Our photographers guarantee they will take at least twice as many images as is included with most wedding packages, though they often take more. They will take pre-ceremony, ceremony and post-ceremony portraits so that you will have a variety from which to choose.
Your portraits will be online in a private online gallery 24-48 hours after your wedding and they will be on line for 60 days. You will be given a special password to access your portraits so you can make your selection of images for your digital CD album. Please use the Photo Selection Form provided to you at the Chapel. If you are unable to locate the Photo Selection Form let us know and we will provide you with another form
You are also welcome to invite friends to look at them at no additional cost. Your Digital CD album and the copyrights to those images (and your video if you package included a video) will be shipped to you approximately three to four weeks from the date you make your selections (not your wedding date). The copyrights to the images is printed on the back of your CD album case.
We can not accommodate guests taking pictures on the chapel grounds or in our chapel building. Guests are not permitted to use their cameras in the Chapel's Sanctuary, during the wedding ceremony or on the property after the wedding as we need to prepare for other weddings that may be occurring that day. It would be great if you would let your guests know about being "UNPLUGGED" from their cell phones and cameras during your wedding and just enjoy this special time for the two of you. We want your guests to enjoy your wedding without being paparazzi and getting their cameras in all of your wedding portraits.
YOUR ONLINE PHOTO GALLERY: Again: within 24-48 hours after your wedding, the photo lab will create your personal online digital photo gallery of all of the portraits taken during your wedding. This gallery will be available online for 60 days so that you will have plenty of time to view and select the portraits that come with your wedding. Please note that these portraits are not high definition online, but will be burned to your CD or printed in high definition. The photo lab will light and color correct images where needed. If you would like your portraits “photo-shop” edited, the photo lab does charge for those services. After 60 days, the gallery will automatically become unavailable online. Please order the images that come with your wedding package with 12 months of your wedding, however, in most cases, the photo lab keeps the original CD's for up to 3 years. If you need them placed back online after the complimentary 60 day grace period, there will be a $25 fee for the photo lab to recreate the gallery and host the portraits for an additional 30 days.
"PHOTOGRAPHY": Again, the contract with the photographers does not permit guest photographers or wedding guests to use their personal cameras. There is a set of core portraits that the photographers work to take. They will take portraits, before, during and after your wedding ceremony, however, they do not guarantee specific poses that you may see on our website. They will try to accommodate specific requests if possible. For the TWICEISNICE photo special, when available under the Specials Tab, the photographers will guarantee to take at least twice as many digital images as listed for the wedding packages before the special. Again, they typically do take more.
Please note that the images are not always sequentially numbered and when making your selection, please select the IMG number, not the PAGE number. We want to ensure you receive the images you really want! If you have any questions, please call the photo lab at 865-430-3372
** Copyrights to all photography remain the property of the Gatlinburg Wedding Center, LLC. We share the copyrights with couples that get married with us for the images included with your wedding package. You can print them, post them and share them anyway you like!
