On October of 2014, my friends Shawn and Rick Fowler were finally allowed to fulfill their wish and be united as a family. The love between these two wonderful people is one for books and movies. It genuinely fills my heart with so much joy knowing that in this day and age the world is progressing to a point where two people, regardless of gender, as able to express their love for one another and be recognized as a family. There is still a long way to go before tolerance is a valued virtue on this planet, but we are slowly moving in the right direction.

I wish Shawn and Rick all the happiness in this world together and this portrait of the two is my wedding gift to them. Two halves that make a full heart.
