There are some things in life that go beyond our comprehension and understanding. How a young man who was all set to marry the love of his life in two weeks time could be killed in a car wreck, is completely beyond mine. I had the privilege of photographing Mat and Michelle’s Laramie Engagement photo session […]

He would dance the whole time hardly ever taking a break. Deepest thoughts an prayers to the family they and the world have lost a one of a kind brother and man.ReplyCancel
