Kind of Bummed About Wedding DVD
Posted 20 June 2007 - 02:32 PM
Ok, first I have to say I LOVED my photographer, she's awesome as hell and I don't have any other complaints (cause if I did, I'd probably be livid over this issue).
So my package included a DVD slide show. She recently sent me a package to pick out what pictures to include on the print ready cd and for the pro wedding album. I thought at this time, I'd also be telling her my music choices for the DVD. I've really been looking forward to this, because for my wedding I went the pretty traditional route and am normally, not the most traditional person. So the one little aspect of the wedding that we were going to have personalized to our interests was the music that went with the DVD (which were going to be a couple of punk songs).
So imagine how bummed I was when I opened the package and saw the DVD. As beautifully as it was packaged my heart sank because it became apparent she picked out the music herself. I played the DVD and the music isn't horrible... but it's totally not our type of music. Actually, I don't even know what the songs are or who sings them.
DVD's are priced on her a la carte rates as $500. I don't know what to do. I mean, I'd kind of feel like a jerk if I said, "uh, thanks for the dvd. I know it's normally $500 a la carte for the DVD, but can you make me another one with the music we want?"
I mean, I guess I could make my own slide show in windows media... or download a program to make it. But the pro one is so pretty (in terms of the actual disc and what's printed on it), that I don't think it'd even compare.
Should I say something or just let it go? I hate to be a pain.

What I don't know, though, is if they are allowed to sell something (even though she included this in your package, the law still looks at it as if she is making money off of her total service offering) with music that photographers haven't purchased the rights to. I doubt they are, but I don't know how many photographers pay attention to that.
If that's the issue and that's why she selected the music she did, just consult with her on your options. Maybe she can give you a slideshow without music and let you know what programs you could use to add the music (the easiest way to do it, though, is using her same program, but you may have more options than you're aware of).

I have made DVD slide shows for my sisters wedding and I am doing one for our guest to watch while they have drinks and wait for us to get to the reception. If she won't re-do it for you I would be happy to do it. The software is great and it is professional.
