About a week and a half ago, I was able to photograph at Byron Dragway and make some gorgeous photos during this engagement session! It's amazing when you look around how easy it is to find a location that satisfies your photographic style and location. I mean, this was made at a dragway! Who would of though?! Essentially, always know your surrounds to make the most out of a shoot!!

It's 1:56 a.m. (as of 10:10 on Sunday, the 14th) my feet are sore, I'm absolutely exhausted, and yet, I find myself constantly thinking about this incredible wedding... The wedding of Kelsey & Brice, which I was grateful enough to be able to document. Simply, today was such a special day for so many people and for so many walks of life. I, myself even shed a few tears during the speeches tonight as did many others.
Weddings have a magical way of gathering "everyone" together. They gather family, especially the loved ones whom we may have lost, those who are friends, and even those who are acquaintances!
It's a blessed event, and I am grateful to view, document, and be a part of these experiences. Cheers to the bride & groom!!

I understand that this book may not hold truth to some. I also know from a business standpoint I shouldn't be posting about religion, but this incredible book has been a guide to pure happiness for me and I feel such a need to talk about it.

Before finding my wife, I looked at the world in such a demeaning, sad, and wretched place, and believe me, I still do, to a point. However, my wife introduced me to God, and without trying to "turn" me over or by forcibly trying to get to become a Christian, she helped me realize my potential as a human.
Since meeting her, I've learned to forgive, laugh, love, volunteer, and praise others. However, that was my doing by finding God because of my wife's love. She was a catalyst to where I am currently at.
And because of these such strong words in the Bible, my business has grown and still continues to. Our friendships with others has expanded exponentially. We donate our time to help others and use our powers for good. It's an incredible feeling. Simply, God is good, and I am glad to have accepted His love. .

So, this photo is a great accomplishment for me as this is my father and his new bride, Sarah, my NEW STEP-MOM!!! I stood in as the best man and I was the wedding photographer as well! It was simply and incredible day and I'm ever so grateful to have been a part of it! <3

When you have a couple session and you get side tracked but regardless, all the photos you take are absolutely stunning. Christina looks amazing and the atmosphere, nature, the crown, the colors, everything was perfect and created such an incredible photo. I am very proud to have taken this portrait. :)

I'm a very intimate person and as a photographer I tend to really delve deep into that void. Example, moments like these are so profound, so strong, and seem to move so slowly, yet so fast for everyone who's involved. For the bride it may last a second, but for me, the moment when the father walks into the room, I follow him with my eyes, I can see his expression, the love, the anxiousness. The same goes for the bride, I get to REALLY take in these moments at such a slow pace and soak it all in. It may just be a photograph, but for some, this photograph would mean a lifetime of love and passion, and you must always remember that... especially as a photographer.
