Can you quote any pricing over the phone?

Can I e-mail a picture of my gown for pricing of the alterations?
I am willing to perform a price based upon a picture of your gown if you e-mail at our address of: f-c-c-i@sbcglobal.net. You can e-mail us a photo of the bride in the dress, and advice us of the alterations needed, type of fabric and date of wedding. We can provide estimates only on submissions thru email.
