    Because they’re AWs! 🙂 That’s about the best answer I can give…I wouldn’t care one bit if we were blogged or not, either.

    Our photographer blogs every wedding they shoot, but we specifically asked not to be.  We actually met with two photographers that refused to work with us with that request, which I thought was really strange.  I guess they were more concerned with building their online profile than actually making money from us.

    I think there’s a feeling that photographers blog their best weddings with the prettiest people, so some people get a little insecure when they’re passed over.

    @Statutory Grape: what’s an AW?

    ETA – nevermind, figured it out.  Attention rhymes with floor.

    We actually had the opposite issue.  We had agreed that the photographer could use our shots for his online portfolio.  However, one of the ones he used was NotFroofy’s least favorite shot of herself.

    Life goes on, though.  We’d never dream of complaining.

    I would have cared. Our photographer had 10 shots blogged within a few weeks – it was a great way for me to share some photos with co-workers and others who weren’t there on the day. We waited a few months to get the rest of the photos, so it would have been a very long wait without the blog!

    I wouldn’t care either way. I do think it is very melodramatic to get that upset though.

    They just want more attention. I’d think it was “cool” if I was blogged but I wouldn’t be upset if I wasn’t. Anyways you can just upload them yourself to whatever website.

    I would’ve cared because I found his blog at the start of my wedding planning, found my venue and most my other vendors from there, and being on that blog one day was one of the things I was most excited about. I was still disappointed he picked some of the pics I looked worse in to blog and it wasn’t the way I dreamt it would be, but I would’ve felt even worse if he didn’t blog us at all. I would’ve felt like our wedding wasn’t good enough to be there. Call me vain! I guess I kinda idolize our photographer and really cared about what he thought of us and our wedding.

    I wouldn’t be angry, but I’d be disappointed. I figure the photographer picks the best photos to blog. If they don’t pick any of mine then I would think our photographer didn’t like how ours turned out. Admittedly, our photog didn’t pick my favorite e-pics to blog, so I don’t know what that says.

    I would care only if I was counting on the blog as my way of getting some of my wedding images back early…

    I don’t think I would really care, in a way I would rather be able to just have a private online album with a password so people we wanted to see them could but not the whole world! You never know where your picture from the internet will end up!

    I was excited when our photog blogged our e-shoot, and when she mentioned that she blogs all of her wedding shoots at this point (she’s still getting into the business), but no, I wouldn’t be MAD if she didn’t blog us.

    I actually wouldn’t want to be blogged. My Fiance wouldn’t be too thrilled about having his image plastered all over the internet. He doesn’t even have FB.
