The internet has been a flurry of ‘gratitude’ lately…there are posts/blogs/tweets detailing what we are or should be grateful for.  And as tomorrow, a day to give thanks, is finally on our doorstep, I am feeling grateful as well.

I was very lucky to  have the opportunity to photograph a very special wedding a few weeks ago…my step-brother and his beautiful bride…and it has reminded me of many things for which I am grateful…

I am grateful that this day in early November was crystal clear, with blue skies and warm air…early November weather is a crap-shoot, and we could not have been luckier.

I am grateful that we had this day of love and inspiration, because the following few weeks would prove to be some of the most difficult of my life (I live in State College, remember?).

I am grateful that he found her…she has brought so much love to our family.

I am grateful that she found him…seeing true love, happiness and fulfillment is a gift to all those who surround them.

I am grateful that I was able to experience and photograph a Jewish wedding ceremony…the first of my life…it was one of such tenderness and love.

I am grateful that I don’t photograph weddings regularly…this was EXHAUSTING.

I am grateful that I was able to share my gift with them…at the end of the day, this is what fills my soul.
