This family holds a really special place in my heart. Ruth and I were class mates in high school. We were in marching band together. After high school, we parted ways as life has a tendency to do. We reconnected on Facebook, which is such a wonderful tool for doing just that. She contacted me for her wedding and confided in me even though I was just starting out. You see, I had a lot of experience second shooting and assisting. I had one wedding before Ruth + Mark's, but still kinda green. It was such a special day, intimate with only her closest family and friends. It was a perfect day.
So when she told me that she and Mark wanted family photos and if I would be visiting soon so we could set it up, if not, to refer other photographers to her. I gasped and said, "There is no way another photog is taking photos of this family, they're mine!" Luckily, she felt the same way :). I have the best clients!
We set it up during my visit at the Getty Museum. Such a great place to run, laugh, play, and have a good time!
Thank you Ruth, Mark, and little Markie for playing with me and catching up! I wish you guys many, but oh so many, years of never ending happiness! Love you guys!
