"They are amazing. Just looking through all of the photos reminded us of each aspect of our big day. The picture quality is amazing and we feel like everything about the day went amazingly well. You and Justin were fab and really accommodating to all aspects of our day from helping us with timings, group photos, getting the sunset images and sticking around to the first dance. We feel really privileged to have had you both photograph our wedding so thank you so much. All of our guests said how fantastic you were at getting integrated into the day, taking the group shots quickly, efficiently and effectively. They also said how friendly you both were, so thank you again!

"Well the postman was knocking at the door before I was out of bed this morning with a fantastic present ๐ŸŽ. I hadn't told Naomi I had emailed and knew it [album] was coming so it was a great surprise to her this morning to wake up too. I [we] have just been through it three times now and it's lovely. Really makes you relieve the day and make you feel all warm inside I nearly cried as it was such a fantastic day and so proud to have found such a great person in Naomi. The photos really come to life when you look at them and you can see the true affection in all our friends and families faces, the love for everyone is superb. I cannot thank you and Justin enough for this, the photos on the computer are great but the album just brings it to life. If you are ever over Wadebridge area please call us for a coffee.
