Every two months I get to see my girlfriend Hanna. Since last time she wasn't able to meet my good friend Shannon Gallagher, we made that happen this time around. Shannon is a beach bum, plain and simple so we just naturally agreed on shooting in Long Beach Island. It was a stormy day and we made jokes that Hanna had brought the PNW weather with her but it made for such amazing light. While shooting, we even saw some dolphins jump out of the water. By the time we said goodbye, our clothes were soaked but our smiles couldn't have been any larger.
