People are fascinating, unique, and important. I love capturing images of people because I believe an image of a person can be a long-lasting treasure for years to come - enjoyed by that individual, their family, relatives, and future generations.
These types of photographs show a little piece of one of the best gifts we've been given: family.
We as people love the sweet joy of being together, of stories unfolding, of marriages and families growing.
Time is etched into family photos. A single family photo can be reflected upon historically, viewed in the current moment of time, or gazed upon with wonder and anticipation of the future.
Oh the vast views that this world has to offer us; soft sunsets, striking silhouettes, brooding storms and busy metropolis perspectives. There is movement and there is stillness, there is art and there is architecture, all combinations of things either man-crafted or God-made, all beautiful and worth pausing too see.
I take pictures of everything, everywhere I go! There is endless beauty around us and when slow down just enough and train our eyes to see, we are able to capture more than we had ever imagined. My phone is my most used camera - I would venture to guess that your cellphone is your most used camera too! A nice fancy camera can be helpful, but you don't have to have one to take a good picture. Sometimes the quick and easy mobile snap is the way to go. Now more than ever, photography is accessible to everyone, and the result is beautiful.
I love traveling and capturing all the beautiful things that this world has to offer. We were made to explore and adventure. It brings God pleasure when we enjoy His creation, and it brings joy and thrill to our hearts too.
Iceland’s majestic landscape is full of wonder and awe. The jagged cliffs, massive glaciers, and staggering waterfalls left us saying: “wow, wow, wow.”
(also, I think over half of our best pictures came shooting out of a moving vehicle going 90 km/hr . . . don’t try this at home)
India is an enormous subcontinent with so much to see. I have only been there once, but it was one of my favorite experiences thus far in life. I love the people of India, as well as the vast landscapes and impressive architecture.
The land of Israel is amazing! I had been there several times before Rachel and I got married and we have gone once together. Something unique about visiting Israel is that wherever you look, you see layer upon layer of history. You see firsthand God's faithfulness and goodness towards His people Israel. A rich sense of remembering paints every corner of this land. There is depth in every stone, every landscape, every structure that was built. Turn one way and you see a place where ancient prophets walked or kings battled. Turn another and more recent wars are etched into the memory of the scarred stones and buildings. A vast expression of culture and religion is spread throughout a land that has had many important moments on the world stage.
Turkey is a land full of rich history, sprawling itself along the beautiful Mediterranean region connecting Europe to Asia.
I loved my time in Uganda in 2012. These pictures offer a glimpse into the heart of Uganda: rich sunsets, african plains, wildlife, crowded stadiums, and...of course..."boda boda" rides!
Colorado...well, this caption is simple: Who doesn't love the beauties of Colorado?
Weddings are beautiful beginnings, full of commitment to remember and moments to cherish.
