Your pictures are beautiful. My sister-in-law will be taking my wedding photos for free and I know she’s competent and can do nice editing. And frankly, we can’t afford even a couple hundred dollars for a photographer…however, I would never insinuate that someone was “crazy” for spending money on a professional photographer…it’s your wedding, your budget, and you did what you wanted. I would have such a hard time not telling her to shut up. I would just say that the next time she comments on something negatively just say, “We did what worked for us” and move on.

Pictures are beautiful, they seemed to get every special detail.
Kind of off topic, but I asked my Fiance last week for the rose necklace one of the bridesmaids is wearing!

@reinab505 – I got her that necklace as part of her bridesmaid gift! Overstock.com, it’s sterling silver and was under $15!

@karatechick27 – I know friends who have great cameras and a wonderful eye for photography – in fact, my aunt (and bridesmaid) did our engagement photos for free. She’s not a professional, but she has a knack for it, and they came out great! The thing that irritated me with my SIL’s comment about what we paid is that she HAS NO IDEA what we paid, and frankly, our package was nearly half the price of other photographers in the area!

Wow she is a bitter Betty! I’m glad you sent her that fb message. If she posts anything else regarding the photos that is negative you then need to make it so she cannot comment on anything, because at that point she is just being more disrespectful to you and the wonderful photographers! Your photos are amazing and you look gorgeous!
Let us know what she says back!

It may be a little immature but I would get your friends to comment on your album saying what AMAZING photos you have and oh my, what an AMAZING photographer you had gotten for your wedding and how LUCKY you were to get him! Add me, I’ll do it! bahaha

@MissBabeski, hahaha some of them already have, just to mess with her – one of my friends is actually an editor for a magazine, and based on what she saw from our wedding photos, she booked our photographer to do the COVER SHOOT for their next edition! So she went and posted that all over about how the photos were SO GOOD that she just HAD to book her, that she was so talented, lol.
My SIL just responded to my message… all she said was “I’m feeling okay.” Looks like I shut her up! 🙂

My first reaction was what a b****, but after reading your additional post, I feel really, really sad for her. I know how I felt after the flowers were the wrong color at my wedding, but everything else was perfect. But I didn’t sleep well for 3 days and I still get pangs of anger when I see the untouched up photos. Can you imagine how she must feel about her wedding fat and plain and nothing like she had imagined and dreamed about? Wow, how can you fell anything but sympathy for her?
Now don’t get me wrong, what she wrote was mean and I have a feeling she is rather bitter about everything in her life and lashes out. But maybe it’ll help you to see that she is in real pain (masked as jealousy) and that this is the only way she knows how to react.

The photos were fabulous! I can’t believe you still let that woman talk to you, she’s such a drag!
