Soooo we had our E-Shoot on Saturday..the weather was amazing! Actually…where I live (like 300ft above sea level) it was 75 degrees….. and where the pictures were, (2,200 ft above sea level) it was 55..
Sooo I was a LITTLE cold, but the scenery and everything were perfect! I’m so excited to see how everything turned out!
Our session was from 3-5:30..
How many pictures and how long was your shoot?

2 hours shooting, 400 photos taken, 20 get edited and will belong to us.

@sienna76: when you say 20 belong to you, do the others have no copyright? is that what you mean? or you don’t get the others, only 20?

@BellaDee: Our shoot was about 2 hours and I believe we got approximately 75ish?

@BellaDee: I can see all 400 of them online (unedited) and I can download them to my computer in full res (she uses SmugMug).
I do know I own the copyrights to the 20 that will be edited. They will arrive on a disc.
I think I own the copyrights to the others, but really out of 400, there’s only 20-30 that I really like anyway. Her contract does not go into that kind of detail.
I could buy a disc that has all 400 – edited and unedited. Not sure why I’d do that as I can download them all right now if I wanted.

@sienna76: Oh! So you got to chose the 20 you wanted edited? How does that work? Hmmm… Also how about if you wanted extras edited? I should ask my photographer once I see them!

Our shoot was about 2 hours long. Our package included full rights to all photos on the DVD. All 1400+ photos. It an entire night to go through them.

We shot for 3 hours, received around 1,000 photos and 48 were edited. I am pretty sure she sent us every single picture that was taken, we got a lot of eyes closed, goofy mouthed ones. I’m not sure if we are allowed to edit the additional ones we like that she didn’t edit, we didn’t have a contract or anything.

@kmarie719: We got every photo taken, as well. Some of the goofy ones are my favorite, like this one where we are towards the end of the shoot and getting more direction from the photographer.

Our shoot took about 2 hours and we’re getting back 100 retouched/edited photos on DVD with coplyright release as part of our wedding package. Here’s one of them

Wow, I can’t believe some of you got that many photos from your e-session. 1400 in two hours? I don’t think we’ll even get 1400 on our wedding day!
Our session was almost 3 hours long, and we got ~430 photos, all edited, with print rights up to 8×10″. They’re not all great, but they’re all edited and we got all of them on a custom-designed case and lightscribed DVD.
This is our case–she used it for her product offerings page. No picture of our DVD, but she basically takes one of the photos and lightscribes it with her logo, your names, and I think the date?
Just as a note: you do NOT own the copyright, nor should the photographer be giving you the copyright. You should get print rights (not all photographers allow this), but NEVER the copyright. Copyright vs. print rights.

We got over 400 pictures from our engagement shoot which lasted a little over 2 hours.

@vorpalette Some photographers do sell you the copyright. I have a letter from my photographer stating that the photos he took no longer belong to him, but belong to my and Darling Husband to do with and reproduce as we wish.
