• Justin + Jess | Part II

Every couple I work with is happy. They are excited to be getting married to their best friend and their soul mate…but Justin and Jess are more than happy….they are joyful! You can see in it their images. There is a joy in their relationship that only comes from the Lord.  It was mentioned during the ceremony that they are almost always smiling…especially when they are together.  As their photographer, I couldn’t ask for anything more in a couple! I literally just told them to be themselves and I captured it. Their images are full of laughter and smiles and they just feel so genuine! …because they are!


Justin and Jess are such an awesome couple.  Both share such a gentle, sweet spirit.  They love the Lord and I can’t wait to see what they are going do in His name. It was such a privilege to capture their day and be surrounded by their friends and family. Jess and Justin, thank you for trusting me and allowing me to be a part your wedding. It’s such an honor and Michael and I couldn’t be happier for the two of you! Congratulations and have a blast in San Diego!

00h lala! Look at those colors!

Oh I love these! I just love them! They’re so stinkin’photogenic!

Can I just say that plain brick walls are not my most favorite background…but on a rainy day, I really just had to use whatever I could find and man did they make it work! I loved this portrait!

This is a favorite…… I think it’s just so model-ish!

Really? They’re so happy and it’s so wonderful! I love my job!

So after a disappointing change of plans, the reception was moved inside due to rain. They used the church Family Life Center and my first thought was “Oh no, flourescent lighting!”… a photographer’s worst reception nightmare! But a close friend designed and created a suspended masterpiece from the gym ceiling. It was BEAUTIFUL. The dance floor was covered by an arrangement of branches, twigs and lights. I was amazed! It TOTALLY transformed the room!

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Brock!

    Remember how you wanted a “*gasp!* Captivating?!” picture? The umbrella picture is this one.

    Also, this might be my favorite dip-kiss? It looks completely unawkward and very delightful. =)
