Photography Service sequence
Everything starts from idea. If the special moment of your life is getting close you may want to book a photo-shoot. Take a look at service list on https://momentstopper.com to see which option suits you the best.
You want to get your photos done for a good price. You tell me the date, time, location, number of people that I will have to photograph, type and duration of the event and I will tell you my price. If you need a recommendations regarding location or the best time of the day to do a photo-shoot there, I am at your service.

If you have an extra situation terms of the photo-shoot can be changed under agreement of both sides. Deposit can be returned in 100% if the photo-shoot cannot accomplished due to force major and there is no option to reschedule it in the way suitable for both sides. If photo-shoot is canceled for reasons other than force major the deposit is not refundable.
I will always try to make my clients happy, but to fulfill your vision at the best ability of mine I need some guidance. Let’s take a look at some examples: In a big family, there is someone for whom this day is special, so, that individual has to get the most of attention. If it is a family reunion maybe you care only about all family together photos and don’t care about individual portraits.
Get yourself ready for a photo-shoot. Think about clothes, shoes, sunscreen and water. Some of these are especially important for families with little kids. Think of where you are going. If you are going to the beach, think, if you are going into the water too or just hanging out on the sand. If you want an advice to take go into the water or not, ‘Yes’ is the answer. Getting in the water does not necessarily mean wearing a bathing suit. Regular clothe looks much more interesting. If you worry that you going to ruin your close, don’t bring fancy ones. No one will see price tags in the photos. Individuals and couples gets a lot of attention from the photographer, this is a reason why you should bring some accessories for beach photography. A wide hat, classic sun glasses, or a beach bag brings photographs to another level. Put comfortable shoes on especially if you are going for street photography in Old San Juan, looking for graffiti in Santurce or walking around the Castillo San Felipe del Morro.
Photographers use different techniques editing photographs and there is no common standards how to do it. Photographer decides how surroundings will look but there is also a need for client’s guidance. Skin softening and removal of skin defects is a default step of post processing in most of the cases. However, client is welcome to give guidance regarding the level of skins softening and other corrections.
Payment can be done right after photo-shoot or before I start post processing.
To offer my costumers the best price I try to eliminate extra spending, for this reason photographs are enta s a link on Google Drive. All the client have to do, is to download photos in 30 days. I save photos of my clients for some time and you are welcome to ask for backup if something happens and you lose your photos.
