Many of you know that I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. What a lot of you don’t know is that St. Louis is indeed almost directly west of Dayton, and not “in the south.” When I first met Mindy and told her I was from St. Louis she asked, “What’s it like living down there?” Down where? St. Louis was a great city to grow up in, and I still have family and friends there. Holden’s grandparents still live in the house I grew up in. When we visit I love catching up with old friends and eating some of the great famous St. Louis food. They have the BEST pizza (yes, I’ll fight you Chicago people), and some greats like toasted ravioli that aren’t available anywhere else. And of course there’s my Cardinals and Blues!
Joe and Ali are our best friends back home, and Billy is Joe’s little brother. I, of course, use the term “little” very lightly. None of the the Bubenik brothers are little. In fact they’re huge. But they’re the nicest brothers you will ever meet, and they’re all either married to or dating wonderful women.
I was absolutely thrilled when Billy contacted me about shooting his wedding, and I love that he and Maggie are really excited to be working with us. It’s always nice to have clients that are pumped to have us as their photographers, and it’s even better when they’re such close friends. We met up with Maggie and Billy on our last trip to the Lou, got to know Maggie a little better, shot some photos, and ate some cake. If that sounds like a good time to you, you’re right.
