CDOM :: Catholic Diocese of Memphis in Tennessee
I showed your picture to the Bishop (MOST Reverend J. Terry Steib, S.V.D.) and he was happy to see them. I asked him if he made the shot or missed. He got a good laugh out of my remark. The Bishop certainly appreciates your kindness.
You have taken such a thorough set of shots that everybody is represented from the parishes present that evening. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your generosity and help.
Some of your perspectives are from angles I don't have on file and can be useful on other days and occasions. The photos from the Confirmation cover everything and I will still have to pare down the list, but would like to have access to choose later as to how the page in the newspaper fills in. Above all, please forgive me for asking for so many photos and thank you!
Your photos have given us both a hard, but enjoyable task. :-)

IndiaFest 2013: India Association of Memphis
These pictures and video are awesome. I am extremely happy to work with you. The pictures are like watching the slow motion video. They are extremely good and colorful. Thanks a lot for covering the post event also. I know the pain in carrying the heavy cameras (D4 & D800E with 70-200MM). Take some rest.
Great Pictures. You have done such awesome job that "thank you very much' seems so small.
