Congrats to David & Julia....

Last Saturday i had the great privilege to shoot my brother David's wedding. It was a really small (and i do mean small ceremony). There was no wedding party and it was only immediate family at the ceremony. I am incredibly honored to be considered family and was able to attend, better yet i got to shoot it. They were married in this nice little garden at the Fairmont Hotel. Now.....i dont usually get sentimental but being that this is my blog and i can do whatever i want with it im going to get sentimental now. Its very rare to meet great people on this journey that last for no more than a blink of an eye. It seems even more rare to meet people in this world that can see the good in others and are willing to open their lives and home and take a chance on someone just to make a difference. In my life there has been no greater (human) influence than the Coulters, in a time when i was just learning about God still letting go of my past life and when most people believed that i would be a failure in life......they were the ones who took a chance on me. To this day i cannot comprehend what they were able to see in me, but when no one else wanted to take that chance they opened up their lives and their home to me and called me son. They have encouraged and supported me beyond all measure and comprehension and are truly one of the biggest reasons why im able to pursue my dream now. In a world were caring for one another is nothing more than a dying virtue it is refreshing to know that there are a few still in it that can give people hope. Mom and Dad to you i owe a debt that can never be repaid, Danny and David you two are truly my brothers in this world and thank you for your amazing influence in my life. Julia, i cannot think of a better woman for David, welcome to the family. Some people are privileged enough to keep in touch with those who influence them greatly, i am blessed beyond all measure to call them family.
