When Melissa and John hired me to photograph their wedding at Harmony Winelands, I had no idea how it was going to change my life and my career.

I love all my clients, because I really do have the greatest clients around. (Okay, so I’m partial, I admit.) But Melissa and John are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. Ever. Melissa is so sweet in a girl-next-door, non-saccharine, genuine kind of way, that it makes you want to be a better person. It makes you want to say “please” and “thank you” more often, just so you can be as nice as her.

Not only did we have the pleasure of shooting their beautiful wedding at Harmony Wynelands in Lodi, but I’ve also been blessed enough to photograph them as a family after they had their first child, a sweetie named Rocco, and I’m getting ready to photograph them again with their newest edition, Louie.

Happy anniversary, Melissa and John! Thank you for making me part of your lives, and I’m so glad to have Melissa as a friend!
