From Clients to Friends

Us photographers are always asking the question of how do we turn our clients into friends, so that by the time the wedding rolls around it’s like we’ve all known each other for years. The best answer we’ve been able to come up with is to be lucky enough to start with amazing clients!

This weekend we had one of the best Saturdays we’ve had in long time, and it was all because of our amazing clients turned even more amazing friends. First, David (of Tiffany & David fame) stopped by to hang out for a little while. It was exactly what we needed! Mary and I have really been feelin’ the stress of planning our own wedding, since we just realized we’re about to hit the 8 month mark and we still have sooo much more to do (and pay for!). David was so great about telling us how he & Tiff dealt with everything and to just trust that in the end it will all work out for a perfect day. Their day was definitely perfect, so we feel so lucky to have them as an example and source of strength over the next few months. Thanks guys!

Later we headed up to Middletown for dinner with Alana & Dan, whose wedding we’re doing this coming July. We shot their engagement pictures this past October in Watch Hill and had SO much fun hanging out with them so we were very excited when we got an email from them inviting us to dinner at their house. It was so great..from their adorable, cozy home to the incredible food to the FOUR HOURS of non-stop laughs we have not had that much fun in a long time! Alana & Dan were high school sweethearts (how awesome is that?!) and just watching them with their kindness and care for one another, it’s so easy to see that their hearts were meant to find each other. We can’t wait for July.
