Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you deliver every image you shoot?
A: No, we do not. We eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. For example, because we shoot with low apertures, sometimes we take a few extra shots to make sure we have the perfect focus.
Q: Do I get to see all photographs taken?
A: We spend several hours going over photos. Some are duplicates, some blurred, some distorted. Not all photographs turn out. Fast movement inside, lighting and many other factors go into how I pull photographs for first previews. No, I don't show all photographs for that reason.
Q: What photos do I receive?
A: You get all of the first previews and edits. Edits are based upon the package you choose. Edits include 3 version of each edit i.e. natural color, black and white and photographer's choice.
