If the couple is not model quality pretty, does it matter?

lol, someone actually said it!
But seriously, to paraphrase some other replies, copyright law and model release are two very different things. First of all, nobody's images are inherently protected by copyright (here in the US), contrary to popular belief. If you don't register them, they're not copyrighted; it's not automatic. Look it up. Secondly, if you display images of people in a public place (ie, the web) without getting their permission first, that's illegal, especially in any commercial venture (which wedding photography certainly is). The exception is photojournalism so if you're planning on selling your images to the news industry you should be fine. All that being said, I haven't had any wedding guests who've complained about their images being used in my online galleries. My contract does have a model release clause but only 3% of my clients have ever crossed that part out.
If they don't want their images made public, don't make them public. You can still use them in your private portfolio (when you meet with prospective clients one-on-one).

Last summer I had a pretty similar request from B&G. After explaining them the importance of these images for developing my photography business, they agreed on that and we amended a contract so I have a complete freedom to post any of their photos on my personal website without notifying them but limited right to post images on social network sites, i.e. I can only post the photos where B&G's faces cannot be recognised. I personally think it is a win-win situation

I think you have to explain that the images are your copyright as a photographer.

And what she is asking is that you hand over that copyright to her.

Explain that that can be done, but it costs more in the industry.

What people normally pay for is "licensing" of the images.


But if you are happy to take the money and write off any further use - then ignore the above...
