Monica and Tyler were such troopers as they played in the rain and wind while we took their engagement photos. Johnny and I were so blessed to be able to take these photos at this beautiful barn and log cabin near Beale Air Force Base. The venue where we met was called River Highlands Ranch and Vineyards. It is one of my very favorite wedding venues in Nevada County. Monica and Tyler were enrolled at California Baptist where they were in a few Kinesiology classes together. You would have thought that they would have met in class, but it was not until Tyler’s sister told him about Monica that he took notice of her. Though once he did, Tyler says, “it was as though God opened my eyes and said, ‘there she is, go get her’ ”. Monica and Tyler both have a love and passion for volleyball and teaching P.E…but mostly their common passion is for the Lord. They read the bible and pray together every evening even thought they are separated by hundreds of miles. Thankfully, Tyler is finishing school soon and will join Monica in her home town before long. They hope someday to go on mission trips together to Africa to reach the lost for Christ. They tell me, “We know that we minister better together than separately”.
We am grateful to know them both and to have had the pleasure of taking their memorable engagement photos. Keep a look out for photos of their wedding later this year!
