    Of coz I remember la. They are a very nice couple. (Julie’s home is really far away from mine and I had to get up at 5.30!!)
    I also remember how shock I was when seeing you taking photos in such a special angle. I was wondering what you were shooting behind the church, Why you had to lie on the floor, why you asked me to switch off all the light….my mind was full of doubts. And now, haha, after half yr’s training, i know why.  
    Thank you Simon, you are such a good boss, a good teacher and a good friend.

    Big congrats!! I think your work is so valuable not just because it won some awards, it is because the true effort you devoted in each session & the understanding towards all couples.  Not everyone can put their HEART so into their work!!  Hope you would continue to love your job and influence other people with your happiness!!
