On August 9th, photographers from Seattle traveled south to Portland to meet up.  The idea behind the cross-city trip was to connect with people who we’ve been interacting with on Instagram and other social platforms.

Instagramers Seattle and Instagramers Portland represent two major cities of the Pacific Northwest and are within a three hour drive so naturally, we thought this was a cool thing to do!

Paul and Morgan were awesome hosts and greeted us with huge smiles. They organized a scavenger hunt gifting away prizes from sponsors, Portland Art MuseumBoys Fort and Archie’s Press (check out pics here).

We talked with the PDX photographers, went to the pub, drove to the St. John’s Bridge (what a sight!), did a little shopping and went home – our day was complete!

Now we wait for our PDX friends to come to SEA : )

What do you LOVE about #SocialPhotography?

Bridgette, Michaela, Paul, and Morgan tell us why they love it.  Tell us why you love social photography with the #grryo_love tag on Instagram or Twitter.

We look forward to hearing about your story!
