I couldn’t be more honored to have captured this wedding!! In five years of shooting, this was the first wedding that I shot on my birthday! 04.05!!! It was an exceptional birthday!  It was a Friday! It was raining! It was so beautiful!

Larissa’s mom hand sewed the sleeves of Larissa’s dress! I was a little nervous when she arrived with the sleeves OFF the dress, yes OFF the dress, & mentioned she had to sew them on!!!! Little did I know Larissa’s mom, Sandy, is quite the seamstress & had the sleeves sewn on in about fifteen minutes!! MIRACLES! WHOA!!!!

Luke & Larissa were married at the All Saints Episcopal Church! Best church to get married at in Redding, CA! Seriously! If you want a church wedding, get married here!!!

Their reception was held at the Shasta Builder’s Exchange! & what a fun reception!

Hot Wings & the best parmesan artichoke dip on the planet was on the menu! Oh so delicious!

Lyndzi, Larissa’s cousin did an incredible job with the design & coordination of the wedding! Loved working with her!

Michelle Gallagher!!! Her make up was incredible! Love you Love you! Lacy Tucker!! You did an awesome job with Larissa’s hair!!!! Made the photographs a dream!

I couldn’t be more thankful for my team! Thank you Anne-Marie Bailey & Brianna Morrison for your hard work & rocking the photo booth!!!!

.capturing the heart. {Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry AMT}

Prepping for this blog post made me chuckle a bit. Believe it or not all of these beautiful models were captured in about a two hour period! I know! I know!

I have the honor of teaching a photography class at Bethel’s School of Supernatural Ministry!! The challenge is to teach & capture!!! Teach & capture!! Teach & capture!!! It’s so fun! Love! Love! Love it!

Day 3 of the class is Studio Shooting & Natural Light Shooting! It is a lot going on & a lot to take in! With about 30 people photographing & watching, we love to set them up with super awesome models!

Camille & Nicole were my studio models & did an amazing job!!! One of the stations was set up with a 7″ Octodome SoftBox & the other a single Beauty Dish!

Natural light is always great, Hannah & Terese did amazing as well!

H A N N A H!

She was a little dream doll! Posing it up for all of the students! Held nothing back! So proud of her!!!!
