A photographer who deleted all photos in his camera right in front of the groom after he was denied food at the wedding has asked people for their opinion.
“I’m not really a photographer, I’m a dog groomer. I take lots of photos of dogs all day to put on my Facebook and Instagram, it’s “my thing” if that makes sense,” he wrote on Reddit.
A friend who wanted to save money convinced him to click his wedding pictures. “I told him it’s not really my forte but he convinced me by saying he didn’t care if they were perfect,” he said.
The photographer agreed to do the shoot for $250. He started working around 11 am and was due to finish at around 7:30 pm. “Around 5 pm, food is being served and I was told I cannot stop to eat because I need to be a photographer; in fact, they didn’t save me a spot at any table,” he wrote.
He continued, “I’m getting tired and at this point kinda regretting doing this for next to nothing. It’s also unbelievably hot: the venue is in an old veteran’s legion and it’s like 110F and there’s no AC.” To add to this, there was no facility to get water.
He then told the groom that he needed a 20-minute break to get something to eat and drink. However, the groom told him that “I need to either be a photographer or leave without pay.”
The photographer added, “With the heat, being hungry, being generally annoyed at the circumstances, I asked if he was sure, and he said yes, so I deleted all the photos I took in front of him and took off saying I’m not his photographer anymore. If I was to be paid $250, honestly at that point I would have paid $250 just for a glass of cold water and somewhere to sit for 5min.”
The post also mentioned that the newlyweds went on their honeymoon and have been off social media, while people have been asking them about the wedding photos.
