    @BotticelliLove:  I think you’ll be okay if you just ask your photographer if she’s okay with you posting those photos, if you add a link to her website/blog. Alternatively, if she’d like to add her watermark, I say sure do that! 🙂  It’s great that you’re thinking of your photographer before you post!

    Link to their website. If it hits pinterest from your wedding site its still going to link to where you will have info about your photographer on your site. Dont worry. 🙂

     

    If you have usage rights its on the photographer if they didnt watermark the net use images.

    I would ask her. Also, if she blogged them, try sharing them from her site so at least it will go back to her. As someone who just had a bunch of my photos ripped off by a wannabe photog trying to pass them off as her own, we ALWAYS make sure clients post only watermarked images. PLUS, if you love your photog the BEST thing you can do for her is spread her work and good reviews of her. 99% of my business comes from referrals. So you would really be helping her a lot.

    Just ask her.  We used to do watermarked images, but we got tired of trying to explain to everyone why it was important to have the watermarked ones online versus non -etc.  We never liked the logo on the images in the first place.  The important part is that you’re not posting full resolution images online, and that you are linking back to the photographer’s website.  If the images are going up on Facebook, link to the website and tag the photographer’s business page or personal page.
