Can we talk about pinwheels? They will be the next big wedding trend. Mark my words. Credit is due to Ariel, my friend, recent bride & current Martha Stewart intern, for her influential trendsetting. Mama did EVERYTHING. Invitations. Menus. Placecards. Programs. Chuppah. Paper pinwheels. And it should be duly noted that a handwritten thank-you card arrived less than 10 days after the wedding. Alright, Mrs. Manners, your mother taught you right. Speaking of Ariel’s mom, she literally brought me to tears with her thank you note:
Words cannot really express how wonderful your wedding photography is! Because of who you are (not to mention your talent!), you were able to capture the people and the event with an artist’s eye. In reviewing the photos, I was truly reliving the wedding in ways that I could not because I was such an integral part of it.
So, thank you for an incredible job. You are a very special person, and Ariel (and therefore we) are very lucky to have you in her / our life.
Susan (and Steve)
Aww. It’s comments like those that totally validate my love of weddings. The intimacy you share with couple and their family connects you in truly meaningful ways. It enriches my life to bear witness to such warmth. While chilling at the Hall & Oates concert last month with photographer friend, Debi, she told me that this wedding season yielded such awesome couples that she earnestly wanted to be their friends. THAT is what you look for in a wedding photographer. Connection.
Speaking of love and commitments: Congratulations goes out to family friend and awesome crafter in her own right, Jamie, who FINALLY married the woman of her dreams in an intimate ceremony in Boston. Wishing you many years of laughter and smiles.
