Mindi and Bryan engaged! {oklahoma city engagement photographer}

We first met Bryan & Mindi in 2007 when they first came to our church (Calvary Chapel OKC). The year was 2007, Bryan was 20, Mindi was 19 and I immediately loved these kids! Bryan reminded me so much of myself, at 20 years old giving up his life in California, to move 1,500 miles to be with the girl he loved. And much like me, they met in an airport :)

With their lives set apart to serve God, Bryan & Mindi have made a powerful impact on the next of youth. Some of my favorite worship ever was when they would lead worship for our Sunday night youth group. No microphones, amps, or projectors, just two hearts set on worshiping God. Now the time has come when they will finally have those two hearts joined together to worship God as one.

You can also follow the journey of Bryan & Mindi on their blog:

WOW! What beautiful pictures! But with such a beautiful couple, it would be hard not to get great pictures, right! :) I believe there is a little lighthouse in couple pictures that holds some meaning to me and my little one. Hopefully, it was a little warmer for you two!
