NOTES

dear Justin & Beth,

The moment I met Justin at the Greensboro wedding show, I immediately knew he and Beth would absolutely be the best fit for my now wife and me. Their inspired personalities and their energy make for a great and creative eye. They have the innate perspective real photographers should have. It’s a talent they are just born with.

Beth and Justin have blown us away with their results, and also with the way they supported us through our wedding day when some things went awry. My jacket got spilled on, my wife’s wedding dress got spilled on, etc… They made a point to calm us and to help with the making photographs right. I have a lot to thank them for, giving me tape from our videographer that they put on me to cover up that mess. They are the kindest people we know, and they have made us so happy.

Thank you to the Nixons for taking us on a fabulous journey from our engagement photos to the bridal shoot and to the wedding day, making the photographs something we never needed to worry about. It made for a stress-free set of sessions and refreshing days that invigorated us. Thanks to them, our photo sessions were fun, and that made it easier for us to have natural smiles and genuine pictures with true expressions. They really captured our joy with one another in moments we relive each time in viewing them. They take me back to the small things that made the days special.

They captured the true essence
of our spirits.
Thank you.

A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE
I cannot express how wonderful our experiences with Justin and Beth have been.
I am not comfortable in front of a camera, especially not in front of a camera and some strangers, and I was very nervous about being photographed for our wedding. I knew how important it was to find a great photographer to capture the moments of our special day and that I would just have to get over the anxiety I had when it came to being the center of attention.
I am not exaggerating when I say that I immediately felt comfortable with Justin and Beth. The day that we met them, I felt such peace and any anxiety I had about being photographed melted away. They made me feel so comfortable and they are such a joy to be around. Throughout the year of planning, I was lucky to meet with them several times and have the very important engagement shoot that would provide me with confidence in myself and how I came across in photos. It turns out that an amazing photographer really DOES make you look amazing in photos- you just have to trust them! Trust came easily with Justin and Beth. They work so well together and they’re just so fun to be around; they make you laugh constantly and they make sure you’re having a fun time the whole time!
The engagement shoot is so important and I am so glad that they encourage you to do it. They see the importance of getting to know their clients. During that shoot, you can let go and you can all get to know each other. Justin and Beth quickly become your friends and you fall in love with them during that session. That makes it all so much more fun and smooth for the big day!
The wedding day was amazing. Justin and Beth went above and beyond, and I mean it. Justin had to help me put on my dress because I had so many buttons that my mom and sister couldn’t conquer alone. Beth taught us how to cut our wedding cake and how to get it onto a plate without dropping it everywhere so we would look semi-prepared for that moment. They both helped to keep my bride brain stress-free and kept me laughing all day. There were many moments where Justin would just be quiet for a second because his talented and creative brain was coming up with an amazing idea! He’d often preface with, “I know this seems weird, but trust me”. TRUST HIM! You will have the best memories captured in the most creative and perfect ways. You will look, and feel, phenomenal and The Nixons will do an absolutely amazing job of capturing your special moments. I cannot express my gratitude for their support, for being my vendors, but also one of my greatest planning resources, and for the love and dedication that they bring to each shoot. You will see pure talent, joy, and love in all of their photos.

SO GRATEFUL
The Nixons were more than just photographers, they were our greatest companions throughout the entire day…from start to finish. From bustling my dress to making sure we ate dinner, they were there for every second. It’s hard to believe they spent so much of their time and energy making sure we enjoyed ourselves and were still able to capture every moment so beautifully.

Not only do they love love, but they also know that wedding days can be full of mishaps, and sometimes you just need to adapt. When our best man was significantly late because he failed to pick up his tuxedo until 30 minutes prior to pictures, and then realized it was at a location 4 hours away, the Nixons quickly adjusted our timeline and kept this information behind the scenes until all was settled.

They also have a way of knowing just what you need. Despite the mishap, we were ahead of schedule prior to the ceremony. Instead of taking in more formal pictures, Beth suggested we take some down time to relax with our wedding party and family. I didn’t realize it, but I needed this downtime, emotionally and mentally, more than I could ever imagined (and of course, some pretty special, and candid pictures were taken during this time with the people that mean the most to us).

We could not be more grateful that the Nixons were a part of our special day! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
