- Shareable online gallery posting of your event, depending on amount of coverage/images and amount of editing required (typically 1 - 2 weeks for every hour of coverage purchased); delivery of images on a custom USB flash drive within two weeks of gallery posting.
- A minimum of 8 hours of coverage is required in order to include 'getting ready' bridal images that are not staged. If purchasing less than 8 hours coverage, the bride must be wearing her dress and ready to be photographed at the set arrival time of the photographer.
