Good references are important when choosing a photographer.  All of these comments were totally unsolicited and were taken from personal notes I have received over the years... 

  "Before we run off on our honeymoon we just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work on Sunday and for putting up with us!  You definitely had your work cut out for you with that massive family that I just didn't organize well enough!  I can't wait to see the pictures.  It looks like you caught every moment.  I'm so glad that you were part of our day.  We definitely needed someone as calm and carefree as yourself to help balance out my "spasticness."  We feel very luck to have had you with us... a lovely special lady and an awesome photographer."     - S & B, Wedding Photography Customers 
  "Thank you for the great pictures of our wedding.  I was so worried because I am not a photogenic person, typically.  My fear was that my husband would look wonderful and I would be hideous.  Thanks for your expertise, that turned out to not be the case!  I must say that I have never felt better about photographs of myself.  You captured our wedding day superbly!"       - A & M, Wedding Photography Customers 
  "We want to let you know how pleased our whole family was with the wedding pictures.  Everyone at my workplace raved about the beautiful album.  We all love our pictures and have not complaints what-so-ever with the day, poses, or prices.  Sorry about "you know who's" attitude, but as they say, "You can pick your friends, but not your relatives."  Anyway, we had fun, enjoyed working with you and feel you did a friendly, professional job.  Thanks again for your work and caring."       - P.B., Wedding Photography Customer 
  "Thank, thank, thank you so much for doing all you did for me in such short notice and especially for making it exciting!  You're a sweetheart!  Thanks for helping make my dream come true!"     -M.E., Portrait Customer 
  "I just wanted to send a little note to let you know how much I appreciate all your hard work.  The pictures are beyond my expectations.  Everyone I show them to tells me how absolutely beautiful they are.  Thank you for capturing the beauty of our day!"     -K.S., Wedding Photography Customer 
  "We thank you for your patience at our wedding.  You did a wonderful job.  We would highly recommend you to any of our friends who need a professional photographer who also has a great sense of humor!"     - C & M, Wedding Photography Customers
