30 Years Together: Bruce & Julie.

My parents are two of my favorite people in this world. After 30 years together, they continue to love each other and be intentional in their marriage. I’ve been able to watch their marriage from close and from afar and it has always inspired and encouraged me. They have set and example of what love looks like for me and I’m so thankful for that.

Shelby & Joey. 

I met Shelby through Cornerstone Christian Church when Jonathan and I worked with the youth group. She was one of the students then and now she is all grown up and ENGAGED to Joey. They are so sweet and their love for each other is evident.  I'm so excited for their big day in 2018! And, fun fact, they are getting married on my anniversary with Jonathan so we will share an anniversary together.

Ashlee & Jon.

I have known Ashlee since I was born. We were neighbors and even though she was many years older than me, she was one of my first friends and someone I looked up to. I was truly honored when she asked me to take her engagement and wedding photographs. Being able to capture pictures of someone you’ve known for a very long time is an amazing experience. Jon loves her so much and Ashlee’s love for him runs deeply. This was evident in how they interacted on and off camera.  

Congrats to the soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Stephenson! 

Jonathan & Kait.

I was so thankful that these three were willing to be my models!  I’ve known Kait for 4 years and lived on H3 with her and have gotten to know Jonathan through Psychology classes at LCU. It has been great watching them as they became friends and fell in love. And let’s talk about Shuffles for one moment: she is one of the cutest puppies I have ever seen and I have been able to puppy-sit her twice. Adorable.

Andrew & Emily.

When I was growing up, I remember spending time in the summer at my Aunt Carol and Uncle Gene’s farm. I loved it there. Playing with my cousins, riding their horse Dee-Dee, and playing in the hay loft are some of the memories that remain vivid in my mind. I remember being partnered up with Andrew for the games we would all play together and we had so much fun.

Will & Sam.

This beautiful girl was my roommate and this lad is my childhood best friend. Sam spent her last semester at LCU in Salamanca, Spain while Will was at LCU. They were over 4,000 miles apart for a whole semester and their love for each other only grew. 

Dawson: Class of 2018.

Dawson is a senior at Dee-Mack High School and I met him through Caleb. They are best friends and did their senior sessions back-to-back. Dawson plays baseball, football, and basketball at Dee-Mack High School which really keeps him busy all year round. Thank you for letting me take your senior pictures, Dawson! 

Caleb: Class of 2018.

Caleb is a senior at Dee-Mack High School and I’ve know him since he was about 5 years old. His father was the youth minister at my church when I was in middle school so taking his senior photos was a blast from the past. I couldn't believe how grown up he was! #i'moldnow Caleb plays football and baseball at Dee-Mack High School and also likes to fish. Taking his photos was a lot of fun for me!
