Some info on  BuenaVista Photography below!

We are a partnership of three friends who each have a passion for photography.  We have joined our skills to be able to provide high quality photographic services with the needs of our customers in mind. Your satisfaction matters to us.

Quality photography in SL involves a much more than "focus, shot, and upload." We begin with high quality graphics equipment in order to capture high quality raw photos.  We use our experience in working with the SL environmental settings to get the proper lighting to take great raw photos.  And then, when necessary or desired, we can enhance the raw photos with special effects, text, and multiple pose images.  Our prices reflect the time and skill required to capture great raw photos and then  to make enhancements to the raw photos.  If you want something that is not in our basic price list, or if you have a special situation, please discuss it with us. – don’t be afraid to ask.

Please take time to wander around our studio and gallery, take a close look at the examples of our work. We believe you will see the quality of our work, and the care in our work to capture feelings and emotions. Although we do lots of photo shop work, you will notice that we tend to do a lot of "realistic" work.  We can meet your needs, you just need to help us know what it is that you want.

We have 100’s of  individual poses (both male and female) and our collection of couple and group poses is growing. We  offer lots of backgrounds from which you may chose or if you prefer, we’ll make the choice for you. And we can add special effect to meet your desires.  We are available for both "on location" shots as well as "studio" shots. We also offer a wide variety of "on location sites,"  beautiful sims that we have personally visited or sought out in SL for your options. And we are willing to meet you at a location of your choice – perhaps your home, or a favorite romantic hideaway. We will work with you and help you.

We look forward to being your choice for all of your photography needs!

REGULAR WEDDING PACKAGES:                 We believe we offer a "different" type of wedding package than traditional SL photographers.                We understand how important this day is to you, and we understand that there is no "do over".  We will, of course, capture all of those special moments for you, the "traditional" moments you expect. But, in addition,  we will also be there to take pictures at the wedding rehearsal, before the wedding as your guests arrive, before the wedding as the groom stands nervously with the groomsmen, before the wedding as the bride waits anxiously with the bridesmaids, during the wedding, and after the wedding at the reception.  We will be sure to take pictures of people in the wedding party and special friends who have attended the wedding and the reception.  If you are using a wedding planner, we will work with the wedding planner to be sure all special events and "Kodak moments" are captured.

We will customize our services to your individual needs.

Base package price includes:                    1 hour* rehearsal time                2 hours* pre-wedding, wedding and reception time (we normally bring two photographers)                "Proof" pictures (raw photos) of ALL pictures taken up to 100 pictures. If more than 100 pictures are taken, we will chose the best of the RAW photos.  If you wish, we will upload additional pictures at our cost,  L$10 per picture. (We take a LOT of pictures.) Pictures provided with full permissions in frame that may be rezzed and hung on the a wall of your home or apartment.

Final "Wedding Album".  The final album will include pictures of your choice. Some of the pictures in the "Wedding Album" will be photo shopped and enhanced based on the package you select.  Enhancement may include names, special effects, backgrounds, etc.  We will work with you to be sure you get the Wedding Album of your dreams, and a reminder of memories you cherish.

Large wedding parties take more time to photograph – more people to manage.  Please adjust your time expectations accordingly.                                            Additional Wedding Package Considerations:                    * Cost for enhanced photos beyond the base package price is at the rate of L$200 per photo.                * Arrangements may be made for studio pictures of the bride, groom,  bride and groom, or wedding party at discounted prices from our individual, couples, and group rates.                *A nonrefundable 50% deposit is needed for all weddings at the time of booking the wedding.  And additional 25% is due the day the wedding, and the remaining 25% is due when the photos are delivered.                 *Please note that large wedding packages take more time for enhanced pictures.                              SMALL WEDDING PACKAGE:                     L$1500 per/hr     Package – Untouched (Raw) Photos                     1  photographer.
