I would be beyond livid…Regardless of how “sensitive” your mom is, she is still a grown woman none the less. She should deal with the ramifications as a adult. How could a mother do that to her daughter?! Photographers and their art is very expensive, especially when a wedding is tied into it, I would honestly tell her bluntly that while you enjoyed the sentimental thought of the doll being in a photo with your dress, that is where the doll photos should have ended. There was no need to have the doll photobomb ANY of the shots. Period. If she cries and pitches a fit, so be it. I would also get her to pay the extra cost (if any) to have the photos edited and that’s IF your photog will even take on the extra work. You may have to find someone else to edit them.

@katehh08: If this was my mum you bet that I would be calling her up and giving her a piece of my mind. If your mom is such a delicate little emotional flower who can’t take any kind of criticism then perhaps she should consider other’s feelings before she does something so utterly childish and stupid. She did something that was bad and you have a right to yell at her. Her inability to deal with valid complaints is not your problem.
This. If they can’t be edited in a way that satisfies you I’d ask her to pay for an additional photo shoot of your Fiance to replace the pictures you would have had.

I don’t think she could have possibly bombed all photos. I’m sure there are fabulous non-doll ones too!!!
Worst case scenario you can have a photo shoot wearing your wedding clothes (engagement photo style) preferrably paid for by you mother.

Thats obnoxious. Your mom doesn’t have the right to both do obnoxious things AND be “too sensitive” to be called out on it. That’s just life. Sucks for her, she shouldn’t be rude if she’s so delicate. I say call her out and let her get upset. I’d also be asking her to pay if there was an extra fee to retouch the doll out.
Photobombing normal photos = hilarious
Photobombing incredibly expensive professional wedding photos = rude & obnoxious.

@nearlymarriedlass: I have the legal, purchased version of Photoshop. Not sure about any other versions. I need it for my work but I’ll admit it was really expensive. The version I own was close to $1,000.

@PizzutiStudios: This is true and a very good point. You can’t just “download” Photoshop and expect it to be user-friendly; it’s not by any stretch. I think there are some good free downloadable photo editing programs available. I’ve been using Photoshop for over five years so I’m “fairly” good at it, but by no means a pro. I use it for work – marketing, publications, etc.

That sucks I’d be pissed if it was in my professional pictures. I hope they can photoshop it out for you!!

Thats beyond weird its down right creepy. I’m sorry you went through this. Your mother should be happy and supportive of you not doing things like this.

I’m so sorry that this happened to you. I too have parents with ‘issues’ and am worried about how things will go on the day of our wedding.
That being said, I have some photo editting skills (PS & Lightroom) and would totally be willing to edit a few photos that are important to you if the doll made it in…
Feel free to PM me..

holy cow… wait, the one holding the doll is actually your mother? i thought it was other relatives the ones who did that…
i would break the doll and toss it, and also tell your mom, she can’t do whatever she wants and facing no consequences, she’s not a child.

My mother just pointed out that the doll is wearing a dress that is very similar to your mom’s dress. I wonder if that was purposeful?
