heywriterboy.blogspot.com I love how it still gets hits. If you're a writer, there's some craft stuff there. If you see a post that helps you let me know. I'm trying to think about how to organize the material for later.

I'm almost not sure how to fully express my happiness over the pictures Janice took for us. My wife and I wanted a journalistic sort of take on our wedding day. I specified that I didn't want too many posed photos; that I loved spontaneity of the moment. We would not be taking a video and we wanted pictures that helped us do the impossible and retain the day. Janice has a wonderful, professional manner that starts long before the event day. She has a questionnaire that helps her to get to know you better. Filling it out is fun, but on the other end what it means is that she understands some essential truths about you that enables her not just to deliver the kinds of pictures you were hoping for, but pictures that you didn't even realize you wanted. She chose visually arresting locales near our venue. We said that we wanted pictures of us laughing, and there were plenty and they were joyous. We said one of my favorite things about the venue was the light, and lo, all the photos have a beautiful, natural feel with such depth and beauty that they profoundly show off the space. Then there's the story. The story of the day for my wife Kim and I will never be forgotten because Janice got it all. It's all there. Friendly faces, interesting configurations, beautiful still lifes, stolen moments of joy -- painless posed photos that look like people who didn't have to stand around for 30 minutes getting them. My wife and I are both intermittently self-conscious about photos, but Janice unfailingly captured us at our best. I think she may have actually captured pictures of my wife that are more how I see her than how she sees herself. I don't know how one does that -- I suppose that's part of the gift. Add to that Janice herself -- an easy laugh, a kind and enthusiastic manner -- and all I can say is that there's only one decision about the day I think was a better one... and that was getting my Kim to say yes. Thank you Janice for preserving a unique memory forever, and elevating so many beautiful photos from moments in time to moments of art. All my dreams came true -- and the story of our day will live forever in your photos.
