No longer are wedding photographs restricted to hard-backed albums. Instead, modern technology has brought with it an abundance of methods for viewing and displaying the shots from your big day.
Let's take a look at the most common alternative presentation options offered.
Many photographers will now offer the happy couple the chance to view their Wedding snaps on CD-ROM. Not as convenient as a DVD format (to view the images, you will normally need to be sat in front of a PC) the CD-ROM can provide a good fall-back. If the worst should happen, and your original snaps are ruined by a flood or fire for example, then the CD-ROM will provide an invaluable back-up (assuming that you have made a copy of the disk and sent one to your parents/friends of course) ensuring not all is lost.
A lot of photographers will supply the images with a hidden watermark to prevent re-prints (this is especially common if the photographer retains the rights to the images) so be aware that a getting CD does not mean that you can rope in your local photo lab to blow up shot after shot and save you money! That said, you can understand things from the photogrpahers point of view. Even with the potential watermark pitfall, CDís can be a wonderful tool that allows couples to select which prints they want in their album and allows them to browse through all the photographs at their own pace.
