It's a Bridezilla/Choosing Beggar crossover episode!
Redditor sadphotogirl is—you guessed it—a photographer, and one of the things making her sad is her aunt's insistense that she be on the job at her wedding, and work for free.
She asked the "Am I The A-hole?" Subreddit whether she'd be the jerk if she said no, writing:
So last week I got my aunt's wedding invitation, she's having it in Hawaii and that's really exciting, as I have never been there. I of course sent out my RSVP.
I am a photographer... so you may see where this is going.
Last night she emailed me to let me know that she wants me to be her photographer, for free.
I want to attend as a guest, not a photographer. I called her and expressed that I would not do that, especially not for free. There has been a fuss in the family.
I could do it but, I know that if I say yes to her then my other family will exploit this.
We are not very close but they are pulling the family card. The gist is that the wedding is very expensive and that having to pay a photographer up to $3000 is really going to hurt their budget.
