About five years ago, I signed up for one of the most intense Bible studies I had ever done. Before that point, I’d often found myself pretty intimidated and overwhelmed by studies. One of my best friends and I committed to going to this Beth Moore Esther study and in so, so many ways it changed my life. (That’s one amazing study, I tell ya, and I highly encourage any woman looking for something challenging and uplifting to consider doing it. I’d like to go through it again.) One amazing aspect of doing the study was that my friend and I knew no one else we were studying with, but we were loosely assigned to tables to meet other women and chat each week.
One of the women I met was Karen, a sweet, sweet soul who listened and encouraged so well. Over the years we’ve been Facebook friends, but imagine my delight when she would call me to photograph her daughter, Holly’s, bridal session. It was such a joy to see Karen again and I loved meeting Holly. So thankful for Holly and her mom trusting me to photograph this session for them.
