Why do you "feel sorry" for the bride?? :confused: I'm sure she loves seeing the early photos up from her family and friends. I was at a wedding recently and photos of the bride were on facebook before the ceremony even finished. Who cares? You're being hired for quality, not speed/social media PR.

As PP have said, the snapshots will just make yours look much better when they're released.

I have 10 sneak peek images up on FB within 2 hours of getting home after finishing the wedding and a further 10 images up a day or so later... Having the couple tagged in other people's albums is a massive bonus as it sets my pictures apart even more from the snap shots taken by the guests.

this is smart :) also makes people want to tag themselves in your pictures..more advertising for you :D

Why would you feel bad? Especially if your photos are that much better than the ones being posted on Facebook. She didn't pay any of them besides you, so she doesn't expect their photos to be great like she does yours.

I'm with most of the others. I always have a sneak peek up on FB withing 24 hours. If I find that my sneak peek photos aren't any better than the uncle Bob photos already there, I need to re-think my vocation...

we all deal with it, the only thing that gets me is when others flashes go off or that red beam comes out and shows on her face as they are walking down the aisle. If it's a long aisle, i'll literally snap 30 or so pics of her coming down the aisle JUST TO MAKE SURE I get some great ones.

The way I see it, you got paid to shoot the wedding. Take care of business and to heck with the others.

Is there such a thing as "Thread Starters Remorse"?

Ditto

as soon as get them uploaded i will pick out 10 and put them on FB for the clients.they are only proofs cropped and color corrected...takes me 10 minutes. We Always do this and the girls are appreciative. We post them on our facebook page as " They Did It !!! " The response has been remarkable

I would never sweat what friends post on FB..most are crappy iphone shots.

I'm with others here that say "just ignore it." The sweet part is putting those snapshots to shame when your money shots make it to her Facebook page. Should get you some more paid shots!

I recently was a guest at a wedding. During ceremony from my seat I took few pics with 7d and 70-200 IS 2.8. Than there was another guest standing next to B&G with rebel and kit lens shooting with a pop up flash all the time.
Thing is - everybody got a camera - you may be able to subdue 90% of guest playing a pro - there still be one or two left.
So - just learn to ignore it.
