A photographer has gone viral after he deleted wedding photos of a couple due to not being given food at the wedding ceremony. Through his post on Reddit, an American website, the man narrated that he is not a professional photographer but rather someone who loves taking pictures of his dogs and putting them up on his social media platforms.
He adds that a friend that wanted to save some money approached him and asked him to cover his wedding at a fee of 250 dollars approximately Shs 880,000.
He was hesitant but later agreed to do the shoot and on the day of the ceremony. He started working at around 11 am and was scheduled to finish at 7:30 pm.
At the time of serving food, the photographer says he was told he couldn’t stop to eat because he needed to keep capturing the event.
At this point, all he needed was some water and rest which he was denied.
“I told the groom I needed a 20-minute break to get something to eat and drink. However, the groom told me that I need to either be the photographer or leave without pay.”
The photographer added that with the heat, being hungry, being generally annoyed at the circumstances, he asked if the groom was sure about his decision, and he said yes, so he deleted all the photos in front of him and took off saying he was not his photographer anymore.
“If I was to be paid $250 but, at that point, I would have paid all the pay to sit for 5 minutes and have a glass of water.”
