    I would get some pro prints. These are your wedding pictures, after all, and you can definitely notice a difference between, say, Wal-Mart and websites like mpix.com. 🙂

    I voted, but I’m not sure that any category exactly matched my preference.

    To me, getting a package that included high res, PS-ed digital versions of all the prints was a big priority.  I emphasize PS-ed (not just automated colorbalancing).  I paid a substantial extra for that, and I think it’s worth it.  My photographer won’t touch up every single image, but those that he does I would like to keep the touched up version.

    For myself, I probably wouldn’t ever print them at Wal-Mart or similar drugstore quality, but possibly another lab that I trust which may be cheaper than the photographer’s recommendation.  I will also still order some of the nicer prints (esp. enlargements) that I want from the photographer’s lab/studio, since esp. for the enlargements I would expect them to take care to make sure the printing comes out exactly right.

    By The Way, I’m also ordering a pro-album, so I will probably want fewer prints overall than someone who doesn’t get one.
