I purchased the high-res CD and really wouldn’t consider doing anything else.  Without the rights to the high-res images, every print, album, photobook, etc MUST be purchased through your photographer (which will cost you WAY more than if you could purchase them elsewhere).  Even 10, 15, 20 years down the road, it would be necessary to go back to your wedding photographer to get any print.  It sounds like a lot of money up front but I think owning the rights to the images will save you money in the long run.

@Mrs.KMM:

YES.

The high res images of all your pictures is the last thing I would cut out.

I would cut budget for dress, wedding band, DJ, basically everything before cutting out the pictures.

I agree, the high-res CD is the LAST thing I would cut out of photography.  Can you try to cut something else out… like online viewing, prints, second shooter, or get a less expensive album?

I’d like to share my experience with you.   I had an officiant & photographer package for my NYC destination wedding.  I opted to have the images loaded onto a gallery for me to have.  No resolution was specified as I just (wrongfully) assumed that surely I would be given the best quality of picture.  That was not the case.. and had I not complained for 2 months and seen the photos that the photographer put on her blog highlighting her work I would have not known that nonblurry & nonfaded photos existed.  Luckily since i have highlighted the fact that she has good pictures to advertise her work but has given her customer horrible pictures.. she has now uploaded them onto a high resolution site.

Please get them.. or you will be sorry.

@MellowPossum:

Someone else had the same experience. They could barely print 8.5×11 prints!

The other thing to make sure is that your images will NOT be watermarked.

I think the high res is SO worth the money, you will have them FOREVER that way.
