“Get angry? Check. Shed a few tears over them? Done. Post some of the best (of the worst) on social media for amusement? Absolutely!”
Singapore bride, Jaclyn Ying wrote the above as the beginning of a rant posted to her Facebook page, accompanying some glorious-ly terrible wedding photos.
Ying and her husband had paid to have a professional photographer as part of a wedding package they had purchased. It included 'professional' photography on their wedding day from a reputable bridal shop.
“Before we signed on, we were told that while we couldn’t choose our photographer, the standard of the talent pool was consistent,” Ying writes on her Facebook post.
After being told about the package option, the young couple were shown a portfolio of ‘actual day photos’ and thought they looked alright so signed on thinking, ‘how bad can they be?’
The answer to that – hilariously bad.
“It’s bad guys. Like first-date-and-you-clog-the-toilet-with-your-pangsai bad,” Ying wrote, “or, trust-a-fart-and-a-bit-of-poop-comes-out bad.”
On her Facebook post, Ying says that the couple are not trying to shame anyone by sharing the photos.
“We just wanted to share some of these hilariously bad photos with everyone,” she writes.
The bride notes that she hasn’t edited any of the photos herself and asks guests if they could share any good photos from the day with her. Ying adds, “don’t worry, our ‘pro’ photographer here set the bar quite low.”
At least she has a good sense of humour about it.
