Is your Photographer’s Assistant/Aid a second shooter/photographer?
The individual’s title is “lighting assistant.” They assist the photographer in achieving the desired lighting and know how to handle the equipment.

This way, we aim to make you feel completely satisfied with the results of our photography services.
Who designs our wedding day schedule? Is it me?
Slow down! You have enough to worry about. We actually require that we chat with you over the phone prior to the wedding to design your schedule.

When can I expect my photography team to arrive?
So the photography team is gonna show up fashionably early, like 30-60 minutes before the scheduled start time. We can’t pinpoint the exact moment they’ll arrive because we work around your ceremony schedule. But hey, if you’re curious, the team usually starts snapping pics about 3 or 4 hours before the big moment.
Do you have a backup photography team?
If a rare case arises, we have access to a backup photography team. In the past, a backup was utilize once when our owner unexpectedly gave birth two days prior to a captivating wedding celebration. Many couples are concerned with the reliability of vendors, and we encourage you to ask this question of all potential wedding vendors you meet. Rest assured that we take the responsibility of capturing your special day very seriously and have taken all necessary precautions to ensure the availability and readiness of our primary and backup photography teams.
How long does it take to receive our precious memories?
We prioritize returning your photographs to you in a timely manner. We understand the eagerness to see your captivating photographs. Rushing the quality of your photographs is unprofessional of us. Generally, we aim to have them back to you in no more than 12 weeks. If possible, we can have them ready in as early as 8 weeks. However, this may vary depending on the time of year and the quantity of moments captured.
Note: Fall and winter weddings are in our busiest seasons. Holiday may also effect the delivery date.
Note: You won’t receive your printed keepsakes immediately, since we will have to finish the editing process first, and you will have to pick them.

However, we’re happy to make things as easy as possible for you by setting up a Zoom or Skype meeting. After that, everything will proceed normally until your wedding day.
