Dear Lyndsey, As journalists, Tommy and I work with world class photographers on a daily basis. Yet it's not everyday we get back from a shoot to the joy of discovering that the photographer has captured moments and perspectives that we didn't even know were there, allowing us to tell a better story. Those are the good days...and you made our wedding the best day of all. Your photos are full of wonderful surprises, thoughtful moments, and beautiful compositions. Thank you for capturing our day in a way that goes hand in hand with our experience of it, and will forever illustrate our memories. Plus you were such a pleasure to work with! We couldn't be more thrilled, thank you. Thank you again, Justine
