Deanna & JD

Ya know, Jesus is really funny sometimes. 

Some of my favorite moments are when you look back and say "OH I GET IT NOW!" & for a moment you actually understand what's been orchestrated. Well, meeting Deanna was one of those moments. 

Earlier this summer, I was in the Marshall's food section looking for "superfood sales" (i'm a bit of a health nut- more on that later) & happened to be looking in the same section as Deanna. She began asking questions about the powdered peanut butter & how she was planning to make an Easter basket for her new fiancé. We soon realized how many mutual connections we had through organizations, churches, etc. Long story short, we were immediate Facebook friends & soon had an acai date planned. Our talks consisted of Jesus, life goals, future plans, & everything she had planned for her wedding. A couple bumps in the road caused her to postpone her wedding and even change the location. Deanna & JD decided to elope in Maui (if you know me, you know how obsessed I am with Hawaii), and hire ME as the photographer! It's so crazy how faithful & gracious our God is. I'm counting down the days until I get to photograph these beautiful souls in paradise.

For now, here are some of my favorite shots from their engagement shoot.
