Q & A: How many images do we receive of our wedding?

Q. How many images will we receive when we hire Laibel Schwartz Photography, Inc. for our wedding?

A. The number of images you’ll receive of your wedding will vary greatly depending on many factors. On average, you’ll have somewhere around 700-900, though there may sometimes be more or less.

Q. What determines the number images you receive?

A. The length of your wedding, the number of guests, and the “extras” that some people have (and some people don’t) such as cake cutting, speeches, father/daughter and mother/son dance, etc.

Q. Do you deliver every image that you take?

A. What we deliver to our clients is the culmination of our photographic perspective of your wedding. We do everything we can to capture the emotions filling the room, the details that you put so much time and effort into planning, the moments that you want to forever remember, the look of seeing each other as husband and wife for the first time…and so much more. It is important to us that we give you everything that documents your day, leaving out the images where people blinked, faces blurred because someone moved too quickly, or our flash didn’t fire. We know every moment is precious to you, and we work hard to deliver everything you’re looking for. Feel that something’s missing? Well, you know we tried.

Be honest. Would you hang up a portrait in which your sister’s eyes are closed?

Since any post without an image might feel a little lonely, I’ve attached one of our favorite family portraits below. Yep, right outside the Jerusalem old city walls…

Q & A: High Res. Images. What are they?

Q.  What exactly are ‘High Res. images’?  Are they watermarked?  Will they print?

A.  When hiring Laibel Schwartz Photography, Inc. you will receive High Resolution images, approximately 1200×1800 pixels in size. What does that mean? You’ll be able to print your images up to an 8×12″ image, big enough for all your scrapbooking, proofs for Shabbos, and sending prints to your family.

They are edited for color and exposure, and they are not watermarked. We have copyright on any images we take (as the creator(s)), but when you hire us, we’ll give you a Print Release that means you’re welcome to print them out where ever you like.

We’ll also provide you with a set of a smaller image size ready for upload onto facebook and twitter, or for emailing all your friends and extended family who couldn’t make it to your wedding.
