Another question asks whether pictures of erva are erva. My question assumes, for the sake of argument, that they are, and asks: Once a woman gets married, her hair becomes ervah, so are all pictures taken before she got married, where her hair is exposed, assur for men besides her relatives to see? Please give sources.

Are pictures of chametz assur to see/own on pesach? – Double AA Aug 3 '12 at 6:44
@SethJ, the question above is. And what's wrong with arguendo? – msh210 Aug 3 '12 at 18:28
@SethJ "Is the question..." Yes I think so. – Double AA Aug 3 '12 at 18:56
@sethJ ,yes that is my question on retroactive pictures. – sam Aug 3 '12 at 19:00
@sam I would only close the question if it fits into one of 5 categories outlined in the FAQ. Not liking it is not one of them. – Double AA Aug 3 '12 at 23:39

No. I don't have any sources but one can definitely see pictures of uncovered hair of brides in wedding photos posted proudly in the homes of great rabbis.
