  • All images will be sharpened and boosted in contrast.  Any images of the bride/groom will be retouched for skin blemishes, stray hairs, and teeth whitening as well. Black and white conversions will be done at the discretion of Monson Photography.
  • Shareable online gallery posting of your event, depending on amount of coverage/images and amount of editing required (typically 1 - 2 weeks for every hour of coverage purchased); delivery of images on a custom USB flash drive within two weeks of gallery posting.
  • A minimum of 8 hours of coverage is required in order to include 'getting ready' bridal images that are not staged.  If purchasing less than 8 hours coverage, the bride must be wearing her dress and ready to be photographed at the set arrival time of the photographer.
  • A USB flash drive of all proofed images.  Number of proofs is dependent on the number of hours of photographic services purchased and requests from the client.  However, a realistic estimate is 50 – 60 fully retouched photos per hour of coverage.
