I don't want my photos shown in public, will you respect such privacy request?
Foremost, this is a very important notion to point out prior to booking, not afterwards. The standard contract stipulates our rights to publish your photos, so don't accept without discussing it with us, please.
There are three main cases when we will oblige to such privacy request unconditionally:
- maternity with high levels of exposure
- sessions with young children
If you do not fall in such category, we can still work it out with a certain understanding. We are artists, we need our work to be widely seen not only for the continued self-esteem boost but also to attract new clients.
There is another, unspoken truth. When creating, we try harder knowing that hundreds of people might see the results... It would be insincere of any creative to claim otherwise. Every new post leads to something.
Depriving us of this opportunity has a direct effect on bookings so we can certainly respect your privacy request but may need to to charge a higher fee for the loss of unrealized profit.

What is the best way to get in touch with you? Can I text you?
There are plenty of ways to initially get in touch with us—our contact form, online chat, calling, emailing, texting, through Facebook (both personal and business page), Instagram, LinkedIn, WhatsApp, Google, and a bunch more. However, we'll lose our ...
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 ...
