Stretch Your Wedding Budget--Photography Registry

Brides have been asking about ways to add their wedding photography to their bridal registry and we can now accomodate it! It is as simple as telling your family and friends in an email or on your personal wedding website where to find us. If you are HTML savvy, just create a link to Marc Littmann Photography somewhere on your webpage. Or just include in an email to them and they will be able to purchase a gift certificate good for any amount they want. It will be placed in your name as a regular store credit towards prints, an album or even towards your remaining deposit on your wedding package.

To DVD or Not to DVD, That is the Question

One of the most frequent questions I am asked is whether we offer a DVD with print files included in our packages. It's a good question, as photographers often don't want to give up their reprint revenue stream. But many couples want to own a copy of the DVD for safekeeping and ease of making reprints 2, 5 or 10 years down the road. We offer such a DVD on our Grand Tetons package for no extra cost. But for those working within a more limited budget range and who don't need the unlimited coverage of our 'grandest' package, we can create a modified version that substitutes certain items and even some of the print credit towards the purchase of the DVD with the print files. For example, a Boulder, Colorado couple decided to swap the thank you photographs and the slideshow DVD and received a credit to be used towards the purchase of the print file DVD. After an additional charge and a reduction of their print credit, they had exactly what they wanted and remained within the budget they set for themselves for wedding photography. And they'll go to the altar and live happily ever after (without breaking the bank!).

How Does the Print Credit Work?

One question I get asked a lot is how the retail print credit works in our packages. Each package option comes with a print credit that is similar to a gift certificate. For instance, if you have purchased the Maroon Bells package and receive the $1000 print credit, you will be issued a code that you punch into the website with your photos on it. So if a 4x6 costs $6.00, ordering two of these reduces your print credit by $12.00. Order 25 5x7s and 10 8x10s, then even another 200 4x6 prints and you can just keep going until you burn up the $1000 credit. Beyond that, prints are then paid for via credit card after your print credit is used up.

Eye For Detail

The majority of our photographs are shot digitally in color, with the option of going to black and white, sepia, cross-processing or selective color interpretations as seen in this image. During the editing process following your wedding, we will concentrate our efforts to produce more (or less) of certain color styles, depending on your personal taste. Be sure to let us know "I love sepia, but don't care too much for black and white images," or "Get as creative as you want, Marc, with bringing back color on an image you have previously converted to black and white." The more we know about your personal tastes, the happier you will be with your final result.
