    Our photographer included an online gallery for viewing/downloading, but I put them in Flickr and Google+ albums too and shared them via email just for family and close friends, not all the guests.

    “Other” — I have a shutterfly set up (with full quality photos), so they can order off the website!

    ETA: We also have a full res gallery from our photographers

    @MrsSkeletonKey:  Yup! We have rights to all of our photos.. As long as they create a shutterfly account, they can order prints and pick them up anywhere *make sure you have the rights to your photos prior to doing this*… (it sounds like you do, if they’re giving them to you on a flash drive)

    @MrsSkeletonKey:  Thats how our contract is.. As long as we don’t make money on the photos, we can do as we wish (we can’t edit the photos except for color editing [B&W, Sepia, color saturation])

    @MrsPaperFlowers:  

    @MrsSkeletonKey:  

    speaking from a photographer’s standpoint…the shutterfly gallery isn’t cool. i mean, your photographer will likely never know and can’t do anything about it, but the wording on *my* license is only for the bride and groom. (yours may be different.) i also provide a gallery for clients to share with friends/family, and there is the option to order prints from me…they have all the photos and can make prints for whomever they’d like, but straight up bypassing me…

    some photographers charge a lot for prints…and in that case, as a future bride, i’d just make the prints for those people myself. it’s more hassle, for sure, so i totally understand WHY people upload the galleries for people, but from the other side of the table, it’s not strictly legal, and it’s frustrating.

    the alternative is that i also provide them with web-res images with a pretty subtle/inobtrusive watermark in a corner for sharing on social media. if your photographer doesn’t include that on the flash drive, perhaps you could request it? those images are already sized to upload quickly and look great on screen, and they give credit to your photographer.

    @MrsSkeletonKey:  like i said, i totally get it! the convenience factor of doing something like that can’t be beat! 😀 fingers crossed your photographer has viewing galleries…i think it’s safe to assume that s/he will! it’s pretty standard these days.
