This event almost didn’t happen. The weather wasn’t cooperating a few days before and the chances of rain were looming hours before our event benefiting our friend, Phong. Fearing the chances of rain, some people cancelled. But those who believed in the event came through and filled those spots immediately! Everyone showed up….ready for some holiday images and that they got….
We just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us so far in raising funds. Our amazing friends, family, colleagues in the photography industry, and our fantastic brides and grooms have all stepped in. We’ve raised nearly $5000 for Phong and An and this will help them so much with their medical expenses as Phong recovers. Phong’s health continues to improve each day. The swelling in his brain has gone down and he has been stabilized enough to leave the ICU and transfer to another hospital for more care. It’s amazing to see how he has progressed over this past week. Phong is definitely a fighter with a strong will to live. We continue to keep our faith and know he will pull through.
A BIG HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who participated in our fundraiser. We seriously planned this out in less than a week and we are just stunned by how much support we have received. We photographed many of our friends and also new families who came to us through other networks. To the 50+ people we photographed on Saturday and to those who dropped by and donated – you all play a huge part in Phong’s recovery. So THANK YOU!!!
