This weekend I received the most extraordinary email from a previous couple. I am beyond touched and I’m not sure I can properly describe my thoughts and feeling in this post. While people may think photography is a fun job, that is not why I choose to be a photographer. The real reason why, is for letters like these. I document couples at a very important time in their lives and its about showing that love and connection between them and their family. While most couples know their photography is important, my ultimate goal is to make my work even more valuable with time.
Over the past few days I’ve had the chance to rediscover the photos that you took of our wedding a year and a half ago. What I realized is that you and your team did so much more than take photos, you really captured the essence of our family, our friends and our relationships with them and with each other. What a magical thing to have in our possession and what a talent that we were lucky enough to find when we found you.
Our lives are busy and we were especially busy the year that we planned our wedding. I’m so glad that I took the time to think about the kind of photography I wanted and the way that we wanted to capture our wedding week. As I look through these photos now, I really appreciate how your photos catch us in the act of the moment so genuinely and beautifully. Many of these moments I didn’t even have time to process and now I am able to relive them. It was a special time that we won’t get back, but your photos seem to have frozen the emotions in place. Treasure forever was a phrase that really made me cringe during wedding planning, but I think it makes a bit more sense to me now 🙂
As I mentioned to you, we just spent some time with relatives in England and as I look at the photos I am so struck by how you were able to capture the quirkiness of some of the characters in our family (including the bride and groom at times).
This is my long winded way of saying thank you.
I feel so lucky that we had the chance to work with you. Keep up the good work.
Paven and Erich
