I love taking pictures. Love it. I also happen to love looking at great photography. Stuff that moves me and makes me look twice. But whether I’m looking at beautiful light, a couple in love, or incredible scenery, I’m not marveling at the picture, I’m marveling at God’s glory. This is the attraction to photography for me. This is really what gives me a greater appreciation for it all, when I know it’s all just a whisper of how awesome He is.

Katie and I have known Alex for a while now. She moved to Africa a year ago where she met Odwa. You can read more about their story here on Green Wedding Shoes
