Gary + Mary and Demetrius + Sasha | Building Community Through Photography

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

I came up with the concept of Building Community Through Photography in 2007 while I was writing the material for my first workshop - Experience KNIGHT. I wanted the workshop to be more than people just coming to learn about the basics of photography. Instead, I wanted to build relationships with a diverse group of people that were ready to impact the world and support one another's growth. My dream is now a reality.

After 5 workshops we are having a reunion in Charleston next weekend for the graduates and I thought it would be a good idea to have a project where we blessed two lucky couples with a FREE engagement session.


The Winners have been selected:

Gary + Mary

Gary grew up in Atlanta while Mary hails from the small town of Nottoway, VA. They met close to 5 years ago at a lounge north of Atlanta. On March 26, 2009 under a starlit skyline Gary got down on bended knee and asked Mary to be his wife. A teary-eyed Mary said, "Yes!" Through the tough financial trials of their relationship both have managed to keep a smile on their faces and a youthful spirit. The couple enjoys free time watching movies, playing with their dog (Max), and window shopping at the mall. They plan to wed next year in March.


Demetrius + Sasha

In the winter of 2007 Sasha drove 12 hours with a cast on her leg and $30 to her name to see Demetrius. Now that is love! Demetrius and Sasha are military brats and grew up in different states and countries: Alabama, California, the Netherlands, Mississippi, Virginia, and Germany. They met in 2004 at a church dinner and became a couple in early 2007. The long distance relationship they maintain has been a challenge to say the least. They have faced hardships with health and finances but their spiritual foundation and unconditional love has carried them through it all. Having only been on one "real date," they are totally excited about the photo shoot in Charleston.


Please join me in congratulating these two couples and pray for an exceptional photo shoot next weekend to document their love!
