Write this on the calendar as this is one of the few times that I have been left speechless in my life.
It has been such a crazy week, I’m sorry I didn’t get back to you until now! Thank you so much for giving us a taste of the shoot so quickly after you returned. Honestly, I don’t know how I would have survived. The shoot itself was so surreal, I needed to see the pictures to be sure it actually happened — and that it went as fabulously as it felt! Phil and I were excited enough, but everyone I know was absolutely dying to see how the photos turned out from our London Engagment Session too, and let me tell you we all LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures!!! No one can pick a favorite — the daffodils? Big Ben? the fountain? the London Eye? Each one looks like a post card but without taking away from the people in the picture. :-)
Also, I was so touched by your write-up of the shoot and your beautiful description of me and Phil. I am so flattered — thank you. If we are “Romance, defined.” you are truly the gifted artist for seeing that and capturing it with your photography. I am so grateful to have these beautiful images to remember this time in our lives.
On a more practical note, I couldn’t appreciate the technical importance of having an engagment session until we’d finished it. I’m so glad we got to spend time working together before the big day. The familiarity and ease we established at the engagment shoot will add an invaluable warmth to our wedding photographs. I’ve never seen Phil so enthusiastic outside his comfort zone, and I’ve never felt so comfortable being photographed. And then to see the results! The difference between a typical photographer and an artist — you photographed the way we feel about each other. Your style and structure in every photo is so artfully constructed, but mindful of the subjects. It’s such a confidence booster to know that every gorgeous angle of every moment on our wedding day will be so brilliantly captured in the say way.
Thanks to you and Katherine both for sharing your time with us for such a magical day! If anything could have added to the whole experience, it was sharing the day with such a caring and supportive couple.
Lots of love to you both, and we can’t wait for more of the London Shoot and for the big day!!!
As I complete this posting for you, my eyes are filled with tears as this has greater value to me than it’s weight in gold and how we are able to share so much more with our couples than to just be a “hired shooter” for their day.
May you have as blessed a week as we are – cheers!
