I know with photographers this always seems to come up so I thought I would post a bit to educate those reading. When finding a photographer for your wedding you will notice you cannot acquire copyrights. This is JUST FINE! You don’t need and probably won’t want copyrights. You want printing rights. Copyrights allows you to say the photo is your work, not the items in the photo but the actual photo itself (it isn’t your work thus pretty much every photographer won’t give you that right). This allows you to go to a magazine, online stock photo company, or any company and sell that photo for profit.
Printing rights allows you to go where ever you want to print off your photo as large as it goes and on whatever you want to (i.e album, mugs, canvas etc.). You’ll also want to check out when you receive a disk of your photos if they are high resolution or only 4×6 most people only need 4×6 to send in thank you cards etc – but double check the fine print.
