Brian and Lauren were wed at The Lake House Inn overlooking Lake Nockamixon in Perkasie, Pennsylvania.  Such a dreamy venue for a wedding, it was an instant fave of mine.  Brian is a pilot in the Air Force, and all the groomsmen were as well, so the theme was definitely travel.  Travel being so near […]

This life is amazing.  This world we see, and the people in it, teem with life and yearn for us, as photographers, to tell their story in a way that is honest and passionate.  In a way that belies the sentiment that “every picture has been taken already.”  The Creator of Creativity is far from […]

    Debbie Mayes - It is exciting and challenging to hear other photographers using the gifts God has given them to glorify Him. Thank you for that! I’m definitely looking into being there.

  • October 24, 2009 - 9:44 pm

    Carol C - What an awesome idea ~ Hope it turns out really well!

  • October 24, 2009 - 11:16 pm

    Jeniel Corpuz - What a great testimony. It’s encouraging to see other photogs ministering to others spiritually while teaching their craft. I wish we had workshops like this in the NY area. God bless.

    John - Why are there blessed photographer/business people now, Ansel Adams would cringe at tying your religion into your photography in such a public way, as though you just got outta high school, and got your little clique started as quickly as possible. You don’t see any of the old school photographers blessing everything and everyone every second they get, they just focus on the art of photography. If I were of a belief system different from yours and were looking for a photographer to shoot my wedding I would see that perhaps you would be uncomfortable at my wedding if we prayed to an asteroid or announced that we believed that our religion was the only way to salvation and all others would surely burn in hell (right when you would be looking down the barrel of your camera documenting it). Or if I were simply one of the hundreds of religions around the world that are counter to Christianity, you wouldn’t feel comfortable and I wouldn’t feel comfortable, so why announce this every chance you get? Because you think you are right and everyone else is wrong, period. You are living in a state of delusion.

  • October 30, 2009 - 3:00 pm

    admin - Wow, that’s awfully judgmental.

    Why would I be concerned about what Ansel Adams would think about my viewpoint?

    I do not tie my religion into my photography. First of all, I have no religion (on my better days), and second I couldn’t anymore separate God from my photography any more than I can separate taste from my food, it simply is.

    Why would I want to praise God every chance I get? I suppose if the only reason I was a photographer was to make money, I wouldn’t. I am a photographer because there are people I am supposed to impact that I would never had met had I not been one, that’s it, He could have just as easily made me a chef. What money I make is only a benefit, not an end. I find it odd that you consider bookings as a meaningful argument as to why I would speak about this publicly.

    Regardless, I have shot many weddings where the bride and groom do not claim Jesus as their Messiah. Are you implying that I think less of their commitment because they aren’t “Christians”? That is horribly judgmental, and quite erroneous. I would submit to you this blog post as to how I feel about this.

    It takes guts to post your opinions (however anonymous) in a place that differs form you, and I respect that, however this is not a forum for such discussions. I would gladly discuss this further in email, mine is

    Thanks for stopping by :)

    otto - Absolutely not the place to start this debate ” Farmer John”! Would be interresting to hear what Ansel and the rest of the greats think of that!

Look out ladies, here comes Christian.  He is a senior at Prestonwood Christian Academy.  He is cool. I don’t do a lot of shooting other than weddings, but I love shooting seniors.
