The raw files are permanently deleted from our servers 30 days after the shoot.
  • What is your prefered style of photography?
    We prefer candid pictures in weddings and engagement sessions as we feel its important to capture real emotions rather than forced smiles. We usually instruct our couples to pretend the photographer is not present around them and the couples are encouraged to talk about fun topics and share jokes so that genuine emotions can be captured. Our pictures are vibrant and full of color. We color grade the pictures to make them more lively and attractive. Let your photographer know if you prefer more natural colors.
