Despite the fact that she is a dog groomer, a Reddit user stated she tried to help a friend out on her wedding day by taking photos. Despite the fact that she mostly takes photos of the dogs she grooms to publish on social media, she admits to being a capable photographer.
When her budget-conscious friends asked her to photograph their wedding, she agreed to do so for $250 (about R3 600) for the 10-hour affair. Everything looked to be in order as the day began. "On the day of the wedding, I'm driving about with the bride, photographing her as she goes from appointment to appointment before the ceremony.
I photograph the ceremony and the reception, as well as speeches and people mingling "According to the photographer, she started at 11:00 a.m. and planned to finish around 19:30 p.m. "Around 5 p.m., dinner is brought, and I'm informed I can't eat because I'm the photographer; in fact, they didn't even reserve a place for me.
I'm growing bored of doing this for close to nothing, and I'm beginning to regret it "According to the photographer. She informed the groom that she would be leaving in 20 minutes to get something to eat and drink because there was no open bar and she was out of water in her water bottle.
When the groom told her she had to either work as a photographer or leave without pay, things started to go awry. "I asked if he was sure, and he said yes, so I deleted all the pictures I shot in front of him and left stating I wasn't his photographer anymore," recounts the photographer, who now wonders if she was too harsh.
"I would have paid $250 merely for a sip of cool water and a place to sit for 5 minutes if I had been handed $250," the photographer says. While on their honeymoon, the couple avoided social media. "A number of people have contacted them regarding photos on their page, but they haven't responded," the photographer adds.
Another Reddit user questioned about the initial agreement because the photographer and the bridal couple were pals. "Even though I was simply going as a guest, I had reserved a table and made a food order. They took it away since I was no longer a guest, but rather a hired worker "The photographer went into further detail.
