Through my lens: PhotoLettering

I recently discovered this app called PhotoLettering and am currently obsessed. It allows you to add text to your photos, and although it sounds very rudimentary, I’ve been digging through my photo library ever since. I’ve posted a few of my favorites below! Check out the app in the AppStore.









Through My Lens: Rachel and Justin


Today I had the pleasure of taking engagement shots of my best friend, Rachel, and her fiance Justin. I have been so blessed by Rachel’s friendship all these years and am so glad that she has met such a wonderful guy. I am so happy for you two and can’t wait to see what the Lord has planned for you!

Through My Lens: Devin and Kyle’s Wedding

Earlier this summer I had the privilege of seeing one of my best friends from college get married! We traveled out to beautiful Three Rivers, California to see Devin and Kyle tie the knot in a beautiful ceremony. Flanked by gorgeous mountains and overlooking a pond, this wedding was pretty easy on the eyes. I’ve posted just a few of my favorite shots from this picturesque wedding.

“But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.” For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
Mark 10:6-9

Through My Lens: Noah Bryant

This Easter Weekend I had the pleasure of meeting my first nephew, Noah Bryant Crutchfield! He was born just over three weeks ago on March 15, 2012. This little nugget is quickly capturing the hearts of our whole family with his little squirms and squinty eyes.

Check out a few of my favorite photos from this past weekend.


Through My Lens: The Baker Hotel, Mineral Wells, TX

The Baker Hotel opened in Mineral Wells, TX in 1927 in response to the growing popularity of the town’s mineral water. It became an iconic destination for travelers, with the likes of Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Bonnie and Clyde, and various other notables visiting. Earl Baker closed the hotel in 1972, on his 70th birthday, and it has been abandoned ever since. There have been attempts to re-open the hotel to revive what has since become a dying town, however, none of them have prevailed. My design class has had the opportunity to visit the hotel twice now, as it is the site of our senior project. The 13 of us are all designing our projects with the goal of ‘reviving’ the Baker Hotel, and subsequently the town of Mineral Wells, TX. Although our projects won’t be implemented, there is currently a grassroots  campaign to revive the Baker. To learn more about it, visit
