dan&kara | camp blodgett wedding

I’ve been thinking long and hard about what to say for this blog post - like since the moment we left the wedding - and I still feel like I’m coming up short. These two are some of the most loving and selfless people we’ve had the opportunity to photograph, and it made for one heck of a special day.

Dan&Kara have such a deep admiration and respect for one another, and their ability to light a room up with contagious joy and laughter is incredible. I’m pretty sure I smiled at least 95% of this day, and the other 5% was plotting my portrait time around the constant weather transitions between clouds, wind, pouring rain, blinding sun, a double rainbow, and the most ocean-like conditions I’ve ever seen on Lake Michigan. #puremichigan, am I right?? :)

Seriously though, D&K, we consider it a true gift that we got to photograph your wedding day. Thank you for trusting us. Thank you for not caring about rain and wet sand and not giving a single hoot about letting your dress and veil take a second seat to carefree joy. (Who cares if they get dirty? Let it happen.) And mostly, thank you for treating every single person around you like the most wonderful human alive. It’s beautiful and inspiring and you’re pretty much gonna change the world together.
