In Memory of Mat and His Love For Michelle


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 a few months ago and remember how Mat kept us all in stitches the whole time.

He had the gift of making people laugh and smile, he was a vibrant, funny, kind, amazing person and my heart aches for his fiancé’ Michelle and his family, knowing their loss is incomprehensible.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, there are no words needed to convey how much Mat adored Michelle and how their love story was no ordinary one, you can see it in his eyes as he looked at her and how much she loved him back..




My deepest condolences go out to his family and to Michelle.

The world has became a little dimmer, sadder place without him.
