I have read and understood the terms above. I hereby agree to the terms of this agreement.

“I just wanted to send you an email expressing our gratitude for the photographs of our wedding.  Dan and I love them, and the little touches in the package made it even more special when we received it.

I just want to say a special thank you from me though.

I wasn’t ever going to be a very confident bride and I struggled with the whole process from the day I tried the first dress on in the shop.  Even during the day I struggled and afterwards, as I hated most of the photos of myself of the day taken by my friends and family.  When we received your photos, it was another story.  I actually thought I looked all right!  My favourite photo of us both is when we walked out of the church, after our drum n bass exit, and we just grabbed each other for a quick kiss.  The happiness I can see in the way you captured us is perfect, and that is a theme throughout your work for us.  But also, you were my constant throughout the day, letting me know where I should be or what I should be doing.  I think I would have been lost without you!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your superb professionalism and for the quality of your work.”

CLAIRE & DAN HILL
