Some people might want their wedding photos to get a little digital zhuzh, but too much can be off-putting — and even insulting.
One bride is offended after her wedding photographer handed her photos back with a full-on influencer-style Photoshop makeover. She says she never wanted any digital edits. The photographer says she should be grateful. She took to Reddit to ask for advice.
About a month back, my husband and I got married. We had this very small church wedding with just family and friends. My friend,David, is a professional photographer and is kinda famous in our city for his amazing work. When I told him about my wedding, he offered to do the photos for free as a wedding gift.
Yesterday we received the wedding pics, and well, he’s edited the heck out of my face and body. First thing I noticed was that he’s made my waist smaller to get that ‘hourglass’ appearance. The next thing he did was to edit my rather pointy nose into a small, button-like one. In some pictures, where my side profile is visible, he’s edited out the dorsal hump. The end result still looks like me, but also like every generic Instagram model you see online. I quite like my nose, and I quite liked the way I looked on my wedding day.
