Bridal Portraits: Who gets to keep them?

by epi on July 18, 2012

Q: I recently was married and both my parents and my husband want the bridal portrait of me. Who is it supposed to go to? My husband and I don’t really have the money right now to buy another. Thank you.

A: It is customary for the bridal portrait to be a part of the photographs for the couple. As such, if either set of parents would like a copy, they should offer to pay the additional cost. Of course, this does not mean that the couple can’t offer to contribute in part or in full.

What kind of parents would want to take the only bridal portrait a couple can afford from them? Stand your ground and keep your own photo. Your parents can purchase their own.
