The “First look” is a chance for you to see each other, right before the ceremony, and before anyone else! It is a very intimate moment that you can share and document, and it is a great opportunity for pictures.
We normally start 1 hour before the ceremony. However, if you are booking photo and video, it is advised for the coverage to start at least an hour and a half before the ceremony, to allow plenty of time for photo and video.
For all coverages of above 5 hours, we do suggest that you discuss meal arrangements for the photo & video team with your wedding planner or coordinator. Many resorts have employee meal options you can look into.
We are flexible with such cases, and, as long as we have availability, we’ll reschedule your booked photo & video coverage package for the new date. If you suspect that weather might cause your ceremony to be rescheduled, please look into the alternative date ASAP and let us know so that we can plan ahead. In the off chance that we don’t have availability for your new date, we’ll give you a full refund for your booked package.
In the off chance that you choose to cancel a reservation 60 days before the wedding or more, we’ll refund the full amount of the retainer, minus any bank transfer fees or paypal expenses. If you cancel your package booking or your wedding event less than 60 days before the shoot date, your retainer will be non-refundable.
