The other day a lady came up to me in the grocery store and said, “Aren’t you Mr. Parish?” I said that I was and she said, “You took my wedding photos in Ozona in 1997.” She introduced me to her 13 year old son and said their family was moving to San Antonio so he could go to TMI. I said that was great and maybe I could take their family portrait someday!
A few weeks ago we photographed a big wedding at Trinity University. The mother of the bride said that I had photographed her wedding 31 years ago. A couple standing nearby then said, “He did ours 36 years ago.”
Since Parish Photography first started in 1964, we have photographed over 4,000 weddings and events. I run into people all the time who tell me that we did their event in the 60’s, 70’s or 80’s.
Here is a mother and daughter. I photographed the mother 1n 1976 and the daughter in 2009. The daughter was wearing her mother’s dress…with a different veil. They were both photographed in the exact same place!
Now I am waiting on grandchildren to get married!
