One of my biggest dreams came to me when I was 5 years old. I was a little Mexican kid with a part in my hair, a striped shirt, short shorts, and some knock off Chucks. One of my favorite movies at the time was “We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story”.
“Captain New Eyes travels back in time and feeds dinosaurs his Brain Grain cereal, which makes them intelligent and nonviolent. They agree to go to the Middle Future (this era) in order to grant the wishes of children in New York city. They are to meet Dr. Bleeb of the Museum of Natural History, but get side-tracked with their new friends and run into the Captain’s evil brother, Professor Screw Eyes, who has other plans for the dinosaurs.” -via IMDb.
This was one of the first times I heard of New York City, and ever since then it has been so special to me. But why? Perhaps at the time, to be a part of the dinosaur parade in the movie. Something so simple. And since then I’ve held it close to my heart, and it’s always been in the back of my mind. A child’s dream.
A few days ago we got word that we’ll be heading to NY for a beautiful July wedding! We’ll be there from the 24th-28th-ish and we’ll be staying in Brooklyn. We would love to shoot an engagement session and meet up with anyone that we can. So tell your friends!
I never would have thought I’d be photographing beautiful weddings around the US, 10 years ago. God is good, and I’m so happy to have but a taste of what life has in store for us. Europe, I’m coming for you.
Never give up.
