Cody and Mindy are celebrating five years of marriage this weekend (June 18th to be precise), and I was so honored to photograph this milestone for them.
I first got to know Mindy a little over a year ago through this wonderful thing called The Rising Tide Society. She is a fellow photographer, so we've shot weddings together on occasion over the past year, and she's become someone I feel blessed to call a friend.
Macaroons are one of Mindy's very favorite things, so naturally they made an appearance at their photoshoot. Because what celebration would be complete without macaroons from the always delightful Pistacia Vera?
You should know, wine of any kind is not Cody's favorite thing, so when they toast, Mindy cracks open the bubbly and Cody pops open a Mountain Dew. Mindy did make him try a little sip of hers again, just to be SURE he didn't like it. He was less than impressed, and opted to stick with his Dew.
Hey there! I'm Deborah Grace, and this little space you've stumbled into is a peek into my world, and into the world of those who've allowed me into their stories . I'm a photographer, an artist, a storyteller, and a dreamer. I adore the way photography has afforded me the opportunity to glimpse into people's stories. People are beautiful, imperfect, messy and wonderful. I think most times we just need to know that we're doing okay at this life thing. That's why I take photos. I think people often miss the beauty of their own stories because they're in the middle of them. I think my lens is basically just a gift God put in my hands to help others see how wonderful they really are, and that their stories matter. I always feel like the lucky one because I am. Getting to hear your messy, imperfect, hilarious, one-of-a-kind adventure-of-a-story never fails to convince me that in spite of everything, God is making something really beautiful out of all of us. And that inspires my socks off every time. So yes. I'm the lucky one who gets an in to the beautiful stories that people are. I love new friends so drop me a line if you'd like to connect. -xoxo
