FH and I had our e-pictures done in September (the weekend before our photographers got married/went on their [we have 2 photogs] honeymoon, we understood it was going to take time, and that was fine!).. Anyway, I ‘like’ our photographer on facebook, and stalk their page sometimes to see if there are any neat poses I might want to try at our wedding…
Here’s why I am hurt
We are the ONLY couple that I know of who wasn’t posted both on their facebook AND on their website.. I am tempted to email them and ask why, but I don’t want to sound…pushy/bitchy.. Am I over evaluating this?

I remember seeing your e-pics a while back and they’re nice! So I doubt it has anything to do with you or your pictures, probably just that your photographer does tons of shoots and can’t add all of them. Most likely there are at least several other couples out there that aren’t on there either.

@Pinkmoon: I think the problem is is that they post EVERY shoot they do on facebook with the date that they did it (sometimes 2-3 in a day), there were even others from our date… I loved our pictures, and we got TONS compared to what I have seen others wind up with (seems the average is like 50-70, we got 125) so I don’t understand why they wouldn’t post them… Gosh I sound like a cry baby… I just would love for others to see their work.. Our shoot is significantly different from the others that I have seen (IE: Railroad tracks, open fields), since ours was done in historical places with monuments it added a different element.. *sigh* oh well

If its bothering you enough then ask.

I’m the queen of anxiety and working myself into a frenzy over little things – so this would drive me CRAZY! I would assume as PP said that you’re not the only couple that hasn’t been posted, and try your best to move on. In the grand scheme of things, this isn’t a big deal! 🙂

@hiroshymatetrastar: I’m sure it’s nothing personal. My guess is that there are other couples they haven’t put up that you are unaware of. Also, you never know what their reasons are. It could be anything from they haven’t gotten to it yet to they are saving them for sometime when things are slow to have an update for their page. It really isn’t anything personal against you.

How do you know they post *every* single shoot they do? Do you know their schedule? I’d just try to let it go, you have pictures you love, what’s it matter if she puts them up?

@pinkshoes: no, i don’t know their schedule, but they do post about all their planned shots.. honestly it bugs me cause I’m a worrier… concerned we made a bad impression

It’s okay, I felt the same way!

I do think you are overthinking it. It’s possible since they got married shortly after yours they just never got around to it.
I have one friend who is a wedding photographer and she is in demand now and she no longer is able to post all of them online esp if it’s wedding season. I would let it go. Unless it’s part of your package to have it posted on facebook.

I do think this is a little silly, but if it was really bugging you, the furthest I would go is emailing them and saying “Thanks again for the photos – they are so beautiful! I can’t wait for them to be on Facebook so I can share with all my friends and family. I want to link to them from your page so you get credit and hopefully referrals :)”
I wouldn’t do that, but I think it would be an okay way to approach it. If they really meant to leave you off, they’ll ignore it. If it was an accident, they’ll go “Oh gosh, sorry, we forgot!” and add them.
Assuming they are photographing your wedding as well, so I wouldn’t get too pushy or bent out of shape about it.

Maybe you photographer is going for a specific kind of look or artistic style, and your personal shoot didn’t match theirs?

We do not have time to publish everything we shoot, plus some times we hang onto things so we have good stuff to post when things quiet down in the winter or if we plan to try to have it published in a magazine/blog. I really would not take it personal.

I would ask them if the could post some pics so your FB friends can see. Unless its just an issue of WHY they havent done it, not that they havent done it.
If its bothering you why they didnt post, honestly they probably forgot. Seriously.
