I think they do this so you can’t just print a tonne of them… maybe? and so you have to order prints of the ones you want w/o the stamp. At least some places do this (kinda like grad photos, where they have the copyright stamp) I could also, just not know what I’m talking about :p but there’s my 2 cents

They put their stamp on it when they give you a code to look at them online or post them online with your permission. This is so you can’t right-click the pic, save it, and print it yourself, but instead either have to purchase the prints from them or purchase the rights to the pictures. They have to make a living somehow! Smile

It depends on your contract. Our photogs ask that any photos we share online we use the copies with their stamp but they also send us all of the photos without because we have printing rights (meaning we can print whatever photos we want, when we want, for whoever we want)

The proofs come with the stamp across them. Once you order them, they should be free from any marks from the photographer.

Most would put the watermark on web copies not the print one.

Depends on the photographer and the contract.  Most boudoir photographers do not hand over full resolution photos, because they are counting on print and album sales to offset lower session costs. But all photographers have different business models. Most of our clients doing boudoir sessions have no intention of the photos ever being on a computer, they are doing the session specifically with the intent of producing an album or a physical gift.  So we do offer a disc if people want it, but it’s a separate fee and very rarely do they buy it.  When we sell a disc or include a disc it is always with two sets of images, full resolution un-marked images for prints, and smaller resolution marked images for the web.

Our photographer gave us all of our photos, sans watermark, in two resolutions: one for printing up to 8×10, and the other for web. We do have some with her logo (but it’s not on the pictures, it’s on a border) that were from her blog. I can see why they would do it for web photos.
