Retouched Bound Book Image Files

If you would like to own the original photographic files, we are one of the few photographers who will offer you the opportunity to have the RAW images from your wedding.
Most professional photographers have their cameras set to capture in RAW image format instead of jpeg format. With choosing RAW format, we use powerful computers with special software applications to make adjustments to the images instead of allowing our cameras to make complex processing decisions.
RAW image files have a .NEF or .CR2 filename extension and can only be viewed in special software created specifically for RAW files. RAW files do not have adjustments applied to them, and are thus known as having non-destructive file processing. They are not suitable for printing at amateur or professional color labs and cannot be posted on the Internet and viewed without further editing and conversion to a different file format.
With RAW files, we can change the color, exposure and many other settings, and because of their non-destructive processing, the original file is not negatively impacted. If those same changes were made to a jpeg original file, the overall image quality would suffer.
Once RAW files have been adjusted and calibrated, jpeg format files are processed from them. Those processed jpeg files are what we usually provide to clients. They represent our interpretation of the ideal image.
By purchasing RAW files, you’ll own the original image data. This will allow you to more easily manipulate your images both now and far into the future, especially as image processing software continues to improve. Since that data is highly malleable, you will never face the limitations inherent in adjusted jpeg files.
Add RAW original files to your coverage, for only the images included with your jpegs, $400
Add RAW original files to your coverage, for all the images including the discarded files, $750

SELECTION & ADJUSTMENT
Selected photographs include images that reflect our best quality of work and represent the most important moments and people from your wedding. Adjustments include adjusting the color, modifying the exposure, adjusting the contrast, and cropping the images. Rejected images may include misfires, the flash not going off, duplicate or near-duplicate photographs, unflattering images, closed-eye images, out-of-focus pictures, images that reflect negatively on individuals, or photographs that do not meet our minimum standard for quality.
Availability for specific dates is on a first come, first served basis with a retainer of one third due at signing. Payment can be via cash or check from the bride or groom. Credit cards and debit cards are not acceptable for booking weddings, because it violates the VISA® and MasterCard® terms of service.
