14 years ago - I wasn’t married, I wasn’t a mom, I wasn’t a wedding photographer.
14 years ago - just days before I began my second semester of college, I lost my mother to cancer. It was a moment that forever changed me as a person and my entire life.
Fast forward to 2014, I was exactly in your shoes. I was planning my very own wedding day with my wife. I was excited! I was overwhelmed! But most of all … I was lost not having her by my side through one of the most important days of my life (outside my sons birth).
It was that very moment, I saw the true meaning of what a photograph holds. I felt peace looking at her portraits. I knew she was still such a huge part of my day. Trust me there was signs all day long!
Without prints, I would never be able to tell those forgotten memories of my mother. He would never know the infamous big, gummy smile she had that completely lit a room up.
He … wouldn’t know her legacy.

More than anything, I don’t want you to spend your day worrying … wondering whether or not those fleeting, once in a lifetime moments were documented.
