Can I have a repeat photo shoot?

Yes, you are welcome to engage with a Trusted Photographer and coordinate a repeat shoot as often as you’d like, but it is up to the individual Trusted Photographer to decide the cost.

Remember that you can always upload your own up-to-date photographs through Google Places as well.
