I had the absolute privilege of photographing this amazing couple a few weeks ago. Their faith and trust in God has truly been a blessing for me to witness.
Two years ago, a house fire should have claimed their lives. But by the power of prayer and the grace of God, they are alive today to tell their truly miraculous story of Gods provision and supernatural healing in their lives. They were recently featured on the 700 Club so if you'd like to see more of their story, I'll post the link below. Amanda is also working on a book that will go into more detail about all the ways that the Lord provided for them throughout this horrific journey. God has great things in store for their future and I know that their story is going to touch the lives of many, many people and help build faith and hope in a world that is hurting.
Here are some images from my session with them. I knew I needed an epic location to highlight the magnitude of their love for each other and for the Lord. We drove about an hour up into the mountains outside of Molalla, Oregon (Amanda's hometown) to capture these stunning sunset views.
Jason had 3rd degree burns on more than 93% of his body. The doctors did not think he would live through the night. They thought he would spend upwards of two years in the burn unit if he did survive. But 2 months to the day after the fire, Jason walked out of the hospital.
"Nothing missing, nothing broken" just like Amanda had spoken over him from the very beginning. His healing has truly been miraculous and although they will always have the scars, I know their faith is stronger, their love for each other is stronger, and what satan meant to steal from them, God is using for His glory.
Jason and Amanda, thank you for blessing me with the opportunity to document your love for each other in photographs. It is a pleasure and an honor to call you friends and I'm so excited to continue to watch your journey unfold. You have such a powerful testimony and I can't wait to see how God is going to bless you as you spread His good news to others.
