This summer was filled with some amazing trips that I'll never forget. Some for work, some for fun, all for memories. Boston::
Nick and I flew into Boston for Adam and Mary Kate's wedding, not because it was anywhere near the wedding in Uxbridge, MA; but because I had never been there and had heard great things. And let me just tell you, Boston delivered! This city was amazing, you feel like you're stepping in to a small town in Europe when you walk the back streets. We walked a lot, drove a lot, visited Harvard, and ate at Cheers! (which neither of us recommend, it was a bad call). Either way, it was an awesome trip and an amazing city through and through.
Mackinaw Island and Northern Michigan::
My family, Cali, and I all went to Mackinaw Island, Traverse City, and some other great spots in Northern Michigan for a few days in August and it was spectacular. No matter how many times I visit these cities I'm still blown away by their beauty. We rode bikes on the island (a tandem for Cali and I), kayaked near Traverse, and even got a chance to meet up with our buds Bryan and Mae while they were in the city as well! If you're not from Michigan and you are reading this, you need to check out the Northern half of our state. You won't regret it.
When I got the call to shoot Sean + Katye's Engagement session in Chicago, I knew I had to make a trip out of it. So I grabbed my two best buds, Ferdinand and Evan and we hit the road to stay with some family I have outside of the city. We got to spend a beautiful day walking around downtown, hitting some stores, the beach, and the pier, and just having some great laughs.
Ferd: "What are you doing?" Me: "Taking a picture of all of us." Ferd: "That probably didn't work."
