A Note Of Gratitude For The Kind & Helpful Hearts Of Roberto Valenzuela & Joe Cogliandro

What’s special about being a part of a “community” is seeing how people pull together in times of need. Our wedding photography world for all of it’s amazing images, opulent details, gorgeous dresses and so on, in reality, takes back seat to something even more special, a couple’s love story. Watching two people become one and seeing a new family be born is what it’s all about.

Our photography community is unique because of the relationships that are forged, in good times & in bad, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and health. It was in sickness that we had a need and our phone’s, inboxes & text messages flooded with support. We love the hearts of the people we are blessed to call friends on multiple continents! Little things like availability and timing ruled out some people to help us on an extraordinary wedding.

The bride had put such heart and thought into her day; her groom had loved her for years and years, and they were finally at a point they could “tie the knot.”

When David thinks of the gift that two men gave him by answering the call, he wells up with tears and emotion.

“A true friend freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably.” – William Penn

Beverly Hills Wedding Photographer Roberto Valenzuela and Houston’s Joe Cogliandro are the kind of men who “assist readily”, “boldly adventure”, “take all patiently” and continue to be our friends.

When we were in need, these two gentlemen stepped up to the plate, rearranging their already busy schedules, to make it possible to assist us here in Dallas.

There are only so many ways to say “Thank You!” and we are forever grateful! We want to know if you are ever in need of want or help you can count on the Edmonson’s to be there for you!
