What is a proof?

A proof is the first set of photos you see after the wedding!  You'll look at all of your proofs to choose the final prints for your album as well as your reprint orders.  Some of the ways photographers provide proofs to clients include: an online website, a DVD of computer screen images, or 4x6 inch photo prints.  Printed proofs may also come in the form of a contact sheet, which is a catalog of approximately 12 images on a page.  Be sure to ask your photographer exactly what type of proofing he or she offers.  Typically, proofs only have basic color correction or exposure adjustments made to them, with no specific retouching or other finishing techniques applied.  Some wedding photographers may add a logo and/or copyright information to their proofs, to discourage clients from making copies of what is considered an unfinished product.
