Sharing Client Love – What Are Clients Saying About Us

Over the years, we have received so many wonderful cards and notes of appreciation from a multitude of happy wedding customers!  This post is all about sharing some of that ‘client love’ with our readers.

The following are just a few of the unsolicited comments from past clients that we have had the pleasure of working with over the years. It also inlcudes a few expressions from other wedding professionals from around Central IL. This is a small selection, out of all the cards, e-mails and FaceBook messages that we have received. It’s your expressions that make this job, this business so much fun and so satisfying. These are in no particular order.

I’d also like to thank all of my past and current employees for all of their help and excellent customer service that they have provided to my clients. First, the very talented designer Samantha, Katelyn “the crazy one”, then Jesstine “Ms. Sweetness” and now the multi-talented Hannah. Where would I be without your help? You have all been so wonderful!

I’d also like to thank a short list of 2nd photographers who have provided wonderful wedding day help: Charles, Deythean, Bridget, Angie, Mark and Scott. I hope that I’m not forgetting anyone.

Please note, many of the comments have a link to the actual wedding being mentioned.


Dear Mark and Hannah,

Thank you so much for the wonderful work you've skillfully helped, create, and completed for us over the last year. You have been incredible to work with, always so very patient throughout all phases of the work, and always a joy to work with. Your photographs you've captured in our engagement session and wedding session are absolutely awesome, we love every single one! Your work (not just what you've done for us, because obviously we're a little besides, haha) is unparalleled to any other wedding photography I've seen. From the bottoms of our hearts, singly thank you for everything you've done so far for us.

Hope you both have happy (and safe) holiday seasons.

We can't wait for the wedding album! 🙂

Matt and Hailey


Mark and Hannah,

Ben and I can not thank you enough for making our wedding experience so special. From the initial meeting to the big day, you both have made us feel important, special and at ease. What you both do is truly an art and the moments you have captured through this experience is something few can do.

Ben and I are forever grateful to have crossed your path.

Dear Mark & Jess,

I wanted to send a quick note of thanks for helping us on our wedding day! The pictures are so much better than I ever hoped they could be! I cannot believe how wonderfully they turned out! (And after combing through 10 times, I've gotten a good look at all of them!) 🙂

Thank you so much! Thank you also for being so easy to work with - you made the day a breeze - we were so grateful! We've got so many beautiful pictures to remember the best day of our lives - thank you!

All the best,

Mary and Dan


Dear Mark & Hannah,

When we were planning our wedding, we were sure that the photographer will be the most important person. In the long search we had, for photographer, your work is not comparable to any other wedding photographer. We are absolutely in love with every single picture of our day that, we can't stop looking at them over and over. More important than us, is our parents, they couldn't be with us, bout our pictures were a great gift to them, it made them so happy and we owe you this to you.

It was our pleasure to get to know you two and we'll be thankful for that forever. Thanks for everything you did for us. We enjoyed every step of working with you.

Now we'll move onto the album part (can't wait for that 🙂 )

With Best Regards,

Zahra + Masoud

They are all so good that this mother is going to have a terrible hard time choosing which one to purchase. Thanks again!! The quality of you pictures are so good and the amount of pictures you took was just perfect, your promptness  was the best I have experienced to date,and I have married off two prior to Maci. Thanks again for your pictures and telling"Their Story" a story she'll never forget. It was a perfect day from the beginning to the end.You have done an amazing job and you will be highly complemented.

Mark & Hannah

We love our photos and our album! Thank you for doing such a beautiful job and for being so easy to work with from start to finish. Your professionalism and creativity surpassed all of our expectations. Thanks for capturing so many special moments. You guys are the best!

~Allison + Ian

Dear Mark,

Thank you so much for the extremely professional services you provided before, during and after our wedding. You came to us highly recommended and you have certainly lived up to those expectations. You captured so many wonderful memories for us, and we are so grateful for your expertise. Many of our guests raved about the artistry of your photos and praised them as the nicest wedding pictures they have even seen. We couldn’t agree more. Our family and wedding party felt so relaxed having someone so kind and easy going as Scott and you photographing them, and we were so impressed at the many pictures you took without us even being aware you were there. 🙂  

Our guest book with our engagement photos has become one of our most precious keepsakes and the album and slide show you put together was phenomenal. You have been such a pleasure to work with, and we are really looking forward to having you as our family photographer in the future.


Scott and Emily


What a pleasure it always is to work with you! Just wanted to say thank you for your phenomenal work on Scott and Emily's wedding. The pictures are gorgeous (of course). I love knowing that my clients are in such good hands when you’re their photographer.

