Thank you so much for the incredible job you did! Your pictures are beautiful, fantastically capturing the spirit of our wedding and creating perfect memories of our big day! It was so relaxing to have you -- not once did we have to worry about the pictures, because we knew you would do a great job and think of all kinds of motifs! You really did everything to get the very best pictures out of the situation, and it showed. Thanks for all the running you did along the pier to catch us in the boat, and your acrobatic shooting onboard! Honestly, we couldn't have wished for a nicer, more professional, gifted photographer. Thank you so very much, and all the best in the future!

Hi Ed, From start to finish, our experience with you for our wedding photography was incredibly pleasant and easy! You are so great to work; you have great professionalism and skills. We are so pleased we chose you as the photographer for our big day–we’ve heard nothing but rave reviews of our photos since. You captured our magical weekend beautifully and our only regret is that we didn’t hire you for our rehearsal dinner as well! We want to thank you for capturing our wedding day and night so beautifully and allowing us to relive it over & over again through photos!
