@Carolyn72: I don’t think having a pro photographer makes a perfect wedding.

It’s all about the EDITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My husband and I are photographers and we are editing our own pics. If you want, you can send me a few of your pics and I can edit them for you! Let me know!!

“It’s all about the editing!”

Spoken by a true non-photographer. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a “pro” photographer and I am still jealous of all the gorgeous pics I see. I am editing mine myself so I can understand how you feel. We had the cameras on the table so we are hoping that there are some items on there that the photographer missed.

Editing is just a bandaid, an image needs to be as correct as possible in camera, lighting, exposure, composition.  Also, no photographer should be editing another photographers images, as a pro, you should know this.

@Carolyn72:  As long as your family members give proper permission, that isn’t an issue, but a true professional will require a release in writing.

Your dad takes a picture, by law owns the copyright because he is the creator

Your photographer edits it and submits it to a contest

Photographer wins a million dollars

Your dad is pissed, it’s his image!

See where I am going?

Need to formalize things….and a pro knows this.

@USER876: I don’t think there is anything wrong with editing some of the pics that their guest took at their wedding! And I wouldn’t edit an out of focus shot. Obviously we choose some of the best and edit those!

I won’t be using any in a contest. Just trying to help a fellow bride. I wouldn’t want to feel as though I had no wonderful pictures from my day!
