The day before Linda’s wedding my mom handed me a polaroid picture from August of 1986. It was Linda sitting next to me on the floor of my old dining room… I was opening presents on my 5th birthday. If this doesn’t paint a picture of the memories that were to be shared from that point until now…I don’t know what will… However, I never would have thought that adding to those memories… would be me photographing her wedding day! (CraZy!..I know!)
A little story: Linda & I grew up directly across the street from each other… her sister Lissa used to babysit me when I was a little girl… This was more than a wedding to me… it was FULL of memories… “cheese dip” with fritos! Fifteen minute drives to private school… Linda calling me funny names in Spanish while I chased her around the house trying to get her to tell me what the heck she just called me! (Although…she doesn’t remember this…I remember this clearly!) Ohh..there was one time… we were trying to eaves drop on her mom and dad’s conversation (I think Linda got in trouble) 😉 … so we got a cup…and put it to the wall… to put our ear against it (we must have seen this in movies and thought it must work…) … but being the genius that I *clearly* am… I hit the wall really hard with the cup! Needless to say… Busted! ha! The singing, the tennis, the fun times, the sad times, the happy times… coming to my house to watch tv since they didn’t have one… playing “hide & seek”… or “sno-cone” with dirt, ice cream scoopers, and my real cash register that my dad bought me when I was probably 9 years old (I promise I am not that spoiled anymore! It directly contributed to my entrepreneurial skills! Right dad? He loves me! What can I say?!) Those years can never be replaced! All of this..is why it was sincerely my pleasure… and an absolute honor to capture your day!! I never would have thought growing up… that I’d be a part of such a role… and I am so excited I was able to be a part of it!!
