When you are friends with someone as long as I have been friends with Desiree, you have a lot of history with that person. Lots of laughter and tears. Lots of big life moments. I was more than excited to be asked to take pictures on one of the biggest days of her life. We haven’t seen each other in a few years as life gets busy and pulls us in so many directions. It was so fun to reconnect with her (and her family) at her bridal shower this summer. We laughed just like we used to and planned for the big day. It might have been crazy for us to haul everybody out to the Grand Haven beach on one of the busiest hottest days of the year, but they rolled with it and we got some fun shots. It was such a happy day at beautiful venues with such a beautiful couple. I hope we don’t go as long until the next time we see each other…there is nothing like childhood friends. Spending time with her made me feel like a kid again. I hope that they continue to make each other feel young as they grow old together. Cheers to Des and Eric!
