Your naming convention is up to you. However, we prefer to receive files in one folder, ideally with the files numbered sequentially with the proper time stamps. This allows us to work with the images in chronological order (for better consistency while editing) and easily identify missing images or other file issues.
Please DO NOT rename the files on your side until we finish the work and you receive the xmps/catalog. If you change the image file names prior to receiving metadata from Lavalu, then the metadata will not match up and you will need to download the original files you sent us from the server.
Remember to place your image files in a well named folder (i.e. "Smith & Jones Wedding") and to use that same folder name as your "Order Name" when filling out an order form.
