Gracehaven and ComFest

ComFest was this weekend in Columbus. Some friends put together an outstanding benefit for Gracehaven House. Gracehaven offers a safe home, hope, and healing for girls that have been forced into exploitation. Praise God for what they are doing to help!

The benefit raised money for Gracehaven. Very cool. It also got the word out for Gracehaven, their work, and their mission to end this sort of exploitation. Even cooler. And through it all, a lot of people had a great time. Here are some pictures of the scene Friday evening:

Summer Clouds

It felt like summer to me last Saturday night. Graduation for my students that morning and a graduation party that afternoon. The party was out in the country. Horses, barns, and wind in the trees. As we were leaving the clouds were amazing over the farm. Megan patiently waited in the car as I renewed my love for my 20mm lens. Here are some of my favorites:

Photographer's Note: Took some fun freedom with these. Simply jpegs, not RAW. sRGB, not Adobe RGB. Messed a bit with contrast, added some warm tone, shot really wide angle, and even did some vignetting. Feels fun to shoot for fun and break all of my rules.

Memorial Day

We had a great memorial day weekend. New puppies, family, lake house, boating, swimming, whiffle ball, and some sweet sweet ribs. Here are pictures of some of the highlights:

Amy and Mike

What a beautiful couple Amy and Mike are. Full of laughs and lots of fun, we had a great time with them in Michigan a few weeks ago and look forward to their wedding this summer. Here are a few from their engagement shoot:
