So this blog is a little late… as it is the end of November and these weddings were back in October… but.. better late than never!!
First we have Heather & Chris… these two have been very close friends of mine for years and to see the two of them marry warmed my heart… it was like watching everything right in the world come together. As I stood in the church watching people arrive I have NEVER felt such pure excitement from everyone waiting for Heather & Chris. Words can’t explain the feeling in this church… and it was 100% for this amazing couple. It got me excited too… I loved it… and then, AFTER the ceremony, we went on a carriage ride only this time… instead of chasing them on my bike (as is the norm) Chris & Heather wanted me riding up front with Bobby Roach (our carriage driver.. love that guy!!)… needless to say the pics were so fun from that angle.. .and the day was magical. From there, was an afternoon reception at The Iroquois Hotel (Becki and the staff did an impeccable and gorgeous job as ALWAYS… I highly recommend this place)…
Heather & Chris… I can’t put into words what a pure joy it was to be a part of your wedding. I thought I knew the two of you before hand… but witnessing this magical day I love you guys even more, you two are an example by which many people should look to, and I am proud to say I am your friend!!
So I have to share with you a few emails… and why they have reminded me how I love what I do . ..and I love when others are happy!!
I finished their slideshow late last night… and this is the email I woke up to this morning (needless to say it was an amazing way to start the day)
Oh, Andrejka! We just had a good cry watching the slideshow! It is absolutely amazing! It is way better than any expectations I had. We both just said how thankful we were that you were our photographer! We know our families will love it too! Thank you so much! We can’t wait to see the rest! You truly do have a gift!

So, I of course wanted to share this with you all… and I wrote back…
Oh my goodness!! You are so nice… I am soo glad you love your pics… would you mind if I used this email on my blog? It is just so touching.. and reminds me why I love shooting weddings!
AND then… another amazing email.. by now I HAD tears in my eyes …
You definitely can use the email. I would recommend you to everyone! 🙂 Our families did see the slideshow and our moms both cried! Jami loves the picture of Benjamin and Natalie hugging! Everyone has a favorite…well, many favorites! 🙂 I love how you captured so many special moments throughout the day! I guess that’s why you call it photojournalistic! And, the starbucks pictures are so cool! 🙂 My co-workers love them! They say it’s so me! I am going to have a hard time choosing which ones to frame! 🙂 I have a feeling we will be looking at these pictures everyday for a very LONG time! 🙂
I couldn’t make these up if I tried…
Thank you so much S&A.. I so appreciate from the bottom of my heart all of your kind words. It truly was such a pleasure to meet you and share in your day. It is so clear to see the love you two have for each other and the joy in your eyes when your with each other. Thank YOU… I wish you both years and years of true joy and happiness.
