Joshua & Karris Farris

Joshua & Kariss are creative entrepreneurs and educators who help people take better photos, create better films and build profitable businesses that change lives. They started as two college kids madly in love with barely any knowledge about photography or building a creative business. After spending a few years working in corporate America, Joshua & Kariss realized that their calling was capturing images and using their voice to turn those around them towards the Lord. Through long hours and lots of faith, they turned their passion into one of the most successful, fastest-growing photography businesses in America’s fourth-largest city! They’ve photographed numerous celebrity weddings, had their work featured in People, Huff Post, VH1, and many other national and international publications and media outlets. It is God’s faithfulness that has carried them through this journey and it is His goodness that will forever be the theme of their testimony.


Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams is a GRAMMY Award-winning singer/songwriter, actress, entrepreneur, designer, television host and member of one of the most successful recording groups of all time, Destiny’s Child. Michelle puts her passion for mental health and empowerment to work as an ambassador for the Office on Women’s Health, where she fosters awareness for staying healthy in body and soul through nutrition, exercise, and proper medical care. Her new memoir, “Checking In: How Getting Real About Depression Saved My Life—and Can Save Yours” is slated to release in May 2021.
