I Heart Faces Photo Contest-Let’s hear it for the boys

This week’s contest over at I Heart Faces is “Let’s hear it for the boys”.  (Anyone else have that Footloose song stuck in their heads now?  Wait….raise your hand if you don’t even know what Footloose is…..)

I just returned from Youth Camp with our church where I was so incredibly blessed to have been asked by one of our “sons” to photograph his proposal.  He was so nervous about doing it, and she had NO idea!  I think the HARDEST part of the whole week was seeing her several times a day and NOT opening my fat mouth and spilling the beans!

But the final day of camp finally came, and Corey was so incredibly nervous, he just DROPPED to his knee before anyone realized it!  If I hadn’t been checking the lighting in this extremely poorly lit cafeteria, I would have completely missed it myself!  LOL

We’ve known and taught Corey since he was a brand new 12 year old in the Youth department, now he’s grown and getting married.  Time sure flies without realizing it.  I’m so blessed to be where God can use me in more ways than I ever imagined!

This was my favorite photo of the entire engagement scene:  she was so overwhelmed, she sobbed all over him….and he just held her close, protective and loving, until she could compose herself in front of the entire church.  The lighting conditions were less than ideal, but it was a breathtaking scene I was blessed to catch.  Sometimes you just know that God is patting you on the head and allowing you to get everything right!

Congratulations, Corey and Kylie!  I can’t wait to do engagement photos….and perhaps wedding photos!  😀  We love you guys!
