    Here is the Post from Island Forum:

    Well gals,

    It is now official

    ...Jean Marcus Strole will be my photographer for May 9th 2009...so dont even think about booking him that weekend...he is MINE!!..hehe

    After VERY MUCH research, looking at tons of photographers, not only here the on the forum, but also local photographers in St. Thomas,
    ....he is the best fit for us

    Im so freekin excited!!!

    Fist off, Im a HUGE photograpy person...I really think that this is one of the most important parts of the wedding...Pics last forever..sure you have a video..but who ever watches those., umm not even your family sadly but maybe once..pics you place all over the house and in your families houses...so this was a huge deal to me

    I have 4 Bellet's and I just bought my first Rembrant!! ... umm...photograpy is art...and I love it!

    Second, nothing is better than photojournalism...I have a photography background...WAAAYYY back in HS, but still love and respect the art, so I may not know where my reception is at yet, but I have my awesome photographer...and that is a HUGE weight off my shoulders.

    Ill be honest, since Ive been on here, looking at all the websites, I was drawn to Jean Marcus over and over, but never emailed him until I realized that I really wanted him as my photographer...I had to get over the idea that I would have to fly someone out...but honestly it really saved me money in the long run, if you compair prices and packages, with like 2 hours of photos verses 3 days full of pics...seriously it is the way to go..

    ......finally, I just said to my FI, listen this is who I want, I photog is to me, and he told me to book it, but when he finally looked at all the photogs I considered, he also felt like we had to have him.

    AHHHH...so it is official, and Im so excited!!

    Rock on...
