An Epic Summer Road Trip

An Epic Summer Road Trip

Three friends, cameras, lots of coffee, worship music, and the open road. This Summer I had the joy of getting to travel out west with two of my dearest friends. I got to know Amber through church, and through shooting her and her husband’s engagement photos and wedding, and now God’s taking them four hours away from our little Texas hometown. She introduced me last year to Becky, the sweetest Pennsylvania girl turned Texan, who is about to marry the man of her dreams. So grateful for the opportunity to get to visit Arizona, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and West Texas before life takes all of us down different paths.

These girls have been like sisters to me this past year. Always challenging me in my faith and encouraging me to grow closer to Christ. And even after eleven long days on the road together with its share of ups and downs, we’re still the best of friends. Grateful for the daily gifts, big and small, that God brings our way. And the way he orchestrates each area of our lives. Mere photos can’t capture the full story of this trip and all it meant to me. Grateful for a dream come true of a vacation this Summer.

    Gorgeous! Your photos never cease to delight.

    Was there a name for the place with the circular river going around the desert rock/mesa? It looks like a fantastic travel destination!

      It’s called Horseshoe Bend, in Page, Arizona. It was crowded but free to visit! Catch it right before Sunset and wait for the right moment. So worth it!

    Oh, and I had another question. When taking the photo of the barista guy in the coffee shop, did you ask his permission, either before or after taking the photo? What do you typically do when photographing strangers on the street? I’m constantly trying to figure out when it’s appropriate and/or necessary to ask permission when photographing strangers, and doing so always makes me nervous.
