A local photographer who double-booked reached out to me in an emergency to shoot a wedding in their place. They had another person who was supposed to shoot for the photographer but they flaked out. We both have our own individual businesses, btw. The bride adored me and the pictures I took, but of course the photographer she hired will edit the photos since he was originally hired and he has a moody style while I on the other hand edit light and airy.
Now of course I'm attached to the images I took and I'm very proud of the work I do, so I am extremely tempted to use my fave images from the wedding on my website portfolio. How much of a jerk would I be to do that even if I waited for him to share images first? I want to ask him but at the same time I'm scared he will resist, even though I feel entitled to use what I want since I was the one who showed up. How would anyone else proceed?
