Oh my gosh, is that the bee who altered the dress so much that it cost her so much money but it was too late to go buy another dress? I definitely recognize her face!

@boogiewoogies:  lol right?? She looks amazing in that dress! Before AND after alterations. But, I doubt they really thought she was a model.. I mean, they’re clearly pix taken with an iphone lol

Hi @DelilahDiamond:  Looks like my detective work paid off the same way as other Bees… in so much as I was able to track down the photos via GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH back to WBee, and this post = http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/augusta-jones-jessie#axzz2ksjuayxC

I am not 100% sure tho how this will be able to be resolved by the Bee in the photos:

1- You mention Pinterest… if you are famiiar with the WBee website ANY IMAGE that is posted here can easily be put up onto Pinterest by anyone … just hover over a Photo and the Pinterest link will come up (this is something WBee implemented many months ago… infact it is pretty much encouraged)

2- I get that DHGate doesn’t own the image… and therefore is “misrepresenting” the Dress that they have listed (which BTW is a Size 18W, so clearly not the one that this Bee in the Photo is wearing)

DHGate is an Off-shore (China) Bridal Knock-off company… they are not going to give one hoot about US Copyright Laws or Personal Privacy.  AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT THE OP IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO ABOUT IT

Plain & simple

So there you have it Ladies…

When you put your Photos into cyberspace they become property of the Public Domain… you lose all control

The best you can hope for, is that you crop them in such a way (or shade them) to remove your face so they are rendered useless to such pirates.

Lesson learned.
