Five years ago I received an email with the subject “Compliments”. It was not a wedding enquiry, or a request – it was instead just an expression of appreciation of our photography:
“My partner and I have been blown away by your work yet we are not looking at getting married in the next year or so, but perhaps in a couple years… We have decided that it has to be you to shoot our wedding in the near future as there simply is no alternative. So I’m sorry that we can not give you our business now but we just wanted to wish you the best of luck with your work and hope that you continue with your career as a photographer.”
This from a total stranger, with nothing expected in return. Who does that… and what a legend!
Fast forward 5 years and Mark comes back to us with another email, he has recently proposed while on holiday in Paris (tick), they’ve picked their wedding venue The Stables at Bendooley Estate (another tick) and had remembered us after all this time (the trifecta!).
In person Erica and Mark are two of the nicest people we could ever hope to meet, Mark has a smile that is as reassuring as it is genuine and Erika was so warm and engaging. They had just been to Berrima and were brimming with excitement about planning their Southern Highlands wedding and we were thrilled to join their adventure!
