Last week photographer Marvell Smith died in a motorcycle accident. Now his colleagues are making sure his work doesn't go unfinished.
“A lot of us local photographers got together and decided to donate our time to cover his weddings for him so the brides and their families as well as his family didn't have to worry about doing the weddings at a time like this,” said Terra Cooper, photographer who knew Smith. “There are hundreds of photographers that have offered to do the photography for the weddings and also the editing after.”
The photographers are donating all the earnings back to Smith's family.
“We all love Marvell so much and that’s why were here doing this for him because we know that he would have done the same for us,” Cooper said.
Smith was also a Department of Corrections parole officer.
