Personal // Looking back on 2012

As I sit alone in my quiet little apartment and write this, I’ve been thinking about all of the things that have happened to me this year.  In an earlier post, I stated, “Personal work for me is for looking back on times that have past. It’s a way to always remember feelings you had, people you knew, places you travelled to and experiences you had. Remembering people and the times you had is one of the most important reasons that I love what I do. Whether it’s for myself or other people, capturing memories is a passion.” I was partially right. It’s not just personal work that makes you remember experiences; everything I shoot makes me relive those moments. I found myself lost in film scans this evening and never realized how much time I spent just looking through them all spread out on my floor until I went to grab food. Memories, spread out on my floor, made for a good night.

I graduated college two days ago and I don’t think it has really hit me yet. My actual life is about to start. As much as I changed in 2012, I anticipate the same thing will happen in 2013.  Always changing for the better. I’ve got a long road ahead of me and as I start to map out next year, I get more and more excited even with as difficult as it looks to be. I’ll keep my wits about me and make the best of everything this year has to offer me.

I wish I could call the following set of images a “carefully chosen and curated batch of photos” but I can’t. I chose each image based on what I felt when I took it. Each image has meaning to me for some reason or another. Typically, I detest long blog posts but this required something different. These photographs, I love them. I love what I do.

The last image was taken by my good friend Andy over at .

- What a beautiful year :)

James Evins - Great post, Brennan. You’ve come a long way. Looking forward to seeing where you go with it in the future.

Engagement // Rob + Kara Teaser

One of the highest honors you can have when you do what I do is being apart of your friends special day. A few weeks ago, one of my best friends, Rob, proposed to his lovely girlfriend, Kara and asked me to do their engagement photos. We mutually decided to do them at and I couldn’t have been more excited.

When I first hung out with Kara for the first time, I knew they had something special. Just seeing two people “click,” it’s like magic. I could go on with some terrible metaphors and analogies about magic and Harry Potter and such but I’ll spare you my terrible jokes and just leave you with this image. Be on the lookout for the rest within the next few days.

Chris Bodnar - Cute couple, great light, great location! :)

Imogene + Willie

There is something special about owning a quality, handmade item. Someone has put their time and effort into something that they are passionate about. The fine people down at are some of the best at what they do. They make jeans and other garments. I don’t remember how I heard of them but I remember that I really liked what they were about. They put all importance on having goods made in the USA. Using old techniques, they fashion some of the finest clothing that I have worn. Going into Imogene + Willie for the first time in April, I was unsure what to expect. I was greeted with smiles and a handshake. They stopped to chat for a few minutes before I even got around to asking questions about jeans. It was like they cared about me as a person before I was a customer. I was completely taken aback when I tried on the first, last pair of jeans I’ll ever own. They went to pinning and asking me how I liked my jeans to fit. After it was all said and done, I had a custom fitting pair of jeans that would last me a very long time and were fit specifically to me. Those jeans are worth every single penny that I spent that day. That is only the physical aspect of what they are about.

On an emotional, and more important level, it’s what they are about. They put all importance on having “Made in the U.S.A.” items. They focus on the customer. I have been to the Imogene + Willie brick and mortar store a few times since April and every single time I have been greeted with a “Hey man, it’s good to see you again.”  Every person that walks through that door is a friend. Whenever I walk in, there are people chatting with the staff because they have built relationships based on being friends first. They go out of their way to make sure everyone gets specialized, custom service every time they go in. They might look like just a shop but to the community, they are something more. They host events and attend shows to be apart of the growing community in Nashville that feels the same way they do.

Nashville is a hot bed for one of a kind shops and stores that focus on handmade items and building strong customer relationships. Moving there in January will be a great thing and I look forward to being apart of this growing community of artists who really care about helping each other and the communities in which they live.

And make sure to give this video a watch.

- Solid gold on the words and photos front buddy. Well done.
