welcome

People are hungry for stories. It's part of our very being. Storytelling is a form of history, of immortality too. It goes from one generation to another.

Tara + Patrick Engaged // Hartwick Pines State Park, Grayling, Michigan

 

“Fill your life with adventures, not things.  Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.”  

Tara and Patrick love the outdoors.  This past year, they have camped somewhere new once a month.  Yes, even through the bitter cold Michigan winter months.  They got engaged during their December camping trip.  What an awesome way to start a year-long camping adventure.  And what better place than Hartwick Pines State Park in Grayling, Michigan to capture their engagement memories.

I had a blast getting to know Tara and Patrick more during our session.  I asked them to write a short love letter to one another that they later read to each other.  Listening to them read their love notes made me all the more excited to photograph their upcoming intimate wedding.  I felt their words in my heart and saw the love in their eyes.
