Thank you Wade for the incredible work that you’ve done!! We couldn’t have asked for photos more in line with our personalities, down to earth and natural. There are so many more in the hundreds that you sent us that I’m in love with.
So thank you again from both of us!!

Hey Kelly, you sure are in the correct zone – travel photo journalism.
You wrote an alluring account, but most of all is that your pics are stunning.
I’ve seen EVERY Cape Town post card pic, but these pics of yours are out of the box – so nice!

“Dear Wade,We have been wanting to email you since the wedding, it has just been a very hectic time.We wanted to thank you for your everything at the wedding. You have such a lovely and gentle way of being immersed in the event and with thepeople with whom you work. You have an amazing capacity to put people around you at ease and your easy going nature is so reassuring amongst

what is often the chaos of the day.

We love the photos we have seen so far- your capacity to capture the moment. We look forward to seeing the rest of them.

Many thanks,

Lindy and Paul. ”

Hi Mike,

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say a BIG THANK YOU!

For doing such an amazing job on the Maverick photos – UCS HQ has commented on the excellent quality of your work. We have had a real issue trying to choose the best photos to go into the publication – as they are all amazing.I really appreciate you going the extra mile – these feel like they are straight out of National Geographic. Which was exactly what I wanted.They really are absolutely stunning.

I look forward to many more projects with you on our team.

Mike!

You are totally one of my favourites!
Thank you for taking the extra time to get amazing photos..It makes such a difference to the publication 🙂
I am really excited for this issue – I think its going to be amazing.I can really see the extra effort you have put in to all of these shoots you have done for us.
The only issue i have is every time i get your photos the pages go up another few pages and then Philippa shouts at me :)!

Hi Mike
Thank you for the AMAZING work on this project.
Philippa is going to brief on a few more stories we need shot.
Again please keep the same style – very creative and fabulous. You totally nailed it!
The mag is over sized – so if we could please have the photos as large as possible that would be great, I will process your payment.
Best Regards
Ingrid

OMG Wade!!!
What amazing pics of my beautiful family…….Extra special to have had my five adorable ‘grandies’ together again and they certainly were a challenge to get that ‘perfect’ shot which you have managed to capture perfectly.
Thank you once again so much and it certainly was a lot of fun – sand and all!

Ah Wade, after all the photos you could have picked from our disc, you picked my absolute favourite!  I look at the photos so often to remind myself of how teeny tiny my precious boy was! You should see him now, a little chunky monkey! Thank you for the beautiful pics! We will treasure them always!

             Wade!
             These are sensational. I will be forever grateful to you for capturing these memories for us – so professionally, with such dedication and passion
             and clearly not due to the task at hand,  but rather due to true commitment and exceptional talent. I am thrilled and so pleased that you were
             available to do this for us as I know I could not have wished for anything better. May you be blessed with all the orders you deserve to take your
             business to the heights it is worthy of.  You will always be my top recommendation for those who want nothing but the best!
             I am thrilled that my recommendation to Sam and Nic proved to be so worthwhile and I know they are thrilled too.
             Thank You Thank You Thank You.

            Thank you ever so much for making our day so special. It was difficult  planning a wedding over 1000 Kilometres away but it was great to know
            that the photographer was something we did not have to worry about. Your work is amazing!  You have your own way of making the couple relax
            and be nothing else but themselves.
            You did such a great job. We are very pleased.

            I was just busy changing in the parking lot about to go for a surf when I saw Mike jogging by so  I shouted “hello!”  He returned the greeting and
            carried on running.  A few seconds later he returned to thank me for the beautiful family portraits which I had just given back to them from our
            shoot about a week ago.  For a man who doesn’t particularly enjoy having his photograph taken I took it as the ultimate compliment.  Thank you
            Mike for making the effort to turn back and for giving me some feedback from the shoot.

Your professionalism and talent truly stands out and we were so impressed with your ability to capture these stunning pictures and moments considering the weather conditions on the day (however the wind added beautiful effects).
