New member here, just looking for some feedback from Brides to be regarding what they are looking for as a final product from their photographer. Price is not an issue here, just simply what end product(s) do you want?

 

Answers could be something like:

 

- Just give me an unedited DVD with all of the photos, and I'll print them at Walgreens myself

 

- I'd love to have one of those really cool, custom designed coffee table books

 

- I want a huge 60" x 30" canvas print to hang on my wall over the couch

 

- Just an old fashioned slip-in style album and 100 4x6 prints to go inside

 

You get the idea. What do you want to remember your wedding day?

 

Thanks!

This is easy for me. I want my images on a DVD & that is it. I'm a DIYer so I want to make my own coffee table book, slideshows, & do all sorts of fun stuff with my pictures. I love photo projects.

 

I plan on printing my favorite images & the ones I will frame on Mpix to get the pro quality. I'll be filling my album from snapfish because I have 1000 penny prints. Then i'm designing coffee table books for us, our parents & grandparents. I'll be ordering at least 6 books. So digital negatives were a must. I also make calendars each year for all of our family so I want to include the wedding pictures there.

Definitely some coffee table books. I think if I just had prints, I'd never get around to making up any kind of album or book.

Just a DVD so I can do it all myself. Maybe like 3 8x10s of a professional quality for myself and the two sets of parents to print (or just one for me is really enough!) For everything else, I am happy with costco quality. To me it's not worth the high price of professionally printed photos.

I would want a DVD of all my photos in high res and edited. I would also want a digital coffee table album. I print all my photos and get my canvas prints on my own.

hi-res dvd of edited images, a slideshow set to music, flush-mount coffee table books, all hard-copy proofs, engagment or TTD session.

 

as far as the DVD, i dont necessarily want to do ALL the work myself, BUT, i do want two things-- 1)the option to do what i want with the images, and 2) rights to all pictures of ME that I paid for :) might be your work of art, but it's my face, haha wink.gif

We just got our proofs in a slip-in type book and I liked that. We also got a DVD with the prints-like that.

What I really liked, and didn't expect, was she framed one of our photos for us in sweet little 4x6 frame. I like that I could just leave it on the coffee table and having it all set was a very nice treat!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
