But, WOW!!! I took our wedding pictures home and showed both families and our friends in Maryland over Christmas. Everyone loves them and only had the kindest compliments. It was so nice to relive the moments over again.  But more importantly, Lars and I love them!! He tells me he looks at them everyday, and it makes deployment a little bit easier. And I tell you what, anything that can make that happen, is priceless. So from the bottom of our hearts, Thank you.

You guys did a great job and I just wanted to say thanks again.  It was a perfect day that I’m sure was captured beautifully by the two of you!  I stressed about the cost of hiring photographers b/c I had to handle that expense on my own.  However, I have to say it was probably the best decision I made and totally worth it.  Thanks for that….you guys were amazing!

Lily did such a wonderful job! She was so patient with the kids and very clear about the shots she wanted. She also allowed me to have input as well. Everyone who sees our pictures is blown away by the artistic and touching photographs. I really could not have asked for any more! We would recommend her 100% to anyone, and we look forward to working with her in the future! Sincerely, Melissa, Signal Mt Tn.
