Getting your photos back from the wedding photographer is one of those nerve-wrecking moments. Chances are you’ve spent a decent chunk of change on your photographer, and you want these wedding photos to have captured every shot perfectly while making you look flawless. If they don’t? Let’s just say you will not be a happy camper.
While some couples might hide bad wedding photos in the closet, we love how these newlyweds from Singapore chose to share the almost hilariously bad photos on social media with all their friends. Bride Jaclyn Ying, who said the couple chose a “pretty reputable” studio to shoot their wedding, wrote this post on Facebook:
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.
– 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!
Enjoy the photos!
