oh geez, so a person who you and your FH really have no contact with can’t be friends with your ex? FH is being cray-cray! just ignore it. you said Jason is professional, so I highly doubt he’ll mention your ex at all… if you mention that your FH is sensitive about it, I think it might end up just being an elephant in the room. sorry that this is happening NOW!

I would just let it blow over and wait to Fiance meets him. Jasons froendship with your ex should not effect his work and hopefully you Fiance sees that. But I would double check with Fiance to make sure he is ok, I wouldnt want him to be super uncomfortable during the wedding.

I would not contact the photographer and tell him your Fiance is sensitive about this.  I think it’s ridiculous that Fiance is upset your photog (not YOU) is friends with your ex.  You’re getting married.  Maybe he needs a little perspective b/c life’s got bigger challenges than this.

i would just let it go – ex’s are a sensetive topic but he is being unreasonable – its not like your ex is going to show up at the wedding with him. If Jason is as professional as you say im sure he wouldnt even metnion said ex on the day of your wedding, i wouldnt bring it up.

hope your Fiance knows how great of a deal you guys are getting! nothing like friendors! i used a friend for my wedding and it was the best thing i could have done, we got her for a steal and she gave us all the rights to our pictures which is HUGE.

try not to stress and enjoy this last week of being engaged! Congrats to both of you! you are so close!

I’m sure he was talking about “canceling” him in the heat of the moment and everything, but it’s definitely an overreaction on his part and he should be the one feeling bad.

If he does address it in a negative way again, I would say he is being childish and needs to move on because you have, years ago. I would tell him you are going to be man and wife and to put aside his ego and realize this is saving you tons of money.

I don’t want to add something else to your to-do list before the wedding but it maybe a good idea for you, your Fiance and Jason to meet up beforehand just so they can get comfortable with each other.

I really do think it too short notice to cancel and find a replacement but I think your Fiance would appreciate knowing that your photog is a great, professional friend of yours and will do a great job. And it wouldn’t hurt for Jason to stress that he wouldn’t be sharing your photos with anyone else (especially your EX).

OMG, your Fiance is being rediculous.  It was YEARS ago and its not like your EX is the second shooter… (that’s where I thought the story was going).
