I will try my best to make every client satisfied with our quality of service.

2 We are experienced

We understad that wedding is not events that will happen again or get replayed, so during a wedding day, many of the most important moments only happen once – like the exchange of the rings, the first kiss and first dance. as a professional wedding photographer  and our wedding photographer team  having the  photography experience behind you to make sure that you will be able to show these moments to your grandkids. we knows those shots by heart (rather than having to look at a list) and ensure that all the important moments of the day are documented for you.

3 We have advanced lighting skills

Advanced lighting skills are critically important to good wedding photographers. That’s because many of the venues where couples get ready or hold their receptions are very dimly lit, often times to create a special atmosphere. We have the skills to shoot in even the darkest of light. Also, we have the skills to use “remote control” lighting where the light is coming off-axis from the camera, producing three-dimensional type photos.

4 We know how to organize Group Photos quickly

These are important photos for many couples since weddings are often the only time the entire family gets together in one location.( I learned from my wedding) It can be very hard to successfully organize and arrange a large group of people, Can you see everyone’s face? Are all the people there? And is the arrangement orderly and well constructed. We knows how to quickly put the groups together and put the smile on everyone’s face  so everyone can get to the reception.
