Choosing the right Montreal wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when planning your wedding. A good fit will result in images you’ll cherish forever. But if your wedding photos don’t turn out well, you will be one unhappy newly wed couple!
Make sure you have chemistry with your photographer. Your photographer is going to be with you from the morning until the end of the night, so make sure you enjoy being around each other. The biggest favour a couple can do for themselves is to openly trust their photographer/videographer to do a great job. When artists feel you trust them, we’re confident in our skills and we thrive. Older photographers tend to be set in their ways and stubborn. Younger photographers like us tend to look at things with a fresh eye and be more open minded.
It seems that a lot of brides are being advised by friends, family or wedding information sites that they should be asking their photographer for the RAW files from which their wedding photos are produced. Requests of this nature are on the rise, and many wedding photographers are less than thrilled about that development. We take a different approach, this is your wedding, your memories and you deserve every image we capture. If you supply us an external hard drive we will be more than happy to transfer all the RAW files for you. Photographers are reluctant to give out their RAW files because they are the equivalent of a rough draft. Many photographers will not release anything but the finished product.
What are RAW files? RAW files are the basic, unprocessed data from your photographer’s digital camera. In this form, images cannot be viewed on most home computers without purchasing and installing special software, nor can they be printed. In effect, they are not yet pictures. These files will need to be processed to JPEG before they can be viewed on many computers.
