Bride-To-Be Blames Photographer For Fat-Shaming Her In Pictures, So Photographer Reveals Her Side Of The Story

Published 6 years ago

With internet flooding with various photographers offering their services, it’s quite tricky to find the perfect one to capture your big day. Bride-to-be Katie Liepold was recently on a lookout for one too, but, unfortunately, her experience was rather awful. She claims that the photographer has greatly offended her and her future husband by altering their looks in their engagement pictures.

It all started when they hired Tower Photography to take their pictures. The couple didn’t really plan on taking engagement photos, but it came with the package, so they went for it. On the day of the shoot, it all seemed to be going great, they thought they and the photographer Linda Silvestri have bonded: “We laughed, we talked, we joked, we shared stories.”

However, when the couple received their photos they were a little shocked. “She actually photoshopped one picture of us skinnier,” Liepold explained, offended. According to her, they never asked for the photographer to do such a thing and were hurt when saw the result. This made them reconsider their choice of photographer and they decided to hire someone else for their wedding day.

On the other hand, there are always two sides of the coin. The photographer herself posted a rant about the couple on Facebook, stating that they weren’t that great either. They were picky, demanding, and displeased with some of the choices they demanded the photographer to make, even though she mentioned it might not turn out well in the pictures. This rant was posted before the story got on the news, and since then has been removed. Still, until we hear from the photographer herself, we need to keep in mind that this is a one-sided story. Scroll down to see the picture that offended the couple and read the photographer’s opinion.
