Hi Wayne and Jan

Thank you so much! Words cannot express our gratitude to you and Jan for your contribution to our wedding day. You made everything go seamlessly. Your patience and support was second to none. Everyone raved about what a great ceremony it was and how great you both were and we couldn't have asked for better. I am so grateful to Genevieve and Mat for recommending you and we both cannot speak highly enough of you both - and we love the photos you put up! Thanks for doing this so quickly.

Kindest Regards Bailey (and Brad)

P.S we were relieved you got home safe xx

Thank you very much Wayne and Jan, what a truly amazing day to cherish. The photos are beautiful and it is so lovely to have these to remember the day by. Being in the mountains with our family and with Mt Aspiring as our backdrop was the icing on the cake!!!!  Tania and Lochie

Thank you so much Aspiring

Jan, thank you for you're lovely words whilst we were doing photos. It meant a great deal to me to have you there during that time. You gave me a lot of confidence and I thank you for that.

And Wayne. You being there was perfect for Del, and me.

It's no wonder that your photos, of every wedding, are so glorious. As a team, you give to both people in your own special way, and I am not hesitating to tell anyone that goes to NZ to marry, that they ought to look you up. Especially if they're exchanging vows on the South island xx

Hi Wayne and Jan

Thank you so much for being part of our wedding day yesterday. It was a bit more hectic than I expected, but I am sure that is exactly what you are used to! Especially, thank you for making us feel great on our wedding day.

“ 22/09/12 was one of the most enjoyable days of our lives, we married in beautiful scenery with beautiful people and had the day captured by amazing photographers.You  made our day so enjoyable, your enthusiasm, sense of humour and warmth is immensely admirable, we were particularly impressed with your attention to detail, you went out of your way to ensure smiling faces, straight ties and a perfectly positioned attire, your easy going energetic personalities certainly topped the day off, without  you the day could've turned out very differently.  Thank you so much”  Katie and Vaughan

Wayne, Jan and Lisa are absolutely awesome! They were so easy to work with and made a very chaotic day very enjoyable. We couldn't have picked a better photography team. The video and photos were amazing! Captured the whole day exactly the way I remembered it and even better! We wanted our wedding to be a fun and memorable wedding and the Aspiring Team fit right into it and made it even better. Thank you so much again guys. Tabitha & Wayne

We love the photos they are everything we could have ever hoped for and more. Working with you both has been so easy, nothing has been a problem. Thank you again for going the extra mile for us and arranging the helicopter, the photos that we got from Mt Roy are stunning.

Hello Jan and Wayne. I'm Becca’s Mum and I want to tell you that the photos you did for the kids are absolutely gorgeous. Thank you so much for capturing the happiness and beauty of the day for all of us and also for making it so much fun.” Diana Albright.

Jan and Wayne are the coolest. Not only are they true professionals with amazing talent but they're just the coolest people to work with. They were both so nice to Chelsea Blair Hodnett and I when they shot our wedding that it made it feel like we were working with our 2 best friends instead of photographers videographers that we met just that day. I can't thank you, Jan and Wayne, enough for everything. You've created such vivid and fantastic memories that won't fade like our memories might. Next time we're in NZ we're going to take you two up on that "real kiwi beer" you mentioned! Chelsea and Rich

Hi Guys,  We received our photos and album last week- WOW!!!! We can't thank you enough for the incredible photos and the Motion show was really emotional watching it. Our friends and family are stunned by all the Photos , their reactions are priceless. We also can't thank you enough for everything you did for us leading up to the day and on the day itself. It really was the best day of our lives and we are so pleased to have been able to share it with you all. Our dreams really did come true and we are so lucky to have the amazing photos to look back on over the years to come. Laura and James
