"These are incredible!!! We're in love with how you captured our day. We're so thankful for your great work! I'll reach out with questions and we'll be ordering prints, I'm sure!"

Meredith & Connor

"We love love LOVE the photos! It was so fun to relive the day and I had to stop marking my favorite pictures because there are just so freaking many! I know you guys hear this all the time, but you're seriously the best. You and Matt were so fun (and calming) to have around that day and both of us totally trusted everything would turn out great - and it did. Thank you SO MUCH and we can't wait to see the album design when it's ready!"

"I just want to say thank you so much for your help designing and producing our BEAUTIFUL album. I was absolutely floored yesterday, from unwrapping the package to flipping through the book... it is everything we imagined and more!"

Ashley & Johnny

"Thank you so much for letting us know that the photos were ready! I have to admit, I'm up against this massive deadline at work, so I wound up using the photos as my "reward" for wrapping up for the day, and it was well worth the wait. :) Roey texted from the road to let me know that he loved the photos. I cannot agree more. You've done such a fantastic job capturing our life here in New York, and helping us bring our most photogenic selves to life. Even Gus looks like a rockstar. We so appreciate your attention to detail and careful planning; Roey commented after the you left that he couldn't believe you'd scoped out locations in advance. Clearly, we chose the perfect team to work with to help us commemorate the "big day." Again, thank you for sharing your amazing work!"

"These are amazing and you and Matt were the best to work with! We just woke up in Hawaii and looked through, made our day already :) Can't wait to see more, you guys are the best! THANK YOU!"

Abby & Matt

"Thank you so much for this! We love the way the photos turned out so far! You guys are amazing. My family and Brian's can't stop raving about you guys and how non invasive you guys were and captured so much but we didn't even realize you were there. We loved working with you! As someone who is a bit of a control freak, it was super cool to be able to just trust you with getting all of the things that need to be photographed and it felt like magic that they would just appear and then be put back where they went. You are so on top of things! It was such a relief for me and and a first for me. I love the photos and can't wait to see more."

"WOW! Thank you SO much! I can't stop looking at them - seriously the most amazing pictures. Thank you for capturing our day so perfectly! We are ecstatic and are so proud to share your gorgeous photos with our friend and family. I've just been staring at them for the past two hours (woops!). You were such a wonderful addition to our day, you are so calming and patient and made us feel totally at ease. We will certainly be in touch if anything else comes up, and have been highly recommending you to everyone! Thank you again. Have a wonderful weekend!"

Julia & Andy

"We are SO in love with these photos!!! How in the world did you work so FAST?!!!? Thank you, thank you - endless thank yous! We will share the link and password with our friends and family while we await the digital downloads and the album design. We also took your advice and created a "favorites" folder... so hard to pick favorites when they are all PERFECT!

Thank you again for EVERYTHING. You are spectacular. If you ever need a reference for prospective clients, please don't hesitate to share our contact info. We'd be MORE than happy to sing your praises :) You are spectacular!"

"Thanks so much for all the great work on our wedding day. We were so thrilled with you and Matt. We kept joking that we should have brought Matt on our honeymoon to capture more shots :)

Moreover, my parents were floored because they thought Matt handled the large family portraits beautifully and seamlessly. We all commented that during the reception, though we know you covered everything, we never saw either of you, allowing us to enjoy the moments of our wedding reception purely - and allow you to capture us as candidly as possible!!

We've loved what we've seen so far and can't wait to see the rest."

- Kate & Kevin

"WOW, these are AMAZING!! We love them so so much. Matt, thanks so much for such a fun afternoon in the city. We could not be happier with everything. It was a great experience and we'll definitely look back at these for the rest of our lives and remember what a good time we had taking them! We will also remember that we do not look as cool in sunglasses as we thought we did ;)

We looked through all the photos 5 times in a row trying to figure out our favorites because we loved each one of then so much. Our expectations were high, and safe to say they were exceeded. What a fun day! I didn't think it was possible to be any more excited for our wedding, but here we are!!

Thank you thank you!!"

“Hello Matt and Stevi,

Thank you so much for sending the USB drive in the mail with our wedding photos. The wooden exterior of the drive is very chic! Kathleen and I hope you are enjoying your summer. We were in Chicago at another wedding this past weekend - and we noted on several occasions (in our most judgmental voice) how their photographer was far less professional and less approachable in their presence and personality. Three cheers for Averyhouse!"

