God sent these two to me…

As the vision for my business grows, I continuously ask God to send couples to me that have a heart after His own. The truth is that I love marriage more than I love photography. My dream is to be able to provide pre-marital counseling to each of my couples. My desire is for all of them to have a solid foundation…I want each of them to flourish.

I remember when I first received Kristin and Rick’s email inquiry earlier this year.  It was instant confirmation of everything I had been praying about. Kristin mentioned in the email about how she had been praying for the right photographer to capture her big day and that finding me was truly a blessing. Later, we met at the bridal collective (La Maison de la Bridal) where we talked for a couple of hours and they shared with me how they met. I couldn’t stop cheesing…

So, Rick was in search of a singles small group around the Atlanta area to connect with and God had just placed in Kristin’s heart to start one. Long story short, Rick was the first one to show up on Kristin’s door step that evening! Insert Wow…and then a laugh! After we finished chatting, they mentioned that they couldn’t leave without praying for my business and all the dreams God has placed in my heart…and yup, we went for it right in the middle of Lenox Mall!

The two of them will be planting Vantage Point Church here in the Atlanta area shortly after they are married. I am so encouraged by their faithfulness and I absolutely love to see couples focus more on planning to be married more than just planning a wedding . These two will be a success, without a doubt!
