What do I get when I order digital downloads?
We’ll prepare a ZIP file (almost any computer can open this file type) of all your full resolution files (as JPEG files). You may download this ZIP file as many times as you like for ten days. You’ll need to contact us if you need to download your photos again after ten days pass.

Can I print my files? Share them online?
Yes and yes! You can do anything with your photos that you could do with digital photos you took yourself. We can also send you a print release with your photos in case a lab you use requires one.

Will my photos have a watermark?

How do I order prints?
You can order prints from within your gallery. Click the blue “Buy” button located above the large photo on the right side of the screen. From there, you can select your print size, crop your photos, add more photos to your cart, and check out securely through SmugMug, the company that provides our photo hosting and printing.
