Markeshia and Marcus // Wedding

“Take my hand, I'll teach you to dance I'll spin you around, won't let you fall down” - He is We I didn’t know much about Markeshia and Marcus before their wedding. I did have the joy of meeting them the weekend before their wedding at my cousin’s wedding; Markeshia was one of Annika’s bridesmaids. We simply introduced ourselves and exchanged excitement for both Annika’s wedding and her wedding the following weekend. But upon arriving at Markeshia and Marcus's wedding I quickly learned they loved Jesus and they love him a lot! Markeshia and Marcus were prayed over by a number of people all throughout the day, their wedding ceremony was dripping with gospel truth and their vows highlighted

Ashley & Ward // Proposal

“Well I wanna love you forever I do I wanna spend all of my days with you I'll carry your burden and be the wind at your back I wanna spend my forever, forever like that” - Ben Rector A few weekends ago I drove down to Charlotte, North Carolina, to surprise one of my best friends; however, my surprise was not the biggest one of the weekend. I arrived on Friday, July 12th, and met up with another one of Ashley’s friends, and Ashley’s mom, dad and brother. On Saturday morning, we all surprised Ashley at a local diner for breakfast. Upon arriving to the diner, Ashley was greeted by her mom and it was at that time Ashley knew something was going on. Her mom then led her back to the table where t

Josh and Annika // Wedding

I’m crazy about you. You’re my very first love, and I feel like telling everyone how wonderful you make me feel.” - anonymous All weddings are beautifully unique, they all speak to who the couple is, what they value and how they want to start this chapter of their lives together. A wedding with several hundred guests is no better or worse than a small intimate family wedding; a wedding with a plated dinner is no more or less “successful” than a wedding with a buffet. All weddings are beautiful pictures of love found in a world full of skeptics and, often times, darkness. Weddings are a light of hope that love still exists and it is worth celebrating. This wedding in particular was extra spec

Blake and Abbie // Engagement

“A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique compliment, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become ourselves.” – Edgar Cayce When you meet with a group of future classmates you don’t usually enter thinking, “I bet I am going to meet my future spouse today’; and I don’t think that is what Abbie or Blake thought when they went to that first meeting with some of the people they would be attending PT school with. Blake and Abbie both attended The University of Dayton for

Sandlund // Family

My husband and I thrive on friendships; we thrive in relating to other people and we are so thankful for the people the Lord has placed into our lives since we moved to Kettering after college. Tim and Jenna are some of those people. Tim and Jenna were part of our first house church when we started attending church in Kettering. We have had the joy of seeing them transition from newlyweds (they got married just a few weeks before us) to parents to be, to parents of two beautiful boys. I personally have had the joy of capturing so many of their life changes through photography and this session was no less sweet. Tim and Jenna are consistent, adventurous and patient parents. They speak to thei

Andrew and Amanda // Engagment

"When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable." - Walt Disney Amanda contacted me back in December of 2017; she described her wedding day as dreamy and whimsical. She went on to explain that it was Disney themed and they wanted to be able to capture the magic that surrounded their wedding. I quickly knew this was a wedding I wanted to be a part of. I could tell from our conversations that Amanda and Andrew had a sense of magic in their souls. I finally got to meet Amanda and Andrew in real life last week, and the magic I had sensed over the phone and e-mails just spilled out of them. They had a contagious love that welled up from deep within them, it
