Who is this guy

Whats up guys! My name is John and I'm obviously the owner and photographer for Inspire Me Imagery. Why else would this be up here, right? First and foremost, I'd just like to take this moment to explain some things. It should be obvious at this point that I love shooting weddings, but my real passion is corny jokes. Yes, I know, I'm "that guy", but lets #realtalk for a moment. I'm a young father and really need to step up my dad jokes so don't hold it against me. Ask me about the grape that got stepped on sometime. Most of my life I have had a fascination with religious studies, people's personal freedoms of choice, and I have an unquenchable love for nature and the outdoors. I spend way too much time getting lost in the woods, and for me, it's the best way to me to ground myself and clear my head before a wedding day. My wife and son are everything to me, and if you look over at me while a groom is dancing with mom, you'll probably see me at some point have to look away because I can't help but see my own wife and son on his future wedding day. I get all misty eyed about it, DON'T JUDGE ME!!

 

What did the grape say when it got stepped on?
Nothing, it just let out a little wine.
It really is a lot of fun, and very freeing, to do some random out of the blue shoots. I had the chance to hang out with Manda in the woods and just get lost for awhile. Lauren and I had a lot of fun shooting and had the chance to try out a few different posing techniques, some lighting, and just a general freedom to explore photography a bit more. Things like this help us out a lot with wedding days since we try to make the most of out time and don't want to "mess around". Random shoots like this help us to hone things a bit so when it comes time to doing these lighting techniques and poses, we don't have to spend a lot of time tweaking things. It helps let things move more freely and flow more naturally. So yea, If you ever want to come out and randomly shoot with us, let us know!

My son Holden and I. 

My wife is a beautiful woman. I love her to death because I know she is the one that will always have my back. I took a big leap of faith quitting my job and starting down this path. She was there for me and supported me. I think the most important thing I've learned about her, is that she will always be the one that will wade onto the battlefield of life with me. Sword held high, guarding my back when life surrounds us with enemies. Someone I can trust to hold the line when a tidal wave of toddler temper tantrums comes down on us. She is the reason we have a happy home, She is the reason I am who I am, and she is the reason I am where I am. Nicole, thank you so much for everything you are, and everything you do.  ~<)
