Hi Edward, You are great to work with. You captured really amazing moments throughout the wedding, and one of the best qualities of your work was your ability to use natural light to make everything look romantic and outstandingly beautiful. You always responded promptly to all emails and arrived early to the wedding; overall, very reliable, reasonable, and extremely talented!

You and your entire crew were so phenomenal yesterday. Thank you so much for all your help and being so dedicated and helpful and cheerful and energetic. When the weather opened up out of nowhere, it was a shock and I didn't see how the day was going to turn around. But you guys made it so nice and put so much effort into getting us the shots we were hoping for despite the curveball. I just wanted to extend a big thank you and let you know how much we appreciated it.
