I met you at a bridal show and was immediately sold by your personality. I knew right away that you were someone I could trust. You made such an incredible difference on our wedding day! Dave and I felt like you were a member of our family. You put everyone at ease including our DJ. Looking back now, it touches my heart when I think about how willing you were to venture to different locations so we could get pictures with our grandmothers who couldn’t come due to their ailing health. And the pictures with our dog Kirby are just precious!

You accommodated all of our requests and we thank you! Words can't describe how much we love our pictures. You are awesome at your job, and it's obvious you love what you do! Thank you Don! ~Love, Marilyn & Dave Rolfe
