What if the weather is bad on the day of our outdoor shoot?

We monitor the weather closely and will be in touch with you if there are concerns. We can reschedule or find an indoor location as a backup plan.

Do you offer digital files of the photos?

Yes, we provide high-resolution digital files of the edited photos, allowing you to print and share as you wish.
