Self Doubt, Wedding Reviews, and Sharing Images

So, last month Bethaney wrote me a really wonderful review – full of details of things she appreciated and how I made her and Adam feel in their engagement photos and wedding day. Here is the thing – they had only seen one single photo from their wedding. And they still wrote me a full review.

That means the world to me. But I didn’t want to post about it until I had send them all their photos.

Honest wedding review from clients

I don’t know how to say this.

I still get nervous every time I deliver a wedding.

Every. Single. Time.

Sometimes I wait a day to send the final email with gallery information. Because what if this time, my client isn’t happy. What if they see something they think I’ve missed, or see themselves in a way I didn’t. What if, what if.

So, every time I get an email back from a client saying that they love their photos, or they cried looking through them, or they’ve just shared the gallery with all their family, I want you to know this – I breathe a sigh of relief and joy. Every. Single. Time.

Its not like I doubt my abilities to document people, but I still know that weddings are a uniquely emotional time. A singular moment to bring together family. I know how important it is, and how subjective it can feel to view photos of yourself. I know that my business future depends on this client being happy, and delivering the best photos for this wedding.

Every. Single. Time.

So, now I’d love to share the review from Bethaney and Adam.

LOVE Becca Dilley. By far one of the best choices we made was booking Becca. She made us feel comfortable and was all around great to work with. We had an engagement session with Becca and loved all of our photos. After the engagement session we were both excited to work with Becca for the wedding. Before the wedding she provided a guide to photos that we would want, an out of town guest guide to restaurants and called us a week before to nail down all the details. Not only was she a great photographer but all around she helped out so much on the day. Kept us on schedule, helped with my dress, and kept a four year old flower girl attention during photos. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Becca. Book her and you will not be disappointed.
