That is really weird! Maybe she has only edited a few and has never heard of teaser pix?

wow, that’s absolutely ridiculous. I would be LIVID. i think it’s *totally* innappropraite that she put/use your photos for advertising or on her website BEFORE you’ve even had a chance to see them! i would write a well-worded email, or better yet, CALL HER and explain why this is upsetting to you. they may be her photos to use for her business, too, but she was hired for YOUR wedding!

I’m sorry about this.  I do hope you hear back from her promptly and that you get your pictures ASAP!

You are SO patient and polite!! I would have stomped right down to her studio, picked up her favorite camera, and told her in the sweetest way that if I didn’t get my photos on CD immediately we would run an experiment to see if cameras can fly….

My photographer did this. Had photos of us up IN HER OFFICE in frames, but you know, I hadn’t received any of my photos yet. Ticked me off to no end. It took me 6 months to get mine =(

What is the timeline that was in your contract? Mine is 3 weeks for the online gallery, and 3 months for everything else. I think my contract also says the the photographer has the rights to the pictures and is allowed to use them for whatever he wants. I’d double check your contract and not get all bent out of shape if the photographer is not breaking the contract.

But I can totally see how this is annoying for you.

Can you CALL her? Some people are horrible about returning emails (i.e. our caterer) but quite plesant and helpful on the phone.

Also I could see that photogs would have a few pics done early on in the process because they’re going to pull them off their camera and start editing. So it wouldn’t be a big deal for them to upload a good one to a website.

That doesn’t mean she’s done with ALL of them. It takes a long time to process raw images and then weed thru them all and then photoshop them. She’s not going to give you part of them, and is probably waiting to finish all of them first. Unless she’s in breech of her contract time frame I’d say don’t be pushy with her, she’s also shooting and editing other weddings along with yours.
