Matt and Amy, this thank you is long overdue! There are precious moments in life that are to be celebrated and captured. Not captured by just anyone, but by artists who have a passion for their craft and a love affair with revealing and illuminating the stories and essence of their clients.
Matt, you and Amy captured Audra and I in the way we saw each other, as beautiful!
It's been over a year and I'm thankful every day that I have those magical moments of love reflected back at me in pictures frames and on walls.
On this day, I am also reminded of the power of a picture; the precious moment in time it captures and holds. My grandfather passed this week. Little did I know then the pictures you took of us would be our last ones together, forever memories cherished and now locked in time.
I know you said it was an honor to photograph our wedding but the honor was really ours in having the two of you with us. Thank you again for being a part of our story and sharing your love with us. To know love allows you to see it in others!
A note to those who are looking for a wedding photographer, if you are reading this, you found the one. I fretted over choosing a photographer. It was one of the most important decisions during the planning process. I knew with all the craziness that is a wedding I would suffer from wedding jitter amnesia and I wouldn't remember much except hopefully my vows and the I dos. I wanted someone to capture all the little details and moments we wouldn't remember (I am admittedly detail oriented aka picky). We wanted someone we could trust, which meant we wanted someone technically excellent and creative; and let's be honest, you want to look beautiful or handsome (like movie stars) in your wedding pictures. You don't do all that working out, dressing up and fretting for nothing??! Matt delivered in spades!
Something as simple as picking a wedding photographer becomes more complicated when trying to find a photographer who sees love as love. It was very important for my wife and I to find someone we were comfortable with and who made us feel at home in front of the camera. Matt's easy-going nature and light-hardheartedness instantly put us at easefrom our engagement photo shoot to our wedding day. We want to get married again just so we can spend more time with them both!
Thank you again Matt and Amy!
