Brian + Mandy | Engaged 2015 | Everal Barn Engagement Session | Westerville, Ohio

I have been fortunate to photograph several of our former students this year. As some of you know, Mike and I served together in a church in Galena, Ohio (Rural Chapel!) and I would drive back and forth to help him when I was at Cedarville University and we were dating/engaged. Mandy started in our student ministry in 7th grade and we were there with her for several years. I photographed her younger sister’s senior session last fall and was so excited with Mandy and Brian asked me to be their wedding photographer!!

Enjoy these fall portraits (actually mid-december portraits!) photographed at the Everal Barn! Congratulations to our dear friends!

Bri + Corbin | Highbanks Metro Park | Engaged

Bri + Corbin: Engaged!

I walked into a hair salon to get my first hair cut in about 6 months, since before I had Titus. A beautiful young lady greeted me, made me a cup of coffee (thank you, Jesus!), and as she handed it to me I noticed a stunning & sparkling ring on her left hand. I chatted with her briefly and then was called back. My hair stylist told me that she had just got engaged that previous weekend! I made a note to talk with her again about the special I was offering to brides in the Columbus area as I am trying to rebuild my business for the FOURTH time since 2008. I am so grateful that she saw the value in my work and decided to hire me for her wedding this upcoming spring. She is full of joy and enthusiasm and I love the way she and Corbin interact with each other. They are like kids waiting for Christmas. I know it will be an incredible wedding day for them!

Cambodia | Mission Trip 2005 | International Photography

What I wouldn’t give to be able to have pictures from many previous trips with the camera equipment and skills I’ve acquired over the last decade! I wish many of these were more clear, higher quality, etc(!!), but I’m thankful that I have them and can look back on these experiences.  I decided to search back through the archives as I’m building my “travel page” on my website and decided to share some from my trip to Cambodia, right after I graduated from high school! Since then, I have been to 11 countries in the last 10 years, including spending a year in Argentina with Word of Life Launch Program. Looking forward to many more trips and being able to tell the stories of so many from behind my lens.
