Snyder:: Family

Rosy, Neil, Thomas and I met up in the old downtown Littleton.

The day before Thanksgiving, shops were bustling with people, and we were able to take pictures right before the sun went down.

Loved getting to meet Thomas for the first time!
He was all smiles and giggles even after a long drive from the Springs.

Anthony + Chizobam:: Married

One of a kind, to be sure.

Colorful outfits - head to toe, the main language that was being spoken I did not understand and traditions I had never heard of.

Yet, there were those elements that are universal: the contagious laughs, respect for the grandparents and elders, traditional ceremony, family that flew from the other side of the world, and love that connected it all.

It was so much fun being the second photographer for Anthony and Chizo's day.

American/Nigerian Wedding:

The presentation of the "kola" nuts.  The oldest men in the room break the nut and offer a prayer or a blessing to the new couple.
