Nick Janzen Photography has been specializing in wedding photography since 2010 and is an award winning photographer in wedding photo journalism and wedding portraiture. An average of over 500 photos are taken per hour of service which is an industry leading work ethic. This method ensures that the important moments of your day won’t be missed and you’ll be able to relax on your wedding day knowing every thing is being captured properly. There is always something to photograph to help you remember your day. During the days of editing, all of the duplicates and bad photos are taken out so that you’re only left with the best photos of your day.
On average, newlyweds are receiving approximately 3000 original touched up photos for their full 12 hour day weddings. Nick also chooses his favourites and artistically edits them. After the couple receives their photos, they will have the chance to choose their favourite photos for any artistic edits as well. These are dramatic edits that sometimes can take up to 8 hours to edit and are usually thought of before even taking a photo. This process is done to ensure the original photos are not touched and you can see how an idea comes to life. All photos are given on a USB of your choice, which usually takes between 4-6 weeks to receive. Photos are all full size, high resolution and will have no company logos or watermarks on them. All customers have full rights to print their photos any where they want and have the rights to share their photos online as well.
