Hi Dominic, I hope you are keeping well and managing to wind down a little over Christmas. We are finally trying to get back to normal life following the wedding and honeymoon and just wanted to drop you a line to say once again a big thank you for joining us for our wedding day to capture some of the memories. We so appreciate you going with the flow and working with the terrible lighting in the venue! Sorry about that!

We really enjoyed working with you back in August 2014, you took the time in getting to know us and what we wanted. You were professional, discreet and nothing was too much to ask. On the day we had an issue in that we were unable to take our traditional photographs in a certain place and so we were unable to have them. I didn't need to worry though as you were very creative and took natural action shots of all my family and friends which definitely made up for the earlier issue. I love looking at my wedding photographs and I always get comments on how beautiful and natural the photographs are. Thank you Ben.
