Brandon has a kindness and charisma that makes you want to be friends. Maybe it's because he's Canadian, or maybe it's because he's downright awesome, I'm not sure, but either way I'm glad we're friends. 

Since Brandon coached rowing for his graduate assistantship at Washington State University, we decided to take his graduation photos on the Snake River where the team practices and holds regattas. 

I've only been to one regatta, and it's only because I know Brandon that I went. It's so neat to meet new people and experience things they're passionate about.

I LOVED doing Brandon's photos. He's got a rugged, outdoorsy vibe that meshes perfectly with the Snake River landscape. It was like doing a styled-shoot, minus the actual styling. 

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them! 

(PS: Stay tuned for a follow up post featuring photos of Brandon and his lovely girlfriend Lauren!)
