In our wedding photographer's contract it states that she includes the "Copyright RELEASE to ALL Images" and does not specify to only the edited images. Do we have the right to demand the RAW image files as well?
The "edited" photos of my daughter's wedding on washed out to the point that skin tone is not flattering, the white dress melts into the white sand and shows no detail and eye sockets are black like zommbies yet our photographer is refusing to edit photos because she says this is the way she edits ALL her wedding photos. We reviewed examples of other wedding photos she had took on white sand in her website gallery and none of these looked as harsh as ours. The photographer (who was paid in full) is refusing to make adjustments even though we have offered to come to her at her convenience. She keeps stating that she is too busy to do so and is under stress.
Do we are considering taking legal actions and need to know if we have the right to demand the RAW files. At this point, I would just be happy to obtain these memories and pay someone else to edit them.
