Just had to share this email

February 28, 2009

We shot a really nice wedding a few weeks ago. The couple was great to work with, everything was just great. Well, last night we got this email from the bride, Michelle, and, wow, what a great email for us! I had to put it here to share.

Thanks, Michelle, you made our day.

Here’s the email:

Christy and Frank
I wanted to send these along.  The are just a few of the comments we got from people who saw the photos you took of our wedding.  Again, it was such a pleasure to work with both of you and I am recommending you to ANYONE that crosses my path!

Big warm hugs,

“What a LOVELY slide show of the wedding!  Who did all that for you?  The pictures were heavenly—I watched it twice and cried both times and even Cy who doesn’t usually gush over wedding photos was noticeably impressed.  It felt like a front row seat to everything—public and private.  Michelle was gorgeous, of course, but so were the boys and all their beautiful friends.”

“OH WOW!!!!     What a beautiful wedding!!!!  I have watched the slide show at least 5 times.  The photographers were amazing.  The pictures even show the daylight progression through the windows.  Gorgeous.  And I love how they captured the little touches like the locket and M&M’s and even details on the bridesmaids dresses….and somehow the personality of people showed through….hard to explain.”

“These pictures are so beautiful, I feel as if I was there.  What a wonderful wedding.”

“Incredible photos, Michelle!  Thanks for sending them along.  It was wonderful to relive that magical day!  Hope your honeymoon was a blast :)”

“This is incredible!  You must be so pleased — your photographers really captured your most wonderful wedding.”

“What gorgeous pictures!”

“…absolutely gorgeous!!! Your wedding photos should be in a magazine they are SOOOOOOO good!!! : )”
