Real Wedding by barebonephoto
For me the wedding was perfect. And for me the photographs you took were the poetry of that perfection. They are beautifully composed and elegant. They are artistic and documentary. They truly are the story of Dave and I on the day and I would not have changed a thing.
Dave, my parents and I were so impressed with your professionalism on the day of the wedding. We always felt completely at ease and never posed or constrained. Someone asked me after if my face was sore for all the pictures - and I remember thinking - "What pictures?" I could not have been more satisfied. Further, the way you organized and composed and even wrapped the photos to be delivered was touching and so appreciated - it is this attention to detail that comes out in your work.
Your work on site (Graydon Hall Manor) and the product of that work could not have been better. I think the greatest compliment for me to give to you will be when I recommend your work to each friend and each family member who has an event, like a wedding, that needs documenting. Even as I write this, I am trying to think of the next time I can hire you!
Choosing you to photograph the wedding was one of the best decisions I made. I look at the pictures now every week and show them off as much as I can without be too narcissistic!
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I wish you so much success.
Best wishes from London, (England)
Jenn and Dave
