'Thank you so much for the wonderful wedding album that you created for us. We sat down this evening with it and enjoyed our wedding day all over again, the moments captured so beautifully by you. It is a very special treasure that you have given us and which will stay with us for life. Thank you for all the hard work and time that you put into the album, telling our wedding story as it really was, capturing all the very special moments. We both want you to know that we think you are an amazingly talented and gifted photographer. The album says it all and we feel privileged to have had your presence and input.
Annmarie and James O'Callaghan-Maher
'Thanks for the flash drive and photobook recommendation. The flash drive was beautifully done, it was like getting a really fancy pass-the-parcel present!
I think we have all the photos now and we're so happy with them. Everyone we've showed them to has said they're the best wedding photos they've seen.'
Karina and Steve Fernandes-Kappa
'Many many thanks for sending on the photos, we spent last night looking through everything a few times and we are just so delighted with how they turned out. We cannot thank you enough for your hard work, you’ve really captured some truly magical moments.
We’re especially delighted with the photos from the second half-day outing we took, we weren’t sure how they’d turn out but they are really stunning. We had such a lovely time remembering the wedding as we looked through them and they came through at the perfect time, as they were an early birthday present for Ashleigh!'
Ashleigh and Stephen
