Lindsey had been asking to guest blog for us and I wasn't quite sure what she was wanting to do. However, when I read the things she had to say about us, I felt honored. It is true when she says we care about our clients, but how can we help it when we have such wonderful clients. Sean and Lindsey, we are so sorry for your loss, Jackie will be missed. Below is Lindsey's guest post.
It took a lot of begging and pleading, but Brandy finally let me guest post on her blog. This is my first guest post and I’m so excited about it. It’s pretty obvious that Brandy is an amazing photographer, so I wanted to write about the people that Brandy and Justin are.
We met Brandy & Justin three years ago, when we hired them to photograph our wedding. We trusted them to capture one of the most special days of our lives, and they become our best friends, not to mention, our wedding photos are amazing.
Since then, we have made a lot of great memories and taken some incredible photos, but I want to tell you about one shoot in particular, one that we will I always treasure and never be able to look at without fighting tears.
When I met my husband, he had a very special woman in his life, his beloved dog Jackie. This dog was really something special and she will forever hold a big part of our hearts. Jackie worked so hard for us, always willing to retrieve in any conditions we asked her to. She started to get sick and we fought hard for her, buying her an extra 3 years with us. In that time, I think she captured Brandy & Justin’s heart too.
A couple weeks ago, we knew that Jackie’s time had come and that she would want to leave this earth with her dignity intact. We made an appointment to have her put down and I called our friends to tell them the news. Brandy was super busy with all kinds of things going on, but her and Justin dropped everything and came over that morning. We went outside and played with Jackie; we threw birds for her and hugged her, and even made her an ice cream sundae. The camera was on hand and we captured some of the most touching, amazing photos I’ve ever seen.
Like I said, it’s pretty obvious that Brandy is amazingly talented, but it is so much more important to realize that her and Justin are truly good people. They are the kind of friends that most people can only hope to have. They really care about every single client and every single photo, I know this because I hear them talk about it often, and I can see it in the way they are committed to their work.
Brandy & Justin, thank you for all that you’ve done for us, there aren’t words big enough to express our gratitude.
