What if Bride is Harrassed by a Wedding Photographer?

sad groom and bride

I have heard of some stories of brides harrassed by wedding photographer.

My thoughts:

In fact, at this point in time I have many thoughts in my mind.

One of them is that the photographer is unethical. Even though he is the photographer and many times, he would need to help adjust the bridal gowns such that the bride will look her best, at the same time, he must take care of the welfare of the bride.

I’m not sure how to put it but I think you know what I meant.

The wedding couples (both the bride and groom) must be well taken care of such that they enjoy the whole wedding photoshoot session.

I still remember the joy as well as the discomfort we went through during our wedding photoshot.

We spent 12 hours in the bridal studio and I pity my wife for having had to endure the long hours of having her make-up and hair-do done. It was not easy. The hours were long and we were quite mentally drained out when it was about 3pm.

We had quick bite for lunch and we remembered we had to smile and pose for the photographs.

Luckily, our wedding photographer was very professional and comical at the same time.

That is why when I read the forum, I was tremendously angered by the treatment on the bride by the part-time photographer. I feel that the photographer, be it a full time or part time, has no right to be in physical contact with the bride at all times.

Even if he wants to adjust the bride’s face or gowns, he must always ask for permission from the bride. The bride is a lady after all who ought to be respected. Moreover, she is the customer.

I know, by right the bride can file a complain. However, I know there may be times the couple may find it to be quite embarrassing, especially for the bride.

It is afterall a once-a-lifetime experience and many chose to let such unpleasant experience to pass and move on.

I was not surprised when the other brides in the forum told her to let go of this incident and move on.

Sounds easy for them to say but I’m sure it isn’t for the bride.

This was a bad experience and would have somehow left a scar in the whole wedding planning process.

Now, the bride even has phobia when she recalled the incident.

What do you think she should do?

I think there is no escape from the chore of choosing a wedding photographer.

Before my wedding, I dreaded meeting new people. I can’t imagine talking and negotiating with new faces I have never met before and pretending to be friendly towards them.

In society, we wear different faces. You may be a loud person who needs to network with strangers due to your work nature. Maybe you are a Public Relation Officer. However, you may eb a quiet and reserved person when you are alone.

During my wedding preparation last year, I think I have broken my own record of times I negotiated. I had to talk to differen wedding service providers ranging from employers of bridal studios, banquet managers to photographers.

Personally, I think part of me also like to make new friends and thus, it is not 100% torturing.

When selecting a wedding photographer, it is important that you need to personally talk to the photographer.

Lately, I had this email from a bride who almost fainted when the photographer-cum-hubby’s friend over pormised and under delivered. Initially due to tight budget, this bride made do with a semi-professional photographer whom her hubby recommended.

Choosing Wedding Photographers

As Featured On Ezine Articles

When choosing photographer, it is important to know some of the better ones through word of mouths. It is only when you can get first hand feedback from your friend or whoever recommend from.

Even if there is any that is not recommended, ask why so that you can take note of common pitfalls.

I remembered my wife contacted this photographer who had a fantatsic web site with wonderful work pieces featured. However, the photographer was very quiet when my wife met him to look at his work. He admit that he was still very new and still shy at times.

My wife thanked him for his honesty and gave him some suggestions to improve on his sales technique.

There were many times that my wife had to cold call at least thirty photographers ranging from freelance to professional.

December 2006 was a hot period and many better photographers were booked. To avoid having no more contact to call, my wife asked for recommendations from the previous photographer.

Hong Kong Wedding

My wife’s cousin will be holding her wedding dinner in November this year.

She has just sent us her wedding photos and we must say, we still love their Hong Kong photographs.

They are totally different from Singapore’s photography style. Previously, I posted my wife’s friend’s wedding photos taken in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong’s wedding gowns are much more beautiful and have more variety.

Some local friends of mine, who have deep pocket, do fly to Hong Kong to engage their bridal services.

Some even had their make-up artists and photographers flown to Hong Kong with them.

If you are engaging their services and using their services in overseas, you would need to pay for all their expenses such as lodgings, food, air-fares and transport.

Wedding Solemnisation

This was my first time to have gone through a Buddhist Solemnisation.

It was held at Marina Mandarin Singapore.

Wedding Programme Schedule for Solemnisation:
1. Guests to be seated at 6pm sharp/ all lay out to be done
2. MC announced the purpose of gathering today
3. Singers sang a love song to the wedding couple
4. MC announced the march in (in sequence) of the groom’s parents, bride’s parents, solemniser and the wedding couple
5. Wedding Vows
6. Words of gratitude from newly wed to parents
7. Words of advice and blessings from bride and groom’s parents
8. Word of gratitude from newly wed to relatives and friends

The past solemnisation I had attended was either done at the Registry of Marriage or in churches.
