A Note on Music Choice:

You may choose your own music to accompany your video by providing it to me or purchasing a license from the music agency (support provided y RHP for this purpose). Please note that licensing commercial music by a well-known artist is generally outside the capabilities of most clients as the commercial license can cost 10's of thousands of dollars. Instead, many couples choose to use stock music or purchase a license for a cover of the song they like. Cover licenses are songs sung by another artist but generally in the style of the original artist. Their benefit is that they sound beautiful, are able to be posted online because of the license purchased, and generally cost less than $100.

Image Editing Services

Robert Hamm Photography offers Boutique Photo Editing standard with all wedding packages and offers Reconstructive photo edits as an upgrade option when needed. 

No Edit - Not available from Robert Hamm Photography

Some photographers do not curate or edit their photos. They photograph in a low-resolution mode (such as JPEG) and then post all of those images to an online gallery or burn the images to a disk or flash drive for delivery without editing or culling the images. This is extremely careless photography know as "shoot and burn", and is not practiced by Robert Hamm Photography. 

Standard Edit- Not available from Robert Hamm Photography

Standard edit photography generally allows for shooting in a higher resolution mode, such as for the camera raw file, and then uses software to process the image for delivery. Standard edits are created by applying "preset" photo characteristics to the image and allowing the computer software to auto adjust the image. Color, exposure, and contrast correction are made by the computer- not the photographer, and no blemish removal is offered. This photography editing style is not practiced by Robert Hamm Photography. 

Boutique Edit - Included with all images delivered by Robert Hamm Photography

Robert Hamm Photography is proud to offer boutique image editing with all services and products. Boutique Image editing is just that- a high-resolution magazine quality edit consisting of exposure, color, and contrast correction with skin softening and blemish removal. Each image is meticulously looked at by Robert, evaluated for photographic merit and album inclusion, edited, and proudly delivered.  About ninety-five percent (95%) of all images edited by Robert Hamm fall into this category. The rest need some form of reconstruction as detailed next.

Reconstructive Edit - Available as needed by Robert Hamm Photography      

Reconstructive editing is a kind of edit that rebuilds an image to correct some unwanted elements within the photo. Reconstruction can include body-scaping (slimming parts of the body), landscaping (such as adding in clouds to an overcast day), or facial reconstruction (such as removing swear, repairing scars, removing Rosacea, et.cetera).

Reconstructive edits are labor-intensive and contain many steps. All boutique image editing steps must be done first, then the image is ready for reconstruction in Adobe Photoshop. General editing time per image can range between thirty-minutes and one hour.           

Robert Hamm offers posing and portraiture advice for all couples. This is one way to minimize the need and cost for reconstructive edits. With this in mind, only about five percent (5%) of images may need reconstruction, and that is up to the client.

For example:

1) If your best man forgot to wear red socks and you want those socks changed from red to blue, or

2) an overcast sky ruined your family portraits and you want to replace that sky with a better one, or

3) if you are very concerned about your image and think a particular image needs Robert to hit the "ten-pound-button";

Then Robert Hamm Photography can accommodate that request.

Pricing is dependent upon the total number of images requested, the minimum service is $50 for one image. Multiple images discount available upon request.

Image Editing Examples

Rush Delivery

Rush delivery services are available dependent upon the current volume of work Robert Hamm Photography is experiencing. TherRush service guarantees delivery of images within one week.

When rush services are requested, the service will be limited to one gallery of images. Robert Hamm Photography generally delivers five galleries for full wedding photography. They are Detail Images, Pre Wedding Images, Ceremony Images, Reception Images, and Formal Images. 

The rush service charge is $500 per gallery. Most brides would like an assortment of images from all their galleries. If that is what the bride would like, Robert Hamm Photography will choose 100 images from across all galleries to provide a Photographer Favorites gallery.  Your remaining images will be delivered at the normal time.

If you wish to have your entire wedding delivered as a rush service, then the price would be $2,500. 

If your wedding was an elopement or short photography service, then the rush service will apply to all your images. This is generally an option when Robert Hamm Photography is providing photographic services through a wedding planning company to an outside wedding planner.
