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!).
