Nothing better than a happy bride
Monday I posted a handful of Beth and Jeff’s wedding previews from their Saturday wedding, still working on a write up blog post about all the fun after a triple-event weekend. (Notre Dame football away game weekends are off the hook!)
Beth’s note made my Monday, and I’ve just got to share it (with permission, of course!)
Hey Eric and Sara!
We are again completely amazed at your talent. Sara, you were so fantastic to be with the morning of. You helped to put my mind at ease and just blended in with the madness up in the room. Eric, I felt like the only time I saw you was when you sat down to have a quick bite to eat. How you manage to take such beautiful photos and remain so “invisible” I will never know! In any case, I LOVE THESE AND COULD NOT BE HAPPIER!
Take care and talk to you soon!!
I think that’s some of the best compliments to hear – gaining an extra, helpful bridesmaid that jumps in the middle of the fun and a photo ninja that doesn’t get in the way or become visible till he eats. (I’ll trade a few minutes of ninja vanish for good food any day!) I remained “invisible” because there was nonstop fun to be had and I was there to tell the story, not direct it.
These guys aren’t new to enjoying our work – or busy weekends, for that matter! We met up for their engagement session on Memorial Day back in May just after I shot a morning and afternoon wedding. Sounds busy but their Engagement Session was the perfect wind-down to a busy holiday weekend. Jeff and I chatted about iPhone apps and fun and I knew they were driving back home to New York so I checked to be sure our proof gallery is iPhone friendly (it is!) before emailing them a link to it. Here’s the reply I got a few hours later -
These look amazing! Thank you so much, you have a true talent. And thank you for checking (if the proof gallery could be viewed) on the iphone! We looked at them, on the iphone, at 5am, the moment we arrived home. With lack-of-sleep as the excuse, we’ll keep this email short. Thank you again, and we’ll be in touch. We can’t wait to share these!
Jeff & Beth
Go have a honeymoon guys! Enjoy your very deserved getaway!
