- How long will it take to receive our products?
As our studio only photographs one wedding per day, we put great emphasis on timely delivery of products. Your online gallery from your wedding day is posted four weeks after your wedding. Digital files are typically delivered at this time too. All of our album designs are produced in-house making the whole process smooth and effortless. Once approved most albums are ready for delivery within 8 weeks. All of our hand finished print and wall art products are typically ready for delivery within two weeks.
- Do you edit all of our digital files?
All of your wedding day images are edited individually in studio. We take great care to make sure that each is properly color corrected and balanced and presenting beautifully! We do not use any form of automated process.
- How may photographs will we receive?
We do not limit what we photograph on your day, and our goal is always to provide greatest variety possible. The number of images will vary based on single or two photographer coverage and also the length and complexity of your day. Most two photographer weddings typically provide a minimum of 800 images, and often yield more!
- Do you offer an online gallery for our images?
Our studio owns and hosts an advanced online gallery system that is fabulous! It is very easy to navigate, and wonderful to view. Your gallery will be password protected, and all of your friends and family are most welcome to view your images here. All of the products that we offer are available here – everything from photographic prints to wall canvases to metallic prints and many other unique offerings! You can also use the gallery system to make your album image selections and send them over to us to begin your album design, making the process truly seamless.