- Travis & Kathleen

It was a great pleasure working with you. Both Ben and I had a fantastic time during our engagement shoot. We are looking forward to the final product. We really enjoyed talking to you and spending the afternoon together. We want to thank you again for going out of your way and taking extra time to ensure the quality of the photos. You are a great photographer! If you ever think of visiting Toronto, definitely let us know. Ben has great recommendations about his city! :)"

"Vanessa + Matt,

That is too sweet of you guys. Wanted to pass on those features to make sure you guys saw how much people are loving your work :-)!! Can't wait to brag about you guys in my post!

I have to tell you that I gave my dad the attached photo for Father's Day (They hadn't seen the wedding photos yet…we actually just sent them out…we are a bit behind ;-), and it brought everyone to tears. Even the waitresses in the restaurant were crying! What an amazing photo you guys captured! I love the emotion in my dad's face. Thank you so much for getting this moment on "film!"

We had such an great time with you guys at the wedding. You guys are such great artists but also gems to be around. We can't thank you enough for your wonderful work. The photos are just beautiful!"

“Dear Stevi and Matt, 

I am so sorry that I have been so late in contacting you to tell you how wonderful we think the photos of Hailey and Greg's wedding are! We were all together for Thanksgiving in Chicago and it was such a treat to find your e-mail with all the photos! We spent the whole weekend pouring over them. I am still organizing my favorites and trying to decide what to get. Many of our friends have seen them too. We are all really thrilled with them! The portraits are beautiful. The small group and couple shots are great. You really captured the energy and the essence of the whole day and evening. I love all the shots you got of the Casino. You really should send some of them to Sarah Potter because she could use them to show off the club! And we especially love the action dancing photos of groups that you got! They are really fun! I can't remember your assistant's name, but please tell me that he did a wonderful job too!

Best of all we really enjoyed having you both at the party. You are true professionals, but with a down-to-earth attitude that makes you so easy to be with! Thank you so much! They will undoubtedly keep our memories of the wonderful day alive for many years to come!"

- Stephanie (Hailey’s mom) of Hailey & Greg

"Sorry for my delayed response but Andy & I want to thank you for all of your great work (including the replacement box!). We love the album and the pictures and think you did an amazing job. I'm very difficult to photograph with the excessive blinking, but you'd never know it from all the beautiful pictures. Your team was great from the day of the wedding all the way through developing the album.

Averyhouse was worth every penny and we would highly recommend you to anyone. There are so many pictures from the wedding that we love, but the images with the sun setting are some of our favorites. The pictures of my niece and nephew are also adorable. Thanks again, we are so happy you were apart of our wedding day"

"Matt, Stevi, Vanessa, & Rhodes,

Thank you SO much for making our wedding day so magical! We could not have done it without you! Our wedding day was such a magical memory for us - now instead of replaying those memories in our mind, we can look at the hundreds of pictures Averyhouse captured!

You are all so very talented and so amazing to work with!! We recommend you to everyone we know!! We miss that week in Palm Beach so much! Thank you for being so wonderful - we will keep you in mind for baby photo shoots… not yet!! xoxo"

- Samantha & Leo 

"Dear Vanessa and the Averyhouse Team,

Thank you so much for capturing our wedding day perfectly. The entire process was flawless from the initial meetings with Vanessa to the delivery of the images. Vanessa and her second shooter were amazing on our big day. They took photos that will allow us to remember every detail for years to come.

We can’t thank you enough for going above and beyond our expectations!! We look forward to our album!"

We wanted to thank you and the entire Averyhouse team for the tremendous effort on our wedding day. Everything could not have gone smoother. Vanessa is an absolute All-Star. She is terrific to work with. I also wanted to thank you for the work you did on my bow tie. It looked great all night. Hopefully our paths will cross again soon. Thank you again!"

We can’t thank you guys enough for documenting our wedding such a beautiful way! We couldn’t have worked with a better group. You guys were so professional and at the same time so warm and thoughtful. We will never forget sharing our special day with you guys. We chose this gorgeous image for all of our thank you cards! Thanks again!"

"Dear Vanessa & Jaclyn,

Thank you so much for being such a big part of our amazing wedding weekend! You were both a pleasure to work with and we can’t thank you enough for being so much fun and so patient (even after people had many drinks & the sparklers were getting a little out of control :).

We can’t wait to work with you again. Thank you for everything!"
