    You are a fabulous photographer and the passion and love you have for what you do is evident in your work.  Every time I saw you taking pictures (which you were everywhere, all over the reception, and on the dance floor snapping pictures) you were smiling.  You truly love what you do and it shows.  Thank you for your beautiful work, you captured the day so beautifully. Jessica’s aunt.
