Where would you like your pictures to live? I’m fully aware that this question sounds a bit odd, but humor me for a minute.
Where do you imagine your images existing?
One of the most common questions people ask me is whether they will receive the digital images with their wedding or session. But let me turn the tables and ask you, what do you intend to do with them?
Move them from computer to computer, from hard drive to hard drive?
Yes, some people do make their own 5x7 and “large” 8x10 prints (that’s a whole other blog post). And yes, I’ve seen the Christmas cards.
But the majority of people put it off doing anything more with their pictures. There’s so many to choose from they can’t decide what pictures to print larger or how to display them. They want to make a book but they “haven’t had time.”
These are all reasons we believe in a full-service approach to our photography services. If you are going to put the time and money into hiring a professional photographer, part of that process is creating a way for you to enjoy those pictures over time. Because eventually, your digital images will just be digital files taking up room on your hard drive instead of your walls, bookshelves, nightstands, coffee tables and desks.
