Miranda + Barnaby // Bay of Islands

 I am so thankful for stumbling onto your website…because from the moment I saw your portfolio, I KNEW you were the only photographer for us!! Little did I know that you would add soo much more to our day than simply stunning photos.  You went above and beyond our expectations in soo many ways. The whole day was so special to us and we have so many great memories, but some of my favorites were of our time spent with you on the other side of the bay.  I enjoyed our photo-shoot so much – playing around in the grass, the trees, the beach… you made it soo fun!!   I don’t normally enjoy having my photo taken, mainly because im ridiculously un-photogenic and fear the results…but you were so patient with me! Helping us get the right photo without making me feel uncomfortable about all my dorkyness!  I returned to the reception on such a huge high!!!! – which, thanks to you,  set me up perfectly for enjoying the rest of the evening!…. And then there are the photos. Ahhh..  (happy sigh)….   What can I say…? We LOVE THEM!!  Everyone loves them! My photographer friends in Canada LOVE them!!   We buzz out over them a lot. We went and got a few crappy quality ones printed from one of those kiosks just so we could stick them around the show before we pick our favorites and start on albums.  YOU are a creative genius… your editing skills…wowee! And the time and effort you put into our online album and photo preview was a generous gift in itself. I have a wee chuckle every time I look at the tiny clay people you gave us (they sit smiling at me amidst the basil and chives on my windowsill herb garden)….. AS IF our favorite and greatest gift of all – THE MEMORIES YOU CAPTURED IN OUR EXTRAORDINARY PHOTOS wasn’t enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  From the bottom of a very happy bride’s heart, THANK YOU SOO MUCH JESS!!!!
