Couple Shocked To Hear Photographer Bagging Their Guests On Wedding Video
A couple received a video of unedited footage from their wedding day and were shocked to hear the photographer talking rudely about their guests!
UK couple Lois and Lee Ghost-Adderley hired the services of photographer and filmmaker James David to capture their special day. When he offered to send them the unedited video (for an extra charge) they were mortified to hear him bagging their guests. In the clip, David can be heard calling the couple’s friends and family “fucking mugs”. “What the fuck is wrong with these people?” he says.
The couple explain that they didn’t get to see the raw footage until a year after their wedding. “We booked the company quite last-minute, but we received the video back very quickly,” Lois said to news.com.au.
“I had some niggles about the film as a lot of the footage was of plus-ones and very little of my family. That said, we were still very happy after our wedding celebrations and I didn’t want to rock the boat, so we didn’t complain.”
It was only when they realised that footage of their first dance wasn’t in the original video, that they approached him for some extra tapes.
“He messaged us to check if we would like to download anything before he took the footage down, so we took it as an opportunity to ask if he had the footage from our first dance that included the original audio,” Lois said.
“He said he did, and could in fact send us all raw footage for an additional $185.”
This extra charge was ON TOP of the $3000 they had already paid. But it meant a lot to the couple to have this footage so they bit the bullet and agreed to the sum.
“We felt like this was a bit steep, but it meant a lot to us to have this footage so we agreed,” Lois added. “It does leave a sour taste in the mouth when we look back at everything now.”
“Unfortunately these things happen – little slips happen and I must take responsibility; there’s not much more I can do,” James David said about the incident. “I will be moving forward with my team; my guys will be getting in contact to resolve the situation. We can only apologise and take responsibility. We will be sending a letter of apology in the next couple of days and dealing with the matter privately.”
