Chromatica

They spend as much time as possible on the 'creative' elements of the day, which would typically be the bride 'getting ready', and the directed images of the bride and groom after the ceremony. Of course they make every effort to document the whole day thoroughly, but these two periods are the most creatively rewarding, giving them opportunities to play and create something interesting and memorable for you.
