oceanside wedding

Kathryn and Garrett by Rhys Logan

If ever a more true northwest pair of people existed, you'd be hard pressed to find them.  Industrial designer and tug boat operator, Kathryn and Garrett styled their wedding beautifully, naturally and nautically. It only made sense that hopping to an island would have to be where it all went down in what I believe to be one of the most beautiful areas of our state, Orcas Island.

Complete with sailboat getaway, flotilla party, fresh shucked oysters and some sizzlin dance moves, I was honored to capture their wedding and even later that summer take their boat for one last spin out to Cypress Island and right in between two tall ships, which I will have to post later,

Here's to the ocean, our very own awesome archipelago and making ferries on time..

thanks for looking,

Shincho & Christina by Rhys Logan

As summer seems in no rush to show up this year, looking back at last year's wedding season has practically been necessity, just to believe it was all real.  Highlighted by so many close friends tying the knot, I couldn't have been more blessed to participate in such a personal way, on so many momentous occasions.  

Shincho and Christina's wedding was such an occasion and capturing the pure energy, excitement and party among countless friends and family, left me with some of my most cherished memories and some of my favorite work so far.

Between the hospitality of their family friend's amazing property on Samish Island, Christina's extended family's live band performing the reception (who even tours!) and partying with the group of people I have been lucky enough to call friends, naming it one for the ages still doesn't seem enough.  I can always tell when I'm having too good a time at a wedding.. because I over shoot it.

So  why not over post it too? 

To all of you who have encouraged me, been the subject of these visual journeys, allowed me to jump in the party right next to you and be witness to some of the most personal and rare moments, thank you. They have been some of the most personal and rare moments of my life as well.

and as always, thanks for looking,