I look forward to working with you again soon. 🙂

Dear Mark and Katelyn,

A year has passed since our wedding day, but because of your exceptional ability to capture the essence of a moment, we are able to relive that special occasion as if it were yesterday. Throughout our entire experience with you, from the engagement session to the reception, we were continually impressed by your professionalism. During what could have been a stressful event, not only did you provide the highest level of service, but also made us feel comfortable and at ease! Your photographs represent a beautiful combination of art and reality – you exceeded all of our expectations and desires! We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your quality work, service, and friendship.

With Love and Sincere Gratitude,

Bill and Ruthie Walter

I have had a million compliments on your really did a superb job! Thank you again for the outstanding job you did on everything related to our wedding!

Christy & Ben

Mark & Jess,

Ben and I cannot thank you both enough for capturing our wedding day. You were so easy to work with and always willing to answer all of my questions - even the bridesmaids' dresses one!! 🙂

Our wedding pictures, cards and album all came out beautifully and definitely exceeded our expectations - which were extremely high!!! You guys are the best that's for sure!!

Thank you!


Nicole & Ben


Thank you so much for being our photographer for our wedding! You truly did an amazing job at capturing all the special moments on our wedding day! Thank you also for photographing our engagement session and for the engagement gift. It is such a fun keepsake along with the other fun gifts you surprised us with! We absolutely love our album! It is perfect. Our family and friends have enjoyed looking at it as well. The pictures on the front of this card are from our honeymoon to Venice and Rome. We had such an amazing time!

Thanks you again for everything! We look forward to using Mark Romine Photography in the future!

Take Care,

Erik & Jenna

Mark and Katelyn are absolutely amazing! The pictures that they took at our wedding are beyond words. They are by far the most stunning pictures that I have ever seen. They are true professionals and worth every penny that we paid. They captured our wedding day perfectly!

Thank you!

Amie + Kyle

I first met Mark Romine while he was photographing my cousin's wedding. He was so professional and what I loved about him is that he knew all of the wedding party's names by the end of the evening. I then got engaged in February 2008. I knew that I wanted him to do my wedding as well. Throughout the year I was planning my wedding, Mark was very responsive and helpful to my wedding needs. The day of my wedding went so smoothly. Mark and his assistant Katelyn were such a pleasure to work with. The pictures of my wedding day could not have been more perfect! They captured the romance and elegance that I was going for. I have not seen a better photographer in the Chicagoland area that provides better customer service or quality of pictures that they provide. I knew that I wanted a photographer who would capture the essence of our special day, Mark Romine Photography does just this. I recommend everyone looking for a photographer to pursue Mark Romine.

Taryn & Zach

Dear Mark,

Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed working with you for the Egan/Funk wedding. I absolutely love all the images you captured. You are wonderfully talented and I look forward to working with you more in the future.

Mark & Jess ~

Thank you so much for your assistance over the past year. I have been nothing but impressed with your organizational & professional skills.

One word - fantastic!

We were reviewing photographers for our Chicago wedding in October 2010 and had the fortune to come across Mark and his work. We really liked his pictures and presentation and decided to go with him. We were blown away by the quality of his work, creativity and energy. You'll have a very happy wife if you go with Mark. She'll have pictures to treasure her entire life.


Dear Mark & Jess

We can't thank you enough for all that you did for us during our wedding. The pictures turned out fantastic! We love every one of them. You guys were so great to work with and always worked with our schedule which we really appreciated. It made things so much easier. Thank you so much for your excellent work. We really appreciated it!

Dear Mark:

How can I possibly describe how pleased we have been with the photography of Sarah & Randy’s wedding? You have amazed us from the very start with your attention to detail, your exquisite results and your incredible turn around times. And I would consider us to be discriminating customers. Not just anything would exceed our expectations the way you have. How do you do it? I will be bragging about you to friends for years to come and I hope that translates into multiple referrals. You are one of the best decisions we made for this oh-so-important day.

Thank You!

Chris (mother of the bride)

I cannot recommend Mark highly enough.

Photography is one area where you really get what you pay for, and I feel hiring a professional to do our photos was the best vendor decision we made.

He is so much more than just a photographer, he is a true creative professional. He was invaluable in helping me put together our wedding day timeline. Our photo guestbook made from the images in our engagement session was one of my favorite wedding details. It is a great keepsake with personal notes from our guests and amazing photos of us together.

It rained our entire wedding day, the ground was soggy and muddy, and the temperatures were too cold to be comfortable outside without a coat... this severely limited our photo opportunities. And yet, Mark was able to work so well with the interior spaces we had available that the photos didn't suffer one bit.

He always arrives with a second photographer. Katelyn, his assistant, was the second photographer for our wedding. Her work fits seamlessly next his and we ended up extra photos (and a lot of unique angles) that we never could have gotten if we'd only had one photographer.

I could go on and on about how amazing his work is, and how incredibly happy I am with our wedding, but I think I'll let the work speak for itself. Check out photos of our wedding here:

When everything's said and done, the wedding is over, and your marriage has begun... it is so incredible to be able to look at these beautiful photos and remember all the details of the day.

