About 4 years ago, I met Brandon in Chicago on a bachelor party of our mutual Gabe Aceves. I knew instantly that we were going to be good friends. We spent several days galavanting around Chicago reliving stories of our past. I got to know that Brandon is about as eclectic as they come. He knows a ton about a lot, he loves people and a good drink. On the day before I left Chicago, Brandon had proclaimed that I was going to be his wedding photographer. He wasn't engaged yet.
Last year, I randomly received a text message from Brandon "Bro, you still down to photograph my wedding?", of course I was. I flew out to Portland, met up my friend Ryan and we took the 2 hour trip down to Manzanita. Manzanita is very close to Cannon Beach which is honestly one of the most humbling views that one can witness.
The entire weekend was spent underneath grey skies with only about an hour of sunlight. Naturally, the only time it rained was during the ceremony. Despite the rain and the cold, the celebration would go on.
