Chad and Amy met in the wildest of circumstances. Chad, a Kansas native had taken his discipleship training school (DTS) with YWAM Herrnhut and was working on staff leading the photography school. A lovely Aussie by the name of Amy also chose Herrnhut to be her DTS home and in the craziness of school and outreaches, they met. It was in this tiny town in East Germany that a passion for rescuing and serving victims of sex trafficking began to stir in their hearts, and simultaneously a deep love and mutual respect began to grow between them. On their journey to save the world, these two amazing human beings unexpectedly found a partner in crime and best friend for life.
With their family and friend scattered all over the globe, Chad and Amy decided to have a destination wedding in Santa Barbara, CA overlooking the beach. It was the perfect location for everyone to come, relax, enjoy the sights, and celebrate their love. I felt completely honored to be asked to photograph their wedding…. for multiple reasons, but mostly because I have so much respect for them, the life of service they’ve chosen to live, and the sheer talent they demonstrate in their creative fields. Here is the highlight reel from the day…. so many great moments….
Chad and Amy, thanks for including me in such a special day. I admire you both so much and my prayers go with you to Budapest as you start your lives together and begin a new chapter in ending sex trafficking. Keep pressing on and saving the world!
