Ferdinand + Courtney

This is just your friendly reminder that the snowy crap is only 16 weeks away. But really, sorry for taking you guys back to the winter on this cloudy July day, but I couldn't pass up the chance to show these two, especially this week of all weeks. Ferdinand is my best friend to end all best friends. The kid walked up to me in my neighborhood (9 houses down from me) in the summer before 3rd grade and just very proudly said "Hi, I'm Ferdinand!" (me thinking this was a complete made up name proved to be incorrect). Needless to say, we were inseparable from that point on. Basketball, Camping, Lego's, a short stint as a band called "Miner in Possession" that created hot beats using Garage Band; we did it all. Obviously, the years have gone on, we've gone to college, we've started our jobs, I got married and had a kid before just about any of our other friends even considered seriously dating; but he's remained that one, awesome constant in my life. The friend I'm so thankful that has known me through every single step of the way. This weekend, he finally gets to marry the love of his life. Something I'm so grateful that he has found. Courtney is his perfect match and his incredible companion. Their personalities play off of each other so well, and the happiness they share just pours out of these images. Unfortunately, due to the life of a wedding photographer that has to plan his life a year in advance or more, I won't be in attendance for the big day. It's a bummer, and I'll be missing them both so much that day; but I also know that there's so much more in this life and our friendship than that one day. This is just the beginning for them. It's an event and a celebration, for sure. But it's just one day out of the thousands of others we've already shared, and will share in the future. They've got a whole marriage ahead of them, a beautiful journey, and I just can't wait to walk through the rest of the foreseeable future with Ferdinand and Courtney right there with us.

Randal

Being chosen to document the incredible time in a teen's life, known as their Senior year is right up there with the honor that comes along with documenting a wedding day. Getting invited into the family, even if only for a couple hours is such a humbling experience. This time around I got to document not only Randal, but the rest of his family as well and it was worth every second. The Mill's family does it right.

Jeff + Karah

You know that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you just feel that something is simply good? Where it's all that you can do but to jump up and down with excitement because of happiness you see in someone else? Jeff and Karah are just one of those couples that put a serious smile on your face the minute you're with them. We laughed, we drove around Ann Arbor, and we just had a genuinely good time celebrating them and the amazing love that they share. I truly cannot even wait for their wedding next June, if it's anything like their engagement session, we're in for some great times.