~Samantha and Rich


Dear Mark,

As a wedding planner managing myriad details on a wedding day it is not always possible to step back and see the bigger picture. I am especially grateful for your artistic eye and the way you capture the essence of the day. When looking at the photos or an album I can relive the day without the pressure associated with managing an event.

At Meghan and Alex's wedding you were once again the consummate professional. Everywhere at once without being obtrusive to the ceremony or reception. It was a pleasure working with you and I know the couple and their families were delighted with your work.

With Thanks,

Gwen Wilson, Nuptiae, The Wedding & Event Planners

Mark & Katelyn,

Thank you for capturing Jake & Krista’s wedding so that we can continue to relive it forever! The pictures are fantastic-better then we ever dreamed. Your blog message was very nice, it brought tears to my eyes. You were great to work with. Thanks so much. It was a wonderful...we have much to be thankful for.


Sue (mother of the bride)

Dear Mark: We want to thank you, sincerely, for all of the great work you did with our wedding photographs. The album looks great, we have received so many compliments on all of your photos.

Thank you so much for giving generously of your time and talent, we could not have wished for a better photographer to capture our special day!

We enjoyed working with you, and you now have two more fans of your work in Alabama!

Thanks, Mark!

Val & Jeff

Dear Mark,

How can I (we) possibly thank you enough for all of the amazing photos you took of our wedding. There’re the tangible remnants of our day & they’re beautiful. We are thrilled to have such lovely images of our perfect day frozen in time. You are a brilliant artist and we are thankful to have your works in our home.

~Julia and Brian

Mark and Katelyn were wonderful to work with. Mark was there to answer all of our questions throughout the planning process and help along the way. They put us so at ease for our big day and provided us with amazing photos. They captured every detail of our day and all the emotions that go with it. Our album is a unique piece of artwork that we will both treasure forever. There is no better team to work with!

Meg & Jeremy


I just wanted to express my thanks for putting together the slideshow of wedding photos. It was awesome! And it made both Chip and I tear up a bit. I love that feeling! Your photos make me realize that I wouldn’t have changed a single thing about the wedding, and that I wish I could do it all over again. The expressions you caught were amazing!

Jennifer & Chip

Hi Mark,

Thanks for checking in. As soon as my dad called to say that the album had arrived, we went to their place to pick it up. It is fantastic! We are so happy with it. Everyone that I've shown it to has been impressed with how beautiful the pictures and the presentation are. And we gave my parents their album and they love it, too. We'll be taking Ian's parents' album with us to NY to give to them at Christmas, and I'm sure they will also be thrilled. Thank you so much!

Thank you for everything that you've done during this whole process. It has been wonderful to work with you and we are so grateful that you helped make at least one part of the whole wedding thing easy and fun.

Colleen & Ian


The photos are AMAZING!!! What a wonderful day and you captured it all beautifully. I know that a lot of people are going to be ordering photos including myself. Joe’s mom is also going to be contacting you about photos that she wants to purchase. I am just so excited. Thank you so much!!!!

Jillian and Joe

Mark did an amazing job with everything from the engagement photos to our wedding photos. I not could be happier with how everything turned out. He was very flexible and made the whole process completely worry free. I would give him the highest recommendation possible. He gives you so much more than just a few photos to record the day.....his photos let you relive the day.

~Amie & Jeff

Mark, the pictures are breath taking. And the slideshow you sent Caitlin and Tim is perfect. You captured our thoughts.

It was truly a joy working with you. Your presence added to the day.

I have seen beautiful wedding pictures before. But beautiful pictures are even more beautiful when they are of your child. Your pictures show how Nancy and I know and love her. We are delighted to share them with everyone.

George (father of the bride)

Mark and Team,

Words cannot express how grateful we are that we had your team capture our special day! We could not be any happier with how all the pictures turned out. We now have our favorite, most loving day captured on film to enjoy for many wonderful years to come.

Thank you for capturing our love!

Emily + Steve

Mark is a top notch photographer and we were so excited to have him photograph our day. He did an amazing job capturing the more intimate moments of the evening and his creative eye is unmatched. Of all things on your wedding day the photos will last a lifetime and having Mark there to capture those moments was worth every penny.

Thank you Mark!


Dear Mark,

Thank you so much for being there on our special day. We were so happy with all the photos, they just take our breath away. We feel so honored that we had such a great photographer and assistant make our day memorable. Thank you for sharing our occasion and bringing the memories to life. We wish you best holiday season and a happy and safe new year!


Lisa and Joe

Mark & Jess~

Thank you so much for making our special day one we'll never forget. We absolutely LOVE our pictures :). You both were so easy to get along with. We are looking forward to seeing our album - it looked awesome online :).

Thanks again!
