One of the options included in my higher end packages is something I call the ‘Same-Day Edit’. Many don’t know what that is, so I’m going to share all of what that entails here…
I remember when my wife and I got married, we took a 7 hour drive up the coast for the first stop of our honeymoon road trip. When we arrived we soaked up the sights and sounds of being on vacation and away from home. After so much time having been invested in planning our wedding, we wondered how it turned out! What did our guests think, did the cake turn out the way it was in the pictures, did our florist come through with the amazing flowers we hoped, and what did we look like all decked out? The wedding day for a bride/groom flies by so quickly it’s hard to remember details, you are the center of attention the entire day and because of that, there is a lot that you can miss. We just wanted a quick peak at a few pictures from our wedding. We resorted to Facebook to see what our friends had put up, but were left unsatisfied.
Fast Forward to today:
This is why I include the option for the Same-Day edit. What I do is bring a 32″ TV to the wedding and set it up before any of the festivities. When the reception begins, it will show beautiful photos from the engagement session for your guests to enjoy while waiting for the grand entrance. THEN, when dinner is served, I will take a handful of pictures taken up until that point, edit them, and put them into a slide show for everyone to enjoy. Guests are ALWAYS blown away that they get to see EDITED pictures of the first kiss, the bridal party being silly, getting ready shots, and the romantics of the bride and groom within only a few hours of the photos having been taken. It’s quite a contrast when compared to the typical wait of 4-8 weeks to get the first glimpse. An added bonus of the same day edit is that the photos are put online within 24 hours of the wedding so the bride/groom and guests can come back and view them again!
People have a crazy desire for immediate gratification (myself included), and this offering acknowledges that.
I want to know what you think! If you’ve already been married is this something you wish you could have had? If you haven’t been married yet, is this something you would like to have?
