Data Backup Plan for Wedding Photography Images

Data Backup Plan For Wedding Photography ImagesAs a professional photographer, having a data backup plan for the digital images captured is beyond essential. Add to that the "it-can't-be-done-over" aspect of wedding photography, and the need for redundancy becomes paramount. Every photographer I know appreciates this.
