08:41 am - Wedding pictures
This is a response to neffie's comment that she's never seen my wedding pictures, but as it's a nice rant, and one I'm likely to want to read again, I'll post it separately.

I don't think our photographer gave us the option of having the images put onto CD, or if he did, for some reason it seemed like a bad idea. I don't know if my dad rejected it before I heard it or if I never heard it, but I didn't hear that it was an option until we already had the wedding album back at which point I said I wanted to keep it, because we were leaving town shortly and I wanted to bring it with us.

Our photographer, bless his heart, cut the negatives into strips of about four pictures each. He took many, many rolls of film. I don't remember the exact number now, but between 15 and 20. All cut into individual strips. Well, it was clear pretty quickly that I was going to want them digitally. So I went to my guy. Now, he he says his hair was white when I walked in, but I'm sure there was less of it when I walked out. Some weeks later, many dollars poorer, I walked out with a stack of CDs. Each of the rolls had its own.

From there, you would think it would be a simple matter to put them online, but I was concerned about webspace and didn't feel like culling them to pick the ones that should go up, so all I did was consolidation. I put all the pictures onto my computer (don't ask which one, I actually don't know. If it was the mac, that got lost in the GREAT DISK CRASH of July 2006) and created a single CD set of the pictures, which is what I worked from last night.

At the time, I was disk space considerate, so I didn't upload the pictures because SO FREAKING MANY. I can probably go through them and post some of my favourites.

Didn't you have a slide show of wedding pics you played at the Boston reception? Am I misremembering? I admit I was more than a bit tipsy by night's end (okay, I was fairly plastered) so I might be misremembering.

We actually played the wedding DVD iirc.

We got very lucky in that regard. The photos were all digital anyway, so the photographers just gave us all the photos (with watermarks) on CDs to decide which ones we wanted prints of. Then when we got the prints, they came with CDs of all the photos (including the ones we didn't order prints of) in higher resolution and without the watermarks. In both Color and Black & White no less. We continue to be utterly confused when Zoe's mother expresses vague dissatisfaction with the photographers.

And then you realize it's Zoe's mother who you've known for years and hasn't changed much and stop being confused. 8-)

Well, that certainly helps with any surprise, but I doubt she will ever cease to confuse me.
