JEREMY: I’m disgusted with the bride and groom mentioned in“Newly-Weds Cry ‘Wedding Photographer from Hell’ but Photog Says ‘I Edited 900 Plus Photos…'”. Out of 900 photographs which the photographer sent them, they pick and chose 20 to shame him. Those pictures were really terrible, and have made a mockery of the photographer. Then after doing that, they now want free stuff from the bridal studio.

Look at these photos. Are they as bad as the whole photoshoot was made out to be by the “bride that cried wolf”? Seriously folks, they’re at least of an acceptable standard, which comes when you pay only what? S$3000 for for a whole bridal package including photographer on the actual day, gowns, photo albums and makeup? Bride that cried wolf, what did you expect if you choose to be cheap over your big day? People pay upwards of S$5000 for a package like this, ok.

Already, the photographer, who was only paid S$350 for the whole shoot was doing his best. I’m thinking he’s an amateur, because no pro photographer will edit 900 photos and turn all of them over except the usable ones. He still doesn’t deserve to be bullied like that until he cannot face people.

We cannot allow such a cheap couple to exploit the sympathy of netizens just to extort free stuff of which they are undeserving. After seeing the full picture, such shame tactics only go to show how shameful cheap couple can be.

    In my point of view , if the bridal studio can offer package that $3k plus then do it without complain , I believe they are not the only couple take up this offer , so do you mean those sign up this offer package is cheap couple on their big day…. in that case the bridal studio should not offer $3k package

    First off let me clarify by saying that the couple DID NOT want free stuff (aka extort) from the bridal company. If they did. What did they want? Those were not stated.
    SECONDLY. if you even bother to follow the newly wedded couple, you would have noticed that they did not release any information regarding the bridal shop photographer. They even denied revealing such information.
    The photographer posted a comment stating and I quote “I am the photographer for the day”
    HENCE. Before you start posting blasphemy on these type of websites trying to defame people who are happily married because of your sick sense of humor.
    I suggest checking your facts.

    I read the original post by the couple. They did select the worst of their photos for the amusement of their friends. The post was public, but from the tenor and content of the post I don’t think they intended to “shame” the photographer, who was NOT named. They did not ask anyone to give them freebies. If anything the sense I got from the bride was it was a lesson learnt by them for hiring a photographer from a pool as part of a package from a reputable bridal salon instead of shopping around. The uproar wasn’t caused by her. The tone of her post was more “lol, this is what we got. Oh well. For you guys to be amused!”

    The uproar was caused by netizens. If you want to say “we”, it is “we” who blew the matter up by sharing with overly-emotional language (e.g. “if this happened to me I’ll kill the photographer”)

      maybe you didn’t read their post properly.
      “Get angry? Check.
      Shed a few tears over them? Done.
      Post some of the best (of the worst) on social media for amusement? Absolutely! ”

      and oh.. “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.”

      so saying all that but adding a one liner of “Don’t take this the wrong way though – this is not a flame and shame post.” means it’s alright? wow, just wow.

      They ask for compensation did they? Why in the first place when most of the photos are reasonably good? What is their utmost intention? How come the bride cried when received the photos. To my knowledge, most of the time photographers do not give all the photos but only selected ones. Did they received the benefit to receive entire photos?

      You obviously did not read till the end of the post by the couple.

      And I quote, “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.”

      How is this not shaming them? The post is malicious, with the intent to bring awareness to the bad service rendered by the company. The “hilarious” stance is just a mask atop the anger of this whiny bride.

    Jeremy if it was ur wedding and u plan so much to get this kinda of photos as memories:) what would u do ??? Speak when u put yourself in their shoes

    Is this article for real? The ‘good’ photos that have been posted up, are you seriously saying that they’re acceptable? They are not ridiculously terrible, they’re just bad photos but not ones that you’ll completely cringe at.

    I wouldn’t even pay 30$, let alone 3000$ for photos of this standard. In fact, even if he paid me 3000$ I wouldn’t let him do my wedding photography.

    I don’t know who you’re trying to protect or shame, but I think it’s really obvious that either

    1) you are completely biased against the couple

    Or

    2) you’ve got absolutely zero appreciation for photography and anything visual

    Let me just end by saying without any form of exaggeration whatsoever, that my 12 year old Niece can take way better photos with an iPhone.

    This is such an opinionated piece. The couple did not ask for freebies btw. There is no evidence to support this claim. Also, they never denied there were good photos. What exactly is the point of writing this?

    Than u better go for expensive package Nicole, is about 20K , than on the actual wedding day u will don’t know what will happen to u, because the actual wedding day photographer is still pay at $300 only.
    I m professional wedding photographer, I did work with those studio, end up I stop shooting for them. Now I m retired.
    To me I see the photos was ok, acceptable.
    Is the couple want to creat the news.

    I do not understand why the photographer had to also include bad photos when sending to the couple ?
    it is understandable that during a photoshoot not all photos turn out how you want them, but this is the photographers job to filter out and discard photos that are bad.
    If he had filtered it out , all would have been fine.

    Jaclyn didn’t shame the photographer, it’s the photographer that claimed credits himself in public.. however..

    “- 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. ”

    She WILL shame the photographer/bridal studio in public.
    so those exceptionally bad 21 photos I’ve seen from bride and groom, but not-so exceptionally-but-still-acceptable less than 50 photos I’ve seen from the bridal studio. so if bridal studio can release the remaining 750 consistent quality pictures that will totally discredit the couple’s claims.

    Nicole, I believe they did ask for a refund.

    The photos that the bride shared is terrible … Totally different from those shared above …. The photographer is not bad .. Keep up your work …

    What you pay is what you get, but seriously the photo is as bad as the bride show. To the photographer, don’t give up. Success come after you clear all sorts of obstacles.
