Recently one of my friends passed away. He was a young guy full of energy and love for all the people he knew. I was asked to shoot his memorial service, held at a local skatepark. Over 200 people came to show their love and support for his family. RIP Adam Matthew Stokes 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 When she started speaking i lost it. 19 When the family asked me to shoot it, of course i said, it would be my honor. I didnt realize how hard it would be on me to see all my friends crying and just mourning for him. It really got to me. It reminds me that Life is too short. He was only 24. I hope to touch as many lives as he did. I have never seen so many people show up to a memorial service that was not related to the person. I dont really know why i am posting this. But to me having so many show up to one persons service, inspires me. So i thought id share. most are shot with 5d 16-35. Some natural light stuff was 1dmkiiN and sigma 50 1.4.
