I love them!!! There are no words to truly express how much these photos mean to me (to us!). Every memory I have of this day, and this weekend has left me with a smile, but now with these photos... I can freeze these moments & have the memories to share with others (our kids one day!) in the future. 

Sylvie, you are so special to us. Your calming presence and beautiful photographs drew us to you from the start. We think the world of you and can't thank you enough for being our photographer throughout this special time in our life.  

Thank you so much to YOU & your team. We are so grateful for you all, and your incredible talent. We just love you!!!!!

Sylvie, thanks so much. The pictures are absolutely fabulous! So fun reliving the day and seeing so many of the details I never even noticed. We'll pass the gallery around, order some prints, and can't wait for the hard drive. 

Couldn't have had a better experience working with you. Wish we could do it again! 

xoxo,

What an incredibly beautiful set of photos you have taken. Each picture brought back wonderful memories of our wedding day.  I'm also glad that you captured quite a bit of our guests in action as well it's nice to see what they got up to while we were running around! Looks like they had a grand ole time. All in all, we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day and picturesque setting to celebrate our wedding.. but more importantly such talented professionals to have captured it in such a romantic and authentic way. We are incredibly grateful to have met you!

Thank you soooo much again Sylvie! I hope we can keep in touch
xo,

- Di & Peter


Sylvie - amazingly beautiful! Cannot stop looking through them. The finale image is breathtaking. That one will be going on the wall for sure!!! Phillip and I enjoyed working with you tremendously! We were just talking about what event can she photograph next!! ;) 

Thank you so much! So exciting to get these back :) looking forward to the rest. 

Love 

Caroline and Phillip

Sylvie - THESE ARE INCREDIBLE!!! Jason and I just went through them and we sent the link to our folks and my sister - everyone agrees that it's going to be VERY difficult to choose photos to print out and for albums!! Going through these we just have the biggest smile on our face and it brings us right back to that perfect day. These are everything we could have hoped for and more! And it's super fun to see all of the little details that we were too distracted to check out during! 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Can't wait to share these! 

All our love,

Laura and Jason

We are sitting on the sofa in our living room, having just looked at our gorgeous wedding album together. It is absolutely stunning! We had no idea what to expect in terms of how the individual pages and photos would look, but it could not be more perfect. It really is some unique and beautiful artistry, and we can't thank you enough for capturing our special day so tastefully.

We will definitely cherish it for years and years to come!
