Why are you concerned about whether you are in her photos or not? Is she doing something with the photos that’s a violation of your privacy or otherwise a problem for your reputation?

I would think that if you’ve moved on from the friendship, it’s time to do just that and move on. Unless she’s somehow using them in an inappropriate manner, I don’t see a reason to worry about how she chooses to remember her wedding day.

Why does it bother you so much that you are in them?

I can understand if the bride suggests this considering they are her photos but I don’t see how it affects you being in HER photos.

Just wondering.

Um, this is weird. Are you saying that you want to be photoshopped out of her pics? Regardless of what you want, they’re her pictures and I doubt she’d want to ruin them anymore by trying to edit you out. You were a part of the day whether you want to be or not and there are pictures to prove it. If she decides to have you removed then that’s up to her but you have no control over it.

My opinion-whatever your issues are…just let them be. I would say that you should just leave the bride alone. Why would you expect her to change her wedding photos that she likely paid big money for? Not to mention, why would she want to pretend things were a certain way and they weren’t? She would want to keep you in the pictures because you were in the wedding. The fact that you didn’t back out when you didn’t want to be there is not the bride’s problem. I would leave her alone and let her do what she wants with her photos.

@UpstateCait:  I agree

 

 

I also feel like there’s no way a person can be removed from photos w/o really ruining them, especially if it’s a big group of people.  I think you’re out of luck.

I’m sorry, it sounds like this situation sucked for you. I think your best bet to is forget about the pictures and just walk away.

I don’t understand why this is a big deal to you. Who cares if you are in a picture? You don’t have to look at them.

@alphagam84:  I agree. You can’t undo being in the wedding party just by photoshopping yourself out. I would just let it be and forget about it.

I would think it would be some revenge to remain in the pictures. She would have to see your face every time she looked at her wedding pictures. She would have to remember that someone was there that didn’t support her, and that she allowed that to happen. And she’d probably have to explain to her children who that stranger was and rehash all of those emotions.

You could have decided to back out, but you didn’t, so now you have to live with the fact that you’re in her wedding photos. They are HER photos, and you don’t really have any right to tell her what to do with them, even though your situation might have sucked. there’s not much that can be done about it. All you can do is move on.

@Leanna11 I really think you are putting yourself through more stress by doing this photoshopping business with the photographer, and then contacting the bride, than if you’d just let it go.

If it makes you feel better, to future generations you’ll just be a face in an album next to Grandma’s. That wouldn’t change whether you were friends or not.
