a word of thanks

Dear Rachel,

I think I speak for both Erik and I that we couldn’t have chosen a better photographer for our wedding.  I knew the moment we had our meeting at Starbucks when you immediately commented on my freckles that you were the right person for the job.

The pictures from the wedding are beyond amazing, I don’t think I can even tell you how much I love them.  I can really see what the day was through the pictures you took because quite honestly I’ve already forgotten so much.  I can’t get enough of them, they really ad the last final touch to a wonderful experience for us.

I also need to tell you personally that you really made me feel great during this whole experience and I was very nervous as I was not a skinny bride.  I was in awe how beautiful you’ve always made me look in ways I didn’t think was possible.  I was worried the whole thing would actually make me feel worse about myself but it ended up being quite the opposite.  I can never thank you enough.

    That is such a beautiful letter and such a tribute to you, Rachel, not just as a photographer, but as the beautiful person you are. You have made me so proud of who you are inside most of all, and also I am in awe of your artistic creativity and boldness and the way you will look at something and see an entirely different thing than anyone else.

    Saying that you “think outside the box” seems like a total understatement. I remember when you were small you would take photos and cut them into shapes and put them in combinations and places like I had never seen. At first it seemed almost sacreligious (cutting up a 4X6 photo??????) and then I began to understand a little how your mind works and appreciate your uniqueness.

    What I want to know is where did this come from?

    I don’t even think my email did justice to what I wanted to say, I’m a total sap but it meant a lot to me. Especially now to have these amazing pictures to last my whole life and to show exactly what that day was really about: love and fun. I’ve recommended you to so many people, even women I know who aren’t engaged yet say they will use you as their photographer. On top of all that, you’ve inspired my photography. I’ll shut up now, I swear I’m not a dangerous stalker just a friendly one.
