One question couples never ask when interviewing me for a wedding shoot is:
“How do you protect our wedding photos?”
I do not know what others do but these are the steps that George Ross Photography takes to protect your wedding memories…
At the wedding:
I use a Canon EOS 1D Mk IV which has two memory card slots and I set the camera up to record to both memory cards. Each photograph I take on the 1D is recorded twice….just in case, and it is very unlikely, there is a problem with one memory card.
In the Office:
- The files are stored in a Thunderbay RAID storage system (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is a data storage virtualization technology that combines multiple physical disk drive components into a single logical unit for the purposes of data redundancy, performance improvement, or both.
- Cloud storage: the client files on the RAID system are also stored off-site – a good disaster recover practice
- Memory cards: the memory cards used at the wedding are never reused – they are put into storage
- The couple are provided with a gold photo disc with all photos and a copy of the highlight wedding video
So, when you interview your ‘potential’ wedding photographer make sure you inquire about the steps taken to protect your wedding memories.
