The first time I was ever at Dodger Stadium must have been some time during the 1977 season. My uncle took my brother and me to a great game where the Los Angeles Dodgers were locked in fierce competition with the Pirates. It was quite overwhelming for this 5-year-old and I don’t remember whether it was the excitement of the game or the Dodger Dogs, but something didn’t agree with me when I got back to my Uncle’s house. (Just ask him about his rug.)
This most recent time in Chavez Ravine, I was 1 of 4 people in the entire stadium. The other three were Cat and our clients, Heather and Michael. Heather comes from a serious family of Uber-Dodger fans and just happens to work for the team. She arranged our exclusive visit to the stadium and we were ecstatic! Michael supports the San Francisco Giants. But we won’t hold that against him.
Tomorrow, the New York Mets will try to upset the Dodgers in the first round of the playoffs. Today, I submit to you this wonderful engagement session set in the home of Koufax, Drysdale, and Lasorda. Thank you, Heather and Michael, for this memorable experience! We look forward to shooting your wedding later this year after the Dodgers win The World Series.
