Drive By Photographing

I will photograph every chance I get it helps me understand light
and it keeps photography fun for me.
I’ll share my entries with you
My good friend Nicole came for a visit from Martha’s Vineyard I took this photograph
while she drove. Pretty cool, the road was lit by honda headlights and whatever ambient light was left from the
sunset moments earlier.

Hi Millie,

I absolutely love my album and the pictures for the walls. The moms were very happy too.

You know I wasn’t into the whole wedding thing like most typical brides. Out of everything with the wedding, my biggest hope was just to have a few pictures that I liked. I never imagined that I would have an entire album of pictures that I love. In addition, I love many many pictures that didn’t make the album.

I just want you to know that I couldn’t be any happier with the pictures. I truly think that one of the reasons why the pictures turned out so nice is because I like you so much. Taking pictures is very uncomfortable for me and you can usually see it on my face in pictures. I felt very comfortable with you and I actually looked at you as a friend that day that just so happened to be taking some pictures.

Please have any potential customers email or call me if they ever want a referral for you. The best decision that my mom and I made for the wedding was hiring you as the photographer.

Thanks for everything.

Nicki

Andre & Adrienne

This is what the Giddens had to say when all was done…

the result of working together to create these beautiful images is that Andre & Adrienne, Amara Mae and Amara’s proud G-mom, Marietta Simpson, the fabulously talented “Mezzo” soprano who’s voice has been touched by the voice angels…well we’re just friends now and the re-pore will keep us sharing professionally and as friends hopefully for a very very long time.

Although we hired Millie to be our wedding photographer, when our wedding day came, I quickly learned that she was so much more than that.  Millie transcended her role as wedding photographer and essentially became an assistant wedding coordinator on our big day.  She not only captured the priceless and precious memories of our wedding, but she calmed my frazzled nerves as I got dressed, helped my groom tie his bow tie, tried to keep us on schedule, danced with guests and joked with our families.  I have learned from my wedding day that no matter how tight your budget is, the photographer is absolutely not the place to cut corners.  You need the best to capture your memories.  The day goes by so quickly and once it is over, all you have are your photographs.  Millie is the best and it was an honor to spend my wedding day with her!  She was one of the first people I texted when our daughter was born and I will continue to use her for all our photography needs!

Just when you think it’s the end you find out it’s really only the beginning. I received a text message from Andre on Saturday May 1, 2011

Andre Baby Is Coming Today

In true Millie fashion I respond “Yippee Straight from God”

Andre  You Know It

New Message.. Andre took this with his cell phone and quickly sent it to me, how cool the times we live in.

On May 9, 2011 I was able to meet Amara Mae Gittens in person and she is absolutely adorable

I know she melts you:) Thanks it was fun getting to meet Amara Mae!

I enjoy the emails I receive from my brides and grooms this small portion of an email dated Oct 7, 2010

By the way, I just wanted to say again thank you soo soo much for convincing us not to sacrifice quality for our budget.  You were an indispensable part of our wedding and we could not be happier to have had you there.  So thank you again!

Attention to every detail

Talented hands, gentle hands, loving hands all had a part in the fairy tale

She’s ready and he’s waiting

You can feel this moment

undefined

Brandon & Shanna are most comfortable when they are at least this close to one another and it shows

undefined

undefined

beautiful people attract beautiful people the beauty is in their character and it carries outward

This is the point in which the clouds had a brief moment of victory, everyone was ushered in to take cover,

and just like that, the rain stopped and the ceremony proceeded  with no further interruption.

undefined

I DO!

undefined

Shortly after everyone was done having the main course someone yelled “RAINBOW”!

undefined

It was memorable and sweet.

undefined

It always ends to soon when everyone is having a good time

I encourage my brides and grooms/eventual friends to comment on the photographs once they have their albums.

From Shanna & Brandon….

Hey Millie,

OMG OMG OMG!!! I LOVE our wedding album! The album is so amazing! It turned out terrifically beautiful. In the album were Brandon and I are sitting and I am laying a little back on Brandon the whole page is just us with the water in the back round the sand surrounding us and that antique color look, OMG that was breathtaking! Every page I got chills it was incredible. Brandon and I really thought the two photos of us with the rainbow was insanely awesome. That was extremely gorgeous words can not describe it. The album is so extraordinary. Millie you did such an exceptionally wonderful work! We are so happy with the album its fabulous!

~Shanna and Brandon 🙂
