Dee 
" Thank you so much for taking Spiro's baptism pictures! As you know, his baptism is one of the biggest days of his life and we can't thank you enough for preserving that for us! "



 Bungum
Chicago, Illinois
" I was fortunate enough to be invited to interview for the Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford, and one of the secretaries who received my application took me aside during the day-long event and told me that when she opened my application packet and saw my picture (taken at MVP Studio), she thought to herself, "This is the one."  Apparently, the interview panel of the Rhodes Scholarship didn't agree with her, but I sent the same picture to the Marshall Commission and will be traveling to Oxford this fall on a Marshall Scholarship.  Without MVP Studio, I certainly would not be on the path I'm on right now, and I recommend that all students have plenty of MVP portraits on hand to submit to job and scholarship applications. "



 Rizzo
St. Emily's & Fountain Blue
" We would like to express our sincere appreciation for the wonderful job you did with our wedding photos and album.  We are grateful to have such beautiful pictures to remember our special day!  We truly enjoyed working with your company and will continue to recommend your services to others.
Thank you again for everything "

 Lucarelli
Holy Name & Peninsula Hotel
" Wow! The wedding album is beautiful! Your designer (I do remember meeting her and how nice she was) is truly creative and imaginative, and this will be such a heartfelt keepsake of Michelle & Dave's special day. We are so excited! "



 Rizzo
St. Emily's & Fountain Blue
" Bill, Thank you so much for leaving me a message yesterday letting us know that our album layout was ready for viewing.  I'm sure you are busy shooting a wedding or two this weekend, so I thought I would send you a quick e-mail instead of calling.  Anthony and I have looked at our album layout and are soooo happy with how it turned out!!  It totally exceeded our expectations and we are thrilled at how creatively our 'wedding story' is told :) The more we look at the album, the more in love we are with it.  When picking out the pictures, I had ideas in mind on how they would be grouped together to tell the story- you and your designer did an excellent job in putting things together- exactly what Anthony and I had in mind!! "



 Costello
" This is Erin Costello, the Day of Coordinator for the Zellinger/Antonopoulos wedding a little while back. I have viewed the proofs online a couple of times already, and really love how the photos turned out. You did a great job capturing the feeling of the day and making sure Fran looked gorgeous! I will be sure to recommend you to future brides! "



 Cardilli
" We can't thank you enough for all your hard work photographing our wedding. You and Igor worked non-stop.  The wedding proofs are beautiful-Thank you so very much.  Three people have approached me requesting your business card.  Of course I have given them your info, I hope it comes through for you. "



 Kalomas
St. Andrews Greek Orth. Church
" You should teach a class on how to photograph a Greek Wedding.  You were so discrete, I didn't even know that you were there. "



Lara & Sam Jaffe
Hotel Orrington
" I thought our event was so fabulous and I wanted Chicago Social Magazine to see the pictures, and they are interested in featuring our wedding photos in the magazine! "



 Mostaccio
" All of the pictures you took were beautiful - if only I had known about you when I got married last year!  Great job! "



 McCotter
" Hi Bill,
You probably thought I was just another crazy bride when I called you in May, four days before our wedding, saying that we needed a new photographer. I have never regretted hiring you, but after reading this article from today's Daily Herald my decision has been validated even further...

I know it's hard to spend your entire Saturday working but hopefully you had time to enjoy the day yourself. "



 
" I was just looking at my wedding photographs.  You guys did such a good job, I'm so happy with them.  It amazed me to see what you guys did, you did such a good job. "



 
" Thanks for the quick reply. The photos are gorgeous!  I can't wait to receive them. "



 
" Bill, I'm just sending this as a follow-up. I really appreciate your help
(& your quick turn-around) on this. You guys are always just terrific to
work with. "



 
" Bill, the pictures look beautiful I have received a lot of compliments, which is good, especially since there were three or four other weddings that I saw this summer and I was so happy comparing my pictures to others!  I was very happy! "



 
" Thank you so much for the most amazing photos of my daughter Lisa's wedding on May 28.
You really captured the spirit of the day & of our celebration.  Everything, every aspect of wonderful memories will be preserved.  The quality of composition of your work is outstanding and is most appreciated.
Best of luck in your future work & we will always provide a reference for your company. "

 Jaeger
" Thank you for the beautiful job you did on our family portrait.  It looks stunning in our living room.
Thanks again! "



 
" I am writing to thank you for the fantastic job you did with our wedding.  We couldn't have asked for a team more professional, from our first meeting to the Big Day to our wedding album and pictures.  We will recommend you to anyone we know that is planning a big event.
Thanks Again! "



 
" Excuse my delay in writing this note, but I think I've finally recovered enough from the wedding and wanted to thank you and your assistants for the absolutely  beautiful pictures of Kara and Pete's wedding.  Everyone who has seen the pictures asks, who was the photographer? I ve never seen pictures like this...etc.
I also wanted to thank you for all the patience and kindness you showed thoughtout the day and night!
Many Thanks "



 
" I wanted to write you and thank you for your beautiful photography for my wedding on July 27th.  I have known your studio for many years and I've known your work.  Throughout the years you have always maintained a very consistant, professional image and I am happy to see how your business has now grown.
The pictures from the wedding came out absolutely  beatiful.  I don't think there is one bad one and I'm already having a difficult time choosing specific ones for the album.  You really captured some very special moments on camera and you also created some very unique images.
Thank you so much for providing me with such beatiful and lasting memories.  You are truly talented and I wish you continued success and growth! "



 
" I wanted to write you a note not just to you but also to anyone who is considereing using MVP as their wedding photographer.  Scott and I are so pleased that we picked you to be the photographers in whom we would entrust the crucial job of capturing our special event in pictures.  I can't tell you how overjoyed I was in viewing the proofs (and so qucikly!) the day we got back from our honeymoon.  Every picture seemed to be carefully planned, down to the last detail of the  bouquet placement, the tilt of the head, and the arrangement of the groups of guests.  It seems like you were able to get the perfect representation of each aspect of our day.
A lot of other phoptographers that we looked at (and believe me, we did our homework) had their "Brag Books" of sample pictures, but I've seen too many other bride's real proofs and noticed a drastic difference - lack of creativity, missed shots, and even un-centered pictures!  To a bride on a budget their lower price at first was tempting - but even before I've put in my final order, I am so glad that I did not make the mistake of choosing a photographer on price alone.  I know I would have been sorely disappointed.
There is no way to go back and re-do an entire day opf photos, especially not a wedding day.
(I am left with one problem though - there are too many good shots to choose from!) "



 
" I know that as a bride, I wanted to check out every purchase I made, checking references, etc.  I would be happy to give you a personal reference any time you need it!  (If you want, you could even have the bride give me a call (847)***-****)
I can't begin to thank you enough.  I'm serious, have the brides call me!
Sincerely,
Joy & Scott "
