come on la...come here with a dubious story. At least make sure it sound decent.
How u know she was out for fresh air when popping champagne? How u know she didn't capture the the march in ?? Maybe tat's why she's paid so much ...NINJA photographer...u dun see her, SO CONFIRM + CHOP photojournalistic.
Like I always said, anything can happen. Even the funniest things which you cannot imagine happening. That's murphy's law.
Hor say liao.....moved from Photo Biz to Kopitiam.
Maybe...maybe the real PG is the true ninja photog, you never see him one. The girl is probably just a relative learning to shoot the wedding, the pro is never seen
i say...before you jump to any conclusion of the photog, ask your friend to show you the end result. i am sure many of us will be curious too.
i think should be the couple friend invited to take snapshots.
with an 18-135 in typical ballroom, should either be firing flash every shot or must be a master in removing high iso noise.
anyway, as long the couple dont make noise...take it easy. the only way to know for sure is to ask them.
You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.
Unless either the vendor or the client is in the thread.. there seems a lot of missing pieces with regards to the dealings between the couple and the PG. There maybe reason that outsiders are not aware of?
Anyway, once I covered a wedding dinner for my friend, technically FOC ($50 red packet), I also make sure I'm around at all the critical moments, plus all the table shots that the couple wanted. Whether paid or not paid, there have to be certain level of commitment once a person agrees to the job.

I think TS should really start this thread after seeing the images from your friends and ask them really what happen.
There is no point speculating based on personal opinion.
What you see don't always translate to what is the real life....
I won't jump into conclusion to be honest....
Problem is I'm an avid photographer myself and I have great admiration for wedding photographers.
The groom also happens to be my distant cousin's grandson (My old friend turns out to be my family's long lost relative when we traced our roots not too long ago-just to make a long story short) . BTW I 89 in case you're wondering.
Now the latest just in:
The photographer was hired by the wedding planner for tea ceremony but not dinner. But on the eve of wedding, couple decided to have the photographer's service to complement the videographer. The photographer declined the dinner job as he was committed to other projects and hence recommended another stand-in photographer. That's why there was a separate price.
I'm standing on the turf of "customer" and wonder why pay so much to get so little. We (relatives) were asking what happened? But I guess what's done is done.

Actually, the comment came from the wedding planner and he apologised profusely for the quality of work when he reviewed the shots midway. I can't do anything as I'm a guest and my job is to eat and give Hong Baos. In my mind I told myself that if I had a hand in it, I would have got you guys but who am I to be meddlesome.
I think HW maybe can enlighten us some more, you mention that 4k for dinner, 2.5k for tea ceremony, so it this case the standby photographer is charging more than the main photographer? and the price given is what the photographer charged? does it include the videography package as well?
