I'm not going to make many new friends posting this but it infuriates me everytime I attend or witness a wedding where the photographer or videographer underdress..
It is someones' 'BIG' day for a reason so pls dress appropriately for the day!
Why is it we are sometimes/often the WORST dressed in a banquet hall?
And its not even about the fact that you're being paid and hired.
Rather, its because you're so visible being physically so close to the couple whole day.
Yes, if you can stand one corner and shoot with a 200mm far far away and guest do not see you then its ok..
Do not place yourself next to the couple who has spent so much effort and $$ dressing up..YES you spoil the picture for the guest..
And even if you're shooting under the sun is not an excuse, it comes with the job, bring a change of clothing if you have to for day & evening..
I know its subjective but something decent may be
Min- polo tee & jeans not torn
Proper- shirt & pants/jeans not torn
V Gd- tie & pants
Every couple hiring anyone should really ask what are they wearing, to their list of questions.. paisay, thks for reading my rantings..
btw, I'm not Samantha hor, I oso wear tee, sandals & berms to Orchard Rd all the time, just not to a wedding..
