Natalie & Michael Refalo
It’s Natalie & Michael here. We just wanted to say a very big THANK YOU for not only all the amazing and beautiful photos you were able to capture on our special day but to also say thank you for taking the time to sit down with both Michael and I and also my parents to plan our wedding album. We are so delighted, thrilled and very happy!! Words truly can’t describe just how happy we are with our wedding photos. Every single individual photo tells a story about our special day, you captured every moment and emotion.
We can’t wait to get our album, its very exciting. Thank you again John for everything, your talent is truly amazing and we were so fortunate to be able to have you as our photographer.
We look forward to viewing our proofs on the internet. As soon as they are loaded we will be sure to tell our family and friends
Kind Regards, Natalie & Michael Refalo

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
I’m writing to sincerely thank you for your exquisite work on our wedding album, I know you witnessed my emotion and joy when I viewed the album for the first time in your studio but I wanted to write and again express my gratitude for how perfectly you captured our wedding day.
Looking through the album takes me back to every moment I put so much love and thought into planning the wedding and it was the most perfect of days. You have been able to reflect this love, attention to detail and perfection that strived to create and that means the world to me. For me, the wedding was like a fairytale and you have told the story in images that portray that fairytale.
I am taken back to the emotion of the day, to how I felt when each photo was taken when look through the album.
The photos are works of art I remember being so impressed the first night we met you and viewed some examples of your work. The creativity you showed us was exactly what I wanted and now when I look through the album I see myself and my wonderful husband reflected back so beautifully in such a creative way. I can imagine in time people looking at these photos of me and thinking ‘WOW’, just as I did when I first saw your work.
I absolutely love each photo that you enhanced for us and I am so pleased we invested in the enhancements as this ‘Art’ is what makes our album different to every other wedding photo album on bookshelves around the world. I think our wedding was very unique in a number of aspects and now the photography we have to remember this day shows off that uniqueness and beauty.
There are so many of the photos that I love, but there are two in particular that take my breath away. The first is the panoramic of the garden where we were married. It is incredible – like being back there in the moment. You can’t ask any more from your wedding photos than that. The second is the enhanced photo of us in the background of the garden with the daffodils and pink blossom tree – it is so beautiful that you can’t imagine that it is real. But it was and that photo captures the fairytale that was our wedding.
I also want to thank you for making sure the album was delivered in time for us to take overseas to show Rolf’s dad. You can’t imagine how much it meant to all of us to be able to tell the story of our wedding, introduce him to my family and our friends, and share our love for each other through your photography. He was so grateful for this as it was very disappointing for him to have not been able to be there in person.
John, I think you are a true master and genius. What you do every day brings pleasure to so many, and not just for one time, but over and over again throughout a lifetime. I will use our album to tell our love story to our children and I hope they will treasure it as we will treasure it throughout our lives.
I won’t say farewell as we will be back in touch soon to order an enlargement for our home, and hopefully you will also be able to add to our album with photos of us as the years go by and of our children when they come along too.
Thanks once again and know that we made the very best selection in choosing you as our wedding photographer.
Kind regards and best wishes always,

I wanted to make a special mention and thank you for the Docksides referral of Mr John Laham of Expressions Photography whom we chose as our photographer.
John is a very personable, humorous and patient professional. He was able to make the most of every situation capturing many crazy fun and memorable moments that just would not have happened on a bright sunny day and perhaps not be all photographers. Not to mention I detest having my photo done so the fact that john was able to get a number of good shots of myself is a feat within itself.
We would highly recommend him to any of our friends and family, and hope that you continue to hold him high on your referral list to give to any prospective couples needing a photographer on their special day, or to any organisation even that needs a professional to capture their special event.

I am writing to say thank you so much for the recommendation the dockside group made in regards to John Laham from Expressions photography.
I was married at WatersEdge on March 13 this year and had already organised a photographer which unfortunately fell through 6 week out from our wedding.
As you can imagine we were extremely distressed but both Kristie and Nicky recommended we contact John to see if he could help us out.
I cannot speak more highly of him, from the first meeting he was extremely helpful and a joy to be around.
John became a massive part of our wedding day and he could not have fitted in any better with all our guests and family, 6 weeks later and people are still raving about him.
We recently met with him again to view our photos and make our album and I was stunned by the photos he captured, all 950 of them, they are absolutely stunning.
If at all possible please pass on to him and your directors how truly happy we were with him, he is definitely an asset to the company having him as a supplier, I would not hesitate in recommending him to any of my family or friends.
Kind Regards Francesca Johnson

John from Expressions photography was something else and I would refer him to absolutely anyone for their future special occasion.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you wholeheartedly for your part in capturing the most momentous day in our lives. From the very start you struck us as someone who has true passion for their work, who understands it completely, and carries out to the highest standard. From our first meetings, right through our wedding day itself and now to putting together our albums with us, we know that you have been the best choice as our photographer.
As we found out there are so many people available to so this task, but we saw in your previous work and most definitely in your work with us, that you do not just take photographs of the day, you capture moods, feelings, thoughts and “expressions”, and each photo says so much about that instant that was captured. We have not seen any other photographer who could compare to your level, or produce such photos as you have, that could show such substance and meaning. Your photos are more than just an image taken by a camera; they are moving pieces of art. The way you interacted with us and our guests brought out the best in each moment and we see this in every shot you took – The day itself was incredible and for you to show that and more in your work is invaluable to us and everyone who looks at our wedding photos.
We already have, and will continue to refer you to everyone we meet who may need a photographer. We loved every aspect of what you brought to our wedding day and captured from it. The essence of the day was represented perfectly in your work and we cannot thank you enough. Everyone who has seen the photos has been extremely impressed with the quality of each and every one, and we are so proud to have such a beautiful representation of our day. Your attention to detail, level of service and absolute perfection has resulted in an extraordinary experience which we will treasure and display with pride.
Yours faithfully Mark and Chrysoula Collaros
