Fircrest Golf Club

Aug

28

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.

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

Eighteen Months Nomadic

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
