Keegan invited me to come along on a surprise photo shoot. Lindsay had been wanting pictures for some time.
This was a compete surprise for her. And it was great fun for me!
Here is what happened :).
We met at Lake Alice.
As we walked down a sidewalk alongside the wedding chapel, Keegan dropped to one knee and took Lindsay's hand.
I totally almost missed it. I should have realized Keegan wouldn't be able to wait very long before he asked Linday to marry him.
Well, of course she said yes!
I loved sharing this moment with the two of them! Incredible!
I'd say Lindsay was excited and happy!
And Keegan was like, "Yes!"
Thanks for inviting me to share in your proposal. What an awesome way to spend my morning!

These were growing along the wall outside the library at Regent.
Huge! Almost the size of basketballs!
And simply gorgeous! My mom always loved hydrangeas.
And I always love a good flower picture. Crosses, solar flare, and flowers.
Those are my favorites :).

Kali and I recently spent some time on the campus of Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
We've been there before, but the beauty of the campus always amazes me.
It's such a fun place to take photos!
You are just getting a glimpse of the lovely fountain they have.
I posted about it earlier - here.
Couldn't resist a little solar popping through the water.
I found this next to the fountain. Got a picture of one last year, too.
Beautiful in bloom!
And you know how I am about cross photos :). This is a beautiful one and I know I took pictures of it last year also.
Posting more tomorrow.

Not long ago, I had the opportunity to spend some time at Regent University in Virginia. On one of the porches I noticed these amazing columns. I shot straight down the line, once in front, and once on the back side. I didn't expect to do anything special with the photos, I just liked the way the lines looked.
This was the front side, facing the building.
This was the back side, facing the courtyard.
I went in to photoshop and worked with the sizing a little bit and was able to position the two photos together in a side-by-side collage. There is just one set of columns, framing the edge of the porch. I just shot it from two different perspectives. I thought it turned out pretty cool.

The 2011 Institute For Cultural Communicators Intern Team with the author and director of the 2011 The Future is Now Evening Program.
Yes, they are quite a serious, professional bunch :).
Their mission is to reach as many students across the United States as they can,
and equip them to get out the message of Jesus Christ through communications skills.
At the parents' commissioning weekend, we got to attend the national debut of the Evening Program.
One of the literary pieces they presented was Cindermaid - the original version of Cinderella.
(A birdie in the tree.)
The children's story this year is Barrie's Peter Pan.
Wendy, with Smee and Captain Hook. In the background, lost boys and a really cute pirate - who happens to be my daughter Kali :).
The last piece they presented was called Hope and Despair.
It was a great program and the interns did a marvelous job!
God has much in store for this group this year. Praying for the team as they are touring across the country, teaching classes and presenting this program. For more information on a conference in your area, you can contact me or you can see the ICC website here.

Kali and I recently traveled to Denver, Colorado, where we had the great honor to photograph the wedding of these two people that we love so much!
The bride was absolutely gorgeous! She always is, but so spectacular this day.
We started with pictures in the park. This is her sister, who was also the maid of honor.
More sisters :).
Her wonderful friends who stood with her as she got married . . .
. . . and prayed with her for a wonderful marriage with her best friend.
I love this picture. Looks like the groom is on a mission. On facebook, one of his friends said he was "on a mission to get married."
I had such a good time taking pictures of the groom with his groomsmen. It helped that I knew every single of them.
Such fun. And such a privilege to be included in this day.
Getting a few words of advice from his best man - haha! Actually, knowing these two, they were probably plotting something :).
It was a beautiful, fun wedding. (Can't believe they are all grown up and getting married already!)
This was by far, the absolute favorite shot when I posted on facebook! Love it!
Something nice to see in today's society - parents that are still married, and that actually love each other.
What a legacy they are passing down to their children.
A long day, a beautiful ceremony, and a new start in a new life together.
Then, on to the reception where they started with the father-daughter dance.
(There are a load of dancing shots posted on facebook.)
Which eventually broke into full-scale dancing. So.much.fun!
And when the day was done, these two got to go home together - best friends, now finally husband and wife.
And Kali and I were so honored to be able to share in your special day.
We love you both so much and pray God's blessings over your lives together.
