San Diego Engagement Photographer - Emily and Braden

dear God...

carlie & i have always both been curious at the oddity of starting a prayer in this manner. are we merely writing an oral letter to our Creator? or is it simply habit to transition into communication with Him?

whatever the reason, we realize that He is up to something. and whether your spiritual belief's align with ours, or not, i have a hunch that the art of story tugs at your heart strings like it does ours. it just so happens that our belief is one that our God is an artful story-teller, and intentional in his writings.

and, i know that emily & braden would agree. emily & braden are passionate people, who look back at the series of moments that have accumulated over the past few years, leading to this moment and time, and shake their heads in awe. emily & braden are thankful people, adventurous people, intentional people. thank you both, emily & braden, for the invitation to your story. we can't wait to see what God has in store...

in the mean time, here are some of the photographs we captured, with emily & braden.

  18. Stunning! I must say, that I am enthralled and tickled with your blurb about God. It both inspires me and comforts me as I pursue this art in a world that grows far from acknowledging a loving God...you two rock!
