“Do I get the copyrights to my wedding pictures?”
The term copyright
is often misunderstood. I have realized that when most couples ask if they will receive the copyrights
to their wedding images, they actually mean printing rights.
As a bride, I know that I would like to be able to print my wedding pictures anytime and anywhere (of course, I would encourage you to invest in HIGH quality prints
since you have already invested in HIGH quality photography
, but more on that another time). As a photographer, I strongly believe in printing your images and keeping them as a legacy to show your children and grandchildren down the road. So, the answer is YES!
, we always give our couples a print release form
, that allows them to print their pictures, post them on social media and share them with family and friends, but they do not get the copyright
to the images.
