A: That would be tedious to yourselves. I eliminate every shot that doesn’t meet my standards, i.e. shots that are out of focus, bad expressions, closed eyes and shots that are generally not flattering to the couple. I narrow down my selections to only the best photos from the day. My packages above explain how many is included in each package

Q: What if you have never photographed my Venue before?
A: If I have never been at a location before, I do my research online to see what is available to me. I also aim to get to the venue early to scout locations I’d like to use for the photo sessions. All venues are the same for with regards to finding locations for the shots I have in mind
