Twenty fifteen. Maybe it's me getting older but each year feels like it ended quicker than the previous. This past year was a whirlwind. Moving, renovating that house we moved to, and having a one year old probably speeds up the process, but I loved it. I was able to travel to part of the world I've never seen, share my passion and teach inspiring artists, as well as document the love stories of the couples I was fortunate enough to work with. Sounds like an incredible year and it truly was.
I want to say thank you. Thank you to the couples who connect with my work, to my friends and family who push me as an artist, but more importantly, as a human, father, follower and significant other. You are all incredibly important to me and I wouldn't be who I am without you.
Cheers to twenty fifteen.
Have you ever had that ever so fleeting moment when you discover something new, and it just clicks? That's what it was like when I met my wife, Jill. It's what I experienced when I started with photography.
That’s Wes and Bethany.
Their love is honest. You can see it in the way they serve and pursue each other. You can feel their connection and it makes you want to be a better husband/father/son. That’s when I realized it's not solely Wes and Bethany's love for each other, but their desire to create lasting relationships with everyone they meet. It was evident from the moment we met and throughout the time we spent together. I'm thankful that I have two incredible new friends and that I had the honor of documenting their wedding day.
A note to Bethany and Wes: What you have is unique. You are role models to how we should care for the people we love. Your love is wise beyond its years and it’s something we should all strive for. You make the people around you better and you don't even know it because it's a part of who you are.
