CATES WEDDING

A beautiful story of true love, in and out. I met Zach and Malerie many years ago at one of the first weddings I ever filmed. They have now been a part of two weddings that I’ve been honored to capture, so for their wedding I got to do something unique as a result. I found some old footage of them from the past weddings and incorporated them into the intro of their story in their own wedding video. I feel it is a special element, just for them, as they have been a part of many other friend’s weddings, and now this is theirs. Their story is beautiful, and the love for one another is very evident. I honestly feel incredibly blessed to have been given the honor to capture Zach and Malerie’s wedding day, well spent with beautiful friends and family. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did in creating it.

Burkel Wedding

In November of 2018, this stunning couple got married in the beautiful town of Pensacola, Fl. This was my first wedding to film in that area, and I can say, it did not disappoint! The history of that town just added to the uniqueness and beauty, of this celebration. The love that Holly and Gregg have for one another is undeniable and obvious as you watch this highlight of the day. Thanks for giving me such an honor to capture two incredible people. I pray and hope this reminds you both of the decision you both made that lovely day, and helps you walk through any tough times that may come. Enjoy reliving such a wonderful day!

The Creatures of our World

Gotta love the Zoo!! My friends and I decided to travel north to visit the Cincinnati Zoo for a day! What a day! We got to see so many different types of animals and just take a moment of getting away from all the stress of school. It was a day to take a moment and be thankful for the people God has put in our lives and enjoy the creatures He had molded.

and school begins…

My senior year at Asbury has begun! I can’t believe it’s finally here! I will soon have a major in Media Communications with an emphasis in Multimedia. Real life, I’m coming for you. I have left my hometown of Niceville, Florida where I sail and longboard, headed North to landlocked state of Kentucky. The best part of living in Kentucky is there are actually mountains, hills, and elevation! That is just unheard of in Florida. The largest hill we have are ant hills…Red River Gorge, I’m on my way. When starting off a year, everyone has their goals. My goal this year is to take the time management lesson I learned this summer and take it with me in all my classes. I am taking 6 classes of 17 credit hours, so that will definitely come in handy.

My knowledge in technology is somewhere between “I’m not stupid” and “I’m not an expert”. I’ve been learning about film since I was a junior in high. Yes that is a long time, but I am a slow learner, there is much more for me to learn and I’m not sure I’ll ever know everything. I did create an app last year where I learned  a lot about coding. In high school I was on our Robotics team where I learned coding, mechanics and construction. I do know an extensive amount on technology, it would take a while to explain everything I do know, but again that is not to say I know everything, far from it really.

One of the classes I am taking this semester is Interactive Media II. I took it because I wanted to learn more about the different Adobe products like Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop. Honestly, every semester that I’ve been at Asbury, I’ve learned so much. Things I never even expected to learn. This year I’m excited to grow and learn what God has planned to teach me whether it be a hard or easy lesson.

Senior year…Let’s Go!

Counselor Round 2

I miss them. I MISS them. I MISS THEM!!! My wonderful kiddos have left the kountryside. This group of girls were such a blast! They were spunky, silly, crazy, up for anything!! This was a term of crazy memories like flash mobs, pranks, sweet conversations, learning how to be a friend, and most importantly there were kids coming to know Christ! These two weeks I will forever cherish in my heart. On top of all that, I got to know two sweet, amazing women of God, who taught me so much of what it looks like to shine God’s light. Annielaurie and Corinne were always there to listen and speak truth into my life. I am just so grateful to have met them! Along with the rest of the kountryside staff who continued to encourage our girls and love on them so much! And that they continued to encourage me everyday ad I am forever grateful! And for my next adventure, I will be the filmmaker!! Here goes 🙂

Kampout!

What an experience!! The kamp I work for takes their kamp on the road in which I was so blessed to be a part of. We traveled all the way to College Station, TX…a 14 hour drive! Well after 14 hours of intention conversations and falling asleep on shoulders, you really get to know the group of people you are traveling with 🙂 Kampout! is basically an intensely hype VBS. My co-counselor Zoë and I had four kids, seeing as the ratio was two to one, we got to know them very well. They were so much fun with a week full of jumping around, laughter, filming, and moments of wonder. We also had this spunky, fun loving junior counselor who actually took most of these pictures 🙂 She was learning how to use my camera so I let her go an take picutres. Chloë is very talented and it was so much to watch her have a passion for photography. Being someone who loves photos, I love getting to teach people and watch them grow.  Zoë, Annalisa, and I got the amazing blessing of having a wonderful host family who loved on us, taught us so much, and were even up for taking silly sunset jumping pictures, which in my book makes them incredible! 😀 Next on my summer agenda comes being a counselor for two more weeks!!!

Freshman Formal

It was a night of dancing, excitement, laughter, adventure and releasing beautiful lanterns. I felt like I was living real life Tangled! It was a dream, magical even. Watching the lanterns whisk away into the sky reminded me of the beauty this world has alongside the mystery. We continue to see the beauty God creates and how massive He is. Every day He reveals more beauty to me in little ways just as these lanterns.
