(photos shot below with my canon ae-1)
i had always dreamt of the day i would venture out to california and i never thought it would come so soon.
the opportunity arose for me to head west when a couple emailed me and told me they found me through kinfolk magazine (dream sentence right there!) and that they had searched high & low for photographers with my similar style and they were out of luck.. so they wanted to bring me to california to shoot their wedding.
it was an unbelievable experience.
as soon as i got into the city my good friend Ben picked me up from the airport. we instantly set our eyes on adventure. he took me to the golden gate bridge where we blasted "california" by phantom planet (and i cried a little bit on the inside). we headed for the hills to see where the road would take us. we found the most magical mountains with dry desert grass at our feet and the pacific ocean in front of our eyes. everywhere i looked i saw beauty, i coudln't help myself but be so fully amazed by the presence of God in those moments. Ben and I spoke about how amazing it is that God created such a beautiful world but yet He sees us more beautiful because He created us in His image.
How rich is the love of Christ.
& i am so thankful that this gift God has given me has taken me to so many wonderful places + has given me so many opportunities to see all sorts of walks of life.
