When you are looking for a photographer for your wedding, or even just for a family photo, do you want your photographer to give you physical prints or digital copies?
First. I know people, and I would bet you do to, who have been married for years but have never printed a photo from their wedding to hang on their wall. They have the thumb-drive with their photos on their desk, somewhere, and had all good intentions to print something. They just never did. You spent the money on the photographer, it's such a shame to never display the work you paid for.
This is why every wedding package I have has a book and print credits. Some other photographers will always add prints to their packages. When looking for a photographer, consider hiring one that will offer you prints. Not all photo labs are created equal and a professional photographer will know where some of the better labs are.
