Firstlight Photography Invited to the Tacoma Afifi Shrine Event Center Tasting with Papa Eddie’s Catering

Kier and Mitzi like to go to a variety of wedding shows to meet new vendors and reconnect with the many vendors we have had the pleasure of working with. 
When we are  doing a wedding we are constantly on the go.  We work side by side with the vendors that are also working at the wedding.  So, as photographers we get to admire what the florist delivers, hear bands or listen to what DJ’s have to say, and of course we get to taste a wide variety of food.

Papa Eddie's Spread

Last weekend we were invited to a tasting at the Afifi Shrine and Event Center in Tacoma which also happens to be the headquarters of Papa Eddie’s Catering.  The concept was simple – they invited clients and vendors to a tasting.  They played good music and as we sat at our tables it was like being at a wedding and actually having a chance to sit, enjoy the food and chat with friends!    
We’re very pleased to hear that they want to make this a monthly event.  We aren’t about to turn down a catered lunch tasting with these guys but more importantly it is really inspiring to sit down with fellow wedding vendors and colleagues.  We walked away getting to know a few additional vendors and we were able to learn a few new tips.
Thanks Papa Eddie’s!  (PS – we loved the asparagus and phyllo appetizers)

About Firstlight Photography

Kier is from Orange County and Mitzi is from just outside Chicago. We both moved to Seattle in June of 1995- but it took until 2006 for us to actually meet. We saw the same concerts and we both had the same Capitol Hill sushi haunt but it took over 10 years for our paths to finally cross. When they did we had no idea that our careers would collide into a fabulous partnership. We share a common love of music and photography. Kier caught the photo bug years ago and Mitzi always had a love of art and a mind for business. When we aren’t out on a photo shoot you can find us roller skating with our kids, hosting Martha Stewart eat your heart out dinners (Kier is the chef & Mitzi is the baker), watching movies -we share a love of “Strange Brew” (which should be slightly embarrassing, but we own it), or doing DIY projects with our insanely crafty kiddos. We are located between Seattle and Tacoma any frequently travel throughout Washington, Oregon and California. You can book us for your destination wedding or event and we will give you a reasonable travel quote (our passports are ready). Life is good and we work hard to convey this in our work. There is nothing more rewarding that receiving a note from a client’s mother thanking us for doing a great job on her daughter’s wedding photos. Call us and we will do a phone consultation or meet over coffee to talk about your photography needs, answer questions and, if we are a good fit, we can devise a variety of package options.
