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.

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 […]

Seven years as a Seattle area wedding and portrait photographer and I can’t believe this was my first time ever at Golden Gardens! I recognized areas from other photographers photos but this was my first time shooting here. Then, I found out less than two weeks later that I will be photographing a wedding at […]

In honor of Diwali yesterday I thought I’d hop back to 2020 to share this Airbnb Indian American Zoom wedding. Meeka and Ryan rented a beautiful Airbnb in Bainbridge, Washington to host a small 2020 wedding with their closest family and just a few friends. Both being pediatricians, they were very cautious. Right before Meeka’s […]

The last few days, I’ve been blogging based off of votes from a poll posted on my Instagram account. When more bride tips were requested I had every one vote between Time Management, Ceremony tips, Reception tips, or post wedding recovery and processing. Wedding Day Time Management was the most popular request by far. Whereas […]
