Ask your prospective photographers if they carry out any form of image manipulation and ideally ask to see a ‘before’ and ‘after’ shot so you can check out their handy-work for yourself.
The Presentation Package
Un-modified images taken on digital cameras will undoubtedly have a much quicker turnaround than their traditional counterparts, but unless your honeymoon only lasts a couple of days and you are desperate to see those snaps, then this is not that important. What is of much more importance is how the images are presented. Naturally the photographs will be presented in some form of album, and on the whole the style and layout of the album is much the same for digital as it is for conventional images.
Where digital has the upper-hand (except on those conventional photographers who are willing to scan in the photographs) is on other methods of presentation. It is not uncommon these days to receive your photos on a CD or DVD for viewing on a PC or through your television, whilst some photographers are even willing to put the shots on-line for friends and relatives around the world to view via a password protected site. In cases such as this, they may even be able to order their own prints online saving you the hassle in the process!
In the majority of cases the photographer retains copyright on the images and as such will only offer lower resolution files for access via the CD, DVD or PC. It is wise to check this out before getting all excited thinking how you can save money on any reprints by simply taking the files down to your local film processing lab!
