A yearly tribute to those who make it all worth it…

Winter is a time to reflect. As I sit in my office protected from yet another winter weather advisory, nothing could be more heartwarming than reliving all of these amazing moments from 2018. So many new people entered our lives, but one of them in particular changed everything. On January 20, 2018, Debbie and I welcomed our baby boy Jake into the world and suddenly everything has new meaning. Every time I pick up the camera, whether it’s at a wedding, family portrait, or in the backyard on a summer day, I have been given new perspective on what these photographs mean. These photos aren’t just for you. They are for your children. And their children. In 16 years your son will show his first girlfriend what a cute baby he was with this family portrait. In 60 years your granddaughter will show her children how beautiful you were on your wedding day. Our memory will live on through these photos long after we are gone. One day, they will act as a window into the past and will warm your heart yet again.

Follow me through this collection of memories from 2018. Weddings, friends, families, baby Jake, and lots of warm summer sun. Thank you to all of you who welcomed us into your lives last year!!

2017 // A Year in Review

2017 Highlights 186-2.jpg

Every year I look back and am greeted with the welcome reminder that the only constant in this world is change. Each wedding is a departure into new territory and every individual that finds themselves in front of my lens is wildly unique. For this, I couldn't be more grateful. Big ups to all of you folks for opening up, being yourself, and letting me to capture those moments in-between. Cheers to 2018!! 

From weddings to elopements, backyards to summer homes, Sleeping Bear to Beaver Island, Hawaii to Bay Harbor, Traverse City to Timbuktu and everywhere in between... thank you for bringing us along on your adventures.
