Dan & Cara

June 25, 2006  |  Wedding

Yesterday I spent the day with Dan & Cara photographing their wedding. Cara’s Mom, Valerie served as Matron of honor. Cara was calm, cool and collected while Valerie was quite nervous and a bit frazzled. A warm close knit family who made me feel comfortable as soon as I walked in the door.

By the reception all the nerves had calmed and Valerie & Tom were kicking up the dance floor right along with Cara & Dan.

I received this today and was truly touched:

Dear Catherine,

We just want to extend our heartfelt thanks to you and Al for your assistance and support at Cara and Dan’s wedding. We haven’t seen the photographs yet, but we know they’ll be a reflection of your genuine warmth, professionalism, creativity and attention to detail. Your business card should not just say wedding photographer, because you are so much more than that. You’re a surrogate mother of the bride, an instant seamstress, a psychologist, a locator of lost corsages, a calming influence on everyone, and a wedding planner who keeps events flowing efficiently but unobtrusively. While you’re doing all that you somehow manage to keep your lens wide open for opportunities and we can’t wait to see your artistry. We thank you for making yourself an intimate friend for a day while giving us memories for a lifetime. We always expected a wedding photographer would provide us with a way to enjoy the wedding after it was over, but never anticipated the unique way you added to it while it was going on. You made a special day even more special by being who you are, and we thank you for that. The photographs will be a bonus.

Thank you
