when i’m with you

this is aubrey. aubs. my little aubs. she’s my little sister and i love her to pieces. i was looking through these photos and thinking about how much fun we had together this summer. a few of my favorite moments in life were spent with her. okay…most of my favorite moments in life.

this past summer was spent driving to grand haven and running into the lake in the middle of the night, going to a mumford and sons concert, camping, going to cedar point, obsessing over which christian singers we wanted to marry, having bonfires in the backyard, and jumping off of my grandpa’s boat. all with her by my side.

she’s still a youngin’, but she’s grown up so much in the last year. she’s become one of the most stylish, funniest, and caring people i know and i’m so proud to not only call her my sister, but my best friend. i honestly don’t know what i’d do without her. she keeps me sane and understands me like no one else.

i just can’t wait for this summer and the many adventures we will go on together.

love you, aubs.

phil + michelle

cherries. pups. sailboats. the grand traverse bay. more pups! good beer. what more do you need for a good wedding? nothing.

this one was definitely up there on my favorite weddings. especially because it was mostly michigan themed. these two met while sail boating and themed their wedding on different parts of michigan that were important to them (including a few areas near chicago, since they live there). these two are really just some of the most wonderful and interesting people i’ve ever met. and what i love most about them is that they love their dogs so much. i’m a huge puppy lover and they are, too, so i was super excited to see that they included their dogs in their wedding. so fun! thanks for having me along, you two!

will + karen

what a ridiculously great wedding. will and karen had their wedding at crooked creek ranch, which is one of my favorite places to shoot at. and i hope you can see why! the barn, the horses, the lake…every detail is beautiful. but that’s not what made this wedding so great. the way will looks at karen is indescribable. their love just radiates from them like crazy and they just really know how to have fun with each other.

thanks you guys so much for having me and thanks to my second shooter, emily vermaat. a few shots in here were taken by her.
