Yes, I would be a little bothered if I knew she typically blogged nearly all her work.  Have you seen any preview pics yet?  Have you been in touch w/ her since the wedding?  Is it possible she just got busy and missed it?

 

Edited to add – just checked out your recap with some of the pics – not getting blogged is definitely NOT a reflection of how “nice” your wedding was or your level of photogenic-ness – just wanted to say that in case you are being hard on yourself 🙂

I don’t know that I would feel slighted – my job is such that pictures of me on the internet just freak me out in general. I would be extremely curious – which sounds kind of like how you feel. I don’t think there would be any problem in sending her an email asking if “some of your friends could see some sneak peeks on the blog.” If she does a high volume of photography maybe they just got accidentally skipped or she wanted you to see them first! If you had a good working relationship my guess is that this was just a slip up – photographers want to show off their work!

How do you know she blogs everything? Realistically there could be a ton of reasons for not blogging a wedding…. probably the most likely being that she had a lot of work to blog and just didn’t feel like blogging all of it. 

The only reason that I care if our wedding gets blogged is because photos that go on the blog get fully edited while ones that don’t just get the basic edits. Since we’re not ordering an album, I’d kind of like to have a few pics fully edited.

I would be! But I’m a pretty sensitive person. Have you explicitly given permission for your photos to be posted? I know my boudoir photographer wouldn’t post anything until I had given her a definite go ahead. Could you ask her if she’s going to post a sneak peek or anything? Maybe she’s still editting? (Or ignore that if you already have your photos back..)

@penguinsaremyfriends: Ya that would strike me as odd too. I would create my own facebook album and tag her in every single one of the photos 😉

Normally I wouldn’t care, but our photog specifically said that in X number of weeks weddings are blogged in the processing timeline they gave us. If our wedding doesn’t show up I will be upset because it sounds like they blog everyones. Had they not put that in their timeline I wouldn’t even had second guessed our wedding not being on their site.

I would be hurt, maybe not offended.  Does she tend to blog relatively soon after the event?? My wedding photographer didn’t post a sneak peek or blog on her website for many months after our wedding.

September and October are my photog’s busiest months, by far. It could just be that she had SO many weddings that she physically could not blog them all. I would wonder, but wouldn’t be insulted.

@penguinsaremyfriends: The same thing appears to be happening to us. We got our photos (not the prints but they are processed and password protected on their website) and they have yet to post them on facebook or their blog. They do have a blog entry saying they are busy but to check facebook for recent work…our wedding is missing from the bunch on facebook. I also could care less, but because they said that they post an entry I’m just wondering why not ours? Oh well…more important things in life and all that matters is that our guests and us loved our wedding.

I would probably be hurt too, but I have a lot of insecurities regarding me and photography. Is it unreasonable that if that happened to me, I’d think it was because I wasn’t a photogenic-enough bride?

Probably unreasonable, but then again, I can’t tell you how many photogs we interviewed and everyone in their books was like a freakin’ model.

I might be a bit offended. I guess it would really depend.

I know I was a little offended that the shop where I bought my dress never blogged about me finding the perfect dress, when they sent out congratulations to other brides who did around the same time I found mine. I was also a little disappointed when I read that another bride mentioned in a review that she got a thank you note after she bought her dress at the same shop, because I didn’t get one.

But then again, I know that all situations are different. Vendor blogs are meant to drum up business. Maybe my situation doesn’t fit their real target market.  For me, my wedding is VERY personal for me, but it’s just another job to them, and I have to remember that.

She may just be really busy, or maybe she has a lot of photos of weddings that were similar to yours. Perhaps she’s trying to show a variety of photos (couples of various ages, unique venues, etc.) I don’t think it’s anything to even think twice about; if you love your pictures, that’s all that matters! 🙂
