I would oblige her request and post on all my photos Dont hire XYZ.  She was hard to get along with and rude to me and by guests.  Send her a link to each photo posted.

 Let her know that you give credit where credit is due.

Pretty sure you DO need to credit her [I know I do, according to my contract], but it sounds like you already did – you didn’t upload a new photo, you used one that was already uploaded and gave her credit already.

It might be in your contract.  I love my photographer so I credit her everywhere I possibly can.  When I uploaded pictures her credit was there automatically but I tagged her in the album as well so it shows wih every picture.  i have printing rights but she retains the copyright which is pretty standard.  She can’t use them in published promotion in a magazine etc without our permission but she can use them on her website and in her own promotional material at her will.

KatesTheWord:  I have posted my wedding pictures on FB, and I don’t think I credited the photographers. I guess in your situation, you should do it just to avoid any potential issues.

The way she handled it wouldn’t make me want to credit her. If you’re not obligated to, and you gave her credit on the album, I don’t see a problem. On another note, why are you still friends with her on facebook? Remove her and she won’t know what you do with your page.
