FAQ Photo Delivery

Do you keep a backup copy if I lose my photos?2019-11-03T14:36:55+11:00

A secure archive is kept for 3 months just in case. 

What happens if I lose my images after 3 months time?

After 3 months it depends on how much new data has been added to the archives so no definitive time after that. There’s a possibility we may still have a copy in our photo archives. But it depends on whether it’s just after a few months or years.

Computers are very reliable these days so hopefully you won’t have any technology mishaps.

Please get back in touch anytime down the track and we’re happy to have a look.
