    Can anyone please help me in understanding the picture process!

    I looked at the price list but was a little confused. Here are my main questions;

    Do you automatically get all of photos on CD free but just with the watermark or do you have to pay for them regardless if they have a watermark or not?

    If you take the CD home and decide to get pictures later do you get charged shipping and handling in addition to the base price of the print?

    Lastly any advice on how long to have him for? My cousin who is planning on attending just graduated with a photo journalism degree, but I am a little worried about how good she is and what the pictures might look like to rely on her for all of the pics.

    Any advice on any of these things would be great!!!

      Hi,

      You have to contact Michael the photographer at ROR. He will send you a few documents to go over and prices. When you take the CD home and if you decide to order more prints , yes you have to pay for the shipping and handling, it's not included.

      You get a certain amount of prints and photos on CD. I know I have the Royal Wedding Package and it comes with a few but I did get a larger package with more prints and additional time with Michael.

      In addition to Michael, I purchased disposable cameras to be placed on the tables for the reception just in case people want to catch those candid moments! You know those are always the best!

      Hope this helps and good luck!!

        Thanks that helps. Do you remember by any chance how much the shipping and handling was?

          It looks like on his price sheet it's $70 to US/Canada. That's just the prices I obtained from his website though, but it says they're valid as of Jan 1, 2009.

            wow that really seems expensive for shipping especially for something that doesn't weigh very much. It sounds like it might be the best option just to buy them their.

              We were just there last month. We are waiting to get some of the other pictures that we ordered. Michael is sending them to us by email. This could be an option for you. We are not having him print them. We decided that we could do that here and that there would be less of a chance for something to go wrong. We are also planning on getting more pictures from him and I think that we can have him send them through email too. As long as you are not having him print them, there is really no reason to have him ship anything. I hope this helps! Good Luck!

                Can anyone please help me in understanding the picture process! sure!

                I looked at the price list but was a little confused. Here are my main questions;

                Do you automatically get all of photos on CD free but just with the watermark or do you have to pay for them regardless if they have a watermark or not? - you get the photos with the watermark for no charge. it's included when you pay for your package with him.

                If you take the CD home and decide to get pictures later do you get charged shipping and handling in addition to the base price of the print? - yes!- we got out of it cause they messed up with our wedding but yeah, it's quite a heafty charge I think.

                Lastly any advice on how long to have him for? My cousin who is planning on attending just graduated with a photo journalism degree, but I am a little worried about how good she is and what the pictures might look like to rely on her for all of the pics. - totally know what you mean. I had him for 3 hours and it was just enough. If I were to do it again I'd have him for longer (like 4 hours) but if you have your cousin there you shouldn't need him for very long....i'd say get him for after the ceremony cause we found that our guests took great shots of the ceremony. the shots that we like from our photog are the ones taken after the ceremony.
                hope that helpls!
