D. Loates Fine Art

Tacoma & Seattle, WA


First and foremost, Doug Loates is an artist.  He is known principally for his painting and drawing but his photography is rapidly gaining recognition.  He brings the same artist’s eye and sensibility to his photographic process.  from your very first meeting with him, you are going to a totally different place than you would with other photographers.  So how does that look?

Doug is a full-time artist and photographer.  Let’s get that out there right away.  He does Wedding Photography because he LOVES doing Wedding Photography.  (He books only two weddings a month so he can give you the attention that you deserve - to make sure your Wedding gets the photographic coverage that will blow your socks off!)  He takes Wedding Photography to a whole new level.  And it’s catching on…..
