There's nothing better than a surprise, and coming from me that means a lot. I have a hard time letting anyone surprise me, and I usually figure out what's going on before anyone has a chance to surprise me with anything. So, when I got home from work this evening to a package from a wedding client wrapped in brown paper, I got kind of excited. I wasn't expecting a payment or anything, so I didn't know what to expect. The package had adorable little drawings all over the outside like so:
And these... (please excuse the hipster iPhone Hipstamatic pictures)
I really wanted to keep the packaging all neat and in tact, so I carefully peeled off the tape from one side, and was planning on doing so on the other, but really couldn't wait to find out what was inside, so I went a little wild and tore it open.
Inside was a book, and not just any book, but a book about (from what I've gathered from the inside cover) a girl named Mackensie who is a wedding photographer who loves capturing the happiness in others, and has to learn to make her own happiness (or something along those lines)...anyhow...it looks perfect, and I cannot wait to start reading it!
Not just that, but she included a Starbucks gift card, a sweet note and a copy of the name card from her wedding invitations which makes me so excited for her December wedding! It's so fun to get such a thoughtful (and personal) gift from a wedding client, and I truly appreciate the kind gesture. Thank you so much, Shannon, and I look forward to photographing your wedding in just a few weeks!
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday, and if you have a second, check out the new version of www.annependleton.com ...but more on that later.
