      I don't know how you do it J-M. Sounds like you have infinte energy to do 5 days of shooting, karaoke, keep the BDW picture vultures under control, and get amazing pics at the wedding. And you do it all alone, right?

      definitely blushing. i can't tell you how wonderful it is to be so appreciated for what you do. its such an honor to be thanked by people you dont really know for doing your job, and not just the wedding party, family, or bride and groom. not many can say that and i feel very blessed

              Don't feel bad for gushing, I was just trying to be clear to other brides that JM is obviously special and you can't expect that type of treatment from any photographer. I speak from personal experience.

              Usually we put most of the importance on the photographer's portfolio, I think most brides highly underestimate the importance of good customer service (I know I did). This is especially important for a destination wedding since the photographer will be spending a lot more time with the whole group and also you will likely spend more time communicating with the photographer in advance because of the travel arrangements and all that stuff.

                oh i couldnt even imagine spending that much time with a photographer LET ALONE a single wedding day, if i didnt click with them and want to have them around me taking pics. luckily i already know who is shooting my wedding from my infinite pool of photographer friends hehehe. that is if i ever end up finding someone to marry haha

                but yes. look beyond the portfolio and give them a call. chat with them a bit. see if you can relate with them and talk to them cause you are stuck with them for a while

                    I want JM for my wedding! Oops I'm already married...maybe I'll consider that vow renewal/divorce thing, LOL. I was like Abbie and didn't think the picture thing all the way through. That's how I ended up with no posed pictures of me and DH together!

                    Maybe I'll just get another dress and have bridal pics taken?

                    I'm so happy you loved your pics and had such a great time, Jen! I can't wait to see the finished product!
