I just wanted to send a quick thank you for everything on Saturday. I am so anxious and excited to see the pictures, I know they’ll be amazing.
Apologies again for rushing during the cocktail hour. We were so overwhelmed and anxious to get to see everyone. The night went SO fast I can’t even believe it.
Thank you for your patience with us. We had a wonderful night and can’t wait to see everything you captured. Hope you had fun as well!

Now that I feel like I can relax, I wanted to thank you and Jack again for helping to make Erica and Aaron’s wedding the wonderful day that it was. You guys were amazing!! You made us feel like you had everything under control and you were so much fun to work with. I must admit that Monday evening, after all the company and family left, that I was a bit depressed! :( It was like what do I do now? It was somewhat of a sad feeling to realize it was over which I guess is better than thinking thank goodness it’s over. I can’t wait to see the video and the pictures to re-live it all over again. Again, thanks to both you and Jack. Who knows, I might have to call you back again someday although I must admit I hope it isn’t for awhile yet. Take care!
