i think you need some marital conseling... way to go.ticking off a vendor prior to your wedding day.
My internet keeps screwing up so this is the third time I've typed a response, but anyway. Although I think I would also be upset about the similarities in the photos, it's not like anyone who cares is going to see both. Do you know those people? Do you have mutual friends? Probably not. You're not going to look at your beautiful photos forever and think about the similarities. I also noticed that the blog post says the photos were taken back in the summer. It's possible that yours was the second shoot at that location and with those poses, not that he copied your shoot with them. I can't remember how you worded your OP. Andrea is far from the rudest poster on TK. I bet she wouldn't even make the top 50. Have you lurked on a lot of the national boards? There are some doozies. And she has a point, vendor bashing has gotten girls in trouble, it's not just knot lore. I'm not agreeing with the way she said it, I'm just saying that in there somewhere, there was a legitimate point. If I were you I'd ask the photographer why he chose to blog their photos and not yours. Since they're so similar in composition it would make me wonder. Have you read this blog post (clicky) that was circulating a few months ago? That part would bother me more than anything, I think. I don't post that to make you more angry, just to see if you've considered anything like that.Posted by pirategal03
In Response to I'm replying to the original post. : My reason for saying that Andrea was rude was not because of her post under mine, but because she was the first one to say she didn't like them when I posted them on here. She could have just kept it to herself that she didn't like my pictures. I don't like everyone's pictures I see posted on the knot, but im not going to comment and tell them I don't like their pictures...who does that?Posted by jmp0930
hello! i have not been on here in a little while but from what others have said - i can gather what happened.
i would not at all be upset that our photos were similar. the only way i would be the least bit upset is if a close friend had the same photographer and did the exact same location and poses...and even then i probably would not care. afterall, imitation is the best form of flattery!
i own an interior design and remodeling firm and i cannot tell you how many times i have use the same countertop, paint color, or cabinetry finish! they all go on my website that i know my past clients frequent...but do they care? no, bc each space (and each person) is different and add their own personality and taste.i understand that you were disappointed to see this - but as mary said...you don't have the same group of viewers or run in the same circles. and i don't understand photographers who pick and choose who they blog - that is odd to me...but for some reason he chose them. i saw your pics way back and they were fabulous! ones you can frame and keep forever! i would be thankful for that and not worry that someone else has similar poses and maybe copied your ideas...just means someone loved them enough to duplicate...and that, in itself, is a huge compliment!
it's funny that the whole post is on originality. i looked at your venue when looking for mine and one thing i noticed in all work from that venue is that they all looked the same. basically that told me that the venue was the same for each wedding they did there. so yes don't expect your wedding day photography to be much different than all the books they have to show you. at the end of the day it's still a checkered floor.Posted by andrea01012009
