Heather & Brett // A Watson Farms Wedding

Heather & Brett’s wedding at Watson Farms was so beautiful and glorified God as two of the sweetest people I know began their journey as husband and wife! When Heather first asked me to photograph their wedding, I already knew it was going to be perfect! From the first look to the sunset send off, their day was nothing short of that;Β perfect. Watching Heather’s excitement as she got ready to see Brett was so beautiful, and their first look was simply the sweetest. Heather and Brett, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day! You both are so incredible, and I can’t wait to see how God works in your lives. Enjoy reliving your special day through these photos!

Guatemala 2015 Part 1

I never knew a country could steal my heart so quickly.

DSC_0929

I’ve been on three mission trips now, and God has always worked in amazing ways! This, still, was my first international trip. I had no idea what to expect. To be honest, I didn’t really know what we were going to be doing other than prayer-walking. Within the first day, however, God showed me the schedule for the week. Love. I stepped into the church on our first morning, and was immediately captivated by the joyful faces of the children as we helped serve breakfast to them. We walked on dusty roads and prayed for the people in the small village of Conevisa. When a little girl needed to go home, but wouldn’t leave without us, we walked with her family to their home and loved on each child that followed.

I had never felt happier than I did when two of my closest friends and our translator were in that home playing Chris August and twirling with little girls in our arms.

Courage & Kindness

“Have courage and be kind.” –Disney’s Cinderella

Ever since I first heard that quote, I knew it was a perfect motto to live out. In this life, there are constantly times where we must have courage and trust God, and be kind; loving others as He does.

Β “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

So often we step out the door, yet stay in our comfort zones. We only speak with the people we’re comfortable with or know already. We try to resist the Spirit’s calling to witness to a stranger, because we’re afraid of rejection. It’s hard to live for God when we’re busy in our “comfort bubble”. Yes, that is a real thing. πŸ˜‰ Sometimes God calls us out into uncharted territory or rough seas, and we may become so scared. We can’t see why He would give us more than we can handle. We question God’s will, or His love for us. Yet, He reaches out and leads us through, and in the end, we can see how we’ve grown.

Maybe God is calling you to something outside of your comfort zone. Maybe you are terrified, because you know you can’t do it by your own strength. The good news is, He can. Have courage in knowing that no matter what you face, God is with you with each step.

This past month I was blessed to get to photograph one of my very best friends! Celeste is such a joy to be around, and is truly the kindest girl I know! She just radiates her love for Jesus, and lights up any place with her bubbly personality! Enjoy these photos!

Brooklyn Brown

Silas Scarborough {3 & 4 Months}

Throughout the past month I have been blessed to be able to spend some time photographing sweet Silas Scarborough. Ever since I moved to Thomasville almost 5 years ago, I have looked up to his parents, and Mrs. Brandi has been a great influence to me as an artist. I have loved this sweet boy long before he was even born, and am excited to see what God has in store for him! Silas is full of smiles and giggles, and I hope these photos make you smile too! πŸ™‚

THS Prom 2015

β€œIs any pleasure on earth as great as a circle of Christian friends by a good fire?” -C.S. Lewis

…or in this case, friends on a football field.

Where do I even begin with this group? From laughing with each other, to football & dresses. Each couple were so fun, and their personalities definitely show in the photos! We took “formal” photos downtown, then headed for the football field! I have been SO excited to share these photos, and hope they brighten your Tuesday! Be on the lookout for more prom photos throughout the week!

True Trust

Trusting God. It’s not an easy thing to do, in a world that is constantly telling us to be independent. Yet God calls us to depend on Him.
Psalm 9:10
And those who know Your Name put their trust in You, for You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.”

image

Trusting God is taking a leap of faith to follow His will. Trusting God is following His Word, even when all others don’t.

It’s not worrying about anything, but trusting for God to provide.
It’s seeking God even when we can’t see, and following His plan for our future even when we can’t see it fully. It’s a masterpiece of grace and redemption, a Father with His child; the children relying on the Father to care for them.
We can’t live for God until we let go of the things we hold onto and trust Him. We have to “put off everything that hinders” {Hebrews 12:1} and hold onto our Hope in Christ. Then we can pursue God, trusting Him with each step. It won’t happen overnight, but that is just a part of the beautiful journey. That is truly trusting God.

Blessings,
Moriah
