Providing photography as a service, we cannot ignore the facts that it is an art and like all arts, it is subjective. As Sara Blecher explains: “Art is incredibly subjective. What is great art to one person isn’t necessarily to another”. This is the reason why we encourage discussions and/or meetings prior the event. All personal requests (photos not to be missed, example of photos) if any, must all be communicated before the event.
According to Piet Mondrian, “the only problem in arts is to achieve a balance between subjective and objective”. However, our team is fully dedicated to meet your expectation to the best we can. If you have special demand concerning your photos, we encourage you to prepare for same in terms of venues, accessories & all related details, so your wedding photos can fulfill your expectations.
