I look at every single photo taken on the day and they will be edited if it is required. Please get in touch if you require a specific style or effect in post production.

From receipt of your approval it can take up to 4 weeks for you to receive your album in normal times. Albums can take slightly longer leading up to the Christmas season.
How will I receive my album?
Albums are sent out directly to you from my supplier. If you live locally, sometimes I have the album sent directly to me and I deliver it to you, the client directly. You are more than welcome to collect it from me directly when I have received it. I keep you notified throughout the whole process. International deliveries will incur additional costs from standard.
