So you try to book your wedding photographer and you're on a budget and so you think of an idea: what if I tell the photographer that they don't have to edit the images, I can either do it myself or my aunt is a semi professional photographer and knows how to edit. You're thinking the photography coverage will be cheaper! Actually not, in most cases it will cost more.
The best way that I've heard this explained before is that RAW files are a lot like uncooked ingredients. Once the images have been edited, it's almost like cooking them... they become a final product. But the uncooked ingredients are more valuable because from them, you can cook what ever you want... meaning you can edit the images however you want.
When I edit images from your wedding, it's more work for me but complimentary to you because I can't just hand you over RAW ingredients...you're not a chef. When I am behind the camera, I am capturing the moment the way I see it. I've started a painting and I must finish it in post processing. I can't give you my unfinished work for you to change.
When looking for a discount on wedding photography, asking for RAW files is not the way to go. What's great about my wedding collections is that I do not require a full payment up front. 40% along with travel fees are due in order to secure your date and the remaining balance is due 14 days before your wedding date. Payment plans are an option as well.
