Can I purchase all of the unedited photos from my photo shoot?
This is a question that gets asked frequently from some customers when inquiring about a photo shoot.
If you take a look at our pricing page you will not find a price listed anywhere on it that says: All Unedited Photos From Your Shoot.
Any guess why?
Because WE DO NOT OFFER IT!
Here are a few other questions that are similar in nature and get asked A LOT.
“Instead of getting only 3 edited photos from my shoot, can you just give me all the unedited images for the same price?”
No. Besides, why would you want all the images anyway?
Let me explain.
As a photographer, my job is to take amazing photos that you will love and want to proudly display or share with other people. I take a handful of shots in each pose because the slightest movement can either make or break a photo. Every photo may look good, but there will always be one that stands out as the BEST!
For example, below are five portraits that I photographed of my daughter. Four of them were not edited, and final photo that I selected was.
Each of the five shots look pretty good by their self. However, when your start looking at all of them together, you will notice that some of the portraits really could look better.
This first photo is cute.
If it was the only image shot in this pose I would be satisfied and purchase the photo.
But.... When I compare it to the second image, I see immediately that I do not like how she is holding the football in the first image.
So now, I like the second image the best and would purchase this photo instead of the first.
Now, when I look at the third image, I notice that I do not like how she is leaning back in the second image. Her posture looks much better in the third.
So now, I like the third image the best and would purchase this photo instead of the second.
Ok, image three looks great because the football is properly placed, her posture is good, and her legs now have a little space between them. They look much better now, than when they were posed together.
So now, I like the fourth image the best and would purchase this photo instead of the third.
Finally, the fifth image. When I compare it with the fourth, I immediately notice the lack of eye connection in that fourth image. The fifth image has all items that made each shot better than the previous.
So now, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the fifth image the best and would DEFINITELY PURCHASE this photo!
Every photo purchased includes FREE standard editing to enhance the portrait.
So what is the point in wanting to have every UNEDITED photo when only the BEST will be displayed or shown to everyone?
“Can I have all the pics from the shoot without editing and how much would it cost?”
If you would like to purchase every photo from the shoot you can. Each additional photo that goes over the included photo amount in the option package you select is only $50 and comes with FREE standard editing. It would be hard to predict the final cost ahead of time, because the number of photos taken in each shoot can vary, but it could get very expensive if there is 100+ photos from the shoot.
“How much for a CD of all the unedited pictures?”
Unfortunately, I recently upgraded to new computer and it does not have a CD drive located anywhere on it. So it would be impossible to burn you a CD. Besides, every purchased photos come with FREE standard editing and they are delivered to you in a modern, convenient method.
Hopefully this blog post answers your question about buying all unedited photos.
