The Texidor family

I’ve known this family for a long time. In fact, Josie, her sister, my wife and I all used to work at the same movie theater back around…ohh…1993-95 or some such. Lots of good times at that place. Here’s a shout out to the no-longer-there AMC Lakes 6. You were the best job I ever had and may ever have.

Dave is the guy who pretty  much tossed me out the door to go ask Jina’s father for her hand in marriage. If it wasn’t for him…who knows how long it would have taken me to get the guts up to go do that.

Fast-forward to today and Dave and Josie are married with three amazing kids. We haven’t gotten to spend a lot of time with them lately, so it was nice to meet up with them and take some pictures.

Thanks so much guys for letting me do this for you!

And also props to Alex Evjen from AVE Styles for picking out the wardrobe for these guys…they looked amazing!
