It’s a shame that just last week we had two separate cases regarding rescuing wedding images…
Whilst talking to one bride, she regretfully acknowledged that the photographs were the only keepsake that she will have to enjoy in years to come. Yes, she had heard that the cake is eaten, the band fall silent, the flowers droop and the dress becomes… tighter…however, she still ignored the professional photographer’s attempts to prevent the pending calamity and in an attempt to save money booked Uncle Keith, a keen amateur, to replace the professional photographer.
All images were captured as small jpegs.
The bride and groom do now at least have a somewhat downsized wedding album, but with the costs for necessary digital work, scanning, printing and manipulation, the (not so happy) couple have only made a saving of just over eighty-six pounds compared to what they would have paid for the stress-free services of the originally booked professional.
It’s sad that so many major once-in-a-lifetime events are going to be lost for future generations because of similar circumstances.
Having a camera does not make a photographer…
