just kept at it until we made it to a rest stop off the Washington border and took a nap in the camper. At the end of the night, went into our camper and everything was frozen, but we were just too tired at that point to do anything but cover ourselves in a pile of blankets, crank the heater, and sleep (aka huddle for warmth). I didn’t take any pictures this day because I was just so focused on driving and helping navigate Josh.
