Thank you so very much for taking such beautiful photos on our wedding day! From the first phone call we made, to the day of our wedding, and months after, you have been such a pleasure to work with. Based on your portfolio and the questions you asked us, we were confident that you would truly capture the essence of our day, but you brought even more to the table with your very calm presence and very artistic eye and adventurous techniques - we could barely believe our eyes when you headed into the rocky water with two cameras strapped around your neck to photograph our picnic!! Those pictures in particular are truly phenomenal, and we are so grateful that you ventured into the ocean to capture our special moment! It was really fun spending the day with you...Thank you for not only taking lovely photographs but for also being just wonderful to share such a personal day with. Thank you also for the framed picnic photo! It's in our living room and we love it! Thank you so much for providing us with such lovely photos to remember our wedding with! All the best to you!

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!
