As a full-time wedding photographer (and past bride), I know firsthand how important it is to ensure a couple that their images from their wedding day are safe. I’m sure we all have heard one-too-many horror stories of images getting lost, a memory card getting corrupted, etc. I know how special and cherished a wedding day is; it flies by so quickly. Your wedding photos will be images that you cherish for a lifetime.
So to give you some peace of mind, I’m here to ensure you that your images are safe with me. Let me tell you how!
How I Backup My Images
- Throughout your wedding day, I am shooting on 2 memory cards at all times. This ensures that if one of the memory cards is corrupted, the other card will still have the images. A bonus?? I always have a second-shooter with me on a wedding day – trust me, we’ve got your back!
- As soon as I get home, I download your images onto 2 separate hard drives (yes, even if it’s 1:00 a.m.). Once the images are downloaded, I put the 2 memory cards into a fireproof safe. These memory cards do not get touched or taken out until your images are delivered to you.
- All images are also stored in an online Cloud System.
The trust my couples have in me that I not only capture their special day, but protect those images, is a job I take very seriously. I am here to make sure you and your love don’t have a single worry in the world regarding the delivery of your wedding day photos.
