Picture Perfect

Wedding Heartache Has A Happy Ending

Back in 1980, a teen couple in Mansfield, Ohio, didn't have the $150 to pay for their wedding photos, so they thought the pictures were gone forever. But Jim Wagner, now 80 years old,who took the wedding pictures, recently came across them, then set out to find the bride, Karen Cline. He walked into the Taylor's Country Diner last week, where Karen works. "I didn't recognize him, I did not know who he was and he said maybe this will help you remember and he handed me the photo album from twenty-seven years ago," she said. "He gave me the photo album and I opened it up and there it was, there were the pictures from my wedding album."

FOOTNOTE: No negatives, just positives.

That was very kind of him.

However, on second blush, what on earth is an 80 year old going to do with the negatives of a wedding he shot 27 years ago?

Come on, give her the negs too, at least for her decendants.

Maybe he lost them.

That's a nice story. Our wedding photographer did give us the negatives, and he let us develop what we wanted. That was part of the deal, and one reason why he was cheaper than most of the other photographers. Since we divorced, the negatives and everything from the wedding are boxed up for Audrey.

This reminds me of when we were growing up in Iowa. One year all our friends were going to get their picture taken with Santa. My sisters and I desparately wanted to go, but my mom could not afford the pictures. Finally she relented and took us and the photos were taken, though we had no plans to order any copies. Years later a city employee found the photos and gave them to my mom. :-)
