When I asked if I could take photos on the weekends, this place I call home blessed me with a “yes.” I am forever grateful for the chance to practice and grow, for the gift of capturing moments of worship and community, for the opportunity to serve, and for the abilities God is slowly but surely growing in me through it all.
Since asking that question, I have grown and mentored a team of photographers that cover every weekend experience at Encounter as well as special events.
The staff at Providence made me feel like one of their own on a gorgeous summer morning in June. Dean showed up in a tie-dye, cut-off tank after specific instructions from the man in charge on what (not) to wear. Luckily he brought a change of clothes… But seriously, I love this team. This crew is always ready for a laugh!
Sweet new logo means new merch! It was awesome to gather people who love Encounter and showcase them on the website!
Donuts to celebrate dad’s? I like their style. Providence is a fantastic community of believers in Holland, Michigan and I loved getting the chance to capture what God is up to! They welcomed me with open arms and hot coffee. What more could a gal ask for?
GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN
The staff at Encounter needed new staff photos, and GR got a new mural! Perfect match. This church is passionate about it’s core value to #lovewherewelive so showcasing a local piece of art seemed like a fantastic way to honor that dedication.
