My daughter just had professional engagement photos taken and we bought the rights to them.  They were straight out of the professional's camera (she did not edit them at all) and so I edited them in PSE.

We're in the professional forum so I can't let the above pass without a mention. Did you purchase a FULL copyright release or simply a print release? If it's just a print release (which is the industry standard for digital files purchased by portrait clients) than you should NOT be editing those images!

On the other hand, if they are straight out of the camera, they may require editing in order to print well. It kind of depends partly on the settings of the camera. Different settings would optimize printing directly vs. post processing before printing.
