Yes, both our parents wanted full copies of the disk of wedding photos our photographers gave.  I refused, and gave them only prints of ones I approved. 

DH’s dad loves to show pictures on the tv.  The last thing I need is bad pictures of me being blown up on a 50 inch.

Not with photographer’s pictures but definitely with personal digital pictures. The delete button is my best friend.

You have every right to block access to the pictures you don’t like.

@tinylittlebird: Yep, I have a little bit of back fat that everybody says isn’t even noticeable in some pictures, so the photographers probably didn’t think they were “bad” pictures.  I just feel like my dress was done up a little too tight, and isn’t flattering in some photos.  There’s so many good pictures that I don’t see the harm in not distributing ones I don’t LOVE.

well, we didn’t have engagment pictures, but if we had, i probably would have done the same thing!  I’d only let them see the ones i loved of us!  so i can’t blame you!

@julies1949:Sort of 🙂

Since they are of your face, the photographer cannot legally sell/ give them to anybody else without your written permission!

I’m a photographer, and this situation comes up all the time since people see everything differently 🙂

Best solution: talk to your photographer BEFORE the wedding and ask this question!


Good topic!
