Quick question Guys and Gals,

You cover a wedding as per normal, and after the big day, a 3rd party that was also supplying services to the bride and groom ask if they can purchase a few images from you to use in their marketing material.

Lets say the car company want to use the shot that you took of the B&G in front of their cars, or the cake company want the shot of the cutting the cake, or the flower shop wants to use the bouquet shots etc, etc

Do you
A) Sell the use of the images to them, and walk away happy .. end of.
B) Sell the use of the images, but ask the B&G if they would object
BEFORE handing over any images, explaning their intended use.
C) Say you can't hand over images (for whatever reason you want to use)
D) Give them the images free? :eek:
E) Some other outcome

Thanks

Jim..

Please do a search. This has been addressed here repreated, once not very long ago. The short answer is that you want to develop these relationships and should seek out opportunities to make these images available to other wedding vendors at no cost in exchange for proper credit and the establishment of a referral relationship.

If my B&G signed my standard contract with its model release clause, then yes, I would not hesitate to sell the images to a third party. Sometimes, though, you might be able to barter them for referrals, or website links, or something like that.

Hi Robert,

Actually, I did a search for "images 3rd party", "sell images to wedding suppliers", and a few others.

I came up blank,

I appreciate it's all in the keywords, and it not maybe 100% obvious what I should have been searching for.

Thanks for the feedback so far guys

Jim..

No issues, and I know searches can be that way. Here's the more recent string I was thinking of:

Okay guys,

Well after reading the previous thread, and the comments on this one, I'm off to try the "have it for free, but please remember me route"

Thanks to all.

Jim..

Better make sure you have one of these, in that case:

Yeah, I know, but I was gonna just concentrate initially on images of the vendor's product, and so didn't show the B&G ..

I always try and get a few of JUST the product (without the B&G) in case the BG really don't want to have their image used for someone elses advertising.

I have a release clause as well, but if they really object I don't push the issue. But if I have some of just the cars\cake\flowers they can have them :)

If another vendor wants my images for advertising, my cost is that they add me as a link on their website. Easy!
