Farewell to friends

Rissa nailed it, we spend a lot of time with our clients. Not necessarily in person, but looking at them through their pictures. We are the only vendors that still work with our couples after the wedding is over. Everyone else you deal with before and on the day-of, *poof* gone at the stroke of midnight!

Our clients come back to us again and again because they value our work and they value the importance of good photographs throughout their lives.

In those interactions we often form a friendship. So many of our couples have become our good friends.

Sadly , two of our clients turned friends are both moving this month, and ironically, both to Chicago. We want to say farewell to Jessica & Stephen and McKenzie & Gedalya, and wish you all the best in your new lives in Illinois. Your friendship will truly be missed, but never gone because of only 700 miles.

I have many fond memories from Chicago myself. My grandfather was the head photo editor for the Chicago Tribune in the 80's and I used to visit him every summer. They lived in the twin towers downtown and until then I had never been somewhere so cold!

Seeing as how another of our couples this year already lives in Chicago, (Derrick & Heather October 4, Costa Rica), we are well on our way to establishing a following there and will more than likely make many trips for deep dish and weddings in the future.
