Monte, "Big Daddy" Blair and Tibor have all passed away, but if you were around in those days then you know how much each of them paved the way for wedding and portrait photography today. In fact, everybody in the picture has played a significant role, not just in the foundation of WPPI, but in building our industry.
Looking at this image brings back an avalanche of great memories. This was at least 10 years before I worked for WPPI. There were several of us from the industry who would fly in for the show 2-3 days early just to help out and be a part of what Steve Sheanin and his crew were building. It didn't matter what job we were given to do, this was about being part of a "family".
As usual, Throwback Thursday always has a point - and it's the same every time. The images you capture today will be the cherished memories you share tomorrow. Don't miss an opportunity to capture those special moments, so twenty years from now you can be looking back and telling stories like I enjoy sharing every Thursday!
