Could you let us know if another couple is asking for our wedding date while we are still thinking?
We are very reluctant to do it as we know some businesses use a crafty technique of imaginary "other clients" and we do not want to be perceived as such. We will work independently with both couples knowing that whoever is ready to work with us will act sooner.

I don't want my photos shown in public, will you respect such privacy request?

I work during the day and can only call in the evening, can we talk then?
We, too! :) Back in the day, we didn't value family a lot... We still clock in 72+ hours per week so evenings became important in our personal lives. And, we may be too tired for you after a 12-hour work day. :) We loooove to talk to clients during ...
