Rach! Or any other MB Bride :)

Hey! I just got off the phone with Cashman about getting the disk and....WTF?? $700! for a total of like maybe 70pic's and only about 20-25 I actually want! So my question...did you buy? I mean I have my other photo's and such... it's just that these are ceremony pic's that you HAVE to order thru them :(

Ok pouting over....

    No way did we buy the digital images from MB!! For us, it was about $1200---almost TWICE what we paid for Todd for 8 hours!! Granted, Todd didn't get any ceremony pictures, so the only shots of the actual ceremony are from MB---and I think we got 10 5x7's with our package, and bought a few more (and bought the photo book they put together)...I couldn't justify $1200 for a half an hour of pictures.

    Would the digital images have been nice? Yes. But, I have all the digital images from Todd, and I've yet to do anything with them yet....eek.

    See that's why I am so glad we did the outside photographer! I really want them so I can do my own photobook later on but seriously can not justify the cost! I think I will just ask my Mom which are her must have out of them and order her those copies, but leave it at that. I tried to see if they would give me right to ONLY the ones I want and they won't do that, which IMO is stupid! Because hey! either way you make money. Oh well...

    exactly---they make money either way, so I'm not sure what the point is. I'm still really sad that they had every.single.picture. they took of us printed out "just in case" we wanted to buy them...and when we didn't? Oy...my guess is they ended up in the trash. I just don't get it.

    It makes me want to stalk their trashcan!!! I know after the wedding it is going to be sooo hard not to buy everything! I think I get 20 4X6s and a few 5X10s.

    Stinker-- so you just called after the wedding to get prices? I heard they will come down in price after a couple of months...

    Rach - OMG! That is stupid! I can not belive they do that.

    D- I knew that I did not want to sit thru the sales pitch so I had them just give me the password and picked the ones I wanted from home and I called them today, but they only give you access for a few months. So maybe I will try one more time closer...

    They quoted me like $1800 for our CD, which I don't see us doing when the time comes.  I will probably just take the pics that are included in our package and maybe buy a few extra. This really makes me glad we got an outside photographer.  What a rip!

    I'm having the same issue.  Cry We really want all the ceremony pictures but for the CD they want about 1200 for 134 pictures that where taken.  I really want it. Maybe I'll just buy all the ceremony pictures and scan them. 

    I'm still waiting for Mike L's picture's.  I probably wont even think of cashman's pic's after I see his work.  Already love his teaser pic's of us on his Blog.

    I have heard of the in house photogs printing and blowing up pictures for the sales pitch meetings. What a waste of pictures!! That's just crazy to me. Seems if they can afford to print them out and waste them, surely they can afford to lower the prices. Blahggg.

    Mel! I am sure you will be happy with MikeL and it will help! I promise :) But...It's still the ceremony so that's the part that is frustrating!

    ebony & wenawinter - EXACTLY!!

    BUT...each 5X7 (the smallest they sell, I think) is $10 each. SO if you buy all 134 pictures, it's $1,340!! It would actually be cheaper to buy the digital rights <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-frown.gif" border="0" alt="Frown" title="Frown" />

    I have a question. If you just buy the prints and not the cd, can you scan them and print them? Will they have some weird watermark? Would I be breaking some law?

    You could scan them but the quality will only be as good as your scanner. I think you would only be breaking copyright if you scanned them and then tried to sell them as your own.

    I know they're so expensive.  We actually purchased a few extra when we went for the appointment.  They hooked us.  I don't think we will buy prints of all the pictures just the ceremony ones.  I think then I can stomach the price.
