Inner Circle Photography » Metro Detroit Photography

John, Lauren and the boys joined us again for another #BartkHopkFamilyVacation this time our travels took us to the Traverse City area.

We rented a house in Northport and it was picture perfect. The sunrise and sunset was beautiful and we loved having the beach right out the back door. Adam, John and Lauren loved the fire on the beach and I had a blast journaling and sleeping! It was a great vacation. Just like last year we opted to do some family photos here are some of the trip highlights (real camera and iphone) and John and Lauren’s family photos!

    MIR_8777 7-7-07 :: TEN YEARS LATERpintopinterest

    10 years.

    I remember that I met you right before my 17th birthday. I remember being excited that you were coming to my birthday party. I remember you telling me you were jealous because I was hanging out on the hammock with a friend and not with you.  I remember our first date a few weeks later.  I remember that first kiss. I remember you asking me to be your girlfriend. I remember 8 months later you asking for my hand in marriage.I remember our AIM conversations and LiveJournal comments. I remember our first trip together. Disney. I remember that cheap motel and janky bus. I remember you fighting for me. I remember our first condo. I remember those rough days. I remember your support. I remember our handfasting in front of all our friends. I remember you turning 21 and being sad I couldn’t go into the bar with you! I remember buying our first house. I remember our wedding day. The way you looked in that tux. I remember holding you during our first dance. I remember our family surrounding us with love. I remember you building a life for us. Working like a crazy man. I remember our honeymoon and the white sand. I remember losing my job and you saying it would be ok. I remember you pushing me for greatness. I remember moving to royal oak. I remember those dark days. I remember you fighting for me. I remember our love. I remember moving to the Loretta house. I remember that epic bobble head failure and how we laughed for days. I remember happy days and parties. I remember countless trips. I remember renewing our vows. I remember cheering you on graduating from college. I remember moving into our dream home. I remember making this house ours. I remember you.
    I love that we still continue to grow together. I love your endless support. I love you for the sacrifices you have made for us. Some days are hard but I fight for you. I fight for us. When you leave I still miss you. I’m still excited when you come home. 10 years. All the memories. I always try to remember the good ones over the bad ones. I love you more today than yesterday and I’m happy I chose you to spend my life with. Even though I like to think you say no more than yes, I cherish those yeses and make the most of them. You give me everything and more.
    This year is a Magic year….so happy to be spending it with you in the most magical place. A trip back to Disney…just the two of us like we did all those years ago. Thank you for the surprise. You always keep me on my toes.
    Happy 10 YEARS.
    Much love, Miranda

      Pat and Rachel had a beautiful wedding day and Frankenmuth was the perfect setting. They got ready at Bavarian Inn and their ceremony was in the indoor courtyard.

        I was so happy when James emailed me to put my ninja skills to work photographing his proposal to Abby! Even more happy when I found out he wanted to do it at The War Memorial because I love that place so much!

        I had Dani come with me so I could act as if I was photographing her…..once they showed up everything got REAL….real quick!
