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 for some unwanted element within the photo. Reconstruction can include bodyscaping (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, minimum service is $50 for one image. Multiple images discount available upon request.

Additional Services

Additional Hours of Photography:

Should you require additional hours of photography for the Sweet 8 and Signature 15 wedding plans, each additional hour will be billed at $225.

Additional Photographers:

An additional photographer, when requested by the bride or groom and purchased alongside a listed photography package above, is $500 for half a day, or $1000 for the entire day. A half a day service is four hours. Full day service is eight  hours.

Videography Services when added on to a current wedding plan:

Robert Hamm Photography offers three different video products; Love Story, Boutique Highlight, and Cinematic Video.

The Love Story is a video focusing on the Bride and Groom. It is romantic in nature, one song in length, and comes with standard stock music of your choice. The Final video is generally 4-5 minutes in length. No wedding audio is captured. $500

The Boutique Highlight video is like a like a 12-minute  three act play. It includes a love story, the ceremony, and after party. Each section of the video has it's own stock music, theme, and feel. The Love Story is romantic, the Ceremony is dignified and beautiful, and the after party will reflect the environment of your reception; generally energetic. The final video length is between 10-15 minutes long. No wedding Audio is recorded. $900

The Cinematic Video is a feature length video which includes full wedding ceremony audio and family/guest well wishes to the bride and groom. The audio is recorded using professional audio equipment. Your choice of stock music is also provided to augment the soundscape.

This product takes the three act play concept of the Boutique Highlight Video and expands on it to create a  short film about 30 minutes or more in length. It includes two additional sections which focus on the bride and bridesmaids preparation and the groom and groomsmen preparation. $1500

All Video Products include careful planning, beautiful editing and color correction, multiple cameras and angles, and subtle transitions. Delivery of video may occur flash drive due to the size of the file. When there is an option, you will be able to make the choice between disk or drive.

...

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. 

Videography Services when purchased as a stand alone package:

A discount is applied when purchasing wedding photography and videography. That discount is stated above.  For stand alone purchases, the description of each video product remains the same as when purchased with a photography plan. The pricing changes as follows:

The Love Story- $1000

The Boutique Highlight Video- $1,800

The Cinematic Video- $3,000

Photo Booth Services:

Photo booths run consecutively with the reception. Prices are based on four hours. All services include custom backdrop, lights, props, custom designed filmstrip template, the option to upgrade from film strips to portraits, immediate print services, up to 800 filmstrip prints, and all images on DVD and online.  $625

Scrapbooking Service:

The scrapbooking service includes a custom made scrapbook for the bride and groom presented to them at the end of the reception. It includes fully edited images, cut outs, scrapbooking stickers and theme to match the couple, and guest  signatures. This service is amazing. It is our most requested add on. $500.
