I took this photo of Grayson and Christine in March of 2007:
And I got a call from a guy, asking to use it as the cover art on an album he was planning on putting out soon. We chatted on the phone, and I got this email from him shortly thereafter:

It was good speaking with you today.
Thanks for giving us your permission to use your photograph for the cover of our CD “Wisdom of a Kiss”, and for sending us a high-res version of the picture to use.
We’ll credit you on the CD – is the wording here OK with you?
“Cover Photograph by John Engler, johnengler.com ”
Also please include your mailing address so we can send you some copies of the CD by way of thanks.
It’s a wonderful photograph and we’re really pleased to have found it and to be able to use it. It captures the concept “Wisdom of a Kiss” beautifully.
Turns out they’d found a photo of mine on flickr that they liked a lot for their new album.
So, I sent them my mailing address, and the photo in hi-res versions…
And just the other day, I found the art on their website.
So, go to their band’s website, and take a listen… I really enjoyed the songs available on their website. You will too, I bet:
Thanks Folk in A!
