Giving Thanks

Maybe it’s the season, maybe it’s my awesome clients – but I was literally bombarded with some of the sweetest emails and Facebook comments this past week and I wanted to share some of them. I don’t think I could properly thank my clients enough for the trust they put in me to be there with them on their wedding days, the milestones in their children’s lives and the little moments that often mean the most… but I feel like just by sharing their words to me, I’m letting them know how much I appreciate the things they do for me.

From Deb, Wedding on November 20, 2010:
“I just wanted to send a quick little email to tell you how amazing you were last week at our wedding. I’ve been to so many weddings where getting photos is like pulling teeth, and it stresses everyone out. Since we worked with you before, we weren’t worried about that at all– but we were extremely impressed nonetheless, especially at how you were able to wrangle the crowd:) We’re really looking forward to seeing our pictures (we fell in love with the teasers you put up)! I’m sure you get this from all your clients, but you are simply wonderful. Thank you for keeping our wedding stress-free, for making me feel comfortable and beautiful in front of the camera (no easy feat, believe me), and for helping out with the little things (e.g., making sure John and I didn’t see each other beforehand, etc.). It’s been really exciting to watch your business grow in the past year, and we look forward to seeing it continue to take off– you totally deserve it! … I would like to tell everyone how great you are and to book you before it’s too late! I’ve already had a few of my friends ask me about you and tell me how impressed they are with your talent. SO glad that I found you, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

From Kristan, Wedding on October 23, 2010:
“Thank you so much the photos! They look absolutely amazing. I’m so happy that you were able to capture the most important part of my life! I couldn’t ask for anyone more special (even though you made me trudge through orange groves on the day of my wedding ;) ! Your such an amazing photographer and person. As soon as I saw you and Reema on on my wedding day I finally felt like I could breath, and everything was finally in place. It’s been such a wonderful adventure getting to know you….and when I say adventure I mean it…..where shall I start….???? 12 flights of stairs……apple trees…..old man- bike- dog- bridge…need I say more???
Once again, thanks for EVERYTHING! Who’s to say the next shoot (well after my trash the dress that is) will be my maternity…!

From Sue, Wedding on January 22, 2011:
“It was good seeing you the other day.  I’m going to have withdrawal after the wedding :(  I’m used to having you in on the important moments!

And some fun Facebook comments… because I love Facebook :)

“Wow! You never cease to amaze me! What a beautiful wedding, with gorgeous southern details, and a love that is definite! I couldn’t be more thrilled to have you as our wedding photographer and my new friend :) Makes me all giddy inside to see what you’ll do with us!” – Alexandra Walker, of Alex Michele Photography in Jacksonville, Wedding on April 1, 2011 (in response to Kristan and Sam’s Wedding)

“Kristen, I just wanted to say that the pictures on Kristan & Sam’s wedding are just beautiful!!! You do the BEST work I have ever seen, you can tell you really enjoy what you do!!!” – Karen Thompson, Kristan’s mom
