Another photography studio comes to Washington with the debut of Sunset Photography.
With a grand opening scheduled for Friday at 4 p.m., owner and photographer Mauricio Tijerina said he hopes the new studio will help him expand creatively and financially.
Tijerina and his wife Veronica have owned and operated the studio-free business since July 2021.
Mauricio and Veronica Tijerina both work full-time as supply chain professionals who, after promotion in 2016, moved from Monterrey, Mexico to the Sporlan division of Parker Hannifin in Washington.
The new Sunset Photography studio is located at 830 W. Fifth St. at the corner of High Street in what was once the Washington Tattoo Collective, which is owned by Larry Proemsey, of Labadie, according to Franklin County Assessor Records.
Tijerina said the nearly 1,000 square foot space didn’t need much renovation other than adding amenities and fixtures.
Tijerina’s studio expansion comes after the Washington Area Chamber of Commerce hired him to photograph the 2021 Washington Town and Country Fair.
Sunset enters a crowded market. The Chamber of Commerce’s online directory lists three other photography studios in the Washington area and several more exist independently.
