You are your own worst enemy

I have said it many times.

  • Brides are their own worst enemy if they hire a $300 photographer.
  • Photogs are their own worst enemy if they include awful photos with the good.

Here’s an illustration of both points at once:

Singaporean Couple’s Awful Wedding Photos Go Viral After Hiring the Worst Photographer Ever

This is a meme now; google “singapore bad wedding photos” and recoil in horror…

Needles to say., a good wedding photographer a) does not take a significant number of bad photos like that, and b) does not share them if s/he does. (And c) does not do such an awful job editing). Bad flash! Bad composition! Bad moments! And Bad editing. Ouch, ouch, ouch.

You are as good as your worst photos.
