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! 

and thanks for looking,

Meghan and Josh were one of the quickest wedding turnarounds I've ever had, they knew what they wanted and what they were doing and bam! We met up, got things dialed and the wedding day was happening before we even knew what was!

Their love for each other and between them and their friends was apparent in the way they interacted and laughed the entire day.  I was totally blessed to be part of their wedding and was connected to them through Meghan's sister Alexandra, a Western friend whose engagement session will be posted here later as well!  Some rare fall sun in Olympia worked things out just perfectly too and it was great being part of their day,

thanks Meghan and Josh for letting me be a part of it!

Erin and John by Rhys Logan

So its time for some wedding catchup, and all this nice weather were having has got me dreaming of summer a bit anyways!

What happens when you get a pro dancer a gorgeous day at Lord Hill Farms and a dog in a tux? If you guessed an epic dance filled sunny wedding day party then you're correct.  Erin and John's wedding day was a fun in the sun attitude mixed with family and friends and planned to a tee. Complete with a drumline rumba band and the most epic bubble tunnel I've ever seen, it was a complete joy and honor to be included on their day.  Some west side summer weather and a great sunset didn't hurt either.

Thank you Erin and John for such a great time, 

and thank you for looking.

Rachel and Travis by Rhys Logan

It often takes returning somewhere, to refresh the memories of how important it is to us.  Seeing familiar places with completely new eyes is something I cherish deeply about shooting, and that place for me lately has been my hometown.  People have grown and changed and moved on in their own ways, but very deep down much is the same about the town of Waterville that I grew up in.  It was a deeply moving experience for me to shoot Rachel and Travis's wedding this late summer, and one that has made me come to appreciate being from rural America more and more everyday.

 I could not travel more than a few feet without seeing familiar faces asking about my life, experiences, travels, family, and other friends.  Faces of those I went through grade school with, played on high school sports teams with, faces of teachers and coaches and just the familiar characters that make up the fabric of a very close knit community.  

Held at the house she was raised in, Rachel and Travis's wedding was a huge reunion of all sorts, and its beautiful, historic and personal setting, really made many of these images extremely memorable for me.  Their ceremony was held in a nearly 100 year old church. 

Topped off with a roof raising performance for the reception music by none other than Rachel's sister Rebecca along with her father and members of the Foghorn Stringband, a ridiculously lively, dust kicking country dance went down til the wee hours. 

Thanks Rachel and Travis for such an amazing time and truly blessing me! 

and as always thanks for looking,
