Gratitude

 

Each event I photograph is unique, and often a pivotal time in the lives of the clients who I am hired by. Although I cannot publish all of the comments due to the volume of cards and emails I’ve collected over the years, I’d like to share a few emails which I have received.

Hi  John,

We just wanted to take this moment to say “Thank you” for making our wedding so spectacular.  You made all our ideas and dreams a reality. I couldn’t imagine planning my wedding without your help, guidance and true expertise. You really made the whole process easy and the day of completely stress free for our entire family.  Having you as our Photographer we never worried for a second that everything would be perfect and every detail taken care of.  I got so many compliments about all the “details” of the wedding and can’t tell you how many people told me it was the best wedding/event they had ever attended. They loved the place, the atmosphere, the people like you so kind and friendly, everything was magical.  We feel lucky that we go to work with you.

We can simply never ever thank you enough.  Your efforts go down in our family history.
With Gratitude and Appreciation.

Diego, Carlota and Manny

Dear John,

We are writing with tremendous thanks for the beautiful photographs of our wedding ceremony and reception.

We were very eager to hire someone who would capture the special moments of our wedding day as they unfolded naturally. Upon meeting you, we knew from the high quality of your work and your extremely professional attitude that you were a good fit for us.

The engagement photo shoot was a lot of fun (even if it was on the hottest day of the summer!), and the photos are simply amazing. We are usually not comfortable with “posed” pictures, but you made us feel at ease instantly. Burlington is a beautiful place, and your eye for composition created images that we will treasure forever.

Even with last minute changes to our ceremony venue, you simply asked where we wanted you to be and when. Your professional and optimistic attitude was greatly appreciated at a time of high stress! On the day of the wedding, you were a lot of fun, professional, and we didn’t even notice you were snapping so many pictures! The traditional posed wedding party photos are gorgeous, and we are glad to have them. But what we treasure most is your “photojournalistic” style. Your pictures tell the story of our day better than a video. As we look through the images, the story of our wedding day unfolds, and evokes such powerful memories. We look at your photos and we remember how we felt as we saw each other for the first time at the church, or the tears we cried during the speeches. You captured on film the beauty that we see in each other, and in our friends and family, and that is a gift that will last a lifetime.

It has been two months since our wedding day, but we still look at our photos every day. Thank you for capturing our ceremony and reception in such an elegant and classic way. We couldn’t have asked for a better gift. We have received so many compliments about your photographs. We continue to recommend you to all of our guests and friends who are planning their own events. We plan on staying in touch so that we can have you photograph us on our 10th, 25th, and 50th wedding anniversaries!

Please believe us when we say that you helped to make our day more special than we even imagined it would be.

Thank you so much.
Kathleen & Seth

John,

Clint & I would just like to thank you again for being apart of our wedding day. After doing my sisters wedding in 2005, our entire family was instantly impressed not only with the caliber of your work, but with your flawless personality and genuine nature. Literally, you made Clint and I feel so at ease throughout the entire day, and looking back, some of our fondest memories are of times spent taking photos with you.

Likewise, our Engagement shoot was also a wonderful experience. The entire afternoon felt like a walk in the park with an old friend and as a result, you were able to capture pictures that looked as natural as can be. We loved your idea to use one of our engagement shots to frame and have our guets sign on the day of the wedding and thank you again for providing that for us!

In the end, you have given us beautiful memories of the most important day in our lives. A good photographer captures great memories, but a great photographer takes it one step further by also being a great memory himself. Thank you for being great! We literally can not stop speaking your praise to everyone we meet!

Hope to see you again at many more weddings to come,

Laura & Clint

We also had time to look at the pictures this weekend, and they were absolutely amazing! We are beyond happy, and the pictures certainly exceeded our expectations. Even my parents mentioned that they wished that you had been working for their wedding 30 years ago. Thanks again, and we will certainly let others know about your talent and extremely fair prices.

Hi John,

I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you again for doing our engagement photos. All of our friends & family loved the pictures. We enlarged a few shots and had them framed for gifts, posted our favorites on facebook, and sent copies to our friends and family in our Christmas cards. Everyone REALLY enjoyed the photos!! We are really looking forward to our wedding in October, and feel very lucky that you are going to be such an important part of our special day.

Thank you so much,
Angela & Dan

John, thank you for your fantastic work and your incredible professionalism. Drew and I felt relaxed and assured that
our wedding photos would be beautiful, but you exceeded our expectations. We look back at our photos often and remember
our day easily, the emotion and the happiness, by what you’ve captured. Your pleasant demeanor and gentle approach made
our guests feel just as special and they too have raved on about your wonderful work. We wouldn’t hesitate in
recommending you to anyone and wish you every success.

Thank you for the lovely note and the amazing photography you created on our wedding day. You made both of us feel at ease and we were so happy that you brought us back to the lake. We’re both looking forward to seeing the photographs, and it’s wonderful that you’re bringing them over. Ralph wouldn’t be up for the trip down and it will bring a big smile to his face to have you over with them. I’m very pleased with everything you’ve done and am highly recommending you to anyone I know whose getting married! Martin and Annette will also be lucky to have you next summer and it will be great to see you again.

Hoping to create many more clients for you! Thank you once again for being a part of some of our most sacred memories. For Ralph and I both, our wedding day was the most romantic and beautiful experience we could have asked for. A true fairy tale for two hopeless romantics.

Sincerely,
Jessica & Ralph
