To prepare the best for the day. This is some highlight you should communicate with the photographer.

  • Knowing each other beforehand. The best way is by sending some photos of your faces so he will recognize you easily.

  • Send the map to the photographer so he will know how to catch you with you and have a plan to hideaway.
