BRIDE SUES WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

WEDDING by KRISS on 30 october 2015

BRIDE SUES WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER So this is how it goes down.
A bride sues her wedding photographer for using photos from her wedding to advertise and promote his business.

That’s just nice ! Of course this is happening in the US but could be happening anywhere nowadays really.

As wedding photographers and people aware that not everyone is open minded and intelligent we always have included a clause on our contracts allowing us to use the photos we make on weddings for our promotion, unless the bride and groom tell us otherwise.

But this is really mean and infuriating.
How the hell is a photographer supposed to advertise and show their work if their clients don’t allow them to show what they’ve done.

I understand some photos can be inappropriate or sometimes people don’t want to be recognized or no close ups but as long as the clients are respected, there really shouldn’t be any problem using the images you create to show what you can do.

This is the link to the article where I discover the news.
Again, I don’t have all the details of the story.
Maybe the photographer shot the wedding night and created a porn site with that ? Who knows ? But if he just used some traditional classic weeding shots to make a living, this is just outrageous !
