….when someone at the wedding approaches me towards the end of the wedding and tells me “You are doing just a fantastic job”! Inside, I’m thinking, “How do you know, you haven’t even seen these images yet, they could be horrible for all you know”. BUT what they are really saying is, “you did such a fantastic job interacting with everyone and we had a great EXPERIENCE working with you!. THAT my friends is SUCH an awesome compliment! BUT if I’m being honest with you, my ALL TIME FAVORITE compliment that I’ve ever received…..came from one of my grooms.
It was the end of the night and I had gone over to say my goodbyes to the Bride and Groom and to thank them for having me. The crowd was rowdy but the groom turned to me in the most serious way and put his arm around me and said, ” I’m really particular with my money, ask my wife, she’ll tell you….BUT YOU were WORTH EVERY penny we have spent” and he had a tear in his eye. A few weeks later we ran into each other again at the grocery store. He marched right up to me and said, “I know I told you at the wedding, but I’m going to tell you again, YOU were WORTH every penny we paid you-we had the most amazing experience…thank you”. From a groom….THAT’s HUGE! ALL of that before seing any of their images! <insert big cheesy smile>
I can’t WAIT to get started on my 2012 season….March can’t get here fast enough!
