The majority of our clients use professional photographers to capture their wedding day. We highly recommend using a professional photographer to capture one of the most special days to occur in your lifetime and a day that cannot be repeated. Read more about why we recommend professional wedding photographers – and Yes! it does make a huge difference using quality professional photography to the finished wedding album!
For The Coffee Table Book to design a wedding album for couples, you must either own full copyright, shared copyright with your photographer, or you must have permission/rights to use the photos for personal use.
Australian Copyright Laws in the case of domestic photography (weddings and portraits) automatically gives the copyright ownership to the client. However, most professional wedding photographers have their clients sign a contract stipulating the copyright is reassigned to the photographer but the client has either shared-copyright or permission/rights to use the images for personal use. Having shared-copyright or usage rights to use the images for personal use does give you permission to print your wedding photos in one of our wedding albums. We always recommend reading contracts and making sure you understand the terms and conditions before signing. If in doubt, please read your contract or check the terms with your photographer.
