My friends Brock, Kristi and their son Logan are in the process of planting a church in St. Louis. I took a few family portraits of them for Christmas before they left.

Lindsay & Ethan

Lindsay and Ethan’s wedding was a thrill to film. Not only are they super nice and fun to be around, they love the Lord and wanted to make Him the center of their day. The Gospel was proclaimed throughout the day, as all who attended were reminded of what Christ has done for us, our true bridegroom. My hope and prayer is that you might also discover (or rediscover) the Gospel message that was proclaimed during their special day, and that the Lord will change your life as he has done so for Lindsay and Ethan.

Enjoy! -DL

Liberty University School of Aeronautics

Over the past few months I had the opportunity to create two spots for Liberty’s School of Aeronautics. It was a blast flying with some of the students and flight instructors to get aerial footage. What impressed me the most was the professor and flight instructors’ hearts for their students. They all have a deep desire for their students to be excellent pilots, and to show their students how much Jesus loves them. I think you’ll feel the same after watching this video. Enjoy! -DL

Everglades | Spring Break

This spring break I went to Florida with my family to visit my grandparents. One day I visited my buddy Bryce, who was home for spring break. Last summer when we went  to the Everglades, there weren’t many gators out. This time however was much different :) Enjoy! -DL








My Hummingbird

On the Fourth of July I was sitting in the backyard talking to my grandparents when all of a sudden I saw this little thing buzzing around. It turned out to be a beautiful little humming bird sipping up the nectar in the flowers. I grabbed my camera, waited a little while for it to come back and snapped this shot. Its so crazy to think that they can flap their wings up to 90 times per second! Enjoy! -DL

The Everglades

I recently went to Florida to be in my buddies’ wedding. The day after the wedding my friend Clayton and I met up with my friend Bryce, who lives in Florida. We had an awesome afternoon in the Everglades and Key Largo. We got to see some gators and other little critters in the wild. Enjoy! -DL

Beautiful Norway

I just returned from an incredible trip to Norway. I have wanted to visit for several years, but hadn’t had the opportunity to do so until now. Norway is absolutely stunning! The beauty in the cities, countryside, ocean, and fjords is breathtaking. Here are some photos from my trip. Enjoy! -DL
