I’m pretty sure my brain has permanently linked thoughts of Brian and Marine with the idea of adventure. InIt started in college, when my roomate and I were studying abroad in Peru and able to meet up with Brian and his friends while they traveled there. Of course, Brian and Marine’s story sounds like a movie script: they met on a train on the way to Paris. Yep. Traveling across the country, each for their own reasons and purposes, and they ended up sitting next to each other. All it took was a little bit of wing-manning to make it work, and before they knew it they were dating long distance.
As their relationships grew these two experienced life together not only in Europe but in Australia as well, and when they finally tied the knot in a historic church by the sea in Normandy, they had me along. We adventured around the coast and the Cliffs of Etretat for a day after session,and when they came to San Diego (Brian’s hometown) to celebrate with their American friends and family, we did it again: a ceremony at Sunset Cliffs and an anniversary session of sorts in the Anza Borrego desert. These two. I can’t wait to see what adventures they go on next (you know, after they are done with their newest phase of living in Spain and visiting Portugal and the Mallorcas). Hopefully I’ll get to join them on some!
