Editing and delivery:
Max. One month delivery period for ALL photographs.
To keep the cost low, I will only edit a few of the photos and will provide you with all the original photos for your own use on a USB stick.
If you have chosen to book me, you have seen my work, you have seen my style, and that is exactly what you will be receiving as a result of the shoot.
Naturally there are factors outside of my control for example: weather, lighting conditions, camera shy guest’s however I will perform my job to the best of my ability to capture your memories on the day.

On occasions there may be limited space available for other persons and you are employing and paying for my expertise. I will always endeavour to capture your moments to the best of my ability, therefore please be mindful and discuss the ability for all persons to work in harmony for your sake.
