Maya! You are beyond talented, and we feel a strong sense of gratitude for your amazing work! As you know, Our family comes from a long tradition of top-notch photojournalism, having been close friends with Henri Cartier-Bresson. Elliott Erwitt documented our wedding in his humorous and brilliant style, among other things. When we turned to Elliot for recommendations, he told us to go to the WPJA website. We were so pleased to discover your beautiful, eloquent and spontaneous photographs. You surpassed our expectations on the day of the wedding, and you were such a delight to deal with. When we received your final product, we were just amazed! Alexandra and I immediately knew we had found our match, just by looking at your portfolio, and it became even more obvious after your phone interview with Alexandra when your said, "enjoy your wedding day,  do not worry about me, I will be around" it was music to our ears. Your attitude is the key to the natural spontaneity and the emotions clearly expressed in your art. You were such a delight to deal with, and thank you for giving it your all!

We got the package last week and it was beautiful. The pictures are amazing - when we first got the link, I stayed up until 3am looking at them. They are perfect. You did an amazing job and you're an incredible talent. We can't thank you enough for all of your work - we feel incredibly lucky to have had you shoot our wedding.
