Leading The Way With Irrational Generosity {A Personal Post}

Last year, I felt led by God to give a couple with wedding photography. You can read about that here:  http://kristinagainesphotography.com/blog/2014/03/richness-in-what-matters-most-a-personal-post/

What I wanted most was to bless someone else. What I didn’t know, was how amazing it was going to be for myself as well. I left Jacob and Katelyn’s wedding feeling so full of love. Blessing them had also been such a blessing to me. Fast forward almost a year, Im happy to report that they are expecting their first child. I couldn’t be happier for a sweet and deserving couple.     It has been heavy on my heart these past few weeks to bless another couple with wedding photography and without hesitation, my answer is yes. Again, I don’t know anything about this couple but I can’t wait to hear their story.

KG1_1155If you are someone or know someone who would be blessed by the gift of wedding photography, I would love to connect with them by contacting me. Please send the wedding date and a short blip about your relationship and wedding plans.   At our church, one of our core values is to lead the way with irrational generosity. We believe it is more blessed to give than to receive. Blessing someone with wedding photography is only a small way that I can give back to someone else and I can’t wait to see what God has in store.KG1_1527KG1_1811

I’m nt sure if you remember me talking about my roommate yesterday, but she is also recently engaged. Their wedding date is July 18. She has been the biggest influence for me spiritually and desires for her wedding to be nothing but glorifying to God. She broke down a couple of weeks ago and decided not to have a wedding due to the lack of money, but after prayer and the encouragement of friends she realized the significance of a wedding ceremony. She is not currently planning on hiring a photographer because she wants to make sure the money she does have is used in a way that glorifies God rather than herself. But I know she loves your photography and we be so appreciative of this gift. She will be getting married in Tulsa. Thanks for any consideration!! It’s so encouraging to see you do this!

Hi Kristina, my wedding date is 6-27-15, at a new place called Majestic Pines in Newcastle. I would love to have you do my wedding photos as your giveaway, because I am so thankful that God has given me another chance at love and happiness.

I am a single mom of three amazing kids whom god blesses with. I prayed for children and god answered my prayers through adoption. And now I have another wonderfull blessing a wonderful man who loves my children as his own. He proposed to me on Christmas with my family dancing for joy. I would be so extremely blessed to have photographs of our special day.

Winter is upon us and while most days are nice and chilly, it makes for the perfect opportunity to cuddle up and capture some gorgeous portraits. Love these two and this sweet love session.
