Max- What I am loving about your work here is that you look for the less obvious, those gentle little things that people do that would not be noticed my most photographers who do wedding pictures. If this were my weddig I would be so thrilled at the different looks you find. What an eye to see this, and then you back that up with some incredible camera work and your talent. The picture is so sharp and clear, the colors are so vivid, the details stunning. Capturing the hands in that just perfect postion phenominal.
Professional grade, genius work my friend.
Have a great day, you take care. #7790720

Reynaldo D. Reyes level-classic July 28, 2009
