Katie, We want to thank you for everything you did for us this past summer.

Our photos were more than we could have dreamed of and they have brought us so much joy over the last several months. Thank you for the prints too! It's so nice enjoying them framed! Love, Heather, Mitch, and Kira

Katie, First card for you! Many thanks for your professionalism. The formals are perfect...grasses made a great backdrop.

"Scotty the body" dancing with everyone and the tender moments...the hugs, kisses and love. Thank you for memorializing these. Love, Carol Mother of the Groom
