I'm so grateful & happy after reading a feedback from the wedding couple's relatives .
"I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for capturing the best moments of JP's and Aims' wedding. I can't make it to their wedding because my children have classes and are members of string orchestras here in PA, USA, but I felt like I was there with them while looking at the photos you took. "
JP's grandma and I were both crying while looking at their wedding photos.
Again, thank you very much. GOD BLESS.
