Crediting
Each image will now be credited individually and based specifically on the content of each individual image. Example: a photo of a bouquet will include a credit to the photographer and the florist, and a photo of the bride in her dress will include a credit to the photographer and the bridal salon. Photographers will receive credit for every image. If there are multiple vendors in a photo, we will include multiple credits.
