Easter Sunday 2008

At the Rock Church in Point Loma 8, 10, and 12 services…

Being signed on with the photo ministry has been an amazing blessing and will definitely be a huge help in so so many ways… Really great and beautiful people are involved in the ministry and I am really excited to see where it will all take me… =)

Easter Sunday was an intense shooting day filled with so many moments and frames that it was overwhelming… and because of multiple moments, you are inevitably going to miss some… and the ones I WAS able to pull my camera up for were EXTREMELY challenging… not necessarily for framing (although that’s tough too) but for the low light – and the lights you do get are multi-colored beams blowing up in your face… metering is practically impossible… but it was a really great learning experience for shooting events, concerts, and low-light…

As far as what I was able to capture – even more blessings… here is a sample of the day… enjoy!








The morning was really nice and it was crazy to see people lined up around the block to get into church! Lot’s of favorites in this shoot… Indoors, shooting was really really tough – but I got a few shots to work with…








Hey! You can dance in church! I love it! =) The Rock Steady Dance Team was pretty good and they got an awesome reaction from the audience… So clean!





The next shot is actually from the Good Friday Praise Concert and the rest are a few more ‘artsy’ shots of Easter Services =)






The church community is amazing.. it’s made up of all sorts of people – different races, ages, families, all in different stages in life… it is really a blessing to be a part of it and to capture the day… just the amount of people that dedicate themselves to Christ, service after service, is staggering… God is truly moving in this Church…

I will also say that I love the fact that they had so many different pieces for the Easter and good Friday services… gospel choir, great voices, hip-hop dancin (really crazy! And they are pretty good too!), children’s choir, the Katina’s on Good Friday, and UFC MMA Fighter Diego Sanchez sharing his testimony on Good Friday… and photography ministry! You can’t help it – there is always a place here for you to Do Something… =)
