    As I stated above, they are for proofing purposes.  Some people like the disk, instead of looking at an online gallery.  Plus they are websize and can be used on facebook, social sharing, emailling,etc.  To be honest, in my experience, everyone wants the “rights” to print, but in the end, uses them for social sharing only, and never really get around to making prints.  Just my experience with clients.  This is another reason why I prefer to supply the prints, at least it will get done and they will have smoething enjoyable and beautiful for their home.

    @Lt.Columbo: You obviously don’t work in a creative field. 🙂 A recording artist pays a song writer thousands and thousands of dollars to write a song for them but the writing credits stay with song writer, the person who created it. It doesn’t get transferred to the singer just because they paid lots of money for it. If photographers didn’t retain rights to their images they would never have anything to show to someone like you to help you make a decision about who to hire. Just think about it from our perspective.

    And trust me, no photographer is going to be using dated images from your wedding for promotion 20 years, or probably even 2 years from now. 🙂

    @USER876: Yes and that’s all fine and dandy, but I wouldn’t want a disc I couldn’t print from. Call me the exception, but I have tons of prints in my house, so does my mom. We scrapbook. If I was told I couldn’t print the wedding photos off a disc I ALREADY have, then I wouldn’t even want to have it. All I was saying.

    @AmeliaBedelia: right, so for you, paying extra for a disk of high res photo’s with printing rights is worth it.  Not everyone wants this.

    @AmeliaBedelia: You aren’t the only one. I’ve also printed off photos, so the high-res disc with print rights was important to me too.

    @mkewed2010: See if you can negotiate the print rights with the photographer. A disc with images you aren’t allowed to print (or are watermarked), would be less than useful, in my opinon.

    @USER876: Actually mine was included, my photog includes it in every package no matter if you choose the cheapest or most expensive. But yes, it’s important to me, as I have the feeling it’s important to a large amount of brides since it comes standard with a lot of photographers in my area.

    @StarryNight2011: I figured it was important to at least SOME people or it wouldn’t be an option/issue, right? Lol.

    @AmeliaBedelia: I think it’s important to a lot of people. 🙂 The print rights were included with my package as well.
