Yay for cheapassity!

Our wedding photographer just called.  They are clearing out their files from '07 and '08 and are destroying the file with our wedding photos.  We didn't buy the copyright because I think they wanted $1500 or something insane. 

Since they're destroying the files, they are selling us a disc with the photos and the copyright for $100.  I'm so glad we were cheap (by cheap I mean poor, and by poor, I mean not stupid) 3 years ago!

Re: Yay for cheapassity!

  • Rock on!  You just saved yourself $1400.  You should buy yourself something nice.

  • That's awesome, but if they were going to destroy it anyway, why not just give it to you?
  • that's pretty cool that they called and offered it.  Now you should do funny photoshops and post them here.

  • Someone got themselves a coke habit since you got married and need funds fast.   Congrats!

    What kind of idiot would do that?

    Mysterious Caller: Is this Groomz McFinehiney?

    Groomz McFinehiney: Why yes, indeed it is, how may I help you on this lovely afternoon?

    MC:  I have your wedding pictures.

    GM: Well of course you do, my friend.  You own the copyright.

    MC: If you don't do exactly as I say, I will DESTROY THEM.  Mwuahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

    GM: Oh my, what are your demands?

    MC: Just give me you address, and I'll mail them to you along with the copyright at my own expense. 

    See, that doesn't even make sense.

  • Jerrous!! But you just sunk my battlesh*ts that my engagement pic files are still lovingly being stored and cared for. We never got the rights to those and I never ordered any prints. Sad face.
  • I am amazed that photogs don't just offer the rights as part of the package anymore as standard.
  • This is really odd to me because every photographer I looked at for our wedding gave you the rights to all your photos.  Maybe it's a regional thing?

  • I get them, but not until my album is done.  And I've been dragging my feet on finalizing the album images, so by the time I get my pics/rights, it will be 3/4 of a year since my wedding.

  • I don't remember the pricing, but it was something along the lines of:

    2 8x10's and 12 wallets - reasonable price

    Full wedding album and framed portrait - first born child

    Disc with your photos, copyright to photos and a picture of photographer's mom's ass - Eleventy million dollars

    Wedding album, portrait and disc and copyright - A Brazillion dollars and blowjobs for the entire staff, including Uncle Morty the sweaty lighting device holder upper guy.
