Fircrest Golf Club



Amanda and Brian’s Fircrest Golf Club wedding took place on May 29, 2021. I just had to look that up and my gosh it does not feel like that long ago.

We started the day at Amanda’s aunts house for getting ready photos. From there, we had a beautiful Catholic wedding ceremony at St. Patrick’s Church in Tacoma, Washington. It was my second Catholic wedding ceremony at this chapel and WOW! I will jump at the chance to document a wedding at this chapel any day. I love the classic traditional feel of this gorgeous building. Whereas I love my profoto Speedlight’s, the opportunity and challenge to document a wedding ceremony with no flash in an old chapel is just fun. Especially with the use of their balcony.

After the ceremony, we party bussed to Point Defiance Park for couples & bridal party photos. From there, it was straight to Fircrest Golf Club for the massive party they had all been waiting for!

Dancing was so fun and the perfect conditions for “dragging the shutter”. Take a look at the reception photos to see what I’m talking about. It’s a really fun technique to portray motion but it only works when there is a lot of it. This crew loved to dance!

Congratulations, Amanda & Brian! Clynn and I loved documenting your big day.

Wedding Season 2021 has been an odd one. It’s been “busy” in a way I can’t describe. It’s been…discovering the strength of The Studio independent from marketing efforts due to six years of PUSHING every day. I’ve been figuring out nomadic life and preparing it for our second winter on the road. I’ve been focusing […]

Robyn & Justin’s Kerry Park Engagement Photos were a creative take on a classic Seattle location. I think this was the first time The Studio photographed engagement photos at Kerry Park where Clynn came to document side angles. Having his input around opened up space for me to view the park with fresh eyes. Robyn […]

One thing I really enjoyed about photographing the monthly flavors was predicting which set would be the most fun to stage and document. Then, being surprised when it […]
