Over the course of my time capturing weddings, I have received many thank you notes from both brides and families. I recently received a thank email from a mother of the bride for a wedding I photographed on September 20th at the Hy-Vee Conference Center in West Des Moines, IA. It was a wonderful wedding celebration that I was honored to capture as their wedding photographer. Her thank you email was very touching. Here it is:
Jim – I know we haven’t seen photos yet, but I wanted to say thank you to you and Trisha for being such awesome photographers yesterday. When I met you last year, my first impression was to hire you on the spot because I liked your calm-know-what-you’re-doing and very caring attitude. I was right!
I’m sure you do so many weddings that one is just like the next, but neither you nor Trish ever made us feel that way. Korrie loved working with you! I felt so comfortable that you were capturing our special day. And many times you were the one who guided things along. I wish all brides could have you capture their wedding.
Thanks again! I can’t wait to see the pics!
It is letters like these that make me remember why I love wedding photography. And no, ‘one is not just like the next’. Every celebration is unique and a pleasure to capture.
