So from the flipside, what do you, as professional photographers do when it is your big day? I am currently single, but have been thinking about what I would do for my own wedding. As a photographer, I think I'd just want to have the RAW files right after the wedding and edit the pictures myself instead of waiting a few weeks to see them. What have you guy/gal photographers done?
I'm in the same boat. Getting married soon and nobody seems to want to give me the raws. I totally understand, it's just disappointing knowing I'm probably one of their few clients who (IMO) knows what they're doing.
But I'm so excited, and really love the work of the photographer I found that I've let the issue go. It really doesn't bother me. I know we will love the end product, and frankly I have a few things on my plate right now!
