Personal Blogpost: 30 Before 30 Bucket List

I haven’t done anything like this personal on my website before, but I’ve read that if your bucket list public or on display you are more likely to achieve your goals. I sat down recently to write down my New Year’s resolutions, but I ended up creating a 30 Before 30 Bucket List. Seeing that I have just over a year and half to accomplish these things, I tried to keep them relatively attainable both budget wise and timeline wise. I’m pairing them with personal pictures from our east coast road trip because, ya know, I’m a photographer.

Luke + McKenzie Grand Rapids Wedding

It was so fun shooting a Grand Rapids wedding. Grand Rapids isn’t that far from me, but I tend to book weddings mostly in my tiny corner of Michigan. Luke and McKenzies wedding was at Saint Andrews Cathedral and reception at Thousand Oaks Golf club. Their whole family and friends were high energy and full of love. What a beautiful day it was!

Jonny & Elisabeth Warren Dunes Promotional Video Shoot

I’ve been watching photographer promo videos on Youtube for over a year now. I got tired of just watching and I sent an email off to an old friend. Josh Spear gladly accepted my request to create my own promotional video. After a vision meeting, we came up with a great plan. The August night of the shoot final arrived and it was windy, overcast and there was a chill in the air.

To be honest, I was disappointed that I wouldn’t get that sunny glory I always dream of for photos. But we couldn’t really reschedule at that point. We started at Greenbush and the clouds continued. We headed to the dunes next. We hiked the backside of the dune and the very second we got to the peak THE SUN CAME TO GREET US! Josh and I looked at each other and both BEAMED. It was every visual artist’s dream. That warm glow stayed and the night finished with a soft, pastel pink sunset. To say it was a dream would be an understatement.

A HUGE THANK YOU to Josh for helping me fulfill a dream of mine.
