“Jason and Ashley of Have Heart Photography are warm and outgoing people [who] love what they do! Being in front of the camera was not something Adam and I were used to but they kept things light and helped us relax. We had a lot of fun..I have two favourite parts: One the day of, I loved the one-on-one sessions with Adam after the ceremony. We got to have some fun and be out of the spotlight for just a moment. The other favourite part was getting to relive the wedding day from start to finish when we went through the complete album…” – Amy
