 My name is Matthew Staerk and I'm a photographer currently residing in Tacoma, Washington.

I aim to give viewers a genuine, stark image.
I believe in simplicity — photographs that authentically capture the moment.
The unfiltered image in my photos allows viewers to experience a place as I have experienced it. I want them to see the place as I've seen it, not beneath added layers from fancy editing software. I capture the moods and textures of places, people and events in order to tell a story.I create composed, complete photographs to turn any occasion into a timeless memory.

Capturing the emotion of a moment is an amazing feeling, and I would like to do it for you! If interested in portrait sessions (Babies, family, bands, personal, senior/graduation, pets, etc.) or engagement/wedding photos, just send me an email or message! Also, all photos are available for purchase as prints! Just let me know which photo and what size!

Good Friend Events


 We adore events. We love details. We find peace in creating floral arrangements. We are in love with all things planning. Creating a plan for a wedding or event is what we find joy in. We believe each person deserves to have a good friend by their side who has their best interest in mind - someone who will take the stress of planning away and cater to your feelings. We are passionate about the system we've created and continue to build on it. For example, we started many years ago with solely wedding coordination. Coordinating grew into planning events which took off into full planning of weddings and events. In 2016 florals were added to our services in efforts to help save our clients money. We like to bundle packages to help our clients save. In fact, in most cases we've been able to help them save MORE then we cost.
