Chan and Christine by Rhys Logan

You know you're overdue for a post when you have a hard time remembering the navigation of your own website...

That being said it has also been awhile since I've posted new work anywhere.. And unfortunately the old adage, 'better late than never,' has been a mantra echoed in my thoughts that has seemed to make an attempt at excusing all kinds of bad behavior photographically, or rather "postigraphically". After all, images are meant to be viewed.  It is this point that I have struggled with most.  Lost in the vast mire of images coming out of all facets of interweb entanglement, I seemed to have forgotten that my work and subsequent dissemination of that work has led me to some of the greatest adventures of my life, as well as some of the greatest people. 

On the topic of great people; the Stones have been some of my greatest friends in Bellingham, and luckily for all of us, one my favorite thing to do is take photos of my friends.  I've lived with Chan and Christine nearly two years and it has been a transition in my life from many things, and I could not be more thankful to have been blessed with such good (and tolerant) friends who put up with my gear, junk, hours and general idiocy. 

This particular mission took us to an adventuresome land in search of a ripe pseudotsuga menziesii to practice our early European heritage, interpreted from a possibly druid-esque hootenanny. But who knows.

Find one we did and get a couple photos we did as well. Thanks Chan and Christine for being such amazing people, for fishing trips and bearing with my photo taking and literally, putting a roof over my head.  

And thanks for looking,

Dave and Cheri by Rhys Logan

Set in the beautiful Mercer Island First Pres and on one of the most gorgeous Seattle days I've ever seen, kilts, bagpipes and a full on Scottish Kaelee dance for a reception, made Dave and Cheri's wedding an absolute blast, the fact that they are both awesome people might have helped a bit too, 

thanks for looking!

Carly and Peter by Rhys Logan

When I was asked later about the wedding I shot as a last minute fill in during June, I can honestly say nothing went right.  And yet, I can also say it was one of the most fun filled, shenanigan laced energetic events I've been lucky enough to be a part of.  Kicking off the day with the Father of the Bride rocking out dancing in the living room as I arrived at 10 am, I figured right off the bat that it would be a pretty good day.  With literally only two weeks to scout the venue, prep for the big day, and even be able to just meet Carly and Peter, I was to say a little more than apprehensive.  But even in beautiful Shoreline, Washington, despite sideways rain and a white tarp down to keep Carly's dress from the soaked lawn, smiles were undeniable and the celebration was on full throttle as we dashed around the yard, caravanned to the gorgeous Ballard First Lutheran Church, and then partied it up while gazing on the beautiful Seattle skyline aboard the MV Skansonia Ferry for the reception.  Great people, and such great times. 

Thanks for looking
