while the "pro" keeps and uses your own images to advertise his business, because obviously he will retain all rights despite the fact that you already paid for the images representing your family.

Is that a bad deal or what?

Actually I feel it's wrong to use client images for my marketing purpose unless they agree for it!

Wedding photography isn't sold - it's licensed to you.

Consider a physical object, if I buy a ferrari - I buy an instance of an object that is made to a design. I don't own that design of that model of ferrari forever.

EDIT : There are a lot of bargain basement photographers in this thread who are devaluing the craft. These are the people who make an increasing number of couples just "let their guests take the shots" with smartphones.

There is a lot of expensive gear, training, pressure, organisation and editing time goes into shooting a wedding - the price is high for a reason. Failure is not an option.
