We usually deliver or mail the disc with the images within four to six weeks of the wedding. Sometimes we can get it to you sooner - it all depends on how busy we are.

Album preparation and production takes about 8 to 12 weeks.

How do I make prints from the discs you provide?
We recommend making prints at a professional photo lab that regularly makes prints of wedding photos. Prints may also be made at discount photo labs, but these may not be of good quality. We recomend ordering canvas prints or larger size prints from us or a professional photo lab to ensure high quality.

Yes, we can provide a list of reputable local wedding vendors to our clients.
What is your preferred style of photography?
Based on client's wishes, we provide a mix of styles including documentary or photojournalism, editorial, and posed photographs. We find beauty in simple, fresh photographs that tell a story, capture the emotion of the moment or the personality of the subject(s).
How far in advance should I reserve a photographer?
