Now that you have met Jorge and Diana I can let you know a little something about them. They know how to throw a party. Jorge and Diana had a wonderful reception filled with love and joy and fun.
After having family and friends give speeches and share memories the couple shared a first dance. Jorge and Diana were surprised by a Mariachi band. As the evening progressed dancing was a major player. Everyone was out on the dance floor and having a great time. Jorge and Diana left quietly without any fanfare. It was really sweet to see them leave and start their life together.

The American Heart Association has hosted a run/walk for the past four years. It is a wonderful event which raises money and awareness for heart disease and stroke. This year the event was held at Sugarhouse Park. It was a beautiful fall morning. You couldn’t ask for better weather.
I was asked to photograph stroke survivors as well as some of the events going on at the event. I was so touched and grateful for my health as I spoke with people who just a few months ago were unable to walk and in some cases unable to talk. I was inspired by those who have overcome and survived. It gave me hope and a little (a lot of) perspective that I can tackle what life throws my way.
The finals took place on July 30 at 4pm. It was warm outside and the sun was shining. I knew the sun out equaled a good thing for me since the club has skylights and I needed all the light I could get. It was an exciting match that included a medical time out to take care of a bleeding knee. I wasn’t sure if the match would ever start back up again but after a lot of pressure and bandages the two finalists got back in the court and finished a great match. Julian Illingworth won 3 games to 1 against Shawn Delierre.

The semi finals were a bit easier to shoot. I’m not sure what it was exactly but my camera seemed to just work better and read the light easier.
My friend M’kynzi came and watched. She had never seen squash before and I don’t think she was disappointed. I for one felt like she got her money’s worth.
There was a lot going on in this round and bonus: my favorite shot of the tournament came from it.
Favorite shot of the tournament…

This week The Squashworks has hosted the Salt Lake City Squash Open. While I don’t play squash I definitely enjoy and appreciate the game.
This year I am photographing the event. I have always loved sports photography and have been grateful for this awesome opportunity. There are plenty of pictures to go around and I will be posting them all as soon as I catch up. For now I will only post a sneak peek. It is one of my favorite images from the tournament so far.
