Full sun, music, murals and a pageant princess.
These guys were too much fun during their anniversary photoshoot! First of all, I love it when people decide they want pictures celebrating love, even if they're not "official" engagement pictures. I had a friend who started doing "Just because I love you" shoots for people who had been married a while but had never gotten the cool engagement pictures, and I LOVE that idea. (hint hint if you never got your dream engagement picts)
BOLD is is the young adult ministry of Bethany, reaching those between the ages of 18-30. Our vision is to see young adults, both in Bethany and in our city, connected to a powerful community of believers who are passionate for God. It is our passion to see them discipled into their God-given purposes, and we are working towards this through weekly B-Groups and social events
I had so much fun shooting this lovely preggo and her toddler Fiona! Judah and Fiona are only a day apart in age also, so thats fun. Not only is Melissa a great friend and awesome pastor, she is also a phenomenal harpist.... as in she's-literally-played-for-royalty-in-England good.
She was also so patient while I practiced indoor and low light shooting - something I am still very new at, but so far love!
This lady is unbelievably gorgeous and photogenic, but as pretty as she is, it is pale in comparison to how beautiful she is on the inside. She literally has dedicated her life to sharing Jesus and loving people, and it is the true definition of beauty. Also she just got married, and if you can, you should take a look at her weddings pictures (I didn't take them. but I am a huge fan!)
This shoot was from quite a few years ago, and was my first engagement shoot ever! I was so nervous but the subject were thankfully my brother and his finace, and they were so much fun! This shoot was in the PNW, right outside of Mosier in the Columbia Gorge. SIDE NOTE: If you ever have the opportunity to go to Oregon, you realllly should. it is stunning.
They MAY have gotten married a few weeks prior in Tulsa Oklahoma, but we all decided it was well worth it to put the bridal regalia back on and snap some "wedding" pictures in the gorgeous Columbia River Gorge. If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times. you MUCH visit the Gorge. I am convinced it is the most beautiful place in the entire world.
