I could say so much about these two.  But, really,  the core of them and their lives is to say how much they have blessed people around the world, how they have helped transform lives and especially how they have shown the love of the Lord to so many people.  Miles McPherson and his wonderful wife Debbie never had a traditional wedding.  They were married on a whim in Las Vegas 25 years ago.  So, they decided to renew their marriage vows and to include their family, friends and the Lord.  It was so wonderful to see 2 people who are still so in love after 25 years and 3 kids!   Since the ceremony and reception were pretty short, we took the majority of the photos in the Coronado on the beach…Enjoy!!

My favorite part of the whole day was that their 3 children married them.  They each took a part of the marriage vows, rings, etc. and each wrote and read a letter to each of their parents.  It was a very emotional and touching ceremony.MD105Untitled-1MD247MD308

Then it was off to Coronado Beach for some fun portrait time in some aaaaammmazzing light.  What an good looking fam!MD385miles girlsMD415MD403md beach1MD463hands

As i was trying to set up my next shot, Miles says ” should we run?”  and i said “YES!”  And, this is what we got .LOVE.MD447

So, as i was doing some individual shots, Miles gave me this little series…IT.IS.SO.MILES.  :)miles laughMD477MD438MD550

Debbie, you are fierce- and you worked it…yes, you did :)MD475

Greetings in the name of Our Dear Lord!!!!! This was so awesome to behold!!! You had me in tears. Every picture, told it’s own story. Thank you for sharing. While I do not know Mrs. Debbie, I as a teacher at the Mark Twain Jr High School in Modesto, CA when I invited and was Blessed to have him come talk to a packed assembly of our students some 20+ years ago.

He was a motivational speaker at that time with an organization called something like Athletes for Christ. My memory is not as clear about those days. I was just a teacher wanting to make a difference and concerned about how our children get pulled into the glitz of the “Athletes World”, not realizing all the pitfalls.

It is a Blessing to see how the story has evolved. Now, my daughter and family attend Pastor McPherson’s church as time permits down in San Diego. To the McPherson Family–God’s many Blessings over the next 25+ years!!!!

Blessings to You as well for being an AWESOME Family Friend!!!! God Bless You and your Continued Work on film!!!!! You have a wonderful gift!!!!

My husband just came back from the San Diego 2012 Promise keepers and he said it was great. He especially enjoyed Pastor Mcpherson. I came across your wedding pictures. They are lovely!!
You both look refreshed and renewed. May God continuue to bless your lives as you do His will in the earth.


Beautiful pictures! I really love the dresses! Would you happen to know where the bridemaids’ dresses are from??? I have a friend planning a wedding and she fell in love w/ the gorgeous gowns. :)




I am believing God for my first marriage even though some say I am beyond the time for marriage appeal. But I have FAITH in God and these photos and Miles’ preaching on relationships and marriage have increased my ability to believe.

Thank you for these anointed and beautiful photographs capturing the covenant as God created it to be.


awwww….that was soooo beautiful. thank you for sharing with us. i go to calvary chapel downey and that is where i first saw miles. he was awesome as he still is. the Lord has used and is using him mightily. i am going on 18yrs. of marriage on march 14. we to where married in vegas and have not had a traditional marriage. we had thought maybe at five years but that hasn’t happened. we also have three adorable young teens now. 17, 15, and 12. wow!! to someday (maybe 25yrs also) be able to have a traditional wedding would be a blessing for our family and friends. i just can’t imagine though. time goes by so quick and so many things come up. but i just wanted to say “it can happen” and this has given me something that could be possible for me and my husband and family. miles, continue to share the gospel as you do MY KIDS LOVE YOU and how you share the message. we have been to THE ROCK twice when we have been in san diego. again, my kids love it. anyway that the LORD can use someone to share the good news and for our youth to understand and receive is so awesome. again, thanks for sharing and your wife is and looked so BEAUTIFUL and so blessed. may our GOD continue to bless you, your ministry, your family, and just all you do. GOD BLESS <3
