Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. A day that you will want to go back and re-live all the unforgettable moments. You can’t redo your wedding, that is why making sure you preserve your special day in wedding photography is so important. Make the most of your wedding photos with these wedding keepsake and photo gift ideas.
First thing is first, to reproduce, create fun Pinterest DIY projects, or order canvas; you will need to own the rights to your wedding photographs. This means you will need to purchase the Digital Copyrights to your images from the wedding photographer.
All photographers charge an additional cost to be able to “own” your images. Some photographers will charge this fee afterwards, and some will include it in the photography package. This is a standard practice in the wedding industry.
What are Digital Copyrights?
The digital copyrights are the digital file of your photos. This will allow you to upload, share them on social media, and duplicate without having to contact your photographer to get enlargements, duplicate, or specialty prints. You can do almost anything with your photos, once you own them.

Best Paper for Wedding Photos
The paper you choose to print your wedding photos on is very important. Do you want a modern glossy look, a vintage look with linen, or rustic-chic leather quality to your prints? These are all things to keep in mind when you are choosing the paper to print your photos on.
- Matte prints (for a smooth, slight-glare look; lower-contrast with enhanced texture)
- Leather prints (for a shiny and sharp look/deep contrast; rugged, leather-like textures)
- Fine-art/linen prints (crisp prints with soft finish, no-glare, and subtle shadings)
- Metallic prints (high gloss, luminescent; durable and long-lasting)
Sometimes its best to see the print finishes in person, but if you can’t; we have a video to show the textures, contrast, and reflective qualities.
