“I have SO MUCH to say … I decided to just write everything from the heart and hope that I don’t bore you with all my words. Here is a review of how amazing we think you are.
Picking a photographer to capture our special day was the most important thing to us. Flowers last a week at most, food gets eaten and all the “extra details” are almost always forgotten. The person that captures the sentimental moments and all the “extra details” is an essential element of the wedding day and we wanted the best. When we saw your work on the Ehrhardt’s website, we knew we wanted you to photograph our wedding. The way you use ambient light in a location and compose an image makes you an artist (and a highly talented artist at that). It’s this talent is what drew us to you, but your personality and your professionalism is what really sealed the deal.
On the day of our wedding, you not only photographed each important detail, but you also captured moments that the average person may overlook. You remembered the names of our family members and took extra care to remember their relationships (especially the difficult ones). Pictures that could have had uncomfortable faces were instead filled with wide smiles and sparkling eyes. For this, we are thoroughly grateful.
You went above and beyond when our nine year old nephew wanted to take pictures with you. You showed him how and allowed him the time to do it (which he mentions even now, eight months later). Our family and friends are still talking about how amazing you were. Some of our guests even commented on your “stealth photography”; one minute you were there next to them taking a picture, the next minute you were gone and they didn’t even know when you left (or even when you arrived for that matter). You didn’t disrupt the flow of the day or make anyone feel uncomfortable about having their picture taken. The photos are a true testament to this.
When we got our proofs, each picture evoked an emotion; whether it be a cackle of laughter, a sentimental tear, or a joyous smile, your photos captured not just the moment, but everything that comprised the moment. Out of all the photos we’ve seen from the weddings of friends and family, ours, without question, are the best. Not because they’re ours, but because of you and your talent.
Brad and I thoroughly enjoyed looking through the proofs and the hardest part was picking the pictures for our album, which was also artfully done. Not only did you take amazing photos, but you then used those photos to tell the story of our day. Everyone who sees our album is awestruck and we always receive compliments when we show it.
You captured memories that we’ll have for the rest of our lives. As the years pass, we know certain elements of the day will fade, but because of you, the ones that are preserved will last and help us remember everything. Agnes, we can’t even begin to thank you for everything that you did for us. Anyone would be lucky to have you for their photographer and we can assure you that if we decide to have children, we will look to you to take our pregnancy and baby photos.
Thank you so very much,
Laura and Brad ”
