Caleb & Victoria... I met both of these amazing individuals through our youth ministry.  Caleb played the drums, and Victoria served through Master's Commission.  When I heard they started dating, what great news this was!  I never knew they even had interest in one another, so it was very sweet to see them together, and of course, when their engagement was announced, we knew that it was going to be BEST wedding ever!  But, then we heard another news... news that you don't hear everyday.  News that are so hard to believe.... News that make your whole community come together.  An accident occurred to Caleb last year while he was trying to help someone on the road.  A kind act that shattered his leg... so badly that it got amputated.  It was very tragic, but the greater testimony was how they handled it and overcame and are still overcoming the challenges and rejoicing in them at the same time.  This couple has inspired so many about how to love unconditionally and before their marriage has even begun, their love for one another has been so inspiring and admirable.  Their faith is like solid rock... Nothing can shake them.  Because of these circumstances, we had to postpone some planning, and when I got to meet them to talk about their wedding day and photography, I just couldn't believe the journey that they have already gone through and how incredible their future is going to be.  It made me reflect on my marriage as well and how we really need to be thankful for each day... you really never know what tomorrow may bring.  We're so honored to be photographing their upcoming wedding next month and are so grateful that they are excited for us to capture the memories even more so because our girl is going to be their flower girl!  My wife is very excited about that!  :)  Caleb & Victoria, enjoy your engagement photos... We know that you will cherish them!  You guys are beautiful people that made my job easy.  Your wedding is going to be gorgeous!
