Total Photography LLC

Every event is special and spontaneous and will have its own unique style and atmosphere.  Some will follow a very traditional script; others will blaze their own trail.  Even the most structured and planned event will have fluid and unpredictable moments.  We’ll do our best to roll with the change, but some advance planning will go a long way toward successful photos.  We are at our best when we understand how and what you expect from us.

 

Below is a list of traditional shots captured at weddings.  We’ll use this list as an outline of what may or may not be important to you.  Once we generate a list of ‘must have’ shots we’ll create a plan to insure those shots are part of our delivered work.  This will also help both you and us plan our schedule.
