The Big Reveal!

I have had the beautiful honor of capturing incredible moments in this family’s life.

I absolutely fell in love with Starr when we met at Starbucks for a bridal meeting!

Everything in me hoped she would hire me! So thrilled to have captured their wedding!

I still pinch myself when I show off their album, or look back through their day!

Getting the news that Starr was expecting brought tears to my eyes! So excited to see their family grow!

Jake & Starr! Congratulations! Oh my goodness! So excited for you!

.kalley + andrew. {worshipu photography course | tbs ranch, ca}

I had the honor of teaching a class at this years Worship U, formally know was School of Worship, at Bethel Church! If you aren’t familiar with Worship U, check it out here! It is incredible! A change your life experience! Every year I am just rocked by the students who come & pour their lives into going deeper!

Day 2 of the class I set up an actual photo session so that everyone taking the class can experience working with a “live” subject, interact with them, and at the same time show them the process of a photo shoot. The art of posing, interacting, encouraging, lighting, etc.

I was absolutely THRILLED this year that Kalley & Andrew were up for the 116 degree heat! Yep! Redding’s hottest day of the year landed on the class & we just had to go for it! Kalley & Andrew were a dream to capture!!! I have been getting to know them through a marriage class that they & Ben & I participate in. I am in awe of their courage to build a happy marriage & to continually fall in love with each other! I so admire them both!

Andrew & Kalley!!! Thank you! Thank you! You are AWESOME!

TBS Ranch! It’s a dream to photograph at your venue! Thank you so much!
