All photos ready but … do I ask for what I think is missing?

I think it’s just whatever you prefer, but I don’t think you should ask for both. If you get the disc, you can print as many as you want on your own dime. If you get the prints, then you’ll have to pay him if you ever want to get more prints.

Getting the disc with all of the images is definitely not included on your original package and, IMO, is a reasonable replacement, monetarily, for the prints in your package.

Sounds like a pretty standard package/price to me…its usually one or the other and if you get both, its going to get pricey.

Our photography package is costing us $2700 and all we are getting is:
-engagement session
-photo guest book of the engagement photos
-8 hours of wedding day photography
-and a certain number of photos of our choosing on a disc.

If we want to add actual prints to the package it will cost us $100-$2000 depending on what package of prints we get.

IMO you should ask for the disc not the prints and go get prints done somewhere else.

If he is providing professional grade prints they will be much higher. The prints that you can order online or at Costco will definitely be a lower quality which is why the pricing is very different. As you have already received the two large prints I believe the better option is asking for the disc as long as it comes with print release. I would ask if he is still going to provide the DVD slideshow as well.

I agree, get the disc, but make sure you get a signed print release with it!

@MsDontRushME:  This is kinda weird… I’m not sure why he wouldn’t have avoided this whole situation and just sent you the prints that were included in the package you agreed upon. Offering you a choice of them or the Disc feels to me like at the last minute he got lazy and offering you the DVD was an easier option than fulfilling your existing contract and having to run off all those prints.

As a photographer, that’s the most glaringly obvious reason to me, but yeah, the disc might be a better choice anyway, so I’d probably go with that… this whole chocie situation just doesn’t make him look professional IMO.
