@PizzutiStudios: Yep, i accept. Once again, Brides, you need to have full rights and need to have this confirmed with your photographer else it would get you in a sticky situation.

i am also a wedding photographer,   and it really depends what you mean by editing?

i give my clients a disc with basic colour correction  etc,   and they then choose 50-60  to go into an album, these 50-60 will then be fully edited,  ie.   cropped where necessary, distracting backgrounds , like cloning people or objects out etc.  this is extensive work and no,  i dont do it to the whole disc of photos….(sometimes 400-500) 

this disc is just the proof disc and the pics are low -res JUST  for choosing their album pics,  if they pay me for a full res disc then i go a little further with the editing .  but it is still only basic editng. i have been asked in the past to remove tattoos, remove people out of the photo’s ,but  this is extensive work , and if theres hundreds of them to do its going to take me days .  what the couple buy from me on a hi-res disc is just the images with printing rights. edited just for colour and sharpness. 

i dont consider basic colour correction to be editing at all,  its just getting them ready for the client to look at.   anything more than that,  then there has to be a charge as its so time consuming,  if their booked package includes an album containing 50-60 images,  then it is only those images that i will concentrate on.  the rest is obviously available,  but why would i do all that extra work for free? 

the proof disc i supply is low res and they are unable to edit them,  if they pay for  the hi-res disc,  then editing is possible.
