What happens when you pay for your big day to turn out on film like like Cinderella, but it ends up looking more like The Hunchback of Notre Dame?

That’s what happened to one newly-wed, Jaclyn Ying.

Just look at the photos and see for yourself!

Still, Jacyln hasn’t lost her wit, even as she narrated the disastrous results of her wedding photoshoot, and pursues the bridal shop for a refund.

“So, what do you do when you finally receive your actual wedding day photos and find yourself sorely disappointed in them?

Get angry? Check.
Shed a few tears over them? Done.
Post some of the best (of the worst) on social media for amusement? Absolutely!

Here’s the lowdown – we got one of those “bao ka liao” wedding packages that included actual day photography from a pretty reputable bridal shop. Before we signed on, we were told that while we couldn’t choose our photographer, the standard of the talent pool was consistent. Naturally (and being Singaporean), we asked, “sure annot”. And were promptly shown a portfolio of actual day photos.

They looked alright, and so we signed on thinking, “okay la hor, how bad can they be.”

It’s bad guys. Like, first-date-and-you-clog-the-toilet-with-your-pangsai bad. Or, trust-a-fart-and-a-bit-of-poop-comes-out bad. (I’m not saying any of those things happened to me before)

Anyway, we’re looking for some redress from the shop at the moment, but nothing is going to take away the fact that our wedding photos by this dude are pretty much ruined. What’s more, he was our only “pro” photog for that day. This stag worked solo, man.

Don’t take this the wrong way though – this is not a flame and shame post. We just wanted to share some of these hilariously bad photos with everyone, so sorry ar if your unglam face is in this.

Last points:
– I sumpah/swear I never do any extra edits to the photos. Everything here (colour, lighting, cropping etc) is “as is” from the DVD the bridal shop gave us.
– Bride-to-be friends: If you want to know the deets (bridal shop/photographer’s name etc), let me know in private and I will point you away from them.
– Wedding guests: If you have any nice (don’t worry, our “pro” photog here set the bar quite low) photos, please share them with us through Whatsapp, Dropbox etc!”

But the photographer, Chung Siew Goh, accused Jaclyn of cherry-picking and finding fault with his photos.

He said he put in a lot of work, and even edited over 900 photos for the couple.

Take a look at some of these shots which he has highlighted to support his skills.

Not too bad lah, right?
