I knew I was gonna get a long with Alexis when she showed me her marquise diamond ring -- I happen to bear a marquise too! Matt and Alexis have such a sweet relationship, I loved hearing from their friends and family during their rehearsal dinner and I think you will too! Also their adorable dog came along for portraits, so of course I had to include it!
Their original plan was to elope but in the end they wanted friends, family, and a party. Wanting to keep a level of intimacy, I suggested Rich and Kaylyn exchange vows privately during the first look!
Singapore is a beautiful but tiny island in Southeast Asia home to several cultures and people groups. Because of its wealth and influence it is a perfect hub for illumiNations Asia an organization that seeks to translate the bible into every heart language in Asia.
The Nawuri Chief shares his story of how the translation of the Bible into their mother-tongue counted his tribe among the children of God. Before he felt unknown by God, because he didn't not speak his language. This video was produced in part to share with the people of Ghana to gain support for translation efforts throughout the country.
There's something really special about capturing love stories and I consider a privilege when I get to be a part of multiple stories within a family. A year prior I shot a wedding film for Alex and Kassy and when Kassy's sister Sarah got in touch, I was thrilled. This entire family is not only gorgeous but they are kind and genuine people. I love seeing familiar faces when I shoot weddings, so keep em coming!
I love that Brandon and Brittney wanted the adventure of an elopement but still wanted to celebrate with those closest to them. Some of their family had never traveled outside the country so their wedding was the perfect excuse for the whole family to finally get a vacation of a lifetime. Their vows will make you tear up and the views will leave your jaw on the floor.
It's not every day that your sister gets married. I was so honored to be able to stand beside her and celebrate this love. She also wanted me give her a wedding video, so I enlisted a few of my go-to videographers to step in and capture the day. In preparing the day, Jon was weary of being on camera and getting too vulnerable so I suggested they do a private vow exchange during the first look. It allowed them to have a moment to look each other and soak in the meaning of the day.
This family is full of eloquent writers, in 2016 I captured Christy + Brady's Wedding and man-oh-man Brady had me tearing up when he wrote his vows as a poem. Well Branson joined this family well prepared because the way he expresses his love for Logan is nothing short of perfect.
After ten years together, Jac and Chelsea wanted to start a new chapter by going on an adventure. They kicked off a three week Scottish road trip by exchanging vows a few hours north of Glasgow. Along with my best friend and the fantastic photographer, Melissa Marshall, we stood by (in the rain) to capture it, so they had something to treasure and share with their families.
