Well Jessie contacted me to check my availability for a June 2009 wedding! After chatting with her she informed me that she has been checking out my website for over a year! Then she saw Joanna and Ryan’s Greenville Country Club wedding and I guess that sealed the deal!
Here is some of her first email: “I have been looking at your website eagerly for almost a year now. In helping other friends with their weddings, I started looking- and since I’m a photographer myself (but I don’t do weddings) I always like to see what others are up to. You work is breath-taking. When I got together with Joanna after her wedding and found out you shot her wedding, I was thrilled with your work! She showed me the slide shows you put together of their engagement session and the wedding, and I’m sold. I keep looking at other photographers, but can’t seem to enjoy their work as much as yours. Even though we don’t have things as set as maybe we should to start to connect with a photographer, I’ve been anxiously waiting to get in touch with you.
I was especially sold when I saw how natural Ryan was in the photos – I know that he can clam up in front of the camera, and my fiance is even worse, so I know that you will be able to make his funny-side come out!
I just wanted to introduce myself and hopefully be able to start planning, so I don’t miss out on the chance to have the photographer I want at our wedding. As a photographer, though, this is the one thing in our wedding that I insist on not skimping on. It is only one day, and the photography is the only element that lasts- I want it to be not only excellent, but an experience in and of itself.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
All the best,
Anywhoooo. She is very involved in many charity efforts….with a final goal of saving the world!!! She is very involved in Maryland SPCA. Here is one of the dogs that she help find a home! So cute!
Here is Jessie with Claudia (the pet cheetah) in Kenya.
