My name is Matthew Skouras, a teacher at Bergenfield High School in NJ, USA. I stumbled upon this post and feel that the image from Efren and Lourdes wedding would work wonderfully in a production we are doing. The styling, era, and love that is captured in the photo exceed anything we have been able to reproduce otherwise. I am seeking your permission to use the image in our 7 performances. We are a non-profit school group and the image will not be used for any financial gain. If you would like, I can share with you the video that the photo will appear in and explain it's role in our production. Please contact me at mskouras@bergenfield.org at your earliest convenience.

Hi Matt: I talk to my brother Efren and he gave his permission to use his wedding photo for your project described above. I would appreciate if you can share the video with me. Thanks for visiting my blogs. David B. Katague

Hi David,

I appreciate you offering to let us use the picture. However, since I contacted you, one of the students involved in the production came forward with a comparable image from their family. While the image I inquired about is a perfect fit for our use, it is far more meaningful to use the one from one of the students. Therefore, we will no longer be using your image in our video.

Thank you for your time,
~Matt Skouras
