When and how do I receive my wedding images?
Your images will be available for online viewing within 30 days of your event. I will release the Printable Digital Proofs from your Wedding and other pre-wedding events (ie Rehearsal Dinner Coverage, Engagement Session) to you after the wedding upon the expiration of your dedicated 90 day online gallery. The images that are released to you will be printable at the size that your selected package states.
Why do you limit the size in which we receive our images?
Simply put, quality control. Upon the receipt of your Printable Digital Proofs, you have the right and ability to print out your photos at the lab of your choosing. However, consumer labs (Costco, Walmart, Shutterfly, Walgreens, CVS and etc) are not professional labs and I cannot be responsible for the results that come from these types of print services. Those types of labs can do a decent job of printing up to certain sizes, but beyond say an 8X10 or 11X14, the print quality can be compromised. I’ve done numerous tests and it just doesn’t stack up to the quality that my clients deserve. I highly recommend getting your enlargements from my partnered lab via your online gallery. I use a professionally dedicated lab and their print results are fabulous! They use nothing but the highest quality archival paper thats rated to last well over 100 years and the color rendition will surpass any consumer lab.
Can I get some images from you to post to Facebook and other social media outlets?
Of course! Just let me know which ones you’d like to get and I’ll get them to you ASAP. These files will have a small copyright watermark on them for your protection and mine, but it will not detract from your beautiful images. When you receive your final images on disc, you’ll be receiving two sets of files: Personal and Shareable.
Personal files are what they mean, Personal. Those files are for you and no one else. These are also your Printable Digital Proofs that you can take to your lab to have printed.
Shareable files are also as the name implies. These files are watermark protected and these are the files that you can share via social media, email and other sharing sources. They are watermarked for your protection and my studio’s copyright protection.
