Megan and Lionel

The photographs are just amazing. Every day I look at a couple of photos and experience something new. I feel like I get to re-live the day as myself and also through the eyes of our guests. I love everything about the photographs. Your ability to capture all of the fleeting moments between everyone, and all of the energy and joy I felt that day is astounding. I (and we) will treasure these images forever. I am so glad you had a good time shooting that day. I cannot believe how lucky we were to have you there.”
