The problem is that some wedding photographers don't actually give you access to your own photos - and they'll make sure that you don't even own the rights to them!
So, when you're choosing a wedding photographer, make sure that a full set of high resolution images are included in the package - not just a handful of prints.
The photographer may give you a CD of the images 'for selection purposes' but the images will be low resolution (poor quality) and will be branded with the photographers gaudy logo.
Also, be careful of photographers that claim they own the rights to the photos or your event - rather than you owning it - even though you paid them to be there! Not only does it mean that you won't get access to your photos, but it means the photographer can use them however he pleases, whether you like it or not.
Make sure you ask who will own the rights to the images, and make sure you don't sign anything giving the photographer rights to use the images on whatever website, brochure or wherever else he wants.
