All the information provided is to help you get the most out of your images and make keepsakes to last through the generations.
It is important to download your digital files and then back them up. Per the contract that you signed at booking, I keep all files for three years. After that, I am no longer responsible for archiving any files from your wedding. I highly recommend backing them up in multiple locations (a minimum of the following 3):
1. on the cloud. I recommend Dropbox
2. on an external drive
3. as tangible prints
One of the most difficult things as an artist is handing over control of how the final product of your art will look. A lot of love goes into the entire wedding process – from our initial meeting to how the final images are edited – and using the right lab can make an enormous difference in the quality of the print. Every lab has a different way they produce color, contrast, and brightness and either make an image fine art or make an image poor quality.
Therefore, I highly recommend you use RICHARD PHOTO LAB. You do not need to create an account. Download their print app The images should not be color-corrected by Richard Photo Lab and I suggest printing on lustre or fine art paper. The aspect ratio of your prints are 4:3 (4.5×6, 9×12, etc will fit almost exact). Size options not in 4:3 ration will be cropped, but the app will let you adjust this prior to adding to your cart. Their fine art prints are a different quality than the ones I offer, which are only available to professionals.
Guidelines for protecting your prints:
1. Keep your print out of direct sunlight as this will shorten its life. Discuss using UV glass with your framer to help protect them.
2. Do not touch the surface of the print as this will transfer oils from your hands onto it. Hold them on their sides or rest them on a clean surface to admire before framing.
3. Heat and humidity can also shorten the life of your print. Try to keep them in a dry room at 70 degrees or less.
4. Consider matting your print before framing. It will protect the print and keep it from touching the glass where it can easily begin to stick over time.
5. Store any prints you do not frame in acid free containers and materials to avoid discoloration. Also, use vellum between each print to avoid surface scratches.
