Thank You


I love shooting weddings. It's always a great pleasure to be with the couple and their families on their special day.

We do what we've been paid and indeed trained to do, produce wonderful pictures.

So it's always an unexpected but delightful pleasure to receive a note of thanks from the couple.

This "Thank You" card arrived in the post from Anna & Mat;

"Malcolm & Anne

A huge thankyou for sharing our special day and for capturing beautiful photos which we will treasure.

You have provided an excellent service which Mat and I have been delighted with.

Thankyou once again,

Anna & Mat."

To which I say Thanks Anna & Mat for the Thankyou:)
