Do you edit all of your photographs?
Yes we do. Every image that you receive had been hand-edited, one at a time. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and best images artfully retouched.
What is the “online gallery”?
The online gallery is a privet, password protected section on our website where all of your wedding photographs will be placed online for you and your family and friends to view. It is a secure card – which allows you (and your family and friends) to order prints and cards and select album prints online. All you have to do is provide the password to anyone who you want to be able to view the images.
Dark venue. How does you handle these situations?
We have shot in the darkest of dark chapels and reception halls so no need to worry! If the situation allows, we will set up additional lighting to ensure we get bright crisp pictures. Our professional gear has been carefully selected for the purpose of adapting to whatever lighting circumstance we may run into. Part of our job is to find out how to make lighting work on a regular basis.
When can we expect to see our photos from our wedding?
Digital image editing and the creation of DVD with final images take approximately 4 weeks. During wedding season (summer months) and other busy times completion time may vary.
Do you have Liability Insurance?
