Getting the photographs from your wedding edited and developed is a huge part of your big day, when you can see everyone together and have those memories with you forever.

But for one woman, this experience has been a nightmare as the wedding photographer has not responded to texts or calls when chasing the snaps, and even gave a picture from the wedding to the bride's sister-in-law before giving it to the bride.

The wedding photographer is a friend of the sister-in-law but the newlywed bride was still shocked that she received an image on a Christmas card from her wedding before her.

Taking to Reddit, the woman, who remained anonymous, explained: "We used a friend of my sister-in-law as our wedding photographer. This woman is a professional photographer, and was very formal in terms of our communication throughout the process.

"However, after the wedding, she stopped responding to my text and emails. I only texted twice and emailed once, as I knew the Thanksgiving holiday was coming up soon after our wedding, and I didn't want to put much pressure on her in terms of editing our images."

The woman went onto explain that she reached out to her sister-in-law who spoke to the photographer pal who assured her that all was well and she was still editing the images.

But the next day, the newlywed woman received a Christmas card from her brother and sister-in-law with a photo on it that made her furious.

She said: "I received a Christmas card from my brother and sister-in-law that was clearly a professional photograph from my wedding.

"I was angry- I didn't receive any sort of 'friends and family' discount from this woman, and she sent the pictures that I had paid for to my relatives without even bothering to answer any texts or emails from me.

"We were recently at a holiday party together, and I called her out in front of a couple of people, saying that I was so surprised to receive a picture from my wedding in a Christmas card when I hadn't even received any sort of correspondence from her at all when I was the one who paid for the pictures."

The photographer responded by saying that she was rude and dramatic for calling her out in front of people.

In response, many have supported the newlywed bride as one person wrote: "This photographer gave the photos you paid for to someone else, and didn't even ask you first. This is insanely unprofessional behavior [sic]."

While another stated: "You're being very reasonable here and her actions are indefensible."
