You made me think about my own family situation. My dad has been dating someone (not longterm) and I don’t want her in any family wedding photos. Can your photographer maybe do some airbrushing?

When my BIL’s first baby was born and we went to meet the baby the day of the birth I’d only been dating DH for 7 months so I made sure I was in as few group photos as possible in case this thing happens.. it’s just awkward :/

I don’t know what to say other than with photography, these moments are cast forever.. your mum’s ex shouldn’t have been there if he knew their relationship was ending. I’m so sorry.

This is also a reason I didn’t give +1s to our guests.

At the (few) weddings that I’ve been to where this might be an issue, it seemed that either the family requested a few “family only” group shots, and a few photos with SOs, or the SOs just knew to step out of some of the pictures. No one got their feelings hurt, because who expects to be in every single picture in someone else’s wedding? and yet at least there are a few photos that the SOs are not in, just in case.
