On the weekend I shot a small wedding. The bride was a childhood friend, although we had lost touch over the past 15 years or so. We connected through Facebook once again. She saw my photography work, and contacted me about her wedding. She was looking for someone to give coverage for the ceremony and formals afterwards. The brides sister (also MOH) is an artist who has been pursuing photography recently. The bride was wanting her sister to do the rest of the photos, as she obviously could not cover the ceremony and formals. On the wedding day, everythign seemed to go along smoothly. There was a lot of waiting for family to get organized (I did have the help of a groomsman) but we stayed on time throughout. During the day, however, I felt like I had a shadow. And it wasn't the brides sister, but the sisters boyfriend. He had the sisters camera and seemed to be everywhere that I was. Tonight I posted a couple of teaser pics on Facebook. The bride just so happened to log on while I was on, so I sent her a link to the album. She responded with a comment "Im looking at hers, but im way more excited to see yours!" I have no idea what that meant, other than the fact that her sister was also online, and maybe she sent the message accidentally to me? I brushed it off - no need in overreacting to something when I didn't even understand it. Then the kicker. I go online later, and wow - there are my pics! About 40 of them! I mean, the crop is a bit different, and the processing is different...but there they are. The sister has posted her pics. The ones the boyfriend took. And they are all the poses I did. The angles are two feet to the left of everything I worked so hard to do. The bride has RAVED about how awesome the photos are. She didn't even comment once on the ones I posted. ouch.
