Photography and Video
With most packages we provide you with a custom printed "Proof" DVD with hi-res images. This generally allows you to print sizes from wallets to 8x10's. We are currently considering Digital Downloads and USB Drives.
FAQ 10
The widespread belief is that you get full-rights (copyright) to your images. This is untrue. Per Federal law the artist (DKP-LLP) retains full copyright at all times. We do, however, provide you with a "print release" allowing you to print your images. You receive one release per disc.
FAQ 11
Images are generally online in about 4-6 weeks while the actual DVD could be 8-12 weeks, and the album could be up to 14 weeks. Edited videos, regardless of media type, will generally be 12-14weeks. Actual times may vary due to current schedule.
FAQ 12
Arrival time will be determined by the event type and package booked. For weddings we usually will start about 1.5hrs before you put your dress on. Other events will usually be about 30min before the actual start time unless other arrangements have been made.
