Destination bachelor and bachelorette parties with private villas and rose gold balloons, photobooths for guests to capture every Instagram-worthy moment, perfectly curated party favors and signature couples cocktails by expert mixologists--it's easy to lose the plot and forget why you're planning a wedding in the first place. So, when a wedding photographer decided to recount a horror story from the job on the gloriously petty and judgmental "Wedding Shaming" group of Reddit, people were scandalized by this budget-obsessed bride.
When I was just starting out in photography (it's more of a hobby now that pays sometimes) I took one of these (low pay for full day shoots). I had a few photos to show off, but not pro-level portfolio.
I charged the lady $600 for 8 hours (I know, I was new and we all gotta start somewhere right?) at this really swanky local place. Old (like 1800's plantation) house converted into a wedding venue.
