Ballard Annex Oyster House



Right before Christmas I received a message from SJP Preferred Vendor DJ Midnight Mike/ Michael Dwyer. He became a partner/manager with the Ballard Annex Oyster House. He would be hosting a Christmas Work Party in their beautiful upstairs intimate venue and was looking for some photos of what they have to offer as a venue.

I was so excited to work in a low light venue and photograph delicious modern details.

The Ballard Annex Oyster House is an open to the public restaurant and bar on ground level. Through the back and up a private staircase leads to a tucked away event room. If you’re looking for an intimate evening event venue (about 80 people or less) with amazing in house catering, this may be your perfect location.

This venue sits on a downtown Ballard street surrounded by so many other shops and bars that would make for a fun after party walk on the town. When the party was over, I wished I had more time to explore the area! During the holidays, the entire strip is lit up and incredibly festive.

I can not rave about The Ballard Annex Oyster House food enough! It was some of the most delicious catering I’ve ever had. I love the way they have a raised buffet area that makes traffic simple and easy to understand while giving the caterers a designated area set apart from guests to prepare.

I google myself once in a while. Not always a great idea as you spend more and more time working with thousands of people over the years but I thought I’d give it a go today. I was pleasantly surprised to find my name included under Tacoma Top 10 Wedding Photographers. I was scrolling through […]

Sarah and Michael’s family hosted a cozy, close friends and family, Private Estate Wedding in Ronald, Washington! When I arrived, it had begun to rain. Luckily, the family was prepared with a covered event tent just in case. The rain hung around through the ceremony (with a little thunder, too!) and couple’s photos. Then, cleared […]
