A beautiful Fall Wedding

October 18th was a beautiful day for a wedding. Clint and Katie got married at Holy Trinity Church in Lenexa. After the wedding we went to Antioch Park where the trees were stunning. The reception was at the Overland Park Marriott. Clint and Katie were wonderful to work with, and everything about thier day was fabulous. Here are a few images from the day. I have included some that have post process enhancements done to them. See something you like? We can do this for your wedding. Call me at 816-419-4321 and we can set up an appointment. Enjoy the images.

October 11th Wedding

Saturday was a beautiful day in Pittsburg, Kansas for Lisa and Brian’s wedding. It was a beautiful church to photograph in, and everyone seemed to really enjoy each other and the day’s festivities. I was working with a new set of portable studio lights for the formals, and was quite impressed with the quality of the images. Here are a few images from the wedding and reception. Enjoy.

Do I get a CD with my pictures?

More and more these days that is the question that photographers hear when they talk to a bride and groom about their wedding. Everyone wants a CD so they can print their own pictures and save some money. What I want to do today is explain what the difference is between printing rights and copyrights.

With my packages I offer a CD with printable images for an extra fee. The CD comes with a print release, which allows you to go anywhere you want to have prints made. The reason we sell this CD is because of the time involved in getting it ready. Images you see as proofs have not been completed. They are usually color balanced, but no retouching has been done. To have 200 images ready for printing takes 5 to 8 hours of work behind the computer. That is time that I need to be paid for, because it is not figured into the time at your wedding.

Printing rights means you can get prints done where you want, but you can’t use the images for other purposes (Christmas cards, website, etc) without permission of the copyright owner (me). Most photographers will not give up copyright, because then we would not legally be able to use any images from you event for our advertising and websites. There is a fine line there, but it is one that I will not cross. So, all of my packages have CD’s available for a fee with printing rights.

Stay tuned for more.
