@MissFireFlower:  If he blogs once a week and already did the May 4th one, he probably just needed to pick one and did the first one first. I wouldn’t read too much into it!

He probably just picks photos that show a variety of what he can do.  Maybe he’s already posted pictures from weddings that had similar features to yours, or similar shots.  Or maybe he doesn’t post without the couple reviewing and approving it first and you haven’t seen yours yet.  Perhaps the other weddings had less photos so he finished them sooner and the couples already approved everything.

There could be so many factors.  Maybe a recent wedding he blogged had similar elements to yours and he wanted variety.  Maybe he picked the first wedding for that week.  It may be that he wanted to show different venues.  Or it could be the top of the digital stack and he thought ‘this one’ instead of ‘that one.’

From your teaser your wedding appeared absolutely lovely!  Don’t stress over this.

@MissFireFlower:  FBIL’s wedding photographer blogged theirs 10 months after their wedding and blogged lots of other things in between. maybe they’re just doing them out of order or are having a hard time picking their favorites!

Maybe he finished the May 10th wedding first.  Maybe he doesn’t like posting the blog before showing the pictures to the bride first.  When my ex who was a wedding photographer posted blogs he wouldn’t repeat venues (i.e. if he already had posted a blog from a venue, he wouldn’t post a second wedding from the same venue.)

Maybe your photog needed to showcase a different style of wedding than yours or perhaps has several of your style already.  It may be that the other one from your week was a friend.  It may be any one of dozens of reasons.

However, there is no reason to love your wedding any less, second guess yourself, or worry that your wedding was inferior or didn’t measure up in some way.  All it means is he didn’t use your wedding for promoting himself, it has nothing to do with you and doesn’t in any way diminish your day.

When you have your photos, make use of your new wedding cookware, invite some friends over, show them your photos and remind yourself of how amazing your day was!

There has been a lot of much-ago-about-nothing on the bee today.

Haha, I also thought it was a little weird that our engagement photographer seemed to blog about lots of photoshoots but not us. And my friend said hers posts tons of pictures on facebook but none of her.  So we can all form a club for people whose photographers didn’t like them enough to use their pictures but we still think our pictures came out great 🙂

I understand the disappointment, and I’m glad you can see you are being a bit silly. I’d be a little bummed too though! I’m sure your photos are lovely. Just keep looking forward to getting them. 🙂

Maybe they were so awesome they are holding back to submit to a blog like style me pretty Etc. they prefer that the photog doesn’t blog them first. You never know.

@MissFireFlower: know the main reason weddings aren’t blogged is because there is ‘not enough detail’ and honestly? I’m so sick sick sick of silly details! I bet you had a beautiful wedding! I hope you focused on the love and fun rather than typography and ombre 🙂
