"Dear Panagiotis, We hope this email finds you well. Firstly, we apologise for taking so long to write - it has actually taken us this long to put into words how much we love the wedding photographs! We have spent hours and hours looking at them all, and each time it just gets better. I watch the slideshow every single day, and show it to everyone I see! Your photos are absolutely amazing. We had high hopes for them, but you have exceeded our expectations by far, and we couldn't be happier with them all. We want to thank you for your hard work - both on the day and for all the editing in the weeks after. We are so grateful for the wonderful memories you have given us. We will treasure the photos and videos forever, and are thrilled that we can keep re-living the day with all our family and friends who couldn't be there. Aside from the fantastic quality of your work, we want to thank you personally. You are a true professional and it was a pleasure to work with you, from the first day we met in Athens, until we received all the pictures here in Dubai. You have consistently reassured us with your reliability and positive attiude, your passion for your work, and your quick replies to endless emails! Your calm personality made our wedding day truly enjoyable, and it is a testament to your huge talent that you were able to take so many hundreds of photos with us barely realising you were there! Our parents share our sentiments, and also want to thank you for being the perfect wedding photographer. We wish you all the best, and hope at some point you have a chance to take a holiday and relax! Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year, Best Regards, " Chloe & Jim - Wedding in Spetses island
