Purdue Wedding

This wedding was a small and personal ceremony on the sand at Avila Beach.
And it was a real challenge for me photographically.
We started late and lost the light before the ceremony was over.
Because of the way the beach is set in the cove, you don't get to see the actual sunset, and it gets dark more quickly than the beach on the other side of the cove.
It is a beautiful place though.
And I was honored to get to be a part of the special day!





The image above was the actual kiss.
This one was posed so I could get a picture without the flashes, but I think I actually like the one above better.
It tells the story of the evening!


And I think this is my favorite image of the day...

I am BLOWN AWAY by that first image. You should find out who their jeweler is and offer to sell him that image (at a ridiculously high price;)~.

I've now added your photography blog to my friends bar, so I won't forget to check in here. So many beautiful images to see!

Do you want to contact me?

Why photography with an eternal purpose?

In 2008 I read a book by Francis Chan called Crazy Love. While reading that book, I was challenged in the way I gave back to God. Tithing couldn't be enough anymore, but our family lived to the end of our means - without any margin for God to use. So I prayed about how that could change. This venture is one of the ways I have responded to the answer to that prayer. A photography business where God gets the majority of the earnings to use for His purposes.
I'm not sure what that fully looks like yet, but I'm excited for the potential of what God is going to do.
