We received this wonderful note recently:
“Dear IQ Photo…
I have just watched your presentation for Bryce and Rita for the umpteenth time. My wife and I have been honored to be at five weddings this summer. We have been privileged to see similar presentations from all of them. I need you to know just how (a trite and overwork adjective follows) AWESOME your work is! It captured the spirit of the wedding better than I thought possible and I am transported back to the event every time I see it. I am so impressed with your work. I want to offer my congratulations for work well done and send you a great big THANK YOU!
We receive lot of positive feedback but it comes mostly from the brides, grooms, very close friends and family. The person who wrote this, was just a one of the wedding guests. Isn’t it sweet?! (Thank you Michael.)
So Masha and I decided to watch it again and, YES, we teared up a little ourselves. It seems a little odd since it’s our own work and only a few weeks have passed since the wedding.
My brother Alex, who was the videographer at this wedding, has recently posted a video of the wedding and I wanted to take an opportunity to present both versions of the same wedding. Isn’t it interesting to see how the same event can look through different media?
I could say so much about Rita and Bryce’s beautiful wedding but I’ll just keep it simple: I didn’t really feel like a photographer there, but rather a friend who happened to have a camera. I hope this wonderful feeling is reflected in my work.
