Irene and Garrett's Wedding by Rhys Logan

Catching up on tons of wedding posts from the last couple seasons has really been a trip. Reliving so many great experiences with so many great people from right near home in the northwest, all the way out to the east coast, it has reminded me how lucky I am to call this my work and how every wedding story and experience, are unique.   Irene and Garret's was no exception.  One of the most relaxed wedding day's I've had, Irene and Garrett were amazing to work with, and things flowed impressively seamless. Getting to gasworks, navigating Seattle streets, finding some really nice warm August sun and ultimately finishing things up at 415 Westlake, this Seattle wedding was one rewarded with good summer vibes and a killer sunset in the city.

hopefully will be making many more posts soon, 

as always, thanks for looking,

Irene and Garrett by Rhys Logan

Shooting in the Northwest always offers its own set of challenges.  I truly know and believe, that this really has only fostered a special type of attitude for people who hail from the good ole PNW, or have come to love it.  

That attitude is one of, 'if you're not going to buck up and do it in the rain, you won't end up doing much here ever.'  Nothing ever rang truer for Irene and Garret's engagement shoot at Discovery Park in Seattle this spring.  Absolutely soaked to the bone, we adventured our way through the most beautiful greenery, soggiest  forest floor the windiest northwest beach and finally all the way to the awesome urban scapes of Ballard.  I couldn't be luckier to work with two people filled with more joy and energy than these two and can not wait to be part of their very special day coming up in August.  

Here's to life and the rain, and here's to life in the rain, it only gives you the chance to show your true self.

Maggie and Jerry by Rhys Logan

Maggie and Jerry's wedding was one of the most fun, and most Polish weddings I've ever attended.  With the ceremony in Tacoma and reception in Seattle at the Polish Home, the weather was beautiful and I learned quickly that Polish people really know how to party.  It was a blast to see them and their friends gather together to celebrate their marriage and one that made my summer such a memorable one. Thanks Maggie and Jerry for being such awesome people!

Harry and Brie by Rhys Logan

Harry and Brie's wedding, was as unique as they come. 

Fitting for a couple unique as they come, in a city unlike any other.  Running around Seattle to some of the most familiar places, allowed me to see those places with completely new eyes, something I absolutely love about shooting.  Throw one of the most raucous dance parties in recent centuries, the colorful and beautiful heritage of Indian customs and their wedding was one very unforgettable experience for me.

First Ever Vlogger Fair, Seattle 2013 by Rhys Logan

The first ever Vlogger Fair was held this weekend at the Port of Seattle Terminal 5 and what a crazy event, thousands of people showed up to see Youtube celebrities, talk tech, interact with their favorite vloggers, and of course, vlog every second of the entire event themselves.  I found quite an interesting crowd assembled for what Chris Pirillo repeatedly described as 'not a conference!' but rather a gathering of the community that is Youtube.  Anyone from teenagers to start up tech companies, camera modifiers, makeup artists, and graphic artists showed up for what many hope will be a regular occurrence in the future; people on the internet actually interacting in real life.

Who knew!
