Every effort will be made to accommodate specific picture requests, however no specific poses or photographs are guaranteed and the photographer shall not be liable for omissions of this type. I reserve the right to edit my work. 

  3. In order to eliminate confusion during formal, posed photographs, anyone else wishing to take photographs at this time must first consult Nick Kessler, or his representative(s), and abide by his judgment. It is the responsibility of the family and bridal party to enforce this rigidity.
