The only experience you need is doing things quick and dirty when I know you would rather take your time and be creative. You are a very creative guy. But unfortunately couples don't usually give you time to do your magic. Just keep doing what you are doing, because it's working. You know what you COULD have done, but given the time restrictions, can't. Believe me, the couple is still going to be happy as clams. You had a certain amount of time, and you used it well and creatively. We all go to sleep after a shoot wishing we had more time. But it's what you did with the little time you had that matters. And let's be frank....99.9 percent of the brides wouldn't know the differnce in what could have been, and what is, to save their lives, right? They are just thankful you got their personality down on film (or cards) and they couldn't be happier.
And you are definately to "our level" and have been for a long time. I love your photos. You see things so diffently than we do. And you do an awesome job. Any bride is lucky to have you. And you know, or at least I hope you do, that we are always here for you. Seeing you succeed is out greatest happiness. We saw it in you long before I think you saw it in yourself. You are a true natural talent, and we are rooting for you.
Thanks Cindy, I will be coming to you for advise for a long time! It'll be.. (5 years from now) oh crap whats he need now....

I'm with you on that Kelly. I want people to see my formals and get excited about them not, oh look uncle Edd's head is chopped off..... Just Kidding, but I'm not in a way. I would like my formals to hold interest, not just pages that get flipped past until some one dies and you pick up the album to reminisce about them.
