HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR IMAGES ON FILE: Any Images not purchased along with a copyright release from the photographer are only stored for a short period of time.

Portrait Images are stored for two years from the date of the session. That is any portrait session including engagement sessions that were part of the wedding package.

Wedding Images are stored for 3 years from the date of the wedding. After Three years we are not responsible for storing your images. If your images are available.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Any edits made to images after your image DVD is shipped would obviously not be done on the image DVD you have already received.  But if you want any of the revised edited images you can purchase each edited image later as a digital download at the current studio price for digital downloads. Or pay $75 for a updated DVD with all the edits made after your image DVD was shipped.

Replacement or duplicate copies of your image DVD are priced at $75ea. This covers our time retrieving the images and burning and shipping a new DVD and copyright release.


Image Retouching: With every wedding package of $2900.00 or more every image that we present to you after your wedding or portrait session will have had some kind of image enhancement done to it before it was released to you. This is one reason why it takes 2 -4 weeks after some events for us to get your images ready for your viewing. All images include retouching of minor hair and eye corrections, facial blemishes if any are fixed, shine on skin is reduced or eliminated and other minor imperfections are fixed. All images are color corrected for best possible printing of your images. We do offer additional retouching services beyond those already mentioned such as adding or removing people from an image, adding or removing things in a background of an image like an unwanted auto or people. We can make the grass greener and the sky more blue but these things all require additional work beyond what is included in the price of the package. This kind of additional retouching services start a $65/image. We will be happy to provide you with a written quote on a special retouching you may require. Contact your photographer for a price quote.
