When I was 15 I made a spur-of-the-moment decision to go to Guatemala on a missions trip. During the trip I would spend 10 days working at an orphanage, distributing food to the hungry and teaching English. I had no idea how drastically those 10 days would change the course of my life. I was shocked. I was broken. I was compelled to do something about all the hurt, pain and poverty I saw. When I was 18 I decided to go to school to study Bible and Theology, intending on moving to a third world country to start a relief program or organization. At 21 I received an offer to move to Denmark to teach leadership ethics and begin leading teams of young adults (many were my age and older) to poverty stricken countries in order to raise awareness. From the time I was 15, I have been doing whatever I can to raise awareness and offer support to those who are much less fortunate. When I started my photography business, I knew it had to serve a greater purpose than just taking pictures. In the beginning of 2011 we launched a campaign and partnership with Thirst Relief, deciding to donate 10% of all wedding investments to the organization. Since then, it has blown me away how much my clients have embraced this mission and goal. It is my hope and prayer that I am able to be a bridge between clients who want a make a difference and those who are in need.
