Will Your Wedding Photos Be Fully Edited Before You See Them?
Now this is a time management issue with all Professional Photographers. Is time management a skill in the Ontario Bridal Industry? It sure is with your local Toronto Wedding Photographers running back and forth at a frenzied pace from March to late October.
Yet having said that your Big Day – Wedding Photographer Toronto should at least able to provide post production images that have at least been cropped or framed with a minimum of color correction for your inspection within a Month to say the least.
How Many Weddings Does Your Toronto Wedding Photographer Shoot A Year?
Now this question should never be a ‘Quantity over Quality’ determination.
At Canadian Wedding Photography | Toronto we generally shoot upwards to 2 to 3 Weddings per Month during Wedding Season. We’ve long since adopted the Business model that we would not stretch ourselves to thin. Preferring instead to provide a quality Service where we can best focus our efforts on our Customer’s and not chasing the almighty dollar.
Do You Shoot Both Film And Digital?
Digital. Unfortunately with the demise of the Kodak Eastman Plant here in Toronto closing down years ago (Sniff…) the Toronto Wedding Industry is almost purely digital nowadays. As Technology continues to march on so does your local Wedding Photography Service. The learning curve in the Wedding Industry never seems to end so it’s always an onwards and upwards in our continued efforts to provide a quality service and end product for our Customers.
This is most certainly a trait that ever best Wedding Photographers Toronto will strive for.
