To the best year of my life...so far.

The best decision I have ever made was you.
 
It was in finally choosing you that I realized how amazing life could be.
You gave me the courage to change my life, to make it better not just because you are in it,
but because it was something worth changing.

I dont know if I ever thanked you for that.
I dont know if you ever realized how grateful I am that you are here with me,
that I get to keep choosing you every day and never regret a single moment.

Thank you for Hook.
Thank you for Mia.
Thank you for providing a roof over our heads and a warm place to call home.
Thank you for loving me unconditionally (I know this is a hard one).
Thank you for accepting my faults.
For pushing me in all the right ways, but never when it gets to be too much.
Thank you for all the days I wake up smiling.

You, my heart, is what keeps me together when everything seems to fall.
You are my proudest moments, my best dreams, my happy thoughts.
You, my handsome mess of a man, are my everything.

Thank you for the best 1st year two people could have.
I can't wait for the million more to come.

All my love.
-Breanne.

Boy do I love me some Greek weddings!

And THAT is how you end a wedding.



**These two people have meant so much to me in the three years I have known them. Jess has become one of the greatest friends I have ever had, and this is part of the reason why I love this business. 
I am not sure where I would be without you two in my life and I thank God every day because of that. You have supported and believed in me far more than I deserve.
It's I who am the lucky one.
Thank God for Craigslist ;)

I've been lazy...time to fix that

It has been an isanely long time since I have written. 
I want to tell you that it is because I have been so busy and had no way to find the time but that would just not be true. 
Who cant find the time, even if it's only 10 minutes to sit down and type?

I think it has been because I have been unmotivated. 
I moved to Florida and got settled in my full-time position that I have neglected my passion and love for photography.
So I have decided to change...today.

From now on I am going to write a post at least once a week until I find my stride.
Today will be a day of the adventure...the catch-up to show you where I have been this past year.
But from here on out I will go back and post everything you have missed until we get to where we are now.
Believe me...you've missed a lot of Life and Beauty happening.

So what have I been up to?
Well....
I decided to move to Fort Lauderdale.
This is where I have been for one year and this is where Marc and I have started a new beginning.

In short,
we got an apartment,
I got a good job working in the creative field (screw the people who told me you can't make a career from an Art degree), 
 we got a puppy (who coincidentally will also be one year old this month),
we got a car...
we got ENGAGED.
Yup....8 years in the making and we took the next step.

So all in all you can see it's been a crazy year
But I have also been flying back to Pittsburgh to photograph weddings and any one else who will let me.
I have met some beautifiul couples and documented some beautiful beginnings.
I'll introduce you to them all soon.
I have been lucky.
Beyond lucky.
In fact, lucky doesn't even come close to it.

Let me give you a little glimpse.......

ADRIENNE

There are some people who stay with you your whole life, they some how don't escape through the cracks of change and the passing of time and growing older. They remain, ever present, in all forms throughout every stage of life. And even in those days and months and years of possible silence you still know they are there, waiting for your call when you need them most and they will always be there. This is my A, Adrienne, Adrienne Jill, in whatever name I call her she answers most always with a smile on her face. Adrienne has been one of the longest friendships I have been lucky enough to have; there aren't many people in this world that touch as many souls as Adrienne has and because of this I am proud to be her friend. She has this way about her, this way that makes life happier, the air a little lighter and this sense of hope that exudes from her very core. She is a captivating human being for the fact that she gives more of herself to others than almost any other person I have met through my time on Earth. She left for the Peace Corp. a few weeks ago and before she left she spoke to me about her fears as well as the overwhelming amount of Love she had received in her last few days in Pennsylvania. Its just Adrienne. Worrying about how many people Love her and how she doesnt know how to give back to them in the same depth. But the truth is, just by being in this life she has given more to them than she knows. And that is always enough. There is a book that I gave her that I hope she cherishes as much as I do, in it, the author speaks in part of the main character and of his life. He speaks a passage that in every way, shape, or form envelopes Adrienne:

“make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.” 
― Jon KrakauerInto the Wild

So A, let me say this, your life is a beautiful one, filled with hope and adventure and life and love and humility. You are worth more than you know. You are beautiful. You are someone I am proud to have known for over half of my life. So go my friend, do amazing things, touch new lives, and find the beauty in the simplicity. I love you dear friend.
