Usually when photogs take pictures for you at the wedding, they give you a disclosure document of some sort that lets you print your own pictures as well as give you full rights to your pictures. This is common. I wouldn’t recommend having them print your pictures because they tend to jack up the prices of the individual photos and you can print the pictures out yourself for a lot cheaper. Shutterfly, vistaprint, etc.

I only considered photographers that gave me a disk with all of my photos on it. If they didn’t offer it, then I moved on! It’s been my experience that it costs A LOT to get reprints from the photographers.

I moved on as well if they didn’t give me the rights to my photos.  I wasn’t going to have to contact them every time I wanted pictures for the next 50 years and neither was I going to pay their prices.  There were plenty of photogs who gave us the rights.  I think only 1 out of 10 that we looked at didn’t offer that.
