This is one of my favorite photo shoots of all time, for a few reasons. For one, it features my cousin Curt and his incredible fiancee Clare. “I less” Clare, as we call her, came into our lives and immediately found a place within our crazy family. There was never a doubt in our mind that she would fit in. Secondly, the photos were taken at one of our family’s summer cottages on the gorgeous island of Put in Bay, Ohio, which is where we spent our summers. Some of my favorite memories growing up with Curt (the Boathouse, forbidden cottage parties) happened on that little island. Finally, it was taken by the amazingly talented Doug Treiber Photography. For their session, they chose one of those perfect summer days where there was a cool breeze in the air and not a cloud in the sky. Stay tuned tomorrow for the rest of the incredible shoot and to hear the story behind this adorable couple and their island paradise.
