Dear Jim, I just wanted to send a quick note to tell you how pleased I am with the final outcome of the Cannon Beach photographs. The 8x10 of me overlooking the ocean is mounted on my Cannon Beach "wall" and it carries me right out to the ocean daily. The one of me reading reminds me of the thinking and reflecting I do on my annual retreats out there. And the one I chose for the Christmas cards is, as a few others have said, a very natural picture of me in my favorite place in the world.
I am so glad I decided to do this and that I chose you
to help me capture what I've experienced at the Oregon Coast for over
40 years. It is well worth the investment. I will recommend you to
my West coast friends who inquire about the picture on the card as
well as those from back here for whom I do "Oregon coast training" when
they are heading out your way.
Dear Jim, Thank you for your patience
in waiting for us to choose the prints we like. The weather may not
have been perfect but the occasion and situation were! Thanks again
for the pleasant and professional manner in which you helped us celebrate
my parents 50th Anniversary.
Hello Jim: The pictures that you took
of my family look really great, thanks for capturing a great moment
in Cannon Beach. Regards
Jim: Cathy and I just opened the package
with your proof prints from our Cannon Beach photo session. We’re
just thrilled – the choices are going to be tough. I appreciate
your fine work. We're really thrilled.
Jim, Thank you so much for the beautiful
work! We are more than pleased with the photos documenting our wedding
day. Most of all we thank you for your professional attitude in the
whirlwind of the day. We were amazed with the quality of the photos!
We really do love them.
Hi Jim, A note to say hi, and wish
you a great summer. We took this photo of our framed portrait. It looks
great in our main living area above the fireplace. We get compliments
on it all the time and you can imagine how it starts conversations
about the Oregon coast, which we love to elaborate on. Our home is
mostly contemporary and our portrait is just the warmth we need. Take
care and best wishes from Oklahoma.
Jim – Here are the proofs back
and our order…thank you so much for the extra time…we are
so very happy with our photos – I think they are the best I’ve
seen, but I suppose every bride thinks that! Thank you so much,
Good job!! Jim. We are happy with the pictures! Thank
you very much.
Thanks Jim for the Great Work!! We love the photos.
I am the Gramma in the pictures you took of our family June 6 on Cannon
Beach, Oregon. You also took pictures of me with my four grandchildren.
I saw the proofs you sent my son and daughter-in-law yesterday at the
twin's birthday and they are beautiful. I have to tell you these are
the best pictures of me I have ever seen since I was two: I typically
do not photograph well..
My name is Ilene P. and you did a family portrait of us two years
ago. I want you to know how much we have enjoyed that portrait. It’s
been one of our favorites. We are returning to Cannon Beach this
summer and would like to have another portrait taken.
Jim: Thank you for the wonderful
pictures, Dan & I love them.
Mr. Stoffer: Wanted to write and
thank you for letting us borrow your pictures and albums. They are
beautiful pictures and they looked great in our booth at the wedding
Hi Jim: I wanted to let you know
that we got our proof prints and we are all very impressed. I regret
that I didn’t send this email before because we were all astonished
at how beautiful the photographs turned out. I wanted to thank you
for being there for us, and being our photographer.
Hi Jim, Wouldn’t you know,
the proofs arrived the same day I emailed you! They are great! I’m
so pleased! We’re having fun looking through them and trying
to decide which ones to choose. My goodness there are some good shots
of all of us. Thank you, thank you!! The background, the lighting,
the poses, it all worked. We really appreciate your time and talent
in helping us capture our family at this time of our lives (before
the gray hair sets in! LOL!). Be talking with you soon.
Wow!! Did you ever come through for our family. Prints
were done, professional advice was given for selecting a black and
white to have duplicated and smiles were on all faces. Of course, your
name and reputation opened the door and prompted the smiles; daughter
and granddaughter are in NYC now – the modeling starts in earnest
on Monday. I’ll let you know how things go from here. My true
joy was seeing my grand daughters face as she moved from uneasiness
to confidence with her portfolio. You are a gift to us.
