Alot of things have happened in the past year with my brides and grooms.
Recently in the past couple of months one of my couples had a family passing. It was when I received notice that this happened my brain got thinking.
You never know what is going to happen in life. The good or the bad. It made me really realize that photographs are soooo important and especially wedding photographs. How you capture this important moment in time that will never happen again. How these photos become a treasure and of such importance.
Today I got this email from a couple that recently received their album. When I opened the email and read what they wrote to me I felt that I wanted to share this immediately with everyone. As I was reading their email I got tears in my eyes. It felt so good to be able to capture their moment in time and be of such importance to them. i am so happy that they have these memories to treasure forever.
The email read as below:
“We just wanted to send a heartfelt thank you.
Our (big fat Greek) wedding album is the most beautiful piece of work we have ever seen.
You did a fantastic job of laying everything out and putting the perfect amount of each family member and event that happened throughout the day in the album. We never realized how precious pictures can be until the untimely passing of John’s father and my father in law.
You captured him, my mother in law and my parents in such a beautiful light….I never realized how certain pictures can be taken for granted until you are looking at them in a different light and while John and I were looking at the album this weekend we saw a picture of our first dance and in the background all of our parents were talking together and so happy. That is how I want to remember my father in law always. It brought tears to my eyes.
I cannot thank you enough for your beautiful work. (even my father the man of so little words, was blown away at the beauty of the album) and my grandparents commented of how real the pictures felt and it brings you right back to that day. And even though I cannot wear my dress everyday like I want to I can look at the book and feel like I did that day.
It will always be treasured for years to come.
We will see you soon and Marcy and Jay’s wedding!!!
Mrs. & Mrs. Kaloidis”
