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 1DX and EOS1d MK IVs each of 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 recovery practice
  • After all that. the files that are stored on the RAID system, are then backed up to a second RAID system.
  • 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[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
