Can I make copies of the CD or DVD of my wedding images?
Whether or not you can make copies of the CD or DVD containing your wedding photos depends on your agreement with your photographer. Some wedding photographers have a policy against duplication, and price your wedding photography package based on providing a set number of disc. If you want additional copies of the discs, you would pay for them at the studio's standard rate. Some wedding photographers will encourage you to make many copies of the disc. In either case, it’s important to remember that no one really knows with certainty how long optical media will last, and that some discs are easily scratched and thus rendered unusable. In addition, methods of storing data may change in the future. If your wedding photographer does not allow you to copy your disc, you may want to purchase an additional set or two to store in a separate, safe, location.
